Death. Apathy. Women as Pawns. Lies, Inaccuracy, Misinformation. 

These are the things Roe and abortion have brought to us.

Live Action’s awesome magazine, “The Advocate” is now available online! This magazine is designed to be han

ded out on college campuses (and high schools and church youth groups) around the nation. It’s written specifically for the younger generation, but its information is appropriate for older generations, too. In the magazine, Live Action’s writers expose the truth about abortion and encourage people around the nation to TAKE A STAND. Here’s how Live Action explains The Advocate:

As one college student recently told us, “I was on the fence about abortion before, but after reading The Advocate and seeing those images, I’m now pro-life”. Every edition of The Advocate bears witness to the momentum the pro-life movement is gaining in our culture, especially among our youth.

You can get your own FREE copies to distribute (please do this!! Even if you only want five…) by clicking here. Pastors, please get these for your youth groups (and your entire congregation). Political activists, please get these to pass around your clubs and to leave in your party offices. Teens and college students, please get these for your friends and fellow students. People in general, please get these to give out to ANYONE you know. Even giving it to one person can make all the difference in the world. Abortion can end one person, one heart, at a time…

I was honored to be asked to write in the Winter 2012-2013 edition of The Advocate. I was asked to write on “Forty Years of Roe, Five Years of Live Action.” So, if you’ve ever wondered just what Roe has brought us, and if you’ve ever wondered just what Live Action does, you can read my article (and the whole magazine) here.

After you read, let me know what you think – what has Roe brought to America, to women, to the unborn children, to your friends and family, to you?

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 =)

Ok, I’ve detailed more about SFLA’s study on my post at Live Action.  Or, you can look at the study for yourself here.

 

QUESTION:

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…
