We Need Your Help!
The Christmas for the Preborn program helps local women and babies ... and it's a great project for harnessing the energy and enthusiasm of young people in your church.
The idea for the program is to pause during the season in which babies and children play so big a role and to remember the millions of babies who have been aborted. We reflect on the humanity of the preborn babies ... that they were fully expressed human persons ... and to reflect upon the great injustice of their deaths.
We also use the occasion to celebrate life by focusing on the babies whose mothers chose to let them live. And this is where youth groups come in: we ask youth groups to collect and donate diapers which we distribute to area women's support centers who provide a wide variety of free services to needy moms and babies. A couple of years ago we asked the local centers to estimate how many diapers they distribute in a year and the combined total came to over 70,000.
The support centers do an outstanding job in counseling, providing alternatives to abortion, providing medical care, material assistance and support, abstinance programs for young people, and parent/infant training programs so a big effort by youth groups to gather and donate disposable diapers will be a big help to them. Our goal this year is 10,000, so we'll need a lot of help! (The main need is for larger sized diapers: 3, 4, and 5)
Our program, which takes place in mid-December in front of the Women's Med Center abortion mill at 1401 East Stroop Road in Kettering, will include prayer, Christmas carols, and information on upcoming prolife events.
Participation in the program beginning in September or October is an ideal way to:
