The 6 Principles

Why do we do what we do?

This question requires the pro-life movement to stop and think about the principles that guide us every day. What are they? How can we talk about them, and what do they look like when we walk them out? These pro-life principles aren’t articulated often enough among the grassroots, and they rarely drive our political strategies, but it is important that we define them, understand them, and apply them consistently.

“We actually can articulate both biblical truth and biological facts as we engage our culture today because these two things are in perfect harmony.”

Sarah Quale, Personhood Alliance Education president
