Dear Fellow Pro-lifer:
I just read an interesting article in the National Review. Tim Busch, the founder of the Napa Institute writes that the pro-life movement must fight for the culture, not just the law. Pulse agrees and has done both for more than half a century.
He goes on to say:
“… as Tuesday’s elections made painfully clear, large numbers of Americans currently support abortion in some form or fashion. Their minds are made up well before they get to the ballot box. If we hope to change election outcomes, we must change people’s minds well before the voting starts.”
Newer readers of our blogposts may not realize the extent of Pulse Life Advocates involvement in promoting a culture of life at the Iowa state house. Together with the Iowa Coalition of Pro-Life Leaders, we have chipped away at the culture of death that once dominated Iowa politics. We are one court decision away from having a Heartbeat bill (passed twice by the Iowa legislature!) implemented.
But Tim Busch is absolutely correct. Ultimately, you save more unborn babies when you change the culture of rank and file Iowans.
So here’s what I’d like to do. I’d like to give you a quick video overview of how Pulse has impacted, and will continue to impact, Iowa’s culture with smart, loving pro-life outreach:
The March For Life.
We’ve taken tens of thousands of students to this watershed human rights events in Washington DC for decades. Many of these pilgrims have grown and become Iowa leaders.
A Clash of Creeds
We used the theatrical arts to stage a play that showcased the clashing philosophies of three important women of the 20th century: Ayn Rand; Margaret Sanger; and Saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta. We used their own words, and just to make it even more fun, the moderator was the great G.K. Chesterton.
The Holy Family Project
Families are the ‘soul’ solution for a wounded world. This epic 4-part production explored the spiritual foundations of the family, and how families help prevent abortion.
What should your kids and grandkids say when confronted by smug abortion proponents at school or on college campuses? We created 24 videos of less than a minute each to show them exactly how to respond.
How to Raise Pro-Life Children
Our new 4-part video series will be released next week and show you how to raise pro-life children.
Pulse does more, so much more than what I’ve listed here. But these were big projects that have made a big splash here in the Hawkeye State.
If you want us to turn a ‘big splash’ into a tsunami, donate to our educational pro-life outreach today.
