January Arizona Life Times

Dear Friend of Life,

As the New Year begins we certainly have many challenges ahead, but these challenges also come with unexpected promise. With the ascendancy of our new pro-life Secretary of State Jan Brewer to the position of Governor we now have an unprecedented opportunity to advance the cause of life in our state. We should remember this as we march and commemorate the tragedy of
Roe v Wade this January.

Saying Goodbye to Trent
This January marks the end of Trent Horn's nearly two-year service with Arizona Right to Life as our Programs Manager. This spring he will be moving to Wichita, Kansas to join Justice for All, a national pro-life organization whose mission is to train thousands to make abortion unthinkable for millions, one person at a time.

Trent was instrumental in developing new ideas and programs that have allowed us to grow and flourish as an organization. He created the documentary Abortion: Inside the Choice and co-authored it's accompanying Pro-life Leader Training Seminar that we use to support and educate local pro-life groups. He was also the author of the online and print editions of the Arizona Life Times as well as a valuable addition to countless other events and projects.

While we are sad to see him leave, we wish Trent well as he uses his gifts and talents to build up the pro-life movement across the nation. If you would like to wish him well in this exciting new endeavor you can send him an email at that we will forward to him.

Pro-life Outreach
Spanish Pro-life SignOn December 9th and 10th AZRTL Programs Manager Trent Horn and Life Educational Corp. Assistant Rosa Camou premiered our pro-life documentary Abortion: Inside the Choice to the adult catechesis services at St. Joan of Arc parish in Phoenix. For this group a special version of the documentary with Spanish-language subtitles was shown and Trent and Rosa delivered inspirational talks in both Spanish and English. St. Joan of Arc's Director of Evangelization and Catechesis Michael Garibaldi said, "The parents showed an interest in this that is far greater than anything we have ever done before. The documentary was amazing and Trent and Rosa did a great job. I highly recommend them for any church or youth group that wants to deepen their pro-life commitment."

If you would like a presentation at your church please contact Education Director Melanie Pritchard at

MARCH FOR LIFE: On January 22, 2009 over 200,000 pro-lifers are expected to gather and march on Washington in the annual March for Life. This event, which has been hosted since 1974, is designed to bring awareness to our nation's capitol that the pro-life movement is resolved and determined to end legalized abortion in America. The event is also a great place for pro-lifers to show solidarity with one another and plan future pro-life events and strategy. For more information visit the March for Life's Website.
