Why is PPCFL Active in the Public Arena?
The fundamental position of the pro-life movement is that human life is special and must be defended from conception/fertilization to natural death. Spreading this pro-life message in the Pikes Peak region is the main objective of Pikes Peak Citizens for Life, and the public arena is the most important venue in which to communicate this culture of life.
Since we are all active in some way or another in the public arena, PPCFL hopes to equip all pro-lifers with the information and other tools necessary to promote the pro-life message in whatever part of the public arena we find ourselves in.
Many of these tools already exist as either local, state, national or international resources. PPCFL builds on these existing resources with additional resources we put together ourselves. Our intent with this website and our other efforts is to provide you with a quick and easy way to make yourself knowledgeable about life issues so that you can take the life message to others.
So, if you find that we are missing something you know might be helpful, contact us to let us know!
We will constantly be compiling more comprehensive information which we will provide directly or through links to other resources. This whole undertaking will be continually refined as we better learn how to communicate the essential aspects of the continuously evolving pro-life effort to move our culture away from death and towards life.
