ALL INSIDER BEHIND THE SCENES AT AMERICAN LIFE LEAGUE Are there pro-life lessons in English literature? You bet! By Laura Kizior, curriculum developer for ALL’s Culture of Life Studies Program WHEN WE TALK about Dream of the Rood, we often see customers turn away, dreading the thought of teaching Medieval English literature. This past summer, one homeschool co-op teacher approached our conference table with trepidation, thinking that none of our materials would fit into her high school English class this fall. I showed her Dream of the Rood, explaining that the students first learn about the Medieval understanding of heroes and then apply what they’ve learned to modern-day pro-life heroes. When the teacher realized that we organized the lesson, she became very excited. She later wrote to us to express how excited she was to start teaching this fall. Part of the fun we have at conferences is watching the growing excitement of teachers when they discover how they can teach the culture of life in every class and at every grade level. Joy from unexpected places By an ALL staff member WORKING AT American Life League is a constant struggle to protect the lives of every human being, from creation to death. We are encouraged when we see the victories brought about by our work: hundreds of abortion facilities closed for good; mothers who tell us they chose life for their preborn child after viewing our Baby Steps DVD; and the list goes on and on. Yet, every day, the culture of death devises another way to kill God’s children. Some days, the demands on our funds are overwhelming and we wonder how we will get the resources to go on. We had such a day recently. Then, after our morning prayer, we began opening the mail. It was Tuesday, the worst day of the week for donations. Among the short stack of envelopes, there was one from a lawyer. We opened it and there was an estate check for $33,000! We will save more lives today! You cannot imagine how uplifting it is to know our supporters remember us—even from beyond the grave. Praise God! A God-given moment By Jim Sedlak, ALL’s executive director and founder of STOPP A FEW YEARS ago, two people from our STOPP effort were at a hotel where an annual Planned Parenthood convention was to begin the next day. That night, they found a crew in a ballroom building a stage for PP’s use. Much of the stage was finished and there were already PP logos and signs in place. Our people walked on the stage and began taking pictures of themselves behind the podium. Even now, those pictures remind us that Planned Parenthood is not invincible. After all, they couldn’t even keep us off their stage. One day, we’ll stand on a similar stage and announce the demise of that oncedominant organization. God will not lose.
