This is a similar question on the topic of how to win the war against abortion to May 5′s, which analyzed the article, “Time to change pro-life tactics?”
Today we look at a May 25 post by pro-life blogger Jennie Stone, published at LifeNews.com, entitled, “Hey Pro-lifers: Six things NOT to do to end abortion.” Your thoughts? Read on…
Using inflammatory language.
… Calling an abortion clinic an “abortuary” or a “murder mill” isn’t going to exactly entice a pro-choice advocate to listen to you when you want to discuss the reality of abortion. Even worse, calling them “pro-death” or “anti-life” will be taken as a personal threat and will shut them away from you completely.

Fighting amongst ourselves.
Infighting among fellow pro-lifers is sometimes caused by differences in political opinion, but more often it is caused by differences of religious beliefs.

Condemning post-abortive women.
Post-abortive women have some of the most powerful testimonies in favor of life that we could ever imagine…. Post-abortive women are human beings, and they need to be treated like it. Their testimonies can save other women from a lifetime of regret and can save babies’ lives.
