The first-ever International ProLife Youth Conference is heading to Los Angeles, California this November as pro-life group from around the world are making plans to attend and show that the future global leaders support human rights for unborn children.

With a call to young people for a global pro-life movement, several organizations are banding together to promote the event, set to take place on November 11-13, 2011. The pro-life gathering is sponsored by Students for Life of America, Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust (US), and Ireland’s Youth Defence. The co-sponsor list is a who’s who of pro-life youth activist groups from both here in the United States and around the world.

Young people everywhere are invited to come and hear internationally recognized pro-life speakers — leaders like Bernadette Smyth of Precious Life in Belfast, Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests for Life, Lila Rose from Live Action, Kortney Gordon from Students for Life, Ide Nic Mahthuna from Youth Defence, and others.

“Abortion is a human rights issue,” states Kristina Garza, Director of Campus Outreach for Survivors. “We must come together as young people and throw off the culture of death the older generation embraced.  This generation is pro-life.”

Sarah Howe, told LifeNews.com in a statement more about the thinking behind the event.

“As the world gets smaller every day, the battle against abortion must become a united fight for life. This conference will network young people into a global movement for life. We are confident the relationships forged here will have positive effects for years, maybe even decades, to come,” she said.

“The education side will be equally valuable. From China’s one child policy, and its resulting forced abortions, to India’s hidden genocide of female babies, IPYC will tackle numerous evils of abortion while also showing the youth of the world how to stand against them. As the number one ideological exporter of abortion, America is a fitting place to launch this global movement for life,” she added.
