New Congress Forces New Tactics by Pro-Lifers

The National Pro-Life Religious Council, along with representatives from many other pro-life groups, will hold a news conference Monday morning, January 22, 8:15 AM in the US Senate Dirksen Building, room G-50 to discuss new legislative tactics in the face of a pro-choice leadership in the 110th Congress.

The news conference will immediately precede the 13th annual National Memorial for the Pre-born and their Mothers and Fathers, the only fully dressed pro-life worship service held in the US Capitol complex.

“It’s a new day in Washington and that means a new challenge for pro-lifers,” said Rev. Rob Schenck (pronounced SHANK), an Evangelical minister and one of the founders of the Memorial event. “Christ said we must be as clever as serpents and harmless as doves. With pro-choice leaders in the House and Senate, we may need to be downright snaky.”

The National Memorial for the Pre-born and their Mothers and Fathers last year drew an overflow crowd. The sponsoring organizations have put out a call this year emphasizing that with staunchly pro-abortion Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and US Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a strong showing is vital at both the annual Memorial and annual March for Life that follows.

Several members of Congress are expected to address the gathering, including Kansas senator Sam Brownback.
