I managed to get to the Mother of Life Conference today. They had a number of speakers, among them Alveda King, niece of slain civil-rights leader Martin Luther King. I didn't attend any of the lectures, partly because the seats looked uncomfortable, partly because I didn't think I could stay for the whole day anyway. I did see a number of booths from various pro-life groups there; it was like a giant version of the Del Mar fair booths. Life Perspectives, the people I do the Life walk with, was there. I'd gotten a sponsor pledge form the day before and was able to secure a few pledges from people I know there. One of the people I ran into was Tim Houze, someone I knew from San Diego State's pro-life group more than thirty years ago. He updated me on how others in the group were doing, and I got him to sign the pledge. His wife had rheumatoid arthritis more than thirty years ago, and over the years has gotten worse, now apparently in a wheelchair.
