Pro-Life Candidates for Reno Mayor

on .

During every election cycle, Nevada Right to Life sends a candidate questionnaire to those seeking election to Nevada political offices.  This year, we expanded our coverage to the crowded field of candidates for Reno Mayor.

According to answers provided, the following candidate is strongly pro-life:

Ray Pezonella

And the following candidate leans pro-life:

Robert Avery

As we receive additional responses, we will be updating the results.


After the post above, Robert Avery wrote the following:

Thank you for the opportunity to clarify my position.  Please know that I am 100% Pro-Life on the stance of abortion, with the only exception being the risk of the mother’s life.  All human life is precious and valuable to me, from conception to natural death.  I however am not properly informed at this time as to the end of life care laws that exist in Oregon, or other similar states, which was the matter on the questionnaire that I was not able to provide a simple Yes or No.  I believe that any legislation regarding this topic needs to be carefully considered as to avoid unintended consequences and cannot be answered in a Yes/No format.  Furthermore, I do not believe in Doctor Assisted Suicide, and in my many years of volunteering for Senior Citizens I believe that we need to foster a greater capacity to care for them as those needs are not currently being properly met.

Camp Joshua 2014

on .

Nevada Right to Life/Pro-Life League of Nevada will sponsor the second annual Camp Joshua, Institute for Life & Leadership at the Lake Tahoe 4-H Camp, May 2-4, 2014. Last year 25 high school students formed the inaugural class. Feedback from the campers was extremely positive. The goal of this camp is to equip our high school students with the tools, on both a micro and macro level, to transform the toxic culture in which they live. The camp combined top notch speakers, educational tools and fun. Campers formed bonds with like-minded students. Almost every high school in Washoe County was represented. The money Pro-Life League of Nevada raises throughout the year funds this project and similar outreach and educational endeavors.

8th Annual Friends for Life Dinner

on .

Eighth Annual
Friends for Life Dinner
Downtown Reno Ballroom
February 21, 2014
5:30 - 10:00 pm

Make plans to join us for the 8th Annual Friends for Life Dinner and Auction, Friday, February 21, 2014, at Silver Legacy’s Downtown Reno Ballroom located on the northeast corner of 4th and Virginia in Reno (not inside the casino) for an evening with friends, old and new, in the pro-life movement.

This year’s recipient of the Heroes for Life award is Casa de Vida, Reno’s home for unwed, pregnant women. Over the last 32 years, Casa de Vida has helped hundreds of women and their babies make a better life for themselves. Long ago, Casa de Vida recognized that all efforts to advocate for life must be accompanied by real help to women facing unplanned pregnancies. Their work is done with love and hope and has left a lasting legacy.

Our keynote speaker, Chet McDoniel, was born with no arms and shortened legs. Chet refers to himself as a “Walking Case Study for Pro-Life.” Immediately after his birth, he was placed in a corner of the room and left to die. Fortunately, Chet survived. He says, “having lived a wonderful life including getting married, getting pregnant and seeing the birth of my baby girl, running two businesses, and most importantly, serving my God, I wonder what that same doctor would think now?” Chet’s positive message reminds us all that life, in all of its myriad forms, is beautiful.

Tables of eight are available for $600. Individual tickets are $75.

Come early to enjoy no-host cocktails and live entertainment from Colin Ross.
