This past week I had an awesome time meeting up with my friend and fellow pro-lifer Mitch Lozada in the arts district of Downtown Las Vegas. We sat down for a bit to discuss the music festival happening this weekend called Life is Beautiful. Our conversation spanned quite a few diffrent topics, but the primary focus was asking and dissecting the question:
Does our society today really see life as beautiful? Does this pro-abortion culture even value human life?
Initially we go into why we became pro-life activists or involved in the movement at all, and I touch on my time in high school when I had to take legal action against the Clark County School District for violating my Constiutional rights of freedom of speech. This is an important part of how I evolved in activism because it taught me from the very beginning that my voice will always try to be silenced and that I have to know how to stand my ground against a world that doesn't want to hear the truth about abortion.
I also talk about my experience working with Students for Life of America in Australia in March of this year, where our group was verbally attacked by a radical feminist coalition on the University of Sydney Campus. I pointed out the fact that our opposition consistently tries to shut down dialogue and silence the pro-life movement. And I believe that's a direct reflection of their inability to back up their claims that life doesn't begin when science says it does: conception.
Additionally, I mentioned a positive experience I had with a pro-abortion individual during my time at the March for Life in January. We were surrounded by a bunch of counter-protestors chanting things like "Roe v. Wade is here to stay" and a lot about trusting women to make their own choices. In the video with Mitch, I talk about an experience where I was able to find common ground with someone of opposing view and as a result, we not only became friends, but he also said he changed his mind!
Mitch goes on to add that he's new to the whole pro-life activism world, and shouts-out Rebels for Life, which is our Students for Life chapter at the University of Las Vegas. It's always a great time to become an activist for life, and if you're unsure about where to even begin with making your voice heard, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or shoot me a DM on Instagram @lifedressorg! I would love to connect you with awesome pro-life people in your community.
Wrapping up the video, we touch on a few other topics including Unplanned and how abortion is presented in the media.
And then I briefly show one of the latest Life Dress design releases! The bold statement?
"When the world doubts, the woman defies."
