ProLifeCon is right around the corner on January 24. I hope you will be able to join us at ProLifeCon and hear from some amazing speakers. Not to mention that this event will allow you to meet other pro-life internet activists throughout the country as well.
Jill Stanek, who runs JillStanek.com, is one of our featured speakers and emcee at ProLifeCon. I’m excited to see and hear Jill speak again, as she is enthusiastic about pro-life causes. Jill is also a 2008 recipient of a Life Prizes award.
Jill served as a registered nurse in the Labor and Delivery Department at Christ Hospital in Illinois, and it was her commitment to her faith that led her to risk her job, reputation, and friendships to stop the practices of abortion. While as a nurse at Christ Hospital, Jill discovered that abortions were being committed at the hospital and babies were being aborted alive to die without medical care. After the hospital refused to stop the practice of abortion, Jill exposed the hospital’s practices and became a national figure to protect the unborn. Since then, Jill has testified before the Judiciary Constitution Subcommittee of the U.S. House of Representatives.
