Distance Yourself From Harmful Pro-Life Actions

Society should treat both pregnant women and preborn children with respect. We appreciate groups like Sidewalk Advocates for Life who gently encourage women considering abortion to leave the abortion facility and instead take advantage of life-affirming resources.

Abortion is completely unacceptable, but it’s not always time to make a pro-life argument. Love the person you’re talking to. Be gentle, especially if they’re upset. If they consider you to be an “enemy,” they might not be ready to think about new ideas you could present anyway. Conversations about emotionally charged topics like abortion are most productive when both parties are calm and open to new perspectives.
