At the National Right to Life Convention, you will hear from speakers who have experience in the movement, messages that will impact, and stories of hope.
A few of our main speakers from last year's convention are listed below.
The Rev. Dr. Gregory P. Seltz served as the Speaker of The Lutheran Hour radio program, a position he held from 2011 to 2017.
It has been said of him that "His experience as a pastor, … a professor … and as Lutheran Hour speaker has given him extensive exposure to the cultural and social realities that shape American culture."
He is now the first Executive Director of the Lutheran Center for Religious Liberty in Washington, DC, and we are excited to have him open our National Right to Life Convention as our Prayer Breakfast speaker!

Patricia Sandoval is a pro-life speaker and author with an amazing story of hope for this generation. Her testimony is as powerful and raw as it gets, with her personal history of abortion and then being hired by Planned Parenthood. Her terror at what happens behind the scenes led her to drugs and homelessness. But her story does not end there, and is filled with hope!
Now, a speaker across the globe, an author, and an EWTN show host, National Right to Life is proud to have her speak at our 2021 Convention.

Tom Cotton graduated from Harvard Law School, and after a clerkship with the U.S. Court of Appeals and private law practice, Tom left the law because of the September 11th attacks. He served nearly five years on active duty in the United States Army as an Infantry Officer.
He is now serving as a United States Senator for Arkansas.
We are grateful to have him join us as our Closing Banquet speaker for the session "Making Respect for Life a Daily Occurrence."

Dr. Matthew Harrison is a board-certified family physician residing in North Carolina. He co-authored on a paper reviewing the mifepristone literature to establish an historic control of embryo survival of mifepristone abortion, if no treatment is offered. He is the director of the student health center at Belmont Abbey College and is a Medical Advisor to Priests for Life.
Dr. Harrison performed the first recorded mifepristone (RU- 486) reversal in 2006 and Kaylie is thriving.
The National Right to Life Convention is excited to have him speak at the convention for the first time at our Saturday afternoon General Session: "Counteracting the Abortion Pill One Life at a Time."

Wesley J. Smith left the full-time practice of law in 1985 to pursue a career in writing and public advocacy.
Smith has published hundreds of articles and opinion columns nationally and internationally on issues such as the importance of being human (human exceptionalism), assisted suicide, bioethics, the morality of human cloning, the dangers of the animal-rights movement, anti-humanism within radical environmentalist advocacy, legal ethics, medical ethics, and public affairs. The National Right to Life Convention once again welcomes his expertise to speak at our Saturday morning General Session:
"There's No Such Thing as 'Just a Little' Euthanasia."
