Another young pro-life champion

One of the best parts of my job is to meet, encourage, and (we hope, at some level) influence young pro-life activists.  One such young pro-life champion is Peter Ascik.  We first met Peter in 2008, when we took our Pro Life on Campus project (GAP) to Appalachian State U, where Peter was an undergraduate.  Now he is in graduate school at the U of Georgia, where he serves as President of the Students for Life.

Peter and his group hosted GAP at the U of Georgia last Fall, and is currently preparing to bring the Justice for All (JFA) display this Spring.  The JFA display features CBR abortion photos.  In preparation for the display, he wrote this column in the U of Georgia student paper.  He wrote:

We understand the pictures of unborn human beings destroyed by abortion are disturbing. But a critical thinker may ask why it is so disturbing to see them.


We believe these images are so disturbing because it is inconsistent for us to speak about human rights — while we ignore the rights of the youngest and most vulnerable humans.

    Peter says:

    Fletcher, you have definitely both encouraged and influenced me. The GAP project clarified for me that we must expose the violence of abortion in an unambiguous way. It helped me see that we are called to do that by putting ourselves out there with the pictures and making ourselves available to people to talk with them about their reactions. The example given by you, Jane, Mick, and all the wonderful people you bring with you gave me the courage to do just that. And the experience made me realize I want to keep doing that for as long as it is needed.

    Fletcher- I am another young pro-lifer who has been seriously changed by the work of CBR. I have learned to defend life on all levels- emotionally, socially, biologically, philosophically, and of course spritually. Let no one make the mistake of believing that the youth of America is strictly pro-choice. We are young, we are relevant, and we are passionate about becoming the generation that ends abortion
