Thursday’s broadcast is the fourth of five Pro-Life Perspective programs that are filling listeners in about the not-to-be-missed upcoming National Right to Life’s 42nd national convention.  First held in 1971 at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota, the NRLC Convention is THE pro-life educational event of the year bringing together grassroots pro-life activists from across the country for learning and networking.

The convention begins June 28 and runs through June 30. (See for details about how to register and reserve rooms.)

Mrs. Tobias began with a quick reminder of some of the convention speakers.

Leading off Thursday morning is Steven Mosher, president of the Population Research Institute. His talk is titled, “7 billion people–Will everyone please relax. Debunking the overpopulation myth.”  Lila Rose, president of Live Action, is another Thursday general session speaker. Live Action has played an instrumental role in revealing the truth about Planned Parenthood.

Pro-Life author, radio and television personality Msgr. Jim Lisante is the Friday morning Prayer Breakfast speaking. Msgr. Lisante has titled his talk, “Life, liberty and other things you can’t mandate away.”

As Mrs. Tobias says, “Msgr. Lisante has been at past conventions and the people absolutely love him because not only is he inspirational, he is funny. And he is a great, great speaker.” (For more, see

Luis talked about some of the expenses associated with the three-day convention and ways to defray some of them. Registration is only $98 for an adult; $60 if you come for only one day.

There are two separately ticketed events for NRLC 2012, he said, the Friday morning Prayer Breakfast and the Saturday evening Banquet.

How to raise money? Luis suggested approaching your priest or pastor for possible support and perhaps a fundraiser might be possible. He also advised contacting local groups that might provide scholarships. And if you have a local right to life chapter, which most people do, Luis advised asking them if they have plans to send someone to the convention June 28-30 in Crystal City, Virginia, minutes from Washington, DC.
