Pro-life work while sheltering in place
If you find yourself with more time and less mobility than usual, here are some ways you can keep doing pro-life work:
1. Increase our own knowledge. We asked our followers what books and film/TV shows—whether giving a pro-life or pro-choice perspective—have informed their perspectives of the abortion debate. Below are partial lists, but you can read all of the book suggestions here and film/TV suggestions here.
