I have been impressed by Life's new campaign: Finding Hope. The animation by Mel Skellon (@melskellon on Twitter) and Scribbled Cloud (@scribbledcloud) is excellent: it raises important issues in a thought-provoking way.
I was keen to see the research behind some of the statistics quoted in the campaign, and that can be found here.
As well as being informative and thought-provoking, the campaign has really upset many of the pro-abortion lobby. They have spent a lot of time and energy attacking Life and the campaign, which suggests it has really got in amongst them. Their narrative doesn't allow abortion to be anything but a blessing, or Life (the organisation) to be anything but evil.
Life has posted a very calm and measured response to their very provocative, and in cases offensive, attacks, which can be read here.
This seems to me to be a very positive way forward for the pro-life movement: placing itself firmly on the side of women, demonstrating why abortion is not a good solution, and ensuring that any claims made are based on proper research.
