FFL unveils new speaker videos on YouTube!
[October 1, 2008] Just imagine if Feminists for Life could reach students on every campus in the country with our pro-woman, pro-life message. Well, we can - starting this month.
Last fall FFL introduced you to our new speakers - each of them a Remarkable Pro-Life Woman.
This year, we introduce them to the world.
Thanks to the generous support of donors who initially sponsored the speakers' bureau, donors who later funded the filming of our speakers, volunteer support, and most important, the courageous speakers themselves, we are now prepared to release our first of seven FFL speaker videos, which will be unveiled one by one over the coming school year and posted on FFL's website and on YouTube.
You are invited to our "virtual premiere."
During October, as many observe Respect Life Month, I ask you to "face the choice".
Melissa survived a saline abortion and was placed in a neonatal unit, where her parents found her and adopted her. Today Melissa works in a social welfare agency in the Midwest.
This spring Melissa gave birth to a baby girl in the same hospital, the same maternity ward, where she had been aborted.
Like other Feminists for Life speakers, Melissa promotes pro-woman solutions especially on college campuses. "My biological mother was in college when she chose to abort me. I deserved better. My biological mother deserved better, too," Melissa says.
Future videos, which will be released throughout the school year, will include:
As each video is released, please forward this message to family, friends, co-workers, roommates, churches, organizations, any contacts you may have in the media or public office.
Please feel free to share the videos through Facebook or MySpace, or to embed the videos on your website or blog.
Learn more about all of our dynamic speakers and Pregnancy Resource ForumSM moderators, and book them for your next pro-woman, pro-life event.
Some stories will make you cheer. Others will make you cry. Each will make you think.
Because women deserve better,

P.S. As we release seven new videos of our dynamic speakers on YouTube, we must have the capacity to respond to student activists, the media, policymakers in government and education, and, most important, women in need. With all the media surrounding changes to both the Democratic and Republican party platforms and the nomination of FFL member Governor Sarah Palin as Senator John McCain's running mate, you can just imagine how our resources have been drained.
Feminists for Life can be there for them - if you are there for us. A new school year has begun. Thank you for making your tax-deductible gift in answer to my urgent request - and please, forward this news about our new video series on to others! Thank you.
