New book brings pro-life movement alive for children

A new children’s book has been launched which educates children about the value of every human life, in and out of the womb, planned or unplanned.

Pro-Life Kids is a rhyming picture book and helpful resource which can be used by anyone looking to share an age-appropriate pro-life worldview to children.

This concept is conveyed clearly by author Bethany Bomberger and illustrated beautifully by Ed Koehler, including children of all races and abilities.

The 52-page book, created primarily for children aged 4-10, does contain references to some potentially upsetting situations when some humans have not been recognised as persons, like the Holocaust and slavery.

An excerpt from the book explains those times and the underlying beliefs that led to the killing and mistreatment of people.

“Throughout history, many believed a lie,” the book reads, as it shows an illustration of a slave owner whipping black slaves.

“You are not a person,” says the next page as it shows an illustration of a Nazi officer pointing at Jews in a concentration camp.

“Today many think the lie is still true — that babies in wombs aren’t people too,” Bomberger follows on the next page. “Abortion is when some people say it’s okay to take that baby’s precious life away.”

The response to the book, which has already sold out and is on its second print run, has been positive, with endorsements from leading pro-life campaigners.

Dr Alveda King, the niece of Martin Luther King Jr, said: “You’ll love this book; it’s creative, courageous and compassionate as it encourages young children to see the equal value of every human life, in and out of the womb.”

Abby Johnson, former abortion clinic director at Planned Parenthood, says: “If we are serious about ending abortion and making it unthinkable, then we must start by educating our children about the sanctity of human life at an early age… Our kids need to know that life is beautiful, abortion is unacceptable, and that they have a powerful voice in our society. This book will help you and them find their voice.”

Pro-Life Kids is available direct from the book’s website and Amazon.

A spokesperson for Right To Life UK said:

“Society relentlessly targets our children with pro-abortion propaganda which de-values the worth of human life and hides the reality of abortion.

“Every life, whether planned or unplanned, born or unborn, is unique and unrepeatable. It’s great to see a pro-life book that brings the pro-life movement alive for children.”

Dear reader

In 2020, the UK Government imposed an extreme abortion regime on Northern Ireland, which included a provision that legalised abortion right up to birth for disabilties including Down’s syndrome, cleft lip and club foot.

A new Bill has been launched at the Northern Ireland assembly that will remove the current provision that allows abortion for ‘severe fetal impairment’.

It is under these grounds in the regulations that babies with disabilities including Down’s syndrome, cleft lip and club foot can currently be singled out for abortion in Northern Ireland because of their disability and can be aborted right up to birth.

Before the new abortion regime was imposed on Northern Ireland in 2020, disability-selective abortion for conditions such as Down’s syndrome, cleft lip and club foot was not legal and there was a culture of welcoming and supporting people with these disabilities rather than eliminating them.

This is reflected directly in the latest figures (2016) from the Department of Health in Northern Ireland, which show that while there were 52 children born with Down’s syndrome in Northern Ireland, in the same year only 1 child from Northern Ireland with Down’s syndrome was aborted in England and Wales. 

This contrasts with the situation in the rest of the United Kingdom where disability-selective abortion has been legal since 1967.

The latest available figures show that 90% of children diagnosed with Down’s syndrome before birth are aborted in England and Wales.

We are, therefore, asking people like you to take 30 seconds of your time and add your support to the campaign to stop abortion up to birth for disabilities including Down’s syndrome, cleft lip and club foot in Northern Ireland.

If you live in Northern Ireland: 
Ask your MLAs to vote to stop abortion up to birth for disabilities including Down’s syndrome, cleft lip and club foot:

If you live outside Northern Ireland: 
Show your support by signing this petition in support of the Bill:
