Have you ever thought that it’s pretty stinkin’ hard to keep track of everything that goes on in this world related to the pro-life issue? I sure have! Every day, it seems, new developments are occurring. Happily, 2011 was one of the best years…if not THE best year…for pro-lifers since Roe v. Wade. Many new pro-life laws were put states. Congress held a vote to completely defund Planned Parenthood. (Sadly, it didn’t pass this time around.) Media attention is increasingly highlighting the pro-life issue. The recent GOP presidential pro-life forum, televised by C-SPAN and live-streamed by CNN is evidence of this.
So, four ideas for you to keep up with all that’s happening in the pro-life movement:
1) Subscribe to Google Alerts for news on “abortion,” “pro-life,” and “personhood.” Any other term relating to the issue that you’d like to watch is fair game! (Think Roe v. Wade, stem cell research, euthanasia, etc.)
2) Visit Live Action’s blog every day–or at least once a week–to catch up on news you may have missed. Live Action usually makes multiple posts by multiple writers every day! It’s a busy place over there =)
3) Sign up for Family Research Council’s annual ProLifeCon. This is coming up on January 23, and it’s a webcast. You can find out how to more effective in broadcasting the pro-life message from the comfort of your own home! The speakers include pro-life pioneer U.S. Rep. Chris Smith, Dr. Gerard Nadal, Live Action President Lila Rose, and Michael Clancy–the photographer of the famous picture where little Samuel Armas reaches out from his mother’s womb to grab the doctor’s finger. Sign up for the webcast here.
4) Watch the video of the GOP pro-life presidential forum. If you’re still undecided on who to vote for, this may help you make up your mind! (Hint, hint, don’t vote for Mitt Romney.) Here’s the link to the video.
Happy learning! Happy researching! And happy saving lives!!! Through God’s grace, we ARE making a difference. YOU are making a difference. Keep it up.
