Joe & Ann Schiedler, along with Peter Breen, lead in closing songs, at the 2016 SpeakOut Illinois Conference. All in all, the event was a moving and educational experience for all who attended.
The Speakers were absolutely riveting – educating us on aspects of the Life issues, which even many of us pro-lifers might not have all been aware, as the issues of abortion and infanticide are far more reaching than is all that well known in the public square.
Speakers included Dr. Anthony Levatino, former abortionist,who experienced a profound change of heart, becoming an outspoken advocate for life.
Dr. Colleen Malloy, associate clinician at Northwestern University of Notre Dame and Northwestern University Medical School, who is board certified in neonatology and pediatrics and works as a neonatologist for Lurie Children’s Hospital.
Jeannie French, consultant to nonprofit organizations on senior health care and environmental issues and founder of the National Women’s Coalition for Life, as well as Professional Women’s Network. Jeannie’s personal experience of carrying a fatally impaired baby to term, led to her testimony before the U.S. Senate Judiciary and other state assemblies in support of a ban on partial birth abortion.
Mary Kellett, founder and director of Prenatal Partners for Life, a non-profit ministry that offers support, information and encouragement to families that receive an adverse diagnosis before or after the birth of their child.
Dan Proft, an entrepreneur, writer, former Republican candidate for governor and radio talk show host of “Chicago’s Morning Answer”, along with Amy Jacobson on WIND-AM 560.
TheTeenSpeak’s Conference Speaker was Josh Brahm who has worked in the pro-life movement since he was 18 years old. He is the founder of Equal Rights Institute, a national organization devoted to helping pro-life advocates communicate more persuasively with pro-choice people.
