What a great day! We had two amazing press conferences today, starting in gorgeous Baton Rouge, Louisiana. So many incredible pro-life women came out, including Bobbie Jones and Cynthia Labutka, both regional coordinators for Silent No More, Cindy Collins, the International Director of Operation Outcry and founder Lousiana Abortion Recovery Alliance (www.laabortionrecovery.com), Dorothy Wallis, the President & CEO Caring to Love Ministries, and April Altazan of the Louisiana Family Forum. Bystanders, supporters, and several police officers (who were very nice!) stood by as these women thanked Congressman Charlie Melancon, of Louisiana’s 3rd district, for his pro-life Stupak vote and expressed their disappointment in Senator Mary Landrieu for her votes against Life in health care reform. It was a gorgeous morning in Baton Rouge.
From Louisiana, it was on to Hattiesburg, Mississippi to meet up with Anne Kathyrn DeViney and Nancy Osborn, both local pro-life activists, Anne Hurt from Bethany Christian Services, Ame’ Karole, the president of William Carey Students for Life, and finally Meghan Fink, a junior at Sacred Heart Catholic School in Hattiesburg. The testimony of these women was so moving! We hope to see you again soon, ladies.
We’re in Montgomery, Alabama tonight and tomorrow will be at the State capital to meet with Alabama Secretary of State Beth Chapman and Cheryl Ciamarra, of Alabama Right to Life and Focus on Life radio.
Come out to join us!!!
