Help Her Be Brave: Discover Your Place in the Pro-Life Movement

Ashlee Garcia

This article originally appeared here.

When I first met Amy Ford, I was overcome by her fierce passion and love for women facing unplanned pregnancies. As someone who grew up thinking the only way to serve in the pro-life movement was to stand in a picket line or to write a letter to my senator, Ford’s pro-love message caught me off guard and transformed the way I think about being pro-life. In her book, Ford casts a vision that everyone within the church can help abortion vulnerable women be brave and know and experience the love of Christ. Her belief that “if abortion became illegal today, the church would not be ready”(15) is convicting. Each chapter is filled with simple and practical ways to compassionately show these women the love and grace of Christ. She shows even the most unlikely pro-life advocate how they can use their time and talents to serve women and help them be brave.
