For many of our club members, the summer term has started. Maybe that means summer courses. Maybe that means working. Regardless, our pro-life work cannot stop just because we’re on a break from school. My challenge to you is to not shy away from the situations, even if they may seem awkward, that give you the opportunity to share the pro-life message with people.
Sometimes it just happens in conversation that the topic of involvement in the pro-life club or positions on life issues in general arises. We need to be ready at all times to articulate the pro-life message, and answer the questions people may have.
So what is that message? Simply put, it is that all human beings, born and unborn, have inherent value and dignity, and that killing human beings is morally wrong. One must then be ready to answer all sorts of other questions that come up, but the answer generally boils down to “Would we kill a born person for this reason? No? Then why should we accept the killing of the unborn for that reason?” It all comes back to the fact that the unborn are human, just like you and me.
