Teens for Life, the multiple-award winning youth outreach known for producing the world's only quarterly pro-life publication for teens, is breaking new ground again with the launch of teensforlife.com, the world's first social networking site dedicated to raising up a new generation of pro-life teens. The site features an in-depth networking experience for teens that allows them to discuss core issues, exchange ideas, share multimedia, and just hang out with peers online.

"This is the first time that the pro-life movement has actively embraced the power of social networking for the purpose of raising up a new generation of leaders," says TeensforLife.com editor Mike Fichter. "Our goal is to educate, motivate, and activate a new generation to impact its culture by advancing positive and healthy alternatives to abortion."

TeensforLife.com offers visitors a wide range of ever-changing resources to supplement its social networking abilities, including information on crisis pregnancy assistance, how to avoid teen pregnancy by building healthy relationships, milestones in fetal development, and even book and music reviews. A special SpeakOut section gives teens the opportunity to give their feedback on the hottest topics of the day, while an RSS news feed keeps visitors up-to-date on what's happening in life issues around the world.

"The future of the pro-life movement is here, and we're giving it a voice of its own," says Fichter.

TeensforLife.com is currently seeking media partners who will help to publicize the new site by utilizing customized radio, television and print advertising as public service announcement materials. These materials are provided by Teens for Life at no cost. In addition, TeensforLife is seeking corporate, private and foundation partners to help fund computer kiosks that will allow teens at youth events to create their own profile on the TeensforLife.com social network while at the event.
