Pro-life Group to Give Awards
Washington, DC – The National Pro-Life Religious Council (NPRC)
announced today the recipients of its annual Pro-life
Recognition Awards. These awards are bestowed each year upon
leaders who have made a significant difference in the effort to
restore protection to unborn children. This year’s recipients
are Miss Nellie Gray, President of the March for Life, and Rev.
Johnny Hunter, National Director of LEARN (Life Education and
Rev. Frank Pavone, President of the NPRC, stated, "The March
for Life has inspired countless people to commit themselves to
the pro-life movement all year long, and Nellie Gray deserves a
great deal of credit for organizing this event each year since
1974. Rev. Johnny Hunter has made a significant impact in
mobilizing the African-American community to stand up for the
equal rights of the unborn, and the momentum within that
community for this cause is stronger than ever."
The pro-life awards will be presented at the annual National
Memorial for the Preborn, to be held in the United States Senate
on the morning of January 22, the anniversary of Roe v. Wade.
