WASHINGTON, DC (January 23, 2013) -- Steven Mosher is speaking this Saturday, January 26, at Georgetown University's 14th Annual Cardinal O'Connor Conference for Life, "the nation's largest student-run pro-life Conference." As a part of the March for Life weekend events, Georgetown will bring together many of the top well-known leaders in the prolife movement.

Mosher's talk, entitled, "The Myth that Kills: Overpopulation as an Excuse for Genocide" takes a different angle at the issue of abortion. The mass killing of innocent unborn children is horrible enough. When it is promoted on the basis of a myth, that is even worse.

If people see their children as a burden on society and the environment, what motivation is there to keep them? This myth has infiltrated all aspects of our lives and must be exposed and debunked in order for children to be seen as not only good, but beneficial to society.

Other speakers at the conference will include Helen Alvaré, Lila Rose, Marjorie Dannenfelser, Tom Peters, and many more.

The conference is from 9:30am to 4:00pm. For more details visit the website here:
