Dear Friend,

Every day, more than 3,000 children are killed through abortion and their bodies discarded as medical waste.   It’s time to honor their lives and give them the dignity that the tragedy of abortion denied them.
Join Right to Life of Northeast Ohio as we sponsor an interfaith memorial service on the fifth annual National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children,calling on pro-life Americans to honor the grave sites and memorials of our aborted brothers and sisters.
Please, can you spare just one hour and join is in a memorial service at 1PM to be held near the Memorial to the Unborn at Holy Cross Cemetery in Akron?

With the accompaniment of the Knights of Columbus Color Guard, memorial service participants to date include Pastor Al Davis (Bible Baptist Church, Richfield), Chris Long (President, Ohio Christian Alliance), Senator Frank Larose (Ohio Senate District 27), Ohio Lieutenant Governor Mary Taylor, Helena Carlson (President, University of Akron Students for Life) and keynote speaker Robin Swoboda.

Music performed by

The National Right to Life 2016 Pro-Life Essay Contest Deadline Approaching

By Jacki Ragan

essay55Each year, National Right to Life sponsors a Pro-Life Essay Contest for students in grades 7-12. Minnesota state Senator Michelle Fischbach oversees and directs the contest.

For 2016 the essay should address the question, “What can I do to build a pro-life generation?” All essays should be postmarked no later than Saturday, January 23, 2016.

This is an excellent way to educate young people to the true meaning of abortion and how many lives are lost each year. With more than 3,300 abortions a day, many of their peers are not in their class room today because of abortion. It can help each individual pro-life student learn and understand not only what is at stake in abortion but how they can help.

There are two separate competitions. There is a Senior Essay Contest for grades 10 – 12; and a Junior Essay Contest for grades 7 – 9.

Essays will be read and judged on originality, content, and accuracy. The announcement of winners will be as soon as possible, but judging time depends on the numbers of entries received.

What follows is a brief “how-to” so that you know how to submit your essay properly.

The essay should be double spaced with pages numbered, between 300 to 500 words in length. The font must be no smaller than 12 pt.

Use a cover sheet that includes: full name, full address, phone number, grade level, student date of birth, parents’ name, and word count. All sources used must be cited and please do not include any artwork, pictures, or plastic covers.

All essays must be mailed to Michelle Fischbach, 14722 Old Lake Road, Paynesville, MN 56362.

Again, essays must be postmarked no later than January 23, 2016.

First place winners will receive $200, Second place winners will receive $150, and Third place winners will receive $100. Prizes are awarded for both the Junior and Senior contests.

The two first-place essays will appear in the National Right to Life Committee Yearbook and in National Right to Life News Today.
