This Friday, July 12, our parent organization—the Pro-Life Action League—kicks off our 14th annual “Face the Truth” Tour across northeastern Illinois.
Since 2000, the League has conducted a week-long tour all across the Chicagoland area. At each stop, League staff and volunteers line a busy intersection with graphic pictures of abortion to show the public what it really is. Get the full Tour itinerary here.
“That’s What an Aborted Baby Looks Like?”
Although it’s controversial, this pro-life tactic has proven itself enormously important in the fight against abortion.
Many people truly believe that what’s being aborted is merely a clump of cells or a blob of tissue. If you’ve never been part of a Face the Truth demonstration, you’d be amazed how often we hear passersby saying things like, “That’s what an abortion an aborted baby looks like?”
If you’ve heard people voice objections to Face the Truth, or if you have objections or questions yourself, please check out our Answering Common Objections page, where we answer some of those questions in depth.
Saving Babies, Helping Post-Abortive Women
Not only does Face the Truth change hearts and minds, but it actually saves lives, and helps women who have had abortions find help and healing.
During last year’s Tour, a woman approached one of our volunteerse, Luann, and told her that she had had an abortion 12 years ago, and that at the time, she felt she had no choice. She walked away, but remained standing nearby for several minutes. Twenty minutes later, she approached Luann again and said, â€œI keep looking at your picture, and I canâ€™t believe I did that to my baby.â€
She told Luann that when she had had her abortion 12 years ago, â€œNobody told me it was a baby.â€ Luann embraced the woman, talked with her for a while and then provided her with information on post-abortion healing.
That is that a Face the Truth Tour is all aboutâ€”boldly and honestly showing the awful truth of what abortion does to an unborn baby, not in a spirit of vindictiveness or pride, but of charity and compassion for all of abortionâ€™s victims.
Join the tour if you can, and please spread the word to your pro-life friends. There is nothing quite like being involved in this life-saving work.
And even if you can’t join in yourself, please hold up the Tour in your prayers.
