Rebecca Kiessling will be the guest speaker at our Annual Gala on March 14, 2019 at the Hellenic Centre! She is an international pro-life lawyer who is very passionate about the sanctity of human life. Her website is www.rebeccakiessling.com
We are very excited to have her come share her story. We have in the office a brochure “Conceived in Rape” which is a synopsis of Rebecca’s story. Here is an excerpt from Rebecca’s website:
So most people’s position on abortion in cases of rape is based upon faulty premises:
1) the rape victim would want an abortion, 2) she’d be better off with an abortion, and 3)that child’s life just isn’t worth having to put her through the pregnancy. I hope that my story, and the other stories posted on this site, will be able to help dispel that last myth.
2018’s recipients of the “Youth for Life Award” were five young people from the same family! Joseph, Hannah, Matthew, Lydia and Deborah Balasch participate in all of LARTLA’s events. These inspiring young men and women have learned well from their parents, Judy and Henry as well as from their eldest brother, James. Team work is essential in any walk of life. God bless the Balasch family for their example and their generosity!
Here are some more highlights of the evening:
