It’s That Time of Year

—Posted by John (May 2, 2017 at 10:21 am)

Writing

Every year around this time, we receive numerous messages from high school and college students across the country who are seeking information on abortion for research papers they’re working on.

We expect this number to continue to grow over the next few weeks—a peak time for term papers.

When we receive messages like these, we first recommend that students check out our Q & A section.

We also offer to mail a complimentary student packet, consisting of a wide variety of pro-life literature.

If you would like one of these free student packets for yourself or for someone else, please fill out our contact form, and we’ll be happy to send you one!

Introduction from a New Guest Blogger

—Posted by Warren (February 29, 2012 at 4:47 pm)

Hey pro-lifers of all generations! My name is Warren D’Souza and I am currently a high school senior from Skokie, Illinois. I’ve always been a strong and devout Catholic but only recently did my activism in the pro-life movement take foothold in my life.

In the Summer of 2011, my best friend and I spent many hours volunteering at The Women’s Center in northern Chicago. TWC is a crisis pregnancy center that helps impoverished mothers choose the gift of life for their children in a friendly, supportive environment.

Through TWC I learned of Generations for Life and the Pro-Life Action League, and soon became a part of the summer Face the Truth Tours. Immersing myself into the network of pro-life leaders like John Jansen and Joe Scheidler was an incredible turning point in my life, and I found myself wanting more and more to stay active in both my faith and this noble cause.

Pro-Life Brothers Pool Halloween Candy to Raise Funds for League

—Posted by Eric Scheidler (November 8, 2011 at 11:28 am)

The pro-life Carney brothers

This has got to be about the most creative—and inspiring—pro-life fundraiser I’ve ever seen. Last week, the four Carney brothers—Jack (9), Joey (7), Michael (5) and Christopher (3)—decided to pool their Halloween candy and see if they could raise some money to help the Pro-Life Action League (GFL’s parent organization) save babies and their mothers from abortion.

To set their creative plan in motion, the two oldest, Jack and Joey, went with their Dad, Chris, to his office in downtown Chicago. They gave away their candy to people at the train station and at the office, accepting donations for the League. In all, they raised $368.98!

What’s especially touching about the boys’ contribution to the League’s effort is that they’re all experienced pro-life activists. They’ve joined the League’s Face the Truth Tours in the past, along with their parents and sisters—a great pro-life family!

The Carney Brothers hope other pro-life kids will take up their idea next year. I hope so, too—because that’s what the Pro-Life Action League is all about: finding dynamic ways to fight abortion, and then empowering others to join the effort.

Chris and his wife Millie must be very proud of their sons. So am I!

Hello from a Guest Blogger!

—Posted by Victoria (February 24, 2011 at 11:13 am)

Hello Everyone!

My name is Victoria and I am honored to have been invited to be a guest blogger on this website! I look forward to sharing some of my thoughts and insights on the pro-life movement, as well as my own experiences as a young adult trying to spread the culture of life in a culture of death.

I have been pro-life for as long as I can remember, recognizing even when I was young how wrong abortion is. I have been active in the pro-life movement since about 6th grade and continue to become more involved, as I know it is the most important human rights battle in our day. I also believe pro-life activism starts in the home, by treating family and friends with dignity. If our society is to recognize the humanity of the child in the womb, we must begin by treating those we know with the dignity owed to the human person. But more on this in a future post. (more…)

Dr. Bernard Nathanson Dies at Age 84

—Posted by John (February 21, 2011 at 10:57 pm)

Dr. Bernard Nathanson

It’s amazing how God works.

Nathanson was one of the founding members of NARAL (then known as the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws). At one time he operated what may have been the largest abortion clinic in the Western world, and he claims he was responsible for the deaths of over 75,000 unborn children.

Shortly after the development of ultrasound technology in the 1970s, he began to have doubts about abortion. Gradually, he came to recognize the humanity of the unborn child, and eventually, he became pro-life.

His “conversion” to being pro-life was not the result of some profound spiritual experience. In fact, he became active in the pro-life movement and remained active in the pro-life movement for many years as an atheist. (more…)

Young Speaker Making a Big Impact

—Posted by John (December 23, 2010 at 11:02 am)

Lia MillsLifeSite has a great article this week about Lia Mills, the 14-year old pro-life speaker from Toronto who has addressed crowds as large as 10,000 at last year’s Canadian National March for Life — even though she never really planned to be a public speaker.

I also just found out this morning that Lia will be one of the speakers at the first ever Teen Defenders Walk for Life in Washington, DC on January 24, prior to the March for Life.

The LifeSite article is here, and there’s more information on the Teen Defenders Walk for Life here.

The Devil Is in the Details

—Posted by John (October 15, 2010 at 2:52 pm)

detailsRecently on the Abortioneers — a group blog whose contributors work in the abortion industry — one of the contributors who goes by the name Desembarazarme posted an entry entitled “Beyond the First Trimester”.

As the title suggests, her post focuses primarily on second trimester abortions, but not before giving a brief explanation of first trimester abortion itself:

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I feel like most people who know what’s up know the gist of a first trimester abortion procedure. The cervix is minimally dilated, the doctor inserts a small plastic tube through the cervix and into the uterus, the tube is connected to the aspirator, which creates gentle suction to remove the pregnancy tissue, it takes five minutes, all is well, some cramping and bleeding are normal as the uterus return to a non-pregnant state. Everyone get that?

Well, no. Not from that explanation. (more…)

Laces for Life

—Posted by Annie (June 2, 2010 at 10:33 am)

lacesforlifeWant an easy way to support the work of Generations for Life?

Laces for Life is a new pro-life initiative that sells pro-life shoelaces, and each month they make a donation to a different pro-life organization.

During the month of June, Laces for Life will donate a portion of the proceeds for every pair of shoelaces sold to Generations for Life!

I encourage you to get a pair of shoelaces from Laces for Life this month — not only is it a great conversation starting way to help spread the pro-life message, but it is also a great way to help support our work at GFL.

Laces for Life’s ordering information is here.
