GAP is preparing to go to Liberty University this year, and CBR director Fletcher Armstrong calls this "the most important campus visit we've ever done." That's despite Liberty's reputation as a Religious Right training ground. Armstrong explains in a recent fundraising email:
The sad fact is that 18% of all abortions are performed on women who are "born again" or "evangelical" Christians. According to the most recent data, about 15% of evangelical or born again Christian women will have at least one abortion during their childbearing years. Born again and evangelical men are just as involved.Secular Pro-Life is quick to point out that not all pro-lifers are Christian. (Ironically enough, we've shared that message at Liberty University!) But we need to remember that the opposite is also true: not all Christians are pro-life. And among those who are pro-life, many are apathetic. Still others genuinely care, but are poorly educated about the best arguments against abortion in a religiously pluralistic society. GAP will help Liberty students place the right-to-life cause in its historical context, and teach them to continue the fight for social justice.
