Activities during the third Leadership for Life Base Camp included dynamic speakers, interactive games, and prayer in front of the only free-standing surgical abortion facility in Grand Rapids.Thomas Lawrence, prolife ambassador, inspired six high school students to grow in their prolife convictions and to become champions for the unborn.
Cassidy, former Grand Rapids Right to Life student trailblazer, motivated the students to act on their prolife beliefs. Aside from liking social media posts, she encouraged them to become involved in the prolife movement by praying at the abortion facility, reaching out to abortion-minded friends and family members, and volunteering with life-affirming organizations.
A special guest speaker spoke about her decision as a young woman to have an abortion. She shared her testimony of regret, forgiveness, and redemption. The students asked many insightful questions and a great discussion followed her talk.
Thomas gave a presentation on the Art of Prolife Persuasion and helped students confidently answer the difficult questions posed by those who support abortion.
The students left equipped with the tools to defend their prolife values and emboldened to live their prolife beliefs.
The event was held on Friday, August 6, at Life International in downtown Grand Rapids.
