There is so much good information available within the pro-life movement from videos, presentations, social media posts, and of course books! We’ve compiled a list of six titles that we think will benefit any pro-life advocate. These books contain stories, information and resources to build your knowledge and inspire your faith as you seek to come alongside and support anyone who has been affected by abortion. Here are six of the best pro-life books for your bookshelf!
Unplanned Grace by Natasha Smith and Brittany Smith
Written by Save the Storks, this wonderful book combines amazing stories of brave mothers who chose life with detailed descriptions of resources and ministries available to support them. It highlights many other pro-life organizations who are working tirelessly to make abortion unnecessary. If you’d like to know more about the comprehensive dynamics of the pro-life movement, this book is for you.
Longing for Motherhood by Chelsea Patterson Sobolik
Chelsea was born with a rare condition that left her unable to have biological children. In the pages of her book, Chelsea shares her journey of grief and encourages other women who may be experiencing something similar to find their hope in the Lord. This God-given longing in the heart of women to conceive and bear children, and the grief that comes from childlessness, is an important perspective to understand within the pro-life movement and is why we consider it one of the best pro-life books out there.
Unplanned by Abby Johnson
This book eloquently captures the inspiring story of Abby Johnson and her dramatic conversion from abortion clinic director to one of the most well-known pro-life voices today. Written just months after Abby’s resignation from Planned Parenthood, the story is honest, raw and gripping, and what inspired the 2018 film of the same name. Whether you’ve seen the film or not, it’s one of the best pro-life books worth reading.
Help Her Be Brave by Amy Ford
Amy Ford’s dream is to build up the church to be the solution to abortion. Her ministry, Embrace Grace, helps churches create support groups for women who find themselves in unplanned pregnancies. Help Her Be Brave is a springboard for the average Christian to find their place in the pro-life movement, no matter how big or small their involvement may be. Filled with inspiring stories from Amy’s ministry and pages of practical ideas for how to reach out to women, every Christian will be encouraged by this title and excited to step out and help women be brave.
Love Unleashes Life by Stephanie Gray
Any pro-life advocate has probably found themselves in an unpleasant, uncivil conversation about abortion. Or been too nervous to even broach the subject. Love Unleashes Life is a quick read and one of the best pro-life books around. It seeks to bolster you with confidence by showing how a civil conversation about such a difficult subject can look. You’ll be equipped on how to communicate well, listen intently, and apply pro-life arguments successfully.
The Walls are Talking by Abby Johnson
The Walls Are Talking is another difficult but necessary read from Abby Johnson. She and several other former abortion clinic workers chronicle the stories of what they experienced within their clinics’ walls. It’s a tell-all on what kept them working in such a dark place. This book offers a valuable perspective within the pro-life movement. It will challenge you to extend grace and compassion to those we may deem “the enemy.”
We hope this list of the six best pro-life books equips you to become a PRO at pro-life!
