Are you looking for ways to help your kids or teens understand the value of a human life? Get kid- and teen-friendly declarations.

Are you looking for ways to help your children or teens better understand the value of a human life? First consider endorsing the Declaration for Life to model what you believe. Then read what you stand for to your children, using “A Pro-Life Declaration for Kids,” which is written with kid-friendly words, or have your teens read a teen-friendly declaration called “A Pro-Life Declaration for Teens.

For further engagement, print each declaration, which the whole family can sign. Hang these sheets in a prominent area in your home. Then continue the conversation with our free toolkit of family activities for Valuing Life From the Start. Below is also “A Pro-Life Declaration for Kids.”

A Pro-Life Declaration for Kids

For almost 50 years, abortion has been legal in the United States. During that time, approximately 60 million preborn babies have not been given the chance for life. Recently, some states have made changes to their laws that will allow babies to be aborted just before they are born. In light of these tragic decisions, it’s important to remember what we, as Christians, believe.

We believe that . . .

Babies inside their mothers are people created by God. Just like the rest of us, their lives are sacred and valuable.

The American government is built on the Declaration of Independence, which says everyone has the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” We believe that right extends to preborn babies.

Life in the womb is “fearfully and wonderfully made.” Every person has unique DNA even before they are born. Scripture and science both agree on this.

Abortion is wrong, and we need to stand against it.

What can we do?

Our families can encourage lawmakers to make decisions to protect life. We can encourage families to adopt children. And we can pray for everyone involved.

We can celebrate life as a family by developing relationships with those who may be different and learning about disabilities. Then we can discover what we all have in common and how God has a plan and purpose for everyone.

We can support our local pregnancy center by helping with fundraising, making baby blankets, dropping off diapers or anything that it needs.

As Christians, it is our responsibility to stand up for people who can’t speak for themselves — and that includes babies. If we work together, we can make a difference.
