Mary Rose Terese Clapper

This Monday, August 15, LARTL welcomed a new member to its family with the birth of Mary Rose Terese Clapper.  Congratulations to our Executive Director, Benjamin Clapper, his wife Kristen, and their daughter Kate on the newest addition to their family!  Kristen and Mary Rose are doing very well! 


Even with that celebration, we have had plenty going on!  Here is a little Louisiana pro-life gumbo...

In just a couple weeks, candidates for all state-wide offices will be qualifying to run for elections to be held in October and November.  More on that in the coming Kristen, Ben, and Mary Roseweeks, but for now, be sure you and everyone you know are registered to vote.  Visit this link to register to vote, and contact us to learn how to get larger numbers of people registered to vote.  You must be registered by September 21 to be eligible to vote in the October 19th primary!


40 Days for Life in Louisiana!

This September, join pro-lifers around the world in defending life!  The 40 Days for Life campaign this fall is the LARGEST TO DATE and will be held in 291 locations including 48 US states, 7 Canadian provinces, Australia, England, Spain, Germany and Argentina.  Wow! 


For the first time, we are helping to launch THREE Louisiana campaigns in Baton Rouge, Shreveport, and New Orleans. Pro-lifers from all around the state will have the opportunity to unite in prayer, fasting, and vigil at Louisiana abortion facilities.  This 40 Days for Life promises to be powerful and life-saving!  On Thursday August 25th, be sure to attend either the New Orleans or Baton Rouge Cast the Vision gatherings.
