Acadiana Right to Life, along with Louisiana Right to Life, will host the fifth annual Chers Bébés: Acadiana’s Soirée for Life, on Thursday, Nov. 8 at Cathedral Hall in Lafayette.
Chers Bébés benefits the Dr. Zerben Bienvenu and Dr. William Smith Fund for Acadiana Pro-Life Education, dedicated to the pro-life education of middle and high school students across Acadiana through interactive presentations and activities. Through these efforts we continue to strengthen the pro-life spirit of Acadiana for generations to come!
This year’s event will be held in honor of the late Wayne Frederic and Dr. James Godchaux and Mrs. Kathleen Godchaux, who have served Acadiana’s pro-life community for many years and set remarkable examples to follow.
Wayne Frederic, who passed away in 2006, was a professor of Latin at the University of Southwestern Louisiana (now University of Louisiana-Lafayette). His contributions to the Right to Life movement date back to the 1970s and 1980s and were instrumental in the success of the Acadiana Right to Life program. Wayne was a very strong member and participant in the local chapter and was well known for providing many classroom lectures to groups and organizations throughout the Acadiana area.
Dr Jimmy and Mrs. Kathleen have worked as a team since 1976 for the Right to Life effort and have contributed in many different ways to the state and local Right to Life organizations, including participating in marches and projects. Dr. Jimmy, who currently serves on the Louisiana Right to Life Board of Directors, has testified before a state legislative committee pertaining to the Hippocratic Resource on several occasions. Kathleen has lobbied the Legislature on pro-life issues, and from 1992 to 2012 she maintained the database and newsletter formatting for the Acadiana Right to Life chapter. Both Dr. Jimmy and Mrs. Kathleen have also served on the Board of the Women’s Center of Lafayette since its very beginning in 1999.
