WHEN: April 27 - May 3, 2010

WHERE: Anywhere a pro-lifer owns a camera or an iPhone.

WHO: NPLTW is organized by American Life League with the intent to increase awareness of the personhood of the child in the womb and the tragedy of abortion with a nationwide, positive, activism-oriented event.

WHY: "Primarily, we are concerned with getting people to think of the child as a person from the moment of his or her biological beginning," said project director Scott Carroll. "It is much harder to murder a person than it is to 'remove a lump of tissues,' and it is only when we finally get the nation thinking in those terms that we will be able to restore the right to life of our preborn brothers and sisters."

American Life League was cofounded in 1979 by Judie Brown. It is the largest grassroots Catholic pro-life organization in the United States and is committed to the protection of all innocent human beings from the moment of creation to natural death.
