Hey, everybody, Secular Pro-Life president Kelsey Hazzard here. Twenty-nine years ago tomorrow, the U.S. government arbitrarily decided that I could no longer be legally dismembered!
Okay, so birthdays can be a little fraught for a pro-life activist. They shouldn’t matter as much as they do. Still, tomorrow is the anniversary of the day I first came face to face with the family members and friends who mean so much to me, and I think that’s worth celebrating.
If you’d like to celebrate with me, here are four things you can do that would make my (birth)day:
- Donate to a federally qualified health center (FQHC) that serves low-income women regardless of their ability to pay. These are the clinics that will benefit from a funding increase when Planned Parenthood is finally stripped of taxpayer money—but there’s no reason we can’t boost their budgets right here and now. Go to FundWomensHealth.com to support an FQHC near you.
- Donate to Secular Pro-Life. We’re a volunteer-run organization with no paid staff or physical office, so every penny you give goes to our programming.
- Register for an upcoming conference! We’ll be at the Consistent Life Network’s 30th anniversary conference the first weekend of August at Eastern University (near Philadelphia), and at the Life/Peace/Justice conference October 20-22 in Pittsburgh.
- Help Secular Pro-Life reach 20,000 likes on facebook by inviting a friend to our page. We’re just 742 away!
I am about to embark on a few weeks of heavy travel, so blog posts will be few and far between. But don’t worry—Secular Pro-Life’s wonderful co-admins will keep the facebook page updated with the latest pro-life news and commentary. (Thanks, ladies!)
