News release from the Indiana Right to Life and Allen County Right to Life:
Indiana Right to Life & Allen County Right to Life to Host “Pro-life Boot Camp” June 22 & 23, 2012
June Kick off event is open to the public
Indiana Right to Life and Allen County Right to Life are pleased to announce the eighth annual Pro-Life Boot Camp for students on Friday and Saturday, June 22 & 23, 2012 on the campus of the University of St. Francis. The camp is designed to equip and engage high school and college students with the critical tools necessary to defend life in a secular marketplace of ideas. This year three levels of training will be available to students: Pro-life 101 lays the crucial foundation for the pro-life position and equips students to articulate the case for life in a winsome manner; Pro-life 201 will build on the basics and prepare returning students to respond to abortion/choice arguments; and Pro-life 301 will equip advanced students to successfully argue for life in speeches, writings and formal debates. The students will also have a variety of workshops from which to choose to help them fine tune their skills and develop an action plan.
The camp kick-off event is open to the public of all ages. This evening of pro-life training is on Friday, June 22 at 7 p.m. at the University of St. Francis North Auditorium at 2702 Spring Street. Featured speakers will be Kristen Hawkins, Executive Director of National Students for Life and Scott Klusendorf, expert in bioethics and apologetics and founder of Life Training Institute.
“We are delighted to welcome two of the best pro-life speakers in the nation to Fort Wayne to engage and equip the pro-life community,” said Cathie Humbarger, Allen County Right to Life Executive Director. “It’s not often that we have the opportunity – or take the time – to receive training of this kind. Adults are invited to take advantage of this great opportunity on Friday evening to join the students to bolster their pro-life convictions and communication skills. We are expecting a record student attendance this year.”
No tickets are necessary to attend the Pro-Life Boot Camp Kickoff Event on Friday evening. To register for the Student Boot Camp visitor call the Allen County Right to Life Office at 260-471-1849.
About Allen County Right to Life
The members of Allen County Right to Life are dedicated to organizing, educating and representing pro-life issues in Allen County. As the largest pro-life advocacy group in Northern Indiana, we are united to affirm that abortion, infanticide, and euthanasia are negative, violent and primitive responses to complex social problems that demand genuine compassion and rational, responsible thinking. Furthermore, we denounce fetal stem-cell research and human cloning because they involve the willful destruction of human life. We reject the notion that society may destroy innocent life to solve any problem. .
