ProLife101 Lesson 1

ProLife101 Lesson 1

Welcome to the first session of the Pro-Life 101 course: The History of Abortion in America. Since the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade, abortion has been one of America’s most fiercely debated issues. 

Despite the constant political and social debate, few Americans know how we got to the place where close to one million unborn children are aborted each year in our country. For millions, Roe has always been law. If we are ever going to be able to overturn Roe v Wade in hearts, we must first learn what led to the infamous decision and what will happen if it’s reversed. 

Today we will hear from the former VP and General Counsel for Americans United for Life, Jeanneane Maxon. She will share with us the legal and cultural forces that brought about Roe v. Wade and the historical impact of that decision. She will also explain what would happen if the Court overturned Roe. Download and print this worksheet for use with the lesson.

It can be easy to focus so much on the immediate physical consequences of abortion that we lose sight of the spiritual impact the procedure has on women and men. Be sure to join me next time to learn about the spiritual consequences of abortion.
