OCTOBER 27, 2005, The Human Life Foundation is proud to host THE THIRD ANNUAL GREAT DEFENDER OF LIFE DINNER honoring NAT HENTOFF. Nat Hentoff is a renowned expert on First Amendment rights, the Bill of Rights, the Supreme Court - and the fight to defend human life. Throughout his career, he has used his enormous journalistic talent to defend the right to life of the unborn, the newly-born, the frail elderly and the disabled. Our founder, J. P. McFadden, who was the inspiration for this award, greatly admired Mr. Hentoff for his eloquence in the cause of life, and for his integrity. Since 1984, he has appeared regularly in our pages, with hard-hitting articles decrying abortion, the unjust treatment of pro-life protestors, euthanasia/assisted suicide, and the killing of the disabled. In recent years, Hentoff worked tirelessly to bring the plight of Terri Schiavo to the public eye. Mr. Hentoff is the author of many books on free speech, education, and jazz; he has also written novels, children's books, and biographies, including John Cardinal O'Connor: At the Storm Center of a Changing Church. His latest book is The War on the Bill of Rights and the Gathering Resistance. Click here for more information.
