WASHINGTON, D.C, July 13, 2015The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention and Focus on the Family will host a major pro-life conference called Evangelicals For Life in conjunction with the March for Life event.

The event will take place Jan. 21-22, 2016, in Washington, D.C. at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill. Evangelicals will gather from across the country to hear from leading speakers on this issue of a pro-life Christian ethic.

Speakers will encourage evangelicals to engage the culture on issues like abortion and end-of-life decisions, and the event will affirm the evangelical belief in the sanctity of life, that every life matters to God and is created in His image.

Scheduled speakers include:

“Russell Moore,”: President, ERLC

“Jim Daly,”: President, Focus on the Family

“Kelly Rosati,”: Vice President of Community Outreach, Focus on the Family

“David Platt,”: President, SBCs International Mission Board

“Samuel Rodriguez,”: President, National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference

“Charmaine Yoest,”: President & CEO, Americans United for Life

“Jeanne Mancini,”: President, March for Life Education and Defense Fund

“Roland Warren,”: CEO, Care Net

The gospel speaks to all of life, including the question of whether all human beings matter, said Moore. The Evangelicals for Life initiative is pursuing a pro-life, whole life agenda for a new day. Because we follow Jesus, we believe we should prioritize the vulnerable- the unborn, the elderly, the sick, the poor, the orphaned, the widowed-and we must do so with a clear gospel message of redemption through the sacrifice of Christ. The reborn should stand up for the unborn.
