Together We Can Promote Pro-Abundant Life Ministry
The purpose of Making Life Disciples is to transform your church’s response to abortion. Since Roe v Wade passed in 1973, there have been approximately 1 million abortions per year in the United States. In order for this number to change, the Church must step up and step in, offering love and compassion to those facing unplanned, unexpected, or unexpectedly complicated pregnancies
But Making Life Disciples does not require your church to attend a march, tell folks how to vote, or talk to members of Congress. It simply trains your church on how to approach unplanned pregnancies with the same lens your church uses to approach hunger, grief, poverty, and addiction — a discipleship lens. According to data from The Guttmacher Institute, 54% of women who have abortions identify themselves as Christians. Our research found that 4 in 10 women were regularly attending church at the time of their abortion.
Making Life Disciples is, first, a way to equip a select group of first-responders in your church to offer compassion, hope, and help to women and men facing unplanned pregnancies, especially those from Piedmont Women’s Center, and, second, a way to raise the life-affirming IQ of your whole church—including senior leadership—related to abortion.
