This month, besides the Walk for Life in Adelaide on 11 February, pro-life supporters can look forward to the 2023 Gala for Life National Tour for Pregnancy Help Australia (PHA) in Sydney, Adelaide and Perth (on 18, 21 and 23 February respectively), and the Eva’s Place 10th Anniversary Life Fully Lived Gala Dinner on 25 February at the Cathedral Centre in Toowoomba.
The President of Heartbeat International, Jor-El Godsey, will be speaking at the gala dinners for Eva’s Place and PHA. Heartbeat International is a worldwide network of over 3,000 pregnancy centres.
Bridget Spinks, foundress of Gala for Life, says,
“I believe the most empowering thing a woman can do is birth her baby with courage and confidence. We need to do what we can to help vulnerable women in need be enabled to carry their pregnancy to term and start their family on their natural timeline.
We need to support pregnancy help centres on the frontlines as far as possible. This can be through awareness raising, telling our friends and if possible, perhaps becoming a monthly donor.
I believe it’s really important that we, the pro-life movement, have the opportunity to fund the pregnancy help centres who meet women in need on the frontline. That’s why I’m organising the Gala for Life National Tour.”
Another keynote speaker for the Gala for Life is human rights activist Dr Joanna Howe, who has been making waves by calling out the bias in the media around the promotion of abortion as the empowering choice. She is a Professor of Law at the University of Adelaide and holds a Doctorate of Philosophy in Law from the University of Oxford where she studied as a Rhodes Scholar.
For Joanna, abortion is the human rights challenge facing our generation. She is using social media to advocate for the innocent lives of the in-utero baby and the vulnerable women who need to know what abortion really does to their baby and their body.
