Of course, this is great news! SFLA details some bad news as well, including the fact that Planned Parenthood is still good at marketing lies to our youth. In fact, 48% weren’t even sure whether or not Planned Parenthood provides abortion. That’s scary. And a wake-up call to us to keep spreading the truth. I personally think the saddest part of the study is that 58% of young adults don’t know where to point a pregnant friend in need. We definitely need to do a better job of making pro-life resources, crisis pregnancy centers, etc. more easily accesible and well-known. We can do this by finding out the resources in our area and letting our friends – specifically any young adults – know, with the request that they tell their friends. The information will spread if we make the effort to spread it. Let me know if you have questions on how to find out the resources in your area – I’m more than happy to help!
SFLA encourages pro-lifers to keep educating young adults. As part of the young generation, I join them in calling on all pro-lifers to give young adults the information that they need – whether they’re actively seeking it out or not. You make a difference for us when you speak the truth! Thank you! Keep it up! Consider purchasing copies of this book to hand out: ”Why Pro-Life?”. It’s an amazingly simple, clear, and interesting way to explain the details and the basics about the pro-life message. The books are only $1 each if you buy 50 or more. Why not buy enough to hand out to your church’s youth group, college group, or your high school kid’s class? Keep some extras on hand for that moment when you WILL need them =)
How do you think we can convince Christians – and others – in our culture to view the pro-life issue as something THEY need to get involved with instead of viewing it as a mere political issue? Where’s the disconnect? We look back on slavery and are convinced we would have done something to stop it, yet that was a “political issue” in its day. Any answers or thoughts? I’d love to hear what you think…
