Even though pictures of food, manicures, and selfies seem to be the dominant features on Instagram, there are ways to fill the pro-life gap by generating content that affirms the dignity of human beings at both ends of their lifetimes.
Here we offer five suggestions to show how pro-life you are when posting images to the most popular photo-sharing social media platform.
Whether you hold an ultrasound of your own child or one of yourself when you weren’t yet born, these black and white images of preborn babies reveal the little person developing quietly in the womb.
2.) Wearing your pro-life T-shirts
The most popular subject your Instagram followers want to see is YOU. So why not include your pro-life T-shirt collection? Or if you’re going to take a thousand cute photos of your little niece, be sure she’s wearing some cool pro-life apparel.
3.) Write pro-life messages using the things around you
Memes and word art are extremely popular under the #prolife hashtag. Aside from the fact that these messages are typically created using creative software and typography apps, these pro-life messages aren’t all that engaging. By composing the message for the camera, you’re creating an image that shows craftiness, originality, and includes YOU.
4.) Share the difficult times
A pregnancy loss feels like a permanent hole in the heart. Sharing your grief, even to online friends, gives witness to the dignity of the tiniest human being who never got to meet the rest of her family.
5.) Appreciate your grandparents’ legacy
Grandparents are just as responsible for your formation as Mom and Dad. Furthermore, they’ve acquired a lifetime of wisdom that exceeds you and your parents. By expressing your appreciation for them online, you set an example to your followers that honoring your mother and father includes honoring those who raised your mother and father.
