WASHINGTON, Jan. 18 /Christian Newswire/ -- At a time when new Congressional leadership is pushing embryonic stem cell legislation and pro-abortion policies, hundreds of pro-life advocates will meet in the US Senate auditorium on the anniversary of Roe V Wade.
The National Memorial for the Pre-Born and their Mothers and Fathers is a clergy conference which will be held on Monday morning, January 22, 2007, from 8:45 to 10:30 AM in the Dirksen Auditorium of the US Senate. The event is co-sponsored by the National Pro-life Religious Council and the National Clergy Council and will serve as a kick off and incentive for hundreds of pro-lifers who will join the thousands of people participating in the annual March For Life.
The National Memorial for the Pre-Born and their Mothers and Fathers will include memorials, addresses and honors for those who have distinguished themselves by advocating for innocent victims of violence which include the victims of abortion, euthanasia and scientific experimentation that ends human life.
Senator Sam Brownback of Kansas and Senator Bob Casey from Pennsylvania have both been invited and are expected to address the assembly.
The National Memorial for the Pre-Born and their Mothers and Fathers is sponsored by the National Pro-Life Religious Council, the National Clergy Council, Faith and Action, Priests for Life and Catholics United for Life. Evangelical, Catholic, Protestant and even Jewish clergy have participated and have been inspiring witnesses to the sanctity of human life.
