JFA training specialists Catherine Wurts and Rebecca Haschke participated in the March for Life JFA-style: they turned it into an opportunity to teach pro-life advocates to dialogue! They began by marching along with 220 high school students and 43 chaperones from the Catholic Diocese of Lincoln, Nebraska. Then in a two-hour workshop the next day, they equipped all 263 to change hearts and minds on abortion.
One of the students wrote Rebecca just this week (about one month later):
Today me and three of my friends were waiting in a lobby to do interviews for Girls State. There was also a girl from [another high school] that was waiting along with us and somehow we got on the topic of abortion and she was pro-choice. It was the perfect first encounter and chance to use the skills you taught us. She was very good about hearing our side, and we were good about hearing hers. She [gave] the exact reason most [give]: ” Just a clump of cells.” We were able to ask questions and stay on the same page with her without overwhelming her, thanks to you and your presentation!
