What The Heck Is A Love Protest?

What exactly is a love protest? 

We all know the basics of protesting:

A company or government agency is doing something we don't agree with.

We stand outside of their headquarters with bullhorns and signs, highlighting how they've failed to do business in an ethical way. 

Company or agency answers by amending their behavior or clarifying their stance. 

The basics of a love protest:

The "company" we are protesting is a world where vulnerable families are left unsupported when facing an unexpected pregnancy, and when raising children with limited financial means.

Instead of using bullhorns and signs to make our point, we use hot meals and offers of close friendship.

Hopefully, the world will stop being a hostile place for families in crisis through our actions.

Most pro-choice editorials claim that pro-lifers are only interested in babies when they are in the womb. I am dead-set on proving them wrong. I want you to help.

I started a Pledge drive. But I don't want your money. I want 1000 hours dedicated to making someone's life better.

So, what do you need to do:

Sign the Pledge and go do your good deed. 

After that, write a couple of paragraphs about what you did and send it to me at sarah @ shebringsjoy (dot) com, with some clear, beautiful photos. I'll share your story with a bunch of people who may share it with their friends.... And you may be part of a seismic change. When people see you committing random acts of loving kindness, they may be more inclined to help themselves.

Because I am going to share the heck out of your love protest at every turn and through every platform. People will no longer be able to claim that pro-lifers only care about babies in the womb. 

We'll show them that we care about mothers and fathers, babies, toddlers, and school aged kids. We care about them all, because that's what being pro-life is all about.
