Millenials and Regent Law Alums Protecting Life

An increasing number of young people who strongly support pro-life causes has prompted the current president, Nancy Keenan, of the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) Pro-Choice America to resign at the end of 2012. Keenan cited NARAL's own data in telling The Washington Post that "new and younger leadership" is needed to reach Millennials — people between the ages of 18 and 34.

Janice Crouse, Ph.D., a senior fellow at the Beverly LaHaye Institute, noted that Keenan's resignation acknowledges that the pro abortion movement in American is losing the new generation of young women.

Meanwhile, Regent Law alums are making a difference for life on several fronts. Benjamin DuPré (1999) with Personhood Alabama (http://www.personhoodalabama.com/) recently appeared on CNN Newsroom to discuss the expose of unborn children to drugs, which in Alabama is a crime called "chemical endangerment of a minor." DuPré claimed that just as pregnant women do not drink alone, they don't abuse drugs alone either, arguing that States should give equal protection of the law to born and unborn children, Read the New York Times Magazine article on this topic, and see the CNN interview here: http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/crime/2012/05/08/nr-felon-moms-in-alabama.cnn.

Meanwhile, Regent Law alums Greg Terra and Stephen Casey of the Texas Center for Defense of Life are training other lawyers, with the assistance of the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF), through webinars on how to protect girls and women from coerced abortions.
