Opportunity to Make a Difference NOW

GLA Headline

Friends of Life,

Last week was a busy and exciting week for Georgia Life Alliance, and we now have an excellent opportunity to change our culture and promote the value of human life. Two GLA Certified Pro-Life candidates successfully make it to the runoff election in both the Georgia 6th Congressional District and the 32nd State Senate District.

Congratulations to Karen Handel candidate for Georgia’s 6th Congressional District and Kay Kirkpatrick candidate for the 32nd State Senate District.

OPPORTUNITY TO ACT NOW

I am a person who likes plans, budgets, lists, and goals; but I love an opportunity to make an immediate difference in a life.  Goals and plans are important, but only if they allow the flexibility to respond to opportunity.

My background is as a human trafficking prosecutor.  If a child is recovered or a victim identified, you set aside your plans, plan for a late night, and get to work; rejoicing because you have an opportunity to make a real and immediate difference in a life.

Right now, we have an rare opportunity to make a real difference in the culture’s view of the value of human life.  The eyes of the country are on the race in the 6th Congressional District between Jon Ossoff and Pro-Life Certified Karen Handel to replace Tom Price; and our voice, creating a dialogue that promotes life, has a rare opportunity to be amplified many times over across the country.

We must let people know that the right to life is paramount.  Without life, the other rights have no meaning.  I know many of you have been accused of being a single-issue voter, and felt like you had to deny that accusation because of the accusatory voice in which it was delivered.  We aren’t single issue people, but we understand, that without the right to life, the other rights are meaningless and other policies don’t matter.

As many of you know, my husband was killed in a random act of violence last summer.  He was foreign born, from Iran.  When he had life, visa policy, economic policy, and foreign policy were all deeply and personally important to him.  Once he was deprived of life, none of those things mattered to him at all.  

It is the same for the vulnerable unborn and the elderly.  Life is not the only thing that matters, but without it, nothing matters.  

We have an opportunity to explain why it is so important to protect human life and to promote the right to life of all from conception to natural death.  Our message, delivered during this runoff, can spread from this district, through the state, to the entire country, as the eyes of the country are focused on this election.

If you are in the district you can vote for the pro-life candidate, but for the majority of you who cannot vote in the 6th district, you can still join with us to promote life. This is not something Georgia Life Alliance Committee can do without your help.

Please join with us, to take advantage of this important opportunity.

  1. PRAY for wisdom as we continue to actively develop our communication strategy regarding this election.

  2. SHARE our videos, posts, and tweets.

  3. GIVE so that we can promote a message of life and speak up for the vulnerable unborn children, so that their voice is not lost in this election.  Here is the link to our giving page.

Donate to the General Fund to support this opportunity.

This is such an exciting time.  I thank you for your generous support that has allowed us to issue Pro-Life Certifications to candidates who applied and were qualified, and conduct live Facebook interviews about life that were watched by so many the week before the election.

Please consider giving generously.

Blessings,

Camila (Wright) Zolfaghari
Executive Director
Georgia Life Alliance Committee

GLA’s priority legislation to strengthen the Positive Alternatives Grant Program that funds services for mothers and children, and promotes healthy childbirth, received a positive vote on the Senate Floor and will proceed to the House.

This bill will help pregnancy centers provide services and resources for women and children for up to a year after a child is born. We are excited about the passage of the bill and will now turn our attention to its passage in the House. There are twelve more days in this legislative session.

Please contact your representative and ask them to support SB 193

Answering God’s Call To Serve

Friends of Life,

It is with great excitement and awe of God’s sovereign plan that I have accepted role of serving Georgia Life Alliance as its new executive director.

When I first began discussing the possibility of stepping into this role, I told your incredible former executive director Emily Matson that if I accepted the position I would need four weeks to transition out of my old job as the Attorney General’s human trafficking prosecutor. I did not realize that several months later that would mean my first day on the job coincided with the oral arguments before the Georgia Supreme Court regarding the constitutionality of Georgia’s 20-week fetal pain bill. I ask you all to join me in prayer as we await the decision of the court.  The attorneys are currently drafting supplemental briefs to answer a follow-up question from the court.

As I begin this new position, I want to tell you a little about myself and how God has brought me to this place. I am the oldest of 17 children; four birth, two adopted from Bethany Christian Services, four from the state, and seven from China (I hope that adds up to 17.) I was homeschooled and went to law school many years ago expecting that God’s plan for my life would include work serving the unborn; but as I followed Him through the years He first led me to work protecting another vulnerable group, Georgia’s human trafficking victims.  I’m excited that I now have the opportunity, through GLA, to use all I’ve learned to now focus on protecting the lives of vulnerable unborn children.

I married in 2014 and we had a beautiful daughter in 2015. June 1, 2016, my husband was shot and killed by someone with no respect for the sanctity of human life. Suddenly, splashed across the headlines was Husband of Human Trafficking Prosecutor Shot and Killed. My job had nothing to do with his death, and best law enforcement can tell, it was a senseless random shooting; he was at the wrong light at the wrong time and someone with no respect for life took his life.

God has provided for us internally and externally, as we grieve his death, and I believe part of His provision has been giving me this opportunity to joint Georgia Life Alliance and work to cultivate a culture that values human life and to promote legislation that will protect the lives of the most vulnerable.

I hope to get to know so many of you. This first week has been both overwhelming and encouraging. I am so amazed at all God has accomplished through Georgia Life Alliance and I am humbled by the opportunity to stand on the shoulders of those who have been working tirelessly on behalf of the unborn and to let God work through me.

I appreciate this opportunity to serve and covet your prayers as we continue this work together.

Prayerfully,

Camila (Wright) Zolfaghari
