This Friday, April 20, as people go about their normal daily routine, hundreds of kids, teens, and families will don pro-life T-shirts for National Pro-Life T-Shirt Day 2018. Wearing a pro-life T-shirt will spark conversations about the culture of life with many of the people you encounter. NPLTD is a great way to spread the pro-life message and show others that you care about preborn babies.
How do I participate?
Simply wear a pro-life T-shirt on April 20 to school, work, home, or anywhere! This pro-life evangelism event is an easy way to show others that you want to foster respect for all persons, especially innocent preborn babies and their moms.
Don’t have a pro-life T-shirt? Find one at our site.
Join the Facebook event here and invite all of your friends to participate.
Staying at home all day? Post a picture of you and your family on social media using the hashtag #NPLTD18.
Someone just asked me about my shirt!
Prepare yourself with something to say (and instruct your kids how to respond). Say something like, “I’m wearing this shirt to show support for all pregnant moms and their babies” or “Every human being’s life is valuable!” Keep it positive and upbeat. You are wearing this shirt as a sign of your solidarity with your fellow human beings, not to signal your eagerness to argue with someone.
If a determined arguer comes along, respond with compassion and clarity. Abortion affects all of us, whether we know someone who has had an abortion or not. Our world is hurting from the millions of babies who die every year and the families who are broken apart because of abortion. Always speak with compassion; you don’t know what circumstances have prompted this response on their part.
National Pro-Life T-Shirt Day need not be just one day. Evangelizing the pro-life message is something we should do every day, all year round. NPLTD is just the beginning of many other activities you can do as a family to help build a culture of life. You can let others know that you support pregnant moms and preborn babies with a sign in your front yard or a bumper sticker on your car. Reach out to your neighbors, volunteer within your community, or pray for an end to evils like abortion and euthanasia.
Teach your children respect for human beings by encouraging them to reach out to the lonely kids at the playground or to help a neighbor with disabilities. Save your shirt and organize a local Pro-Life T-Shirt Day with your church, youth group, or neighborhood.
These are all small things everyone can do to help make a difference in the lives of innocent preborn babies. Do your part and show people you care!
