How can pro-lifers influence the culture

I was browsing the internet when I came upon this French conference on the embryo held in 2004.

A series of talks were given on the history of the embryo and the fetus.

Now, understand that these presenters were not all pro-life. In fact, I don't know if any of them were pro-life.

But this kind of conference gives a fetuses and embryos a history and identity of their own. It gives a place to them in our culture and makes fetal rights more acceptable.

Note, this wasn't an anti-abortion event, and it doesn't have to be. It only has to be focused on the unborn child.

Now, you may say to yourself that one lone conference will not change things. And you're right. The point is not the medium that was used. The point is that an opportunity presented itself to introduce the unborn child into the consciousness of influential people-- people who write and who speak to large numbers of people (namely students) who themselves influence others.

This is one conference in one particular field-- history. But that's how we should be thinking. Promote the unborn child in every sphere of learning and activity.
