More than 12,000 unborn children died from abortion in Minnesota last year. That's a stunning 20 percent increase. And it's going to get worse: Lawmakers just passed laws establishing abortion-up-to-birth, abolishing a program supporting pregnant women, and even repealing a measure guaranteeing lifesaving care for newborns.
What can we do to restore protection for the vulnerable? MCCL is launching a new “Save the 12,000” series of meetings across the state. At each meeting, MCCL will update attendees about the extremism of Minnesota’s current laws. We’ll also provide pro-lifers with the tools they need to have confident and effective conversations that persuade others. And we’ll lay out practical steps everyone can take that will save lives.
All are welcome to these free events. Bring family, friends, church and school groups, and others. Each meeting will last just over an hour. Attendees will receive a packet of helpful printed materials that will enable them to immediately put to use all the training they receive.
The pro-life message—grounded in scientific fact, committed to human rights for all, and drenched in love for mother and child—is true and compelling. If we speak boldly and with compassion, we will impact our state for life!
