GENERAL SESSION I:
 
Rescued From Abortion, A Life Worth Living
Sarah Zagorski

Sarah was rescued from abortion and often shares her story of survival, hope and healing. After spending seven and a half years in the Louisiana Foster Care system, she was adopted at age nine by a loving family dedicated to the prolife movement. She previously served as the Executive Director of Colorado Citizens for Life, the state affiliate of National Right to Life and was a staff writer for LifeNews.com. In 2012, Sarah graduated from Moody Bible Institute in Chicago with a bachelor’s degree in Communications and Biblical Studies. Prior to her service in Colorado, she was the Communications Director at Louisiana Right to Life where she worked to end abortion through education, legislation, activism and service.



GENERAL SESSION II:

 
Conceived in Rape, Worthy of Life?
Mary Rathke

As an adopted daughter whose birth mother had been raped, Mary shares even after a horrible encounter of rape one can choose life and joy. Mary’s story includes her birth mother’s experience, how her adopted mother’s tragic past was restored through adoption, and the tough decisions she faced when her oldest son was born at 1lb 8oz. Mary is a wife and mother of four children. She is a licensed minster and speaks monthly at the Good Samaritan Rescue Mission Chapel. She is a Director of the Board of Save the 1 and the President of HELPeople, INC. Mary has been a part of the International March for Life Leadership conference in Rome, Italy and is endorsed by Dr. James Dobson.
