Hello and Happy Independence Day!
I am finally back home after spending the past week in Kentucky. The convention was my main draw up there, but I was also excited to connect/reconnect with some good friends.
At the convention I saw several familiar faces from Missouri Right to Life.
Also in Louisville, I reconnected with a friend of mine from college whom I hadn’t seen or talked to much in the last seven years! I failed to get a picture of the two of us, but I couldn’t help snapping a few of her youngest — the happiest, most chill baby I’ve ever seen in my life!
And in Lexington, after almost a year of calling in once a month for an interview on the Mike Allen Show, I finally was able to do a show live IN STUDIO! Mike even managed to talk my good friend Jason Hall, whom I have done a show with before, into coming on and saying a few words at the end of the show.
(Not pictured: the marvelous Jennifer Longworth, who pretty much runs things around there!)
I hope I didn’t come across too down on the convention. There were a lot of great talks and workshops provided there. I just get so frustrated by the lack of focus from the pro-life movement as a whole on some of these issues of human biotechnology.
Kudos to NRL for having Dr. David Prentice give an update. His workshop was very well attended. Speaking of which, stay tuned for my interview with Dr. Prentice in the next episode of BioTalk coming out next week!

Enjoy your holiday weekend, everyone. And, as you celebrate our freedom this Independence Day, take a moment or two to remember the millions of Americans whose freedom has been taken away in this country and pray for its restoration.

Human life must be respected and protected at all stages, from the moment of it’s inception.
