Youth prepare to promote pro-life movement

Rock for Life

Rock for Life, a youth division of the American Life League, is taking an active role in pro-life activities in Washington as the annual March for Life draws near.
The youth division will be educating students on pro-life issues, and spokesman Jeff McClain says they will also be training youth to take a more active role.
"We're going to have a prayer and outreach time outside of Planned Parenthood," he explains. "We're also going to be taking part in the annual march, and we're also going to be doing another prayer and outreach time at the Planned Parenthood on Saturday."
Rock for Life will be joining other pro-life groups including "people like Silent No More and some other organizations," reports McClain. "So we're going to be out in front of the Supreme Court; we're going to be out in front of the Capitol, the White House, and Planned Parenthood," he adds.
During education sessions, young people will be taught how they can promote the pro-life movement and the Personhood Amendment movement in their own communities. McClain hopes to engage youth in a fashion in which they will be catapulted into leadership roles in the future pro-life movement.
