Hosted by Precious Life and Youth Defence
On Saturday, 22nd September 2012, Viva la Vida will hold a pro-life Bootcamp! Scott Klusendorf, president of the Life Training Institute, famous for equipping pro-lifers to effectively and persuasively communicate the pro-life message, will deliver an inspiring day of training and pro-life apologetics.
The day will be jam-packed with fantastic speakers, who will give interactive presentations and workshops to train young people in different aspects of pro-life activism, from side-walk counselling to street activism. This bootcamp is not to be missed: it will update you with the current situation in Ireland, both north and south, and help you to articulate the prolife side in any conversation or debate!
The push to legalise abortion in Ireland is stronger than ever, especially with the ‘Expert Group’ to report back in the next few weeks. We will also be devising and discussing plans for the crucial weeks ahead, so make sure you get a chance to be a part of history and contribute to the greatest battle of our time.
See you all there!
Scott Klusendorf travels throughout the United States and Canada training pro-life advocates to persuasively defend their views in the public square. He contends that the pro-life message can compete in the marketplace of ideas if properly understood and properly articulated.
Precious Life was founded in 1997 by Bernadette Smyth after viewing a picture of a baby killed by abortion. She was horrified to know that this could happen to a child and decided to do something about it. Since that day, Precious Life has worked tirelessly to keep abortion out of Northern Ireland, and through activism and campaigning have saved many babies and their mother’s from the horror of abortion. The emergence of Precious Life has rejuvenated the pro-life community in Northern Ireland into one of the most active and vibrant of movements.
Precious Life is the largest pro-life group in Northern Ireland, composed of people from all sections of the community who care deeply about unborn children and their mothers. They are non-denominational and non-party political. Since their formation, there has been a dramatic drop in the numbers of women travelling from Northern Ireland to England for abortion.
