Youth from Around the World to Gather in Los Angeles for International Pro-life Youth Conference


DOWNEY, Calif., Oct. 25, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- In just three weeks, Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust (US) and Ireland's Youth Defence -- yes, that's how they spell it over there -- will host the first ever International ProLife Youth Conference (IPYC) to take place in the United States.

Young people everywhere are invited on November 11-13 in Downey, CA to take on new levels of pro-life outreach and to meet with internationally recognized pro-life leaders. Speakers like Bernadette Smyth of Precious Life in Belfast, Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests for Life, Lila Rose from Live Action, Bryan Kemper from Stand True Ministries, Eoghan De Faoite from Youth Defence, Troy Newman from Operation Rescue and many, many others.

As the world gets smaller every day, the battle against abortion must become a united fight for life. This conference will network young people into a global movement for life. We are confident that the relationships forged here will have positive effects for years, maybe even decades, to come.

Knowledge concerning pro-life issues is another focus. From China's one child policy, and its resulting forced abortions, to India's hidden genocide of female babies, IPYC will tackle numerous evils of abortion while also showing the youth of the world how to access global tools and trends to successfully stand against those evils.

As the number one ideological exporter of abortion, America is a fitting place to launch this global movement for life. "Abortion is a human rights issue," states Kristina Garza, Director of Campus Outreach for Survivors. "We must come together as young people and throw off the culture of death the older generation embraced. This generation is pro-life."
