Come to The First National Women at Risk Convention
"ONE VOICE NOW"
"Women at Risk gives victims of abortion an opportunity, for the
first time, to come together to strengthen each other and express themselves
in the public spheres of legislation and the media. Their unique voices
can ensure that we have a more compassionate society, fairer laws, and
higher standards of medical care."
-- Margaret H. Hartshorn, President, Heartbeat International
"Women at Risk could easily revolutionize the whole abortion
debate. They will give those who have been hurt by abortion--women, men,
and their families--a strong and independent voice in the public sphere....I
can honestly say I have never been more excited..."
--David C. Reardon, Director, Elliot Institute
"All who care about women caught in the crisis of an abortion culture
must pray that the first conference of Women at Risk is successful. It's
time to turn the microphone of public debate over to those who have experienced
what abortion is really about."
-- Guy Condon, President, CareNet

All parents who have lost a daughter to "safe" abortion and want to ensure
that this loss never happens to anyone else.

create a more sensitive and compassionate society so that women will feel

rights in civil courts;
