Six pro-life advocates have been honored with $100,000 prizes this year. They are:
Jeanne Head, who left her career as an obstetrics nurse to become an advocate for life at the United Nations
Terri Schiavo Life and Hope Network, which fights euthanasia and works with the families of the severely disabled
Douglas Johnson of the National Right to Life Committee
Reverend Alveda King
Marie Smith of the Parliamentary Network for Critical Issues
And, last but certainly not least: Kristan Hawkins of Students for Life of America!
Although SecularProLife.org is not a student organization in the traditional sense-- we welcome members of all ages and are not connected to a particular campus-- most of us are on the younger side. Students for Life of America has always been incredibly supportive of us. I know that they will put the prize money to excellent use.
Congratulations to all of the winners!
