As Americans, we are blessed with many freedoms and rights. One such right is that of free speech. However, many are denied the most fundamental antecedent right — life — and never get the opportunity to mutter their first syllable. This Thursday, Family Foundation President Victoria Cobb will use the former to inform about the latter at The Beacon Hill Society’s Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness — Speaking for the Voiceless conference. She will share how people can help in the fight for the rights of the unborn. She will be joined by Alan Carrillo of the International Justice Mission and Sara Pomeroy of the Richmond Justice Initiative, who will speak on the plight of human trafficking. Register online by today at The Beacon Hill Society for a discounted price ($5.00 per person or $15.00 per family) or pay at the door ($8.00 and $20.00, respectively). Speaking for the Voiceless is Thursday, July 28, beginning at 7:00 p.m. at First Baptist Church in Ashland, on 800 Thompson Street, about 20 minutes north of Richmond on Interstate 95.

Before speech, life!
