Pro-Life Activism for the Young (And Those Who Can Keep Up With Them!)

Jennie Stone is nearing graduation at Texas A&M University. But her experience in pro-life activism is already rich and compelling. For example, she started a pro-life club at her high school when she was only 16. She has worked with Heroic Media, Texas Alliance for Life and served on a sidewalk counseling team. So when Jennie shares a few tips on why and how young Christians can engage in effective pro-life ministry, she's really worth listening to.

So what can a middle or high-school age student do?  The list below consists of just a few ideas that students can do to spread awareness about abortion, even if they’re unable to vote...
