Pro-Life on Vacation

So you’ve decided to take a few days off from work to go on a nice, relaxing vacation, leaving your hectic life behind for a bit.

The thought, “We’re in the middle of a war, soldier!” pops into your head, and you realize that, while you are going to be taking it easy, many of the youngest of the young are still facing imminent death at the hands of a cruel abortionist. What do you do? While some are able to simply ignore the suffering of others, your average pro-life activist is NOT that person. What you need is to find a way to integrate pro-life action into your vacation plans!

Whether you are taking a much needed vacation or visiting with grandma in the next city over, there are a few simple things you can do when planning a trip that will make an impact in the lives of the preborn:

  • Plan vacations or trips around major pro-life events (like the March for Life, Walk for Life West Coast, state rallies, speakers, etc).
  • Visit abortion clinics where there is a pro-life witness organized by locals. I’ve learned a lot from just meeting and listening to “small-town” pro-lifers over the years.
  • Contact local pro-life organizations before you visit an area and check for events; ask them if you could volunteer or help them out in any way during your stay.

There is no harm in taking some time to rest and relax—really! But if you’re one of those people who cannot leave the pro-life mission behind, heed these suggestions and make an impact wherever you go!
