Last week-end, John and I led an awesome teen conference in Lincoln, Nebraska.Â Over 150 teens turned out to show their support for the unborn and learn what they could do to change hearts and minds and further educate themselves on the abortion issue.Â The talks included defending the pro-life position, how to use the GFL Curriculum and chastity.Â The conference was hosted at Pius X High School, where they have an extremely active pro-life club. Here are some of the comments from the teens who attended.Â We hope this will inspire you to attend another conference run by GFL coming up in January – TeenSpeak 2009!
“I learned a lot being here. It changed my thinking on what abortion really is and it made me think of how I can help others to see what we see.” “I am glad I came. I think the pro-life message is important for today’s young people to support because we are the future and change will only occur if we are willing to stand up for what we believe.” “The conference was inspirational and motivational! It made me want to go out and make a difference!” “Very informative and motivating! I love babies!” “I thought it was really good. I didn’t know what to expect, but it was really well done, appealing, and getting to the point.” “You guys are awesome and I’m glad there’s people who are trying to help every teen out in the fight for life.” “I thought it was very informative and inspired me to get more involved.” “Very good! Thank you so much! I’ve been very pro-life my entire life but I learned so much about WHY I am today.” “It was really informative, a great way to meet kids with the same values.” “I learned a lot and enjoyed seeing my peers believe in the same things.” “I thought it was good to learn how I can defend what I believe. It also really stuck out to me when the video said we need to educate ourselves — showed me how much more responsible I need to become.” “I loved it soooo much and am going to argue with my pro-choice teacher about everything.”
