With the selection of a new Supreme Court Justice, many are wondering if (and hoping that) that the States will, once again, be allowed to pass laws that protect women and the unborn from the deception of abortion. If this happens, our voices will be even more needed, to help pass laws that value every human life.
This unique pro-life training is designed to equip you with the understanding and tools needed for having meaningful and effective conversations about abortion. The workshop is designed to form the heart, mind, and voice.
The Heart – Develop a deeper understanding of why so many of our friends and family, who have good hearts, support legal abortion or have participated in an abortion.
The Mind – Learn about the legal and cultural forces that fuel legal abortion in our country. Understand the different arguments for legal abortion and their flaws.
The Voice – Learn how to effectively discuss abortion with friends and strangers. Become equipped to respond to the most common and challenging arguments for abortion with compassion and confidence.
