Contact: Mary Catharine Maxian, Unite for Life, 713-876-2296
HOUSTON, Oct. 19 /Christian Newswire/ -- Houston pro-life organizations are coming together on October 23, 2010 to educate, inspire and pray in an event called Unite for Life -- Houston. Inviting all pro-life supporters from around the Houston area and beyond, this FREE event will kick off at the Catholic Charismatic Center with a morning full of inspiring messages from leading pro-life advocates, including international pro-life advocate Eduardo Verástegui, and then culminate with a prayerful march to the new Planned Parenthood.
Motivated by the recent construction of a new Planned Parenthood in Houston, the largest abortion facility in the Western Hemisphere, that practices abortions up to the 25th week of pregnancy and concerned by the ever-growing number of abortions nationally and especially in Houston, Unite for Life -- Houston commits to not only inspire pro-life believers but to educate them on how to take action in their communities. Local Houston pro-life organizations, like Houston Coalition for Life, Texas Right to Life, Silent No More Awareness Campaign and Catholic Organization for Life, will be attending the event to provide information and welcome new members.
President of Health Care Professionals for Life and Chairwoman of Unite for Life -- Houston 2010, Mary Catherine Maxian, MD, has learned through her work that there are many pro-lifers in the community that have an earnest desire to help the pro-life cause but didn't know where to start.
"Unite for Life - Houston is designed to not only be motivational, but action-oriented. Unite for Life - Houston allows people the opportunity to learn about the many different areas of the pro-life movement so that they can pick a niche that fits them. When we get all of the pro-lifers working together, praying together, voting together, and uniting our efforts with the will of God, the abortion industry will not stand a chance against us."
International pro-life speaker Eduardo Verástegui, also well-known for producing, directing and starring in the compelling pro-life film, Bella, will serve as the keynote speaker. His pioneering pro-life message created the Bella Hero project, a plan designed to equip pregnancy care centers around the world with copies of Bella for women discerning abortion.
