TeenSpeak 2011: Pro-Life Knowledge Is Power

“This was amazing!” “Completely eye opening and inspiring.” “Super fun!” “Best ever!” These are just some of the comments that sum up the reaction of the 130 teens and adults who attended our TeenSpeak 2010 Conference last year. It’s comments like these that have me really looking forward to our TeenSpeak 2011 Conference next week on Saturday, January 29. On the evaluation forms for TeenSpeak 2010, we asked attendees what kind of speaker they would like to hear at a future conference. Many said they wanted to hear from a former abortion clinic employee. That’s why we’ve invited Linda Couri (pictured above, right) to speak at this year’s conference. Before undergoing a dramatic conversion, Linda worked for Planned Parenthood — America’s largest abortion chain. In her talk, entitled “The Choice Driven Life,” she will share her unique insider’s perspective and examine the values and motivations of those who call themselves “pro-choice” and explain how pro-life teens can best address this often hostile audience. We’ve also just added a talk by the pro-life medical student who “infiltrated” the Medical Students for Choice annual convention last month. This will be the first time he has spoken publicly about his experience there, so you won’t want to miss it! We are also sponsoring a pro-life essay contest along with the conference, which is open to students ages 14-18. First prize is a $1,000 scholarship! The deadline for entering the essay contest is Wednesday, January 26, and you must be present at TeenSpeak to win. There are more details on the essay contest here, and you can register to attend TeenSpeak here. See you there!
