Advocacy can bring change, understanding, discussion, and new perspectives. It is important to recognize, especially within the pro-life movement, that all lives have value. In cases like my own, it is not just about changing hearts and minds outside of the pro-life movement, but also within. It is estimated that nearly 60 percent of individuals who say they are pro-life will make an exception for someone who conceives from rape or incest. In reality, this is simply misplaced compassion. Children such as myself still have immense value. It is about helping both mother and child, not one over the other.
The March for Life in Washington DC is a great opportunity to learn and participate in the largest pro life gathering in our country. Many cities across the country also offer a march to participate in. There are many other activities to get involved in throughout the pro life movement as well.
