Whether veteran or newcomer, you can contribute greatly to the rebuilding of a culture of life

A mother of a preschooler and a baby wrote to me recently, wanting to get involved in the pro-life movement for the sake of her two daughters. Her enthusiasm warmed my heart.

Such inquiries are not uncommon. 

On any given day, someone from Pennsylvania may contact me, desiring to find a way to help preborn babies, their mothers and fathers, the frail elderly, and people with disabilities.

Their personal stories may differ, but they hold in common the view that innocent human life is precious and needs to be protected. Although they may be (and typically are) busy with many things, they feel a tug at their heart. They sense the need to do something to help alleviate the scourge of abortion and assisted suicide and the threat of euthanasia.

They may have found the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation, an affiliate of National Right to Life, through a simple Google search. They browse our website and yearn to learn more and to do more.

The fact of the matter is that the pro-life movement can use your talents, no matter what they may be. Your skills may involve organizing, writing, speaking, singing, crafting—whatever your unique abilities, you can find a home in the pro-life cause.

I have seen volunteers put together baby showers to benefit local pregnancy resource centers…crochet “welcome to the world” caps for newborn babies…and plan trips to meet their state lawmakers to discuss vitally important pro-life issues. The creativity and innovation present in the pro-life movement are a true inspiration.

Some of our volunteers have been laboring in the pro-life vineyards for 40 years or more…others are brand new to the movement. Whether veterans or newcomers, they can all contribute greatly to the rebuilding of a culture of life in our land.
