ARTL’s Rohrbough: Pro-lifer of the Year
Jill Stanek Poll Selects Columbine Dad Brian Rohrbough
Colorado Right To Life congratulates our former president, Brian Rohrbough, who is now the president of the newly-formed national pro-life organization, American Right to Life, for winning the Stanek Pro-Lifer of the Year poll.
Jill Stanek, herself one of the “30 most prominent pro-life leaders of the past 30 years,” according to World Magazine, wrote on her popular JillStanek.com blog:
Congratulations to Brian Rohrbough for being named the Stanek blog's 2007 Pro-lifer of the Year by our poll. Brian received over 41% of the vote [out of a field of nine nominees], which he got from all over the country - not just from supporters in his home state of Colorado. … Brian's arrival on the public pro-life scene was launched tragically by the killing of his son Dan during the Columbine massacre on April 20, 1999. Since then, Brian has used his publicity in large part to decry abortion, as evidenced by the words he chose for his son's plaque at the Columbine High School memorial, dedicated this past September.
To avoid influencing the holiday poll, held between Christmas and New Years, CRTL did not link to Stanek’s website from ColoradoRightToLife.org, nor did they inform their members of the voting.
Mr. Rohrbough has gained national recognition opposing the failed strategy of the pro-life industry, which is the regulation of child killing, and for promoting the valid alternative, the promotion of the God-given right to life in personhood efforts. More information about Mr. Rohrbough is available on the “Who We Are” page of AmericanRightToLife.org. “We thank Jill Stanek for keeping the pro-life community updated about the ongoing fight to end ‘legalized’ child killing,” said current CRTL president Joe Riccobono, “and we thank ARTL president Brian Rohrbough for providing a strategy for victory!”
