TORONTO, Dec 1 ( – The Save the Planet’s People First conference which concluded Saturday was rated by many veteran attendees as the best pro-life conference ever. A power-house of speakers riveted participants who were able to interact via video technology that allowed questioners to be heard and seen by the 500+ session participants. 

Soul-shaking messages were delivered by famed Catholic novelist Michael O’Brien, disabled activist Mark Pickup and Second Chance Ministries founder Angelina Steenstra. Experts and professionals in the fields of medicine, law, statistics, pharmacy, media and politics provided essential information for pro-life strategies for the coming new millenium while seasoned pro-life leaders like John Cavanaugh-O’Keefe and LDI’s Doug Scott charted the course. 

The conference charted a new course for pro-life in the new millenium with a strong emphasis on spirituality and re-evaluation of pro-life strategies and attitudes in light of today’s realities. There was great confidence after the conference that an exciting renewal of the pro-life movement was now underway. 

Youth were well represented with both national pro-life youth groups in attendance and entertainment included performances by singer and songwriter Michelle Iurman. 

Conference audio cassettes will be made available in the coming weeks from LifeSite.
