Last Chance to Attend IRLC Fundraiser Featuring Former Planned Parenthood Worker Turned Pro-Life Activist

In case you’ve been procrastinating, there is still a little time left to reserve your seat for the Iowa Right to Life Committee’s Annual Spring Fling fundraising dinner, which will take place Saturday, April 28 at the Iowa Event Center.

This year’s event features keynote speaker Catherine Adair.   Ms. Adair worked for Planned Parenthood of Massachusetts at the largest abortion clinic in New England.  There she witnessed thousands of abortions, doing everything from making appointments to assisting in the procedure rooms.  After seeing the aftermath of a second-trimester abortion, she was forever changed.  Her personal experience with abortion at age 19 and time working at Planned Parenthood changed her from a prochoice feminist to a prolife activist.  Her story is one of hope and of healing, and she credits God, with His infinite mercy and forgiveness, for giving her the strength to share her story.

If you’d like to attend this event, you’ll need to RSVP as soon as possible.  See details below.
