WASHINGTON D.C., Jan. 18, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ — The international pro-life ministry, CEC For Life, will be changing the name of their annual youth rally. What was formerly referred to as the “CEC For Life Youth Rally” has finally been given an official name: The All Life Is Sacred Rally, sponsored by CEC For Life.
“’All Life is Sacred’ has become the banner statement for this ministry,” said Director Fr. Terry Gensemer. “We want our event in Washington to reflect that truth. We also want everyone, no matter what their religious background, to feel welcomed to this event.”
CEC For Life is looking forward to another great event that will compliment the many other significant events going on during the March for Life.
There has also been a last minute change regarding the guest speaker for this year.
In the past, CEC For Life has brought in the most prominent and effective pro-life leaders in the movement like Fr. Frank Pavone, Star Parker, Brandi Swindell, Bryan Kemper, Georgette Forney of Silent No More, and their denomination’s very own Patriarch — Bishop Craig Bates — to speak at both the Rally on the evening of the March and the prayer vigil in front of the Supreme Court on the day of the March.
They have heard from speakers in the global medical community as well, like Dr. Sean O’Domhnaill and Dr. John Bruchalski, and have invited Irish pro-life leaders like Eoghan De Faoite of Youth Defence and Bernie Smyth of Precious Life Northern Ireland. CEC For Life constantly strives to bring in solid speakers who are passionate about pro-life and have a relevant message for young and old alike.
This year, Noelle Moll of Life 4 All Ministries in Kansas City was scheduled to be the speaker. However, due to unforeseen circumstances, Noelle had to cancel her trip to DC as well as her speaking engagement for the All Life is Sacred Rally.
On January 22nd, at 7pm in the Discovery Ballroom of Holiday Inn Capitol, CEC For Life will welcome Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue, as this year’s guest speaker.
Troy has actively worked on behalf of the preborn for over twenty years. His work is responsible for the closure of dozens of abortion clinics around the nation, and he continues as an innovator of new tactics that have helped close abortion clinics and garner criminal prosecutions for abortionists from coast to coast.
In 2006, Troy bought and closed Central Women’s Services, an abortion clinic in Wichita, Kansas, that has been renovated and now serves as Operation Rescue’s national headquarters and a memorial to the preborn. His groundbreaking work has been featured in Rolling Stone Magazine, the Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, the Chicago Tribune, and CNN.
CEC For Life is extremely excited to hear Troy Newman share his methods and wisdom with the generation who can and will make abortion unthinkable.
We are looking forward to seeing each and everyone of you at the March For Life this weekend! Be sure to check out our Official Schedule of CEC For Life events for the whole weekend on Facebook. RSVP and invite your friends!
