How Can You Add Pro-Life Education to Your Child’s Day?

By Susan Ciancio

Are you a parent wishing to instill pro-life values in your child? A homeschooling parent? A teacher? A CCE teacher? If you answered yes to any of these questions, take a look at American Life League’s Culture of Life Studies Program.

The Culture of Life Studies Program offers Catholic pro-life educational lessons from pre-K to high school. These lessons cover a wide range of topics—from one-day lessons on saints; to handprint lessons with activities for younger kids; to four-day lessons on euthanasia, the sanctity of marriage, and the preborn baby; to four-week picture book lessons about caring for and protecting others; and more!

All of our lessons are age appropriate and adhere to Catholic teaching. Many have a nihil obstat and imprimatur. These lessons are used throughout the country in Catholic schools, by homeschoolers, in religious education programs, and in youth groups.

Our lessons fit easily into any existing curriculum. You can even do them at home or on the weekend as part of teaching your children or grandchildren to love Catholicism.

And as we edge closer to the summer break, now is the perfect time to incorporate our lessons into your student’s life.


Take a look at the state of our country. The culture of death has gotten a stranglehold in politics, in schools, on social media, and on TV. Everywhere we turn, we see a rejection of morality, a disdain for faith, and adults sexualizing children or even tempting them to change their gender.

We cannot stand by and allow our religious freedoms to become suppressed. Nor can we allow our children to grow up in a world so fraught with immorality.

That’s why—now more than ever—the Culture of Life Studies Program is so relevant and so important. Our lessons teach moral courage so that your children can make a change in this world. That’s what building a culture of life is all about.

We want to familiarize you with our program, so we have chosen to highlight eight awesome lessons—for a wide range of ages—that will help you build that necessary foundation of faith in your home, school, or youth group. All are downloadable, so it’s easy to order, print them, and start learning and talking right away!

  1. The Beauty of the Developing Human Being

This is a four-class lesson for middle schoolers that explores the science of the earliest moments of a person’s life and gives students a firm foundation regarding the fact that every human being’s life must be protected from creation until death.

  1. Unconditional Love and Respect for Everyone: St. John Bosco

Middle school students will learn about the life of St. John Bosco and how he created a home and school for young boys who had nowhere to go and no one to care for them. Through stories about his lessons and his life, students will learn to reflect on potential prejudices they have toward certain people based on their appearances, behaviors, or financial status. They will be challenged to think about how their own choices can have a lasting positive impact when they treat all people with respect.

  1. St. Patrick

This one-day lesson for kids in k-4th grade shows students how to emulate this amazing saint who lived boldly for Christ. It ends with a fun craft project!

  1. Without Mercy: An Introduction to Euthanasia, Assisted Suicide, and Other Threats to the Medically Vulnerable

Using Church documents, the Catechism, and subject-matter experts, this four-class supplement for teens provides students with a basic understanding of the Catholic Church’s teachings on euthanasia and gives students the tools they need to defend those teachings against current cultural attitudes and pro-euthanasia arguments. This lesson examines the complex topics of euthanasia and assisted suicide and teaches students the reality behind what the culture of death advocates regarding end-of-life issues.

  1. All Shapes and Sizes

This 16-class lesson for kids in kindergarten and older helps students understand that every human being has value because we are all made in the image and likeness of God. Our value does not depend on our appearance, ability, or background. Students will learn about Down syndrome, autism, the beauty of the elderly, and the fact that it’s okay to be different.

  1. Marriage and Family

This four-class lesson for middle schoolers teaches students that God created marriage between one man and one woman. Through the lives of saints and saintly couples, students learn how they can stand up and defend marriage and the family in our society.

  1. St. Joseph: Pro-Life Saint, Hero, and Role Model

This one-day lesson for children third grade and older teaches about the beauty of fatherhood through the example of St. Joseph as he cared for Jesus and Mary. In this lesson, students will learn about why we honor St. Joseph, the foster father of our Lord Jesus, as the guardian of the Church. They will also learn the important role that fathers play in our lives and why we should turn to St. Joseph for his intercession.

  1. Who Was the Real Margaret Sanger?

Produced as a three-lesson unit study and video set for high school students, Who Was the Real Margaret Sanger? exposes the truth about the founder of the largest abortion provider in the United States. This lesson helps students understand the impact of the contraceptive mentality on the decriminalization of abortion, identify the connection between the eugenics movement and the Nazis, and recognize the ties between the sexual revolution and destruction of the feminine genius in society.

Our lessons help build a culture of life in your home or school so that you and your students can build a culture of life in your community. All are easy to teach at home. And all will engender beautiful discussions about culture-of-life topics. Now is the time to sit down with your children and help them understand the sanctity of all life and the importance of standing up for the vulnerable.
