LIFE...more than just a game!
Last Saturday, October 2nd, LSL hosted its 6th Annual "Southern Regional Pro-Life Conference." This year's theme, "Life...more than just a game!", was proven to be true as students learned about the dignity of human life and offenses against it, specifically the reality of the dangers of abortion.
The students received training on pro-life apologetics from Benjamin Clapper, Director of Louisiana Right to Life, and heard the powerful story of Ms. Jeanie McAndrew Holmes who shared her testimony of her life as a post-abortive woman.
- Many thanks to the LSL Officer Board, especially Jared Zeringue, Rosa Davis, Yiressy Izaguirre, Mary Tamparello, Dominique Monlezun, and Annette Denton!
