#1. Talk with your family and friends about abortion.

Ask the people who you’re closest to what they think about the issue and why. If they are pro-life, ask them if they’d like to brainstorm with you about ways to get involved. If they are pro-choice, explore how they come to their stance. Find common ground and emphasize shared motivations (caring for people, protecting basic rights). Talk to them about your view too. The goal of the conversation doesn’t have to be conversion or agreement. Just making sure the people closest to you know you’re pro-life is an important step.

If you’d like to get better at dialoguing about abortion, the Equal Rights Institute has many wonderful resources.
