How to Make Your Halloween Pro-Life
By Emily Brown
Do you love carving pumpkins? When you’re carving pumpkins this year, we challenge you to carve a pro-life message on one of your jack-o’-lanterns. That’s right, make your jack-o’-lantern pro-life!
When people come to your door for some candy on October 31, they will also see a beautiful message affirming the dignity of preborn babies. You just never know whose life you may impact by leaving that message on your front porch. A little child may see it, a pregnant mother too scared to tell anyone about her pregnancy may see it, or a new father may see the image. Sometimes all it takes to make an impact is one small gesture.
When you carve your image, send ALL a picture to show off your handiwork! American Life League will soon begin its 2016 Pro-Life Pumpkin Carving Contest. Simply submit a photo of your pumpkin by October 31 for a chance to win a FREE pro-life T-shirt.
We know not everyone is skilled at drawing, so we offer help via free stencils you can use. But don’t let these stencils hold you back; feel free to be as creative as possible. We want to see the very best pro-life pumpkins this year!
