This year's convention will be held in the beautiful Washington, D.C., area, the perfect place to bring the whole family (or local Teens for Life group) for a vacation combined with the pro-life educational opportunity of a lifetime. As always it will run parallel to the National Right to Life Convention (see pages 10, 14, and 15).
Fabulous speakers will headline sessions and workshops with topics geared specifically to teens ages 12 to 19. Teenagers are the future of the pro-life movement, but they also play a vital role in the fight for life today. We must give them the tools they need to carry the message of life into their schools, churches, and communities.
Teens and college students are truly on the front lines of the fight against abortion. They have lost between a quarter and a third of their generation and are the age group most vulnerable to abortion.
Pro-life young people need to be trained in order to stand in the gap to expose one's self for the protection of something; to make defense against any assailing danger; to take the place of a fallen defender or supporter.

Teens attending this year's convention will hear from elected officials, medical professionals, and pro-life experts in a variety of fields. Topics will range from scientific (fetal development, stem cells stem cells, unspecialized human or animal cells that can produce mature specialized body cells and at the same time replicate themselves. Embryonic stem cells are derived from a blastocyst (the blastula typical of placental mammals; see embryo), which is very young , and cloning) to practical (how to answer the hard questions on abortion, how to start a local Teens for Life group) and beyond.
Speakers will include Bobby Schindler and Suzanne Schindler Vitadamo, siblings siblings npl (formal) → frères et sœurs mpl (de mêmes parents) of the late Terri Schindler Schiavo. Their heartfelt heart·felt

This year's convention will also feature a Friday Night Field Trip to see the 4th of July fireworks from the mall between the Capitol and the Washington Monument. This is a sight every person should experience at least once in a lifetime, made all the more meaningful by the presence of new pro-life friends. Think about it: what could be better than celebrating liberty while surrounded by people who also cherish life?
If you know of pro-life teens who would like to learn more about the life issues while soaking up the culture and history of our nation's capital, please do everything you can to help them get to this year's convention. It may seem like an insurmountable task, but we promise it's not!
Some great fundraising ideas to help teens raise the money to attend include big rummage sales held in churches, pie sales, spaghetti dinners, and silent auctions. Another great way to raise money for teens to attend is to appeal to churches and other groups such as Knights of Columbus Knights of Columbus, American Roman Catholic society for men, founded (1882) at New Haven, Conn. (where its headquarters are still located), by Father Michael J. McGivney. for funding. Local right to life chapters are often in a position to help financially with such endeavors. Be creative, we know you can do it!
The bottom line is this: this year's NTL convention will be unparalleled in terms of content and culture. It would be a shame to miss it! In fact, we will be so bold as to say that every teen with a passion for the cause of life should be there! If you help get them to the convention, we will train them.
So please, think of a few teens from your church, chapter, or hometown home·town

You won't regret it! And, more importantly, your efforts WILL save lives!
