Pro-Life Action League Deploys Secret Weapon in Abortion Battle

CHICAGO, Feb. 24 /Christian Newswire/ -- A new resource offered by the Chicago-based Pro-Life Action League is designed to change the hearts and minds of those who support abortion, one by one.

The League has published a free, pocket-sized, 96- page handbook, "Sharing the Pro-Life Message," that arms pro-lifers with facts, figures and reasoned arguments they need to share the truth about abortion with compassion and conviction.

"If you've ever had to explain or defend the pro-life message to a friend, family member, co-worker or even a complete stranger, you need this handbook," League communications director Eric Scheidler says. "We're giving it away for free because we're convinced it will help save lives."

The timing of the handbook is no coincidence.

"Now that the most pro-abortion administration in U.S. history has taken office, it's more crucial than ever before that every pro-life American work to change American hearts and minds on abortion," Scheidler says. "'Sharing the Pro-Life Message' is our secret weapon for the difficult years ahead. We may not have access to the White House or the big media outlets, but we've got the truth."

Any pro-lifer in the U.S. or Canada can order a copy of "Sharing the Pro-Life Message" at www.FreeProLifeHandbook.com. Bulk orders for church, school, or pro-life groups also are available.

About Pro-Life Action League
Pro-Life Action League was founded by Joseph M. Scheidler in 1980 with the aim of saving unborn children through non-violent direct action. Through prayer vigils outside abortion facilities and sidewalk counseling, the League reaches out to abortion- bound women and couples with abortion alternatives, confidential counseling and access to pregnancy resources.

Since July 2007, the League has been at the center of the controversy surrounding Planned Parenthood's flagship abortion facility in Aurora, Ill., dubbed, "Ground Zero" of the abortion battle by abortion supporters and opponents alike. The League has closed eight abortion clinics in Chicago alone and nearly a hundred across the country.

The Pro-Life Action League is a nonprofit organization, supported solely by private donations. For more information, visit www.prolifeaction.org.
