Rest is for the weak.  Conservatives attending CPAC dove right into important and substantial bright and early this morning.  A crowd gathered just after 9 a.m. to conduct a discussion on “saving freedom one life at a time.” 

With the majority of Americans now identifying themselves as “pro-life,” conservatives’ work in protecting the lives of unborn children is as important and pivotal as ever.  A panel of pro-life activists exchanged experiences and ideas for the future of the pro-life movement.  Here are a few notable takeaways from this morning:

---Parental involvement laws have been shown to decrease abortion rates by 13-15%; two parent involvement decreases the rate by 31%.

---Organizers are hoping/expecting the next annual March for Life to take place on an international scale for the first time.

---The "controversial" Tim Tebow ad had approx 82 million viewers during the Super Bowl; about 6% of those who viewed the ad (~5.5 million) report the Tebow ad made them re-think their position on abortion.
