Changing Hearts and Saving Lives in Westmoreland County Since 2008
Westmoreland County Right to Life is an affiliate of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation. We held our first meeting in the fellowship hall at Holy Family Church in Latrobe in late 2007, established our Board of Directors, and were officially approved as a chapter by the Board of Directors of the PA Pro-Life Federation in early 2008.
We are also an affiliate of the National Right to Life Committee. The PA Pro-Life Federation is the National Right to Life Committee's affiliate in Pennsylvania, and we are the PA Pro-Life Federation's affiliate in Westmoreland County.
In 2008, we marched in the Latrobe 4th of July parade, set up pro-life educational booths at Saint Vincent College, the Hempfield Fall Festival, and other locations, established this website, had a guest spot on 101.5 WORD FM, and so much more!
In 2009, we went to Harrisburg to support pro-life issues and meet with our Congressmen and women, marched in the Latrobe 4th of July parade and participated in the Hempfield Community Days. We also attended the Southwest Choose Life Banquet and PA Pro-Life Conference. Dr. James Rossetti, MD, adult stem cell specialist at the West Penn Allegheny Health System, delivered the keynote address at the Southwest Choose Life Banquet to benefit the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation Education Fund on Saturday, September 19th, 2009 at the George Washington Hotel in downtown Washington, PA. Many other special guest speakers were on hand, including radio talk show host Rose from 'The War Room' with Quinn & Rose.
The 2009 Pennsylvania Pro-Life Conference held at the Scranton Hilton & Conference Center on October 24th, was a huge success. The Featured Speaker was former Attorney General of Kansas, Phill Kline. He is known as the prosecutor who took on Planned Parenthood. Others speakers included, Teresa Tomeo, author & syndicated Catholic talk show host; Bobby Schindler, Executive Director of the Terri Schindler Schiavo Foundation; Dr. David Prentice, Senior Fellow for Life Sciences at the Family Research Council; and finally, Attorney General Tom Corbett. The day was both Educational and Inspiring, touching on the most important issue of our day…Life.
In 2010, we attended the St. Brunos Festival, held a benefit at Chick-fil-a and once again march in the Latrobe 4th of July parade.
Addtionally, we attended the National Right to Life Committee’s national convention at the Hyatt Regency Hotel of the Pittsburgh International Airport in June of 2010.
Some of the speakers were:
