Pro-Life Speaker? We Can Come to You!
I pray you have had a restful summer! As the fall approaches, we want to ask your help in spreading the pro-life message. If there are any groups, such as schools, youth groups, adult civic or church groups, etc., which need a pro-life speaker, please consider inviting a Louisiana Right to Life team member in. Our team covers the state, and we can come to you for little or no cost!

Take a look at some topics we offer , ranging from stem cell research to assisted suicide. For example, I will be leading a " Pro-Life Persuasion Crash Course " on Sept. 8 in Covington. We may be preaching to the choir sometimes, but hey, the choir has to sing well to change hearts and minds for life!

We are here to be in service to you and this great cause! Give us a call today!

For a Pro-Life Louisiana,
Benjamin Clapper
Starting College? You May be Challenged,
but Hold True to Your Pro-Life Convictions
Ben Parks, LSU, and Alex Lucas, Loyola, talk with PULSE students about college activism.
Are you starting college this month, or have you already started? Not sure what you are going to encounter? Do you believe the values and beliefs you leave home with won't be challenged or even changed during the next four years? If you’re not sure, you are definitely not alone. In fact, according to Students for Life of America, 46 percent of women enter college pro-life, but only about 27 percent of these women are pro-life when they graduate. And men, this happens to you, too!
