.- Six pro-life groups are urging thousands of women to join them on Capitol Hill April 27 to tell the U.S. government that women believe all human life is precious and deserves protection under the law.

REAL Women’s Voices is the name of the one-day event is intended to protest legal access to abortion and to lobby the United States Senate on critical issues such as the confirmation of President George Bush's judicial nominees and a ban on human cloning. 

The speakers who have confirmed for the day include, Helen Alvare, attorney and Catholic University law professor; Rachel Campos-Duffy, talk show host and former star of MTV's the Real World: San Francisco; Dr. Alveda King, the niece of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.; Kara Klein, a pro-life singer who wrote a tribute song to Terri Schiavo; and Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.

Pro-Life Women, one of the organizers, is urging women to “be there in spirit” if they are unable to make it to Washington.
