2018 Evangelicals of Life event to focus on dignity of human life; Special offer available for interested media

Nov 10, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C, Nov. 10, 2017—The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission and Focus on the Family are partnering together for the third annual Evangelicals for Life conference, focusing on pro-life issues Jan. 18-20, 2018, in Washington, D.C.

Pro-life advocates recently focused their attention on the possible elimination of the adoption tax credit. The U.S. Senate moved to restore the adoption tax credit in their tax reform bill, Nov. 9, marking a victory for the pro-life movement.

ERLC President, Russell Moore, applauded the Senate’s decision by calling it a “good decision for vulnerable children and families.”

Moore and Cardinal Timothy Dolan published an op-ed in USA Today, Nov. 8, calling for the U.S. Congress to support the passage of the Conscience Protection Act that would clarify current federal law and provide for a ‘private right of action’ allowing people their day in court if their conscience rights have been violated.

A special offer for national media interested in attending the Evangelicals for Life conference is available by contacting Elizabeth Bristow at press@erlc.com.

EFL 2018 speakers will include:

Speakers will give keynote addresses, participate in panel discussions and breakout sessions on issues such as abortion, adoption, human trafficking, elderly care, the refugee crisis, euthanasia and disabilities. Attendees will also participate in the March for Life, the largest pro-life rally in the world on Jan. 19.  

A complete list of EFL speakers and bios can be found online.
