Contact: Day Gardner, President, National Black Pro-Life Union, 202-834-0844, email@example.com
Washington, Feb. 7 /Christian Newswire/ -- Thursday, February 8, 2007 the National Black Pro-Life Union will host the "Leaders For Life Luncheon." Those scheduled to speak are Senator Sam Brownback-R, Senator Ben Nelson-D, Congressman Chris Smith-R and Congressman Allen Mollohan-D. The Reverend Jesse Lee Peterson, President of BOND, will deliver the keynote address. The event will be held in the Mansfield Room of the United States Capitol Building.
"February is Black History Month, a time when we remember our struggles to obtain freedom and civil rights and to celebrate the many accomplishments and triumphs that we have achieved," said Day Gardner, President of the National Black Pro-Life Union. "It is also a time to focus on the many challenges that lie ahead such as the paramount challenge of ending abortion."
Since 1973, more than 44 million children have been killed by abortion; 15 million of them were black.
"You know, it really doesn't matter when it comes down to it what party you belong to--the focus must always be on our children who are killed and harvested by abortion and the women--mothers who suffer through the ordeal.," said Gardner.
The second event is a reception in cooperation with Congressman Chris Smith, Co-Chair of the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus scheduled in the evening from 6:15-8:15 pm in the "The Gold Room" of the Rayburn House Building. Several members of Congress will speak along with Dr. Alveda King.
"We don't have to kill our children to ensure that we have better lives," Gardner said. "The good news is that there are leaders who are Democrats and leaders who are Republicans who realize that fact."
