The pro-life news service has added as a political reporter and blogger a pro-life youth activist who is one of the most highly-regarded young adults in the pro-life movement.

Andrew Bair currently works at the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation alongside some of the top pro-life organizers in the Keystone State. Before that, he was the co-director of the National Right to Life Academy, which trains future pro-life leaders and activists extensively in pro-life apologetics.

Bair is considered one of the brightest pro-life minds in the under-30 millennial generation that has faced a lifetime of legalized abortion and seen classrooms full of their peers emptied by abortion on demand.

“Everywhere I go, with pro-life leaders and activists I talk to, Andrew Bair is frequently mentioned as someone whose understanding of the pro-life cause and today’s political environment is light years ahead of most people his age,” says editor Steven Ertelt. “His grasp of pro-life politics is on par with middle-aged adults who have weathered pro-life storms for decades.”

Bair is graduate of Franciscan University of Steubenville in Ohio, where he was a political science major.

“I am thrilled to be joining the team at,” he said about becoming a part of the pro-life news service and most popular pro-life web site on the Internet. “As an avid reader of LifeNews myself for years, it’s my honor to be contributing to this vital pro-life resource.”

“I’m very passionate about elections and the political side of the pro-life movement and I hope to share that passion with the LifeNews readers. As a 23-year-old working in the pro-life movement, I will be bringing a unique perspective, representing the ever-growing youthful contingent of the movement,” Bair continued.

Bair joins a select group of contributing bloggers that includes top-shelf pro-life leaders and activists such as Kristan Hawkins of Students for Life of America, bioethics experts Dr. David Prentice and Dr. Gerard Nadal, Americans United for Life attorney Bill Saunders, Maura Butler of the Susan B. Anthony List, and Luis Zaffirini of the National Right to Life Committee.

Ertelt concluded: “With a pro-life movement that is increasingly youth-oriented, as evidenced by the tens of thousands of young people at the March for Life in Washington this past week, Andrew gives not only a reporter and blogger with a pro-life heart and acute sense of the political climate, but the ability to reach the millennial generation. They are the future movers and shakers of the political and pro-life world. We’re excited by what Andrew brings to the table.”
