Upcoming events

"Life Empowers Women" is the theme for next month's Pro-Life Women's Conference
It is shaping up to be a busy summer for Secular Pro-Life! Here's where you'll find us.

Wednesday, May 3 (tomorrow!) in San Francisco
David Daleiden, head of the Center for Medical Progress, will be arraigned at the San Francisco Superior Court (400 McAllister Street) San Francisco Hall of Justice, 850 Bryant Street; sorry for the last-minute change! Prosecutors claim that his undercover investigation of the Planned Parenthood "baby parts" scandal violated California privacy laws. His attorneys say that's nonsense; the videos were recorded at conferences and restaurants where anyone could overhear the abortion workers' damning statements. Although the exact time of David's arraignment is still uncertain, he will need to be at the courthouse by 8:30 am. His supporters are gathering outside the building at that time to show him moral support. Our very own Terrisa Bukovinac, who is also the president of Pro-Life Future of San Francisco, will make a statement to the press. Then everyone will join David inside once the court is in session.

Friday, June 23 through Sunday, June 25 in Orlando
We are thrilled to co-sponsor the second annual Pro-Life Women's Conference. Last year's event in Dallas was so inspiring and informative. Come by the Secular Pro-Life exhibit booth and say hello!

Saturday, July 1, in Milwaukee
Secular Pro-Life president Kelsey Hazzard will once again present at the National Right to Life Convention on making the secular case against abortion. This annual convention brings people together from all fifty states. The convention will begin on Thursday, June 29, with Kelsey's presentation on the final day.

Saturday, August 5, in St. Davids, PA (just outside Philadelphia)
The Consistent Life Network will hold its 30th anniversary conference at Eastern University from Friday, August 4 through Sunday, August 6. Kelsey will speak in a Saturday afternoon session opposite Catholic advocate Tony Magiano. Other workshop topics include sex trafficking, restorative justice, messaging, pacifism, and the just war theory.

Saturday, October 21 in Pittsburgh
Life/Peace/Justice is back! This wonderful conference is organized by our dear friends at Rehumanize International (a.k.a. the organization formerly known as Life Matters Journal). Kelsey will be among the speakers; the full list has not been finalized, but like Consistent Life, this conference typically covers a wide range of threats to human life and dignity. This year, the pro-life student organizations from Pitt and Duquesne will co-host.
