Regional Wichita, Kansas Conference to Feature National Personhood Leaders

WICHITA, Kansas, July 14 /Christian Newswire/ -- Personhood Kansas, in conjunction with Right to Life of Kansas, is excited to announce plans for the Midwest Personhood Pro-life Conference to be held on Saturday, September 11th, 2010, at Riverlawn Christian Church in Wichita, Kansas.

The event will provide state personhood leaders across the country an opportunity to network with one another and determine the most effective strategies for pursuing personhood measures in their various states.

"We're intent on protecting every child by love and by law in the state of Kansas, and we want to share that enthusiasm with others in the region," says Keith Ashley of Personhood Kansas. "This is an invitation to every pro-life advocate dedicated to ending abortion. Whether your group is pursuing personhood in your state, or this is new to you and you want to learn more, feel free to join us."

Panelists and speakers confirmed for the conference include; Rev. Walter Hoye, President of the California Civil Rights Foundation and Issues4Life Foundation, and a leader of the California Human Rights Amendment initiative; Rebecca Kiessling, International Pro-life Speaker, Attorney, and Adoptee who discovered her conception was the result of rape; Johanna Dasteel, Senior Legislative Liaison with the American Life League; Rev. Flip Benham, Director of Operation Save America; Gualberto Garcia Jones, Attorney and President of Personhood Colorado; and Keith Mason and Cal Zastrow, Co-Founders of Personhood USA.

"All of our guests will contribute something different to the discussion--experience with successful personhood initiatives, legal and legislative expertise, or an understanding of the moral imperative of working towards recognizing the dignity of all human persons," Ashley continues. "We are going to be covering a range of topics and answering your questions. Please consider attending this important event as we determine the best way forward."

This event is free to the public. A gift offering will be accepted. Catered meals will be provided. RSVP instructions, venue directions, schedule of events, and hotel options are available online at
