National Pro-Life T-Shirt Week Kicks Off April 27

April 26, 2010 ( – The National Pro-Life T-Shirt Week (NPLTW) begins this Tuesday, along with a photo scavenger hunt contest in which contestants can enter to win a free iPod Touch.

NPTW and the “Yo! Where’s the Shirt?” Photo Scavenger Hunt are sponsored by the American Life League (ALL).

“Thousands of young people across the country will take to the streets and the schools a civil rights message for the 21st century: All human beings deserve human rights,” announced ALL in a press release Monday. ALL has stated that more contestants have registered for this year’s contest than in last year’s, in which 3,000 photos were submitted.

The scavenger hunt will offer participants the opportunity to win a free iPod Touch by photographing themselves in pro-life t-shirts performing over 150 various “tasks” including:

– Sidewalk chalking a pro-life message

– Holding a marble with two chopsticks

– Standing in front of the US Supreme Court

– Rocking an air guitar

“Primarily, we are concerned with getting people to think of the child as a person from the moment of his or her biological beginning,” said project director Scott Carroll. “It is much harder to murder a person than it is to ‘remove a lump of tissues,’ and it is only when we finally get the nation thinking in those terms that we will be able to restore the right to life of our preborn brothers and sisters.”

In addition, NPTW has launched a new iPhone App to help photo contest contestants take photos and complete tasks.
