Authored by Fr. Frank Pavone (Founder and Director of Priests for Life).

Suggested Activities to Stop Abortion:

  1. Pray daily for an end to abortion, for women tempted to have abortions, for doctors and nurses, for legislators, for clergy, for those who work in the pro-life movement, and for those who do not realize how wrong abortion is. Form pro-life prayer teams or prayer groups in homes or parishes. Visit The Great Prayer Project – End Abortion to join in a continuous prayer to end abortion.
  2. Read! Be more informed about abortion from such books as Abortion: Question and Answers, by Dr. and Mrs. J.C. Willke.
  3. Wear pink and blue ribbons as a sign of support for pre-born boys and girls. Put the ribbons on cars, trees, etc.
  4. Wear the “Precious Feet” pin that shows the baby’s feet at 10 weeks after conception. (Available from Heritage House)
  5. Use pro-life pins, decals, envelopes, bumper stickers, T-shirts, posters, etc. (Order from Victory Won, 1-800-767-7258 or Heritage House 1-800-858-3040). Place posters and literature on public bulletin boards in supermarkets and other facilities.
  6. Take part in First Amendment activities such as Life Chains (National Life Chain (CA), 530-671-5500), prayer vigils (Helpers of God’s Precious Infants (NY), 718-853-2789), literature distribution, pickets, and sidewalk counseling. Attend the Annual January 22 March for Life in Washington DC (202-Life-377). Place pro-life yard signs on your property.
  7. Use checks which carry a pro-life message. Contact Promise Checks, 1-800-977-6647.
  8. Send letters or articles to newspapers, to your elected officials, and other persons, institutions, and publications regarding respect for life. Have a group of people willing to sign letters that others write. For samples, visit www.priestsforlife.org/letters.
  9. Speak up with courage and charity in defense of pre-born babies.
  10. Encourage your priest, minister, or rabbi, to speak out against abortion. Priests for Life has resources (1-888-PFL-3448, ext. 237).
  11. Book announced Masses for the intention of an end to abortion, and write such intentions on the prayer intention cards that various organizations may mail to you.
  12. Take part in local projects and pro-life activities. For information, contact your parish or local pro-life group. Join in pro-life Scripture or rosary services or prayer groups.
  13. Leave pro-life literature wherever you can: in public places, at restaurants, as inserts in the mail you send, on cars, etc. Give literature to friends. Send it also in prepaid business reply envelopes that come in the mail. Include it in cards you send for Christmas, birthdays, and other occasions.
  14. Get on the mailing list of pro-life organizations. Donate to them. Volunteer for them. A catalog of organizations is available from International Life Services (CA), 213-382-2156.
  15. Find out whether candidates running for public office support abortion, and tell others. Send pro-abortion politicians the US Bishops’ document “Living the Gospel of Life.” Help with voter registration and distribution of voter guides. Become involved, as citizens, in political campaigns. Vote in such a way that will advance the protection of life.
  16. Use paid advertising, in the Yellow pages and elsewhere, to spread pro-life information.
  17. Encourage mothers who have been harmed by abortion to bring suits against the abortion industry. For advice, call 1-800-U-CAN-SUE (Legal Action for Women).
  18. Donate pro-life books to your local libraries, schools, colleges, and Churches. Request such books at your libraries and bookstores.
  19. Get pro-life programs onto local cable TV stations.
  20. Promote adoption. For information, call the National Council For Adoption in Alexandria, VA (703-299-6633) or the Catholic Counseling Services at 1-800-BABY-DUE.
  21. Publicize pro-life events that groups are holding.
  22. Keep informed of national legislative efforts by calling the National Right to Life legislative hotline in Washington DC at 202-626-8800 x120. Visit www.nrlc.org.
  23. Fly the flag at half-mast in respect for the babies killed by abortion.
  24. Conduct fundraising efforts for pro-life groups: car-washes, bake-sales, raffles, dinners, penny drives, etc.
  25. Run a pro-life booth at fairs, rallies, conventions.
  26. Establish a memorial stone to the preborn in a local cemetery or on Church grounds.
  27. Do pro-life work on a full-time basis. Inquire at Priests for Life, 888-PFL-3448.
  28. Do not use the terms, “going to be a mother (or father)”, “expecting a child” or “a child on the way” when speaking of pregnancy. The child is already there in the womb!
  29. Attend annual pro-life conventions, such as March for Life (202-LIFE-377) or National Right to Life (202-626-8800). Sponsor a student to attend such conferences. Recommend speakers to other groups and invite them to your community organizations.
  30. Get to know reporters and producers in the media. Inform them. Call in to radio and TV talk shows, and ask questions of the pro-life speakers so as to give them more chance to talk.
  31. Gather friends in your home and show pro-life videos, such as “Life Talk” from Life Dynamics (1-800-800-LIFE), the “Be Not Afraid” Holy Hours provided by the Apostolate for Family Consecration (Ohio) 800-77-FAMILY, or videos from Priests for Life (888-PFL-3448). Show these videos to your children’s friends.
  32. Do scholarly study and research.
  33. In graduation ceremonies, include a remembrance of those who would have been graduating but were aborted.
  34. Use the Internet to spread the message. Put a pro-life signature on your emails. Send pro-life messages to your email lists. Visit and learn from pro-life websites. Start a pro-life website.

  5. Sabrina says:

    If it wasn’t for the protesters at an abortion clinic I would not be here today. My mom wanted an abortion, was ready to go, waiting on the doc. and the protesters talked to my grandparents and told them how wrong it is, and my grandparents told my mom they would raise me if she kept the baby. And they did. I will never forgive my mom! So anything makes a difference!! Protesters saved my life! And if it wasnt for them, I wouldnt have a beautiful child of my own. Do anything you can to stop this problem!

  6. Eve says:

    Great list! I also think that you should add:

    Talk to youth about safe sex.
    Send letters to your state representative to introduce comprehensive sex education in schools.

    We must make sure that our youth are properly to eliminate abortion!

  7. Eve says:

    *properly informed.

  8. April says:

    These things wont work. If somebody prayed and put pro-choice stickers everywhere would YOU change your mind about abortion? You wont. So they wont either. What you can do is support Obamacare since access to health care reduces the number of abortions people have. Also inform men on their responsibilities. Teach “don’t rape” instead of “don’t get raped” teach “use more than a condom or don’t have sex” to men rather than “It’s the woman’s fault and responsibility alone” and “But she told me she was on the pill” Men need to step up and be responsible since women do not impregnate themselves. Instead of saying “you should not have let him talk you into it” say “don’t take her into it” Making sure babies can go to good homes faster rather than getting lost in the system will also help prevent abortions. If a woman feels she has no choice she will get an abortion even if it’s dangerous and illegal. To stop abortions we need to make it better for women to have a baby. The means affordable medical care and programs that can help take care of the child.

    Abortion is wrong and selfish. You are so wrong and confused that you will kill an innocent child? How in any way, shape or form, is that all right? Look at all the people that have great accomplishments. If their mothers had gone round the bend, who knows what might have happened!

    And that why I’m pro-life.

  10. Sam says:

    Excellent advice and much needed. Abortion is killing and if you have morals then killing is wrong, simple. Just use COMMON SENSE and don’t kill children(unborn or not, there’s no difference). Also I saw a comment from April saying we should support Obamacare, please don’t support ANYTHING that murderer says. It’s people like Obama that are ruining the world with brainwashing communist agendas. It is no coincidence that the majority of people who support killing unborn children also support the likes of Obama. Just take one look at his first campaign “bring the troops home” was one of his main slogans, now ask yourself “are they home?”. No of course not there off killing more innocent men women and children.

    Some of these ideas are fucking stupid. for example:” In graduation ceremonies, include a remembrance of those who would have been graduating but were aborted.”
    Why on earth would kids want to be reminded of something so horrible on their graduation day?

  13. Raphaelraw says:

    Ladies and girls who abort are confused and they don’t know what to do the only thing to prevent women from aborting is to illegalise abortion

  14. Jesse says:

    this is good info!

  15. Mohammad says:

    I absolutely love your blog and find a lot of your post’s to be precisely what I’m
    looking for. Would you offer guest writers to write content to suit
    your needs? I wouldn’t mind producing a post or elaborating on a number of the subjects you write about here. Again, awesome site!

  16. Bernie says:

    I cannot understand why some people think it is acceptable to kill a baby in the womb but im sure they wouldvbe horrified to think off a baby been killed after it is born. A baby is a baby no matter what stage of development it is at.life begins at conception. The DNA for that baby is laid down a conception. What has this world come to when it is killing its own children. Do people no longer believe in god?

  17. Ryan says:

    Abortion is murder! It needs to be stopped!!!

  18. Minna says:

    i have felt strongly about abortion since i decided to write a project on it. i had no idea how they extracted the poor fetus and i realized i really couldnt stand the thought that i could have ended up in the hands of a doctor with out a heart. it is truely a horrid thought that about 4 MILLION babies are being aborted EACH DAY. as an eighth grader, i notice that already children are being foolish and being sexual. they think that because abortion is a easy way to get out of a bad reputaion or not lettiong their parents know about them being involved. but they dont realize that when the child is taken out of the womb it is crying. most of the time it has fingers and toes and is LIVING. they are told that the baby cant feel the pain of being slaughtered in a doctors office. reality of it is; that baby can feel. it is alive and is breathing and thinking. IT CAN FEEL. i am so glad my mother chose to keep me.
    an alternative to having a baby is to keep it. give it to a family that maybe cant have children and really wants one. abortion is selfish and cruel. not only are you taking a life but you are breaking the hearts of a lonely couple that cant give birth. think long and hard about abortion, ladies. if you still doubt, look up how they kill that baby. it will change your mind.
