The effectiveness of any pro-life activity is strongly influenced by the quality of education behind it. While many Christians are against abortion, substantially fewer have reasons for their position, and fewer still are able to explain those reasons to others. As a result, many pro-lifers have little to no conviction about their position on abortion and thus take no action to stop it. Others who attempt to take action are often disregarded by abortion supporters as having unfounded opinions.
Here are some starting points for increasing your conviction and for improving your ability to discuss the issue of abortion:
- Read Pro-Life 101, by Scott Klusendorf.
- Read The Unaborted Socrates, by Peter Kreeft.
- Read the resources on CCBR’s website, particularly the section "Pro-Life Classroom"
