Christian children across the nation return to school this month. Those who are enrolled in public schools -- at a time when Common Core is tightening its grip -- will likely be faced with repeated attempts at anti-Christian indoctrination. Even more tragically, the majority of children in Christian schools and homeschools may never learn the essential truths they need to know in order to effectively advocate the Gospel of Life in an increasingly totalitarian and anti-life culture.

For legal abortion to end in America, Christian pastors must apply their talents, influence, and pulpit privileges to seven leadership urgencies. The need is dire.
Urgency 1: Restore integrity to Pro-life within the church, that our eyes might see and our ears hear.

Seeking to avoid the appearance of evil, and hoping to protect their younger members from corrupt influences, these leaders stand boldly against unwed pregnancy.
