Life Chain participantsSeveral pro-life organizations were recently awarded for their work in changing the culture for life.

The National Prayer Luncheon for Life (NPLL), held in Dallas, honored three pro-life organizations. Event spokeswoman Karen Garnett tells One News Now the first-place award of $50,000 was handed to Students for Life.

"They have already trained 120,000 young people as pro-life advocates and indicated that this grant will help them train many, many more thousands of young people in pro-life advocacy and just to be able to counter the Planned Parenthood abortion culture message," Garnett reports.

Evidence shows that training is already producing results, even on campuses that are sold out to abortion.

"They have been able to measure an up to 31% minds changed rate through the training of their pro-life advocates, to be able to talk to those who support abortion who are swayed by their abortion position, to be able help change their minds and help change the culture," Garnett relays.

Abby Johnson's group, And Then There Were None, won the second prize of $20,000, and Sidewalk Advocates for Life won a grant for $15,000. This year a virtual audience watched the NPLL and voted on the candidates. Next year people will be able to nominate pro-life organizations in advance of the luncheon and then vote to determine winners.
