Action Segment: Write letters to the editor.  With media, “think small” – this may be counterintuitive, but people read small local papers and you’ll get in more easily. Have a date marked on your calendar to send in your monthly letter or your regular press release. Use the occasion of your pro-life meeting to send in a letter as a group.

Action Segment:  Organize a community literature drop.  Get students, a group of friends or one friend and take the photos of abortion, the diagrams, or any pro-life literature of your choosing.  Communicate the pro-life message to your neighbor. Don’t put the literature in a mailbox, but rather on the door or on a car. You could also stand on public property outside of the Church.  For flavor, notify the local media that this is being done. You’ll get reaction, especially if you are distributing graphic images.  Notify the small local papers as well.

Episode 9: Good Counsel Homes.  Guest: Chris Bell, Founder & President.

Action Segment:  Discourage local doctors from doing abortions.  Undertake an effort to expose them.  Find out if a doctor does abortions by trying to make an appointment – it’s not a lie; you’re just asking if you can make an appointment. What if it were a clinic with appointments to kill 3-year olds? Would you hesitate to try to make an appointment in order to expose them? Yes? Then what’s the difference?

Home school groups could say the prayer.  Place the prayer in Eucharistic adoration chapels.  Parishes can say the Prayer to End Abortion before or after Masses.  Put the prayer inside of hymnals, or suggest it for conclusion of intercessions; prayer groups, bible studies, RCIA program, youth group meetings – at least make sure those responsible know about it!!!  Eucharistic Ministers could take it to the homebound too.
