As you may have seen in our previous announcements, Monica Snyder has joined Secular Pro-Life as our Executive Director! If you missed Monica's introduction as ED, you can watch it here.

Monica hit the ground running with an appearance at the Rehumanize International conference this past Saturday, presenting "Deconstructing Three Pro-Choice Myths."

This month Monica jumped in on Midland, Texas podcast Schu Bro's Unfiltered, talking about the secular position in the pro-life movement.

Kelsey was busy this August. She presented "Secular Standpoint: Why Abortion Still Sucks" online to the University of Ottawa. She is serving as a Students for Life Stevens Fellowship mentor, where she's been paired up with a homeschool student from Virginia. She  also contributed an article to the summer issue of Human Life Review arguing reversing Roe would correct an egregious violation of church and state. An excerpt:

The Court treated the Stoics, Jewish scholars, Aristotle, and modern-day physicians as equally valid, competing sources of wisdom on the question of when a human life begins. They are not. No offense to Aristotle, but he never saw a sonogram.

We were at the Rehumanize Conference on Labor Day weekend! If you didn't make it this year, mark your calendar for next!
