Some of the girls in the greater Lawrence area had approached us asking to have the Summer Academy in their area. The Academy is going swimmingly (couldn't resist). We have a lovely group of young women; two are from New Hampshire and one is an international student from Spain.
The first week Matt Hanafin spoke about fetal development and abortion in general. His presentation is always rich with material. Last week Cori Connor-Morse shared with the girls the heartbreak of having had an abortion. Eileen Guerin came from Pregnancy Care Center in Haverhill. Eileen is a volunteer counselor who told them what pregnancy resource centers have to offer women. She also shared her own story of her journey to pro-life. It was the most powerful pro-life evening I can remember.
Tomorrow night, Helen Cross will discuss Clarke Forsythe's book, Abuse of Discretion. The girls will know more about Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton than most of us.
Please mark your calendar. August 13th is the last day of the Academy. We will be showing October Baby. It is open to all and we'd love to have you!
In case you haven't seen: develops our governor served on the Board of the Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts in the '90's!
