Abortion Myths

The abortion industry has infested the culture using convincing rhetoric in order to advance the culture of death. The good news is, we’re also experts in rhetoric and we have the tools to defeat their deceit and declare the truth. Discover the truth by checking out these resources from some of our friends in the Pro-Life Movement.

Pro-Life Apologetics

Many pro-life Americans find themselves wrestling with the idea of accepting abortion in cases of rape, incest, or if the life of the mother is in danger. Abortion advocates have used this vulnerability to pass pro-abortion legislation which has only compounded the culture of death and led to an even greater loss of life.

In Vitae’s very first research study, we learned that arguing the legality of abortion will be opposed by all pro-choice and some Pro-Life supporters. The way to change the culture is to influence the heart to that point that abortion is unthinkable.

Abortion Pill Information

In 2022, Vitae Foundation conducted a research study specific to abortion pills (also known as chemical abortion, medication abortion or RU-486) where we discovered that many women who had taken abortion pills were not provided informed consent and were left to deal with the physical, mental, and spiritual trauma alone.

We must spread truth in our culture in order to protect women and the most vulnerable members of our society, preborn babies, from the firm grip of the abortion industry which will sacrifice their lives for profit.

Abortion Pill Reversal Information

Vitae Foundation collaborated with Heartbeat International to conduct a research study exploring why women choose Abortion Pill Reversal. In a previous research study about the abortion pill, we learned that many women were uncomfortable with the abortion pill reversal regimen for fear that it would cause their child to have birth defects (which is not true).

Bible Studies

Courageously Pro-Life Bible Study
Equipping Believers to Transform our World. This material is designed with the pro-life church in mind. This curriculum takes adult believers (it can also be used for teens) in a Sunday school, small group, or Bible study on a 12-week journey through:

    • The Biblical basis of the sanctity of human life
    • The history of and current state of abortion
    • Eugenics’ impact on our culture today
    • The rising threat of euthanasia
    • Apologetics
    • Teaching the next generation
    • Discussing the tough cases
    • Personal and community responsibility.

This study provides easy-to-teach material that will allow your congregation/parish to grapple with tough topics using Biblical foundations and well-researched historical information. Each lesson begins with Scripture and ends with prayer, and each week will challenge your congregation/parish to become more courageously pro-life.
