Secular Pro-Life president Kelsey Hazzard will speak at the 2021 Consistent Life Virtual Conference on Saturday, April 24. This year’s theme is “Creating a Culture of Life in a Divided Country.” The keynote speaker will be none other than State Senator Katrina Jackson (D-LA, pictured), who has been a thorn in the side of the abortion industry for many years.
This conference is hosted by Consistent Life Network. As the name implies, Consistent Life Network is a Consistent Life Ethic (CLE) organization. Much has been written about the CLE, but in a nutshell, it combines opposition to abortion with opposition to other institutionalized practices that kill human beings, such as capital punishment, war, and physician-assisted suicide.
Secular Pro-Life is singularly focused on abortion, which means we aren’t a CLE group. We do not ask our members to hold particular views on the death penalty, for example. Our co-leaders hold various positions on issues other than abortion, and that diversity of thought has not impeded our work. That said, SPL isn’t anti-CLE either; we frequently work alongside CLE organizations and individuals and are proud to be a Consistent Life Network member organization. We see tremendous value in advocates with different focus areas coming together to learn from one another. Furthermore, we recognize that because the injustice of abortion is deeply embedded in our culture and entangled with other social ills, the very meaning of “single issue” anti-abortion advocacy is up for debate.
We look forward to spending time with pro-life activists of all stripes on April 24. The conference is scheduled for 1:00 to 5:30 p.m. Eastern time. Tickets are pay-whatever-you-can between $0 and $50. Register today!
