The power of one
In the early 1900s a young woman set out on a mission to make birth control an acceptable practice and rid the world of the weak, the disabled, and the unwanted—those she and her cohorts deemed unfit to live. This woman, Margaret Sanger, changed the course of history. She pushed for, and saw before her death, the legalization of birth control. She founded Planned Parenthood—the organization responsible for the destruction of millions upon millions of tiny human beings’ lives through abortion and contraception. Margaret Sanger was clearly committed to her evil cause, leaving behind a haunting legacy of promiscuity, birth control, and abortion.
Even moral, upstanding people can learn something from Margaret Sanger’s story: All it takes is one person to change the course of history.
Flash forward to 2015 and you’ll see all over the headlines a young man, still in his 20s, who may very well take down the evil giant created by Sanger all those years ago. It’s a true David and Goliath story. David Daleiden is a man on a mission—a holy, righteous mission intended to save lives. He worked under Lila Rose, founder of Live Action, before setting off on his own and devoting his life to working undercover to expose the true horror of Planned Parenthood. He’s busy this summer releasing a series of videos that expose Planned Parenthood for who it is—an organization of cold-blooded killers who take advantage of young women, making them believe that abortion is the answer to their problems. He’s bold. He’s unapologetic. He’s unwavering in his love of life. And he’s committed. He’s just one person—one young man, perhaps like some of your children or students. And he is changing the course of history right before our eyes. We pray you take notice.
If you asked David Daleiden how he prepared for this important investigation, he’d tell you that being ready for this mission took a lot more than courage. It took education, dedication, and determination. He used his talents as an investigative journalist to alert the public to Planned Parenthood’s lies and horrific practices. With people like David Daleiden, we have hope for the future. All it takes is one person to stand up against injustice and change the world.
If you want your students to change the world, you have to get them to move beyond just “being” pro-life. You have to motivate them and educate them. You have to open their eyes to the full picture—the past, present, and future of both the culture of life and the culture of death. It may seem like a daunting task, but you can achieve it, and we can help.
American Life League’s Culture of Life Studies Program is dedicated to helping parents and teachers teach pro-life principles to their students. Our lessons are created with the expertise of pro-life leaders, doctors, and lawyers, as well as veteran teachers and homeschool parents. Each lesson is easily incorporated into an existing class or curriculum without requiring extra research on the part of the parent or teacher. You have so much to gain by incorporating these lessons into your curriculum.
The students in your home and classroom can change the course of history in their own way. We aren’t all called to make headline news, but we are all called to change the world. By educating your children and your students, you are preparing them to impact real people and real lives. Who knows, you may be gifting them with the knowledge and courage to one day take down an evil empire like Planned Parenthood. Or you may be preparing them to save one tiny human being’s life from abortion or set one of their peers on the path from darkness to light. Give your students the chance to impact society by giving them an education in the culture of life that they deserve.
