Were there to be no support in the whole history of ethical and moral thought, were there no acknowledged confirmation from medical science, were the history of legal opinion to the contrary, we would still have to conclude on the basis of God's Holy Word that the unborn child is a person in the sight of God. He is protected by the sanctity of life graciously given to each individual by the Creator, Who alone places His image upon man and grants them any right to life which they have.

Take the Survivors Challenge:
The Survivors is a pro-life activist group for young people born after the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that decriminalized abortion. We have worked with them for many years and recommend their exciting training camp.
Do I believe the killing of thousands of innocent children every day is wrong?
Do I believe that someone should stand up and say something?

More About The Camp Itself...
The Survivors ProLife Training Camp takes place every summer in Southern California, a location that provides endless opportunities for exciting and effective activism. However, before you begin any activism, you will participate in four days of workshops and training sessions taught by experienced pro-life leaders. These workshops are designed to equip you to confidently present the pro-life message on the streets, in schools, and to your peers. Whether you've been in the pro-life fight for years, or are new to the cause, you will come away with a fresh perspective and better equipped to intercede for the pre-born. Training topics include:
Why Pro-Life?: The Basics, The Woman, The Child. A full-day introduction to the abortion debate. The Abortion Industry. Because no one can fight an effective battle without first knowing the opposition. From abortion methods to abortion providers and promoters, the dark history and current status of the abortion industry in America is exhaustively examined.
Persuasively Defending Life. In-depth apologetics and ambassadorship. Preparing you to represent the plight of the pre-born in any situation, teaching you to engage in effectively dialogue with the ultimate goal of impacting hearts and minds.
Activating Your Community. Taking the initiative, starting pro-life groups, engaging and activating your peers in their hometowns.
Media. From online resources to traditional print, television and radio, utilizing the power of the media to consistently present the message of life to the American people.
Sidewalk Counseling. Because the sidewalk in front of an abortion clinic is the last line of defense for a pre-born child and his mother, experienced sidewalk counselors will equip you to lovingly reach out to women with hope and alternatives to abortion.
Not only with the Survivors ProLife Training Camp train and equip you to be an effective voice for the voiceless, but also gives you an opportunity to try out a wide variety of pro-life events and activities during the second half of the camp.
For the final seven to ten days, you will be actively promoting life throughout Los Angeles and Orange County, taking a stand for the pre-born through sidewalk counseling, prayer vigils, street activism, campus outreach, news conferences, political witness, and working with local Pregnancy Resource Centers and maternity homes. Whatever your style, you will be able to find the pro-life outreach that works for you!
The Survivors believe that after promoting life in the public square, it's just as important to take time to enjoy life! From bonfires on the beach after a hard day of pro-life activism, to late-night broomball, the Survivors ProLife Training Camp experience isn't all work and no play.
