C'mon Artists! It's National Pro-Life Chalk Day!

Moms, preschoolers, high school art clubs, professional artists, budding Michelangelos—Show your stuff! It’s National Pro-Life Chalk Day!  That means that pro-lifers across the country will be taking to the sidewalks, parks, and anywhere that has public space to create short and sweet messages that can save lives!

With a handful of chalk and an arsenal of pro-life slogans, you can leave a lasting impression on hundreds or even thousands of people, and the steps are simple.

Grab sidewalk chalk from a drug store or a younger sibling, gather your closest pro-life friends together, find a heavily-trafficked public area that you’re allowed to chalk, and go from there! Create shot pro-life messages using big letters and bright colors in spots that people can see.

This seems to me like one of the sweetest ways to present a pro-life message to your community.

You can draw a picture of—

  • an ultrasound of an unborn child
  • a newborn baby
  • Mary and newborn Baby Jesus
  • your own family with your precious newest addition

You can write a slogan—

  • We Love Babies!
  • The Smith Family Is Pro-Life!
  • Abortion Stops a Beating Heart!

Or a Scripture verse—

  • Before you were born, I knew you.
  • Fearfully and wonderfully made

What a beautifult way to commemorate the birth of the Blessed Virgin Mary! (Did you notice that today’s feast of the Birth of the Virgin Mary is exactly NINE MONTHS after the Feast of the Immaculate Conception?)

Be positive and upbeat—but by all means, go outside and express yourself! Send me a photo (send to kathyschiffer@yahoo.com), and later this week I’ll post some of my favorites.
