20 Ways To Stand For Life

At My Faith Votes, we encourage you to do three simple things: PRAY, THINK, and ACT. It’s an everyday formula to kick start all we do.

We’ve compiled a list of 20 ways to stand for life. While there are endless opportunities to get involved, use this list to get started and help propel other individuals and communities to become informed, take action and stand for life.

PRAY.

Pray for a culture of life to be advanced throughout the country. Pray for our elected officials, especially those who are fighting for life. Download this prayer guide to help you pray for life.

THINK.

Be informed on the abortion issue. Many don’t know what really happens in the U.S. let alone their own neighborhoods. Discover the facts, see how to help, and take action at National Right to Life.

ACT.

You are the one to make a difference. Put your faith into action and do something today. Check out our 20 Ways to Stand For Life below to get informed and see how you can take action in the fight for life.
