Georgetown Students Organize Large Pro-Life Conference

Robert George, the McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence at Princeton University, will be headlining this year’s Cardinal O’Connor Conference on Life, the nation’s largest student-run pro-life conference, which annually takes place on the campus of Georgetown University.

George, the author of Embryo: A Defense of Human Life, has been one of the leading Catholic voices in academia for a culture of life.

The conference brings students, faculty and clergy together to discuss the importance of life.The 15th Conference will be held on Monday, January 20th, 2014, the Monday before the March for Life.

The conference is organized and sponsored by Georgetown University Right to Life, University Faculty for Life, Georgetown University’s Knights of Columbus, and The Catholic Daughters of the Americas.

Other prominentspeakers at the conference include Christopher Tollefsen, professor of philosophy at USC; Hadley Arkes, the Edward N. Ney Professor of Jurisprudence and American Institutions at Amherst College; Charmaine Yoest, president and CEO of Americans United for Life; and Thomas Farr, director of the Religious Freedom Project at Georgetown.

There will also be several breakout sessions with other notable pro-life leaders.

The Principal Celebrant of the Mass for Life will be Bishop Michael Barber, SJ, of Oakland.

The Conference was first held in 2000 and later named in honor of His Eminence John Cardinal O’Connor, the late Archbishop of New York and a Georgetown University alumnus. Cardinal O’Connor was famously a champion of the unborn, and this conference which bears his name seeks to continue his mission of defending the sacredness of all human life.
