Dr. Janet E. Smith, Ph.D, will discuss how attacks on the culture of life go hand-in-hand with attacks on religious liberty, and why many in the United States seem to think that the right to life and (religious) liberty must be sacrificed to the pursuit of happiness.

In her lecture, Dr. Smith argues that only a commitment to the New Evangelization can show us the way to address the present and coming oppression of religious practice.
