While COVID-19 has put most of our outreach projects (except for the Truth Truck) on hold for safety reasons, abortion is not cancelled — and getting involved with efforts to make abortion unthinkable and end the killing are more important now than ever.
Our team has been incredibly active in training and mobilizing pro-lifers during the pandemic, so that we can continue to educate the public through social media, and so that we can educate pro-lifers to be even more effective at changing hearts and minds. Through social media outreach now, we can continue to change the culture. And through online education, we can prepare pro-lifers to be ready to return with even more energy when it’s safe to resume outreach.
Here are 7 ways to get involved in the movement to fight against abortion during the pandemic:
1. Read the books!
CCBR has published several books on pro-life strategy and apologetics, and now is a great time to read them if you haven’t already! Learn how to how effective conversations about abortion and assisted suicide, why seeing the victims of abortion changes hearts and minds, and the background on how we came to this cultural moment.
2. Take CCBR’s Video Study Series
While many Christians understand the grave injustice that abortion is, they do not feel prepared to defend their position in today’s hostile culture. CCBR has created a video study seris to aid pro-life Christians by providing them with an accurate historic, scientific, and Biblical understanding of abortion.
This series is designed to run over five weeks, meeting once a week. Sessions begin with a 30 min educational video by one of CCBR’s speakers and continue with small group discussions guided by provided facilitator and participant guides.
Register now for the study series at special rates during the pandemic!
3. Join Our Webinars
We’re running several webinars every week for activists through the Toronto Against Abortion project, ranging from introductory topics on apologetics, heart apologetics and strategy to advanced topics diving deep into the pro-life movement and the abortion issue. Join our community online and get equipped to be an even more effective ambassador for pre-born human rights!
We’ll also be offering weekly group discussions so that people have a chance to practice mock dialogue and get feedback from our team members.
