I read an article recently about purchasing and carrying pro-life “drop cards” to leave around and spread the pro-life message. I have to say that I liked the idea, but I haven’t liked any of the cards I have seen. A lot of them are great for starting a debate and ruffling pro-choice feathers, but as I looked at them, I kept thinking that many of them are useless for a pregnant woman in need that wants help. Some of them could be considered very uncharitable to women that come across them while in the middle of an unplanned pregnancy. The very people we want to reach the most are not served by most of the card designs I have seen online. Therefore, I made my own! Vistaprint has very inexpensive options for designing business cards. I put information about local pregnancy resources on the card and they are in the mail to come to me soon!
I urge everyone to consider making some pro-life “drop cards” that not only spread a loving pro-life message, but also tell people where to go for help if they are in need of it themselves. If more of us can leave not only the pro-life message, but RESOURCES around in our communities I think we can really change hearts and lives for the better. The cards can be left anywhere you think someone may happen upon them and need one. Think of leaving one on a shelf near the pregnancy tests in the drugstore, in a magazine rack, etc. You can always just have some with you in case you come across a woman that needs help. I remember back in high school that I walked into a bathroom while a girl and her friend were waiting to see the results of her pregnancy test. I wish I had known then what I know now. If only I had a card or a website I could have shared with her!
