The Cardinal O’Connor Conference on Life is the nation’s largest student-run pro-life conference, hosted at Georgetown University, in Washington, D.C. Each year, the Cardinal O’Connor Conference on Life strives to promote intellectually rigorous discourse on the sanctity of human life as well as build a culture of life both within and beyond the Georgetown community. The conference will be held on January 19, 2019, the day after the March for Life, and will feature a keynote address by Timothy Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York. This year’s theme is “Pro-Life Priorities: Strategically Advancing a Culture of Life.” We will attempt to consider the strategies that shape how the pro-life movement currently operates and how it might do so more effectively in the future, while still remaining devoted to a genuine consistent ethic of life.
