NORCO, Calif., (christiansunite.com) -- The Southern California Rally for Life will take place on Tuesday, June 30, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at New Beginnings Community Church at 1769 Western Avenue in Norco, California. With the theme of "Building a culture of life during the Obama presidency", the rally will feature keynote speaker Rev. Walter Hoye, II, along with prominent pro-life leaders Troy Newman of Operation Rescue and Rev. Patrick Mahoney of the Christian Defense Coalition.
Rev. Walter Hoye, II is the Founder and President of the Issues4Life Foundation. Rev. Hoye, a pro-life hero of our times, recently spent 19 days in jail for his peaceful pro-life work in Oakland, California. Pastor Hoye was arrested while standing on a sidewalk with a sign that read, "Jesus loves you and your baby, let us help you."
The Rally for Life is sponsored by the Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust, a national pro-life youth activism organization. Over 70 young people, ages 14 to 30, will be participating in the Rally for Life as part of the Survivors 12th annual ProLife Training Camp. The Rally for Life is co-sponsored by other local pro-life organizations, including Riverside 40 Days for Life and Corona Life Services. For more information: www.survivors.la/rally.asp.

"Since one third of our generation has been murdered, it's our duty as members of this generation to be the voice for those who didn't have one," says Amaris Gonzalez, age 17. "With this rally we are encouraging people to be the voice and to show that this generation is now standing for life and will continue to fight until this abortion holocaust has ended."
Presley Crowe, 17, states, "As a young woman living in a society where the brutal murder of unborn children is widely accepted, I want to encourage all men and women young and old to stand up for the right to life for all. This past year in a national survey, 51% of Americans polled said they were pro-life. We are not alone. We need to band together and continue to fight for the right to life for all human beings, especially the unborn. We are living in a society that is being led by the most pro-abortion president in history. Time is crucial -- we must stand up now on behalf of the unborn."
Adam Shelton, 17, states, "With the rising of the most pro-abortion president of all time, we need to show America that the tables have turned and the majority of people are pro-life rather than pro-choice."
