Democrats For Life of America announced today that former Ohio Congressman Tony Hall would receive the 2007 Hall of Fame Award at their annual conference and dinner on the evening of June 20th.
"Ambassador Tony Hall is a dedicated public servant who has earned our deepest respect. As a Congressman, Ambassador, and individual, he is an inspiration to those of us who believe in protecting life at all stages. His advocacy for the unborn, the hungry, victims of human rights abuses and other life issues is heroic. That's why we're honored to be giving this award to him next week," said Kristen Day, Executive Director of Democrats For Life of America.
The conference will include several speakers to talk about critically important topics including an update on the status of the Pregnant Woman Support Act, information sessions on restricting and regulating abortion, and discussions on poverty, the death penalty, human trafficking, and civil and international conflicts.
Democrats For Life of America was founded in 1999 to mobilize Democrats at the local, state, and national levels.
Their primary mission has been to help pro- life Democrats, support pro-life elected officials, promote a pro-life plank in the Democratic Party platform and achieve legislation that fosters respect for human life. Democrats For Life of America currently has 41 state chapters with plans to expand the group into additional states by the end of the year.
In addition to the grassroots support across America, the group has several Members of Congress who are actively promoting the group's mission.
