Pro-Life Action League Uses Handbooks, Not Handguns as Weapon
June 5, 2009
CHICAGO, (christiansunite.com) -- In light of abortionist George Tiller's tragic death, the Chicago-based Pro-Life Action League is encouraging others to use a different weapon against abortion.
The League has published a free, pocket-sized, 96- page handbook, Sharing the Pro-Life Message, that arms pro-lifers with the facts, figures and reasoned arguments they need to share the truth about abortion with compassion and conviction.
"It has always been my philosophy that we convert abortionists," said Joseph M. Scheidler, the League's national director. "As activists committed to saving lives, we vigorously oppose violence."
The handbook is designed to change the hearts and minds of those who support abortion, one by one, through respectful dialog on this controversial issue.
"If you've ever had to explain or defend the pro-life message to a friend, family member, co-worker or even a complete stranger, you need this handbook," League communications director Eric Scheidler says. "We're giving it away for free because we're convinced it will help save lives."
The League hopes that pro-life Americans will use this book to work peacefully toward changing hearts and minds on abortion.
"The only weapon the pro-life movement needs is truth," Scheidler says. "And that's what Sharing the Pro- Life Message offers."
Any pro-lifer in the U.S. or Canada can order a copy of Sharing the Pro-Life Message at www.FreeProLifeHandbook.com. Bulk orders for church, school or pro-life groups also are available.
About Pro-Life Action League
Pro-Life Action League was founded by Joseph M. Scheidler in 1980 with the aim of saving unborn children through non-violent direct action. Through prayer vigils outside abortion facilities and sidewalk counseling, the League reaches out to abortion- bound women and couples with abortion alternatives, confidential counseling and access to pregnancy resources.
Since July 2007, the League has been at the center of the controversy surrounding Planned Parenthood's flagship abortion facility in Aurora, Ill., dubbed, "Ground Zero" of the abortion battle by abortion supporters and opponents alike. The League has closed eight abortion clinics in Chicago alone and nearly a hundred across the country.
The Pro-Life Action League is a nonprofit organization, supported solely by private donations. For more information, visit www.prolifeaction.org.
