    Leading pro-life apologist headed to Alaska next month

    AlaskaWatchman.com

    One of the nation’s top pro-life apologists is slated to speak in Wasilla next month.

    Scott Klusendorf is president of Life Training Institute, and author of “The Case for Life: Equipping Christians to Engage the Culture.” He is speaking at the Oct. 8 fall fundraiser for HeartReach Center, a pro-life clinic in Wasilla.

    Klusendorf, who has taught pro-life apologetics at the graduate level at Biola University and Trinity Law College, believes pro-life advocates should be equipped to make secular, non-religious arguments for why abortion is wrong. He has lectured at more than 80 colleges and universities, including Stanford, Berkley, John Hopkins and MIT. One of his mottos is: “Training others to save lives by persuasively communicating the pro-life message.”

    The HeartReach fundraiser is free and open to the public. Due to COVID concerns the in-person event will not include food this year. Instead, attendees will be seated auditorium style at Wasilla Bible Church in Wasilla (1651 W. Nicola Ave).

    The adults-only event runs from 7-9 p.m. It will include a presentation on the mission and vision of Heart Reach and their aim of protecting unborn human life.

    According to HeartReach’s website, the non-profit has assisted Alaskans since 1986, serving more than 2,400 women last year who came to the group for information and support. All services are confidential and free of charge.

    The outreach offers a wide array of services, including pregnancy testing, accurate information about abortion and its consequences, ultrasounds, parenting classes and support, abstinence education, mentoring programs for mothers and fathers, childbirth classes and pre-natal classes. The group also provides referrals for churches, housing, legal and medical assistance.

    It runs a “baby store” with clothes, diapers and other items for parents and young babies. For those who have undergone an abortion, the group offers support groups.
    HeartReach’s website states that it is committed to serving women from all backgrounds who will receive “honest and open answers.”

    Client pregnancy tests are done in accordance with all applicable laws and all clients receive accurate information about pregnancy, fetal development, lifestyle issues and related concerns, the group states.

    The annual banquet provides a significant portion of HeartReach’s annual operating budget, while offering the organization a chance to share stories, triumphs and challenges that lie ahead.
    Admission to the event is free thanks to underwriting from local businesses and private community supporters. However, the primary purpose of the gathering is fund-raising for the pro-life outreach.

    “This time together encourages all of us, allows our friends to catch up on what God has been doing at and through HeartReach Center, and provides a platform by which to raise much-needed funds that go toward the ministry of saving lives – born and unborn,” HeartReach Executive Director Joyce Moropoulos said of the event.

    ​The fundraiser includes a full program schedule that includes ministry updates, special music, client stories and door-prize drawings.
