"REAL Women's Voices" Lobbying Day.

Last year, I had the privilege of attending an exciting new lobbying event called REAL Women's Voices in Washington, D.C. This year the event will be held on Wednesday, April 26, and pro-life women will use this opportunity to speak with their congressional representatives about issues of concern to real women.

National Right to Life is one of several groups sponsoring this important event. These groups have combined their resources in order to present U.S. senators with the latest information on a number of pro-life issues and to let it be known that pro-abortion groups like the National Organization for Women and the Feminist Majority Foundation do not speak for all women.

The abortion lobby continues to peddle the myth that all women are so-called "pro-choice," even though poll after poll shows that Americansincluding womenare more pro-life than "pro-choice."

Now it's time to set the country straightand more importantly set the United States Senate straight: Abortion is harmful to women and children.

Your voice is needed on this historic day in Washington, D.C.

Your senators need to know that being Pro-Life and Pro-Woman is the same thing. Pro-life women from across the nation are being called to Washington, D.C., for a national pro-life women's lobbying day and are being urged to tell senators that they need to protect women's lives and the lives of unborn children.

Standard registration is for women who will be joining the sponsoring organizations in person on this historic day in Washington, D.C., to bring "REAL Women's Voices" to Capitol Hill. We will request a meeting with your senators when you register in advance. Registration is only $25.

Registration includes a training breakfast where attendees will learn about specifics of how to lobby and what to say about key issues like Embryonic Stem Cell Research, the Ban on Human Cloning, the Child Custody Protection Act, and judicial nominees. The training breakfast will be followed by actual meetings with U.S. senators. They day will conclude with a reception for the women lobbyists, leaders of the sponsoring groups, and invited pro-life members of Congress.

There is a student registration for all students with valid Student ID who will be joining us in person on this historic day. Student registration is $5 and includes the training breakfast, meetings with U.S. senators (for students who register in advance), and the reception.

Even if you are unable to physically attend the event in Washington, D.C., you can still participate by registering "In Spirit." "In Spirit" registration will give you the opportunity to have a letter presented to your U.S. senators about issues that are of grave concern to pro-life women.

If you can register "in spirit," there is a requested minimum donation of one dollar.

These issues are of vital importance to the pro-life movement. That they are being considered represents real change and real lives being protected.

For more information, you can find a link to the Real Women's Voice's information page by visiting our web site at www.nrlc.org. The link is on the left side of the page.

Get involved and let your voice be heard. Our senators need to hear that women across America are pro-life and willing to stand up and be heard about vital pro-life issues.
