WND founder Joseph Farah will join pro-life bloggers and online social-media activists as they gather in the nation’s capital to celebrate life and lay out strategies to advance the pro-life message this Friday.
The Family Research Council will host Blogs for Life Jan. 22, a conference that also features pro-life leaders and speakers including Family Research Council President Tony Perkins, Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser, Americans United for Life President Charmaine Yoest, and WND commentators Jill Stanek and Molotov Mitchell – all speaking with bloggers live from Family Research Council’s headquarters in Washington, D.C.
“We’d like to hear from Joseph Farah, as somebody who has created an online presence with a strong pro-life stance, on how online journalism has affected the pro-life movement,” said Jared Bridges, director of online communications for the Family Research Council.
The Blogs for Life event will begin at 8:30 a.m., just before the 37th annual March for Life, during which hundreds of thousands of pro-life Americans march for life and demand reversal of the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision on abortion.
Bridges said the event is open to the public and attendees will have an opportunity to hear speakers, network, talk about the online movement, learn about new technologies and share strategies to promote respect for life.
Those who are unable to attend may watch the conference via live webcast on the Family Research Council website. A film of the event will be archived online.
“America is clearly in the process of rebuilding a consensus about freedom,” Farah said. “We saw that Tuesday in Massachusetts. We have seen that in the tea-party movement sweeping the country. Now it’s time to rebuild a consensus about the sanctity of life. Without that, freedom means nothing.”
