NAPLES, Fla., Jan. 19, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- Ave Maria School of Law (AMSL) announced support from national pro-life leaders today in advance of the first-ever "Law of Life Summit," being held at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, January 21, 2012 at 4:00 PM. The event will gather established individuals and organizations from the American pro-life movement together with pro-life law students for a visioning discussion focused on the coming final phase of the fight against the Roe v. Wade legalized abortion regime. More information can be found at: www.LawLife.org.
"Life Legal Defense Foundation shares the goal of seeing Roe overturned," said Dana Cody, President and Executive Director of the Life Legal Defense Foundation. "Despite Roe, we intend to keep defending the civil rights of pro-life advocates until their message is accepted by the culture and abortion, whether legal or not, is not an acceptable choice."
"The Law of Life Summit is an awesome synergistic mix of Pro-Life leadership, grass-roots action, and mentorship that will fuel our final push to overturn Roe," said Dr. Pat Castle, Co-Founder and Coach of the National LIFE Runners, who will also serve as MC for the Summit. "This inspired, mission-focused group realizes the infinite value of each life, which does not allow for any exceptions or truces. To overturn Roe, we need a unified group that is willing to take the Gospel of Life into the streets and halls of justice. This Summit is not a one-time event, but the first step down the homestretch to cross the finish line of abortion."
All members of the press are welcome to cover this event, please RSVP to John Knowles at the contact information to be issued media credentials.
