“An amazing day!”

James Tranter, Life Matters® Officer for Link One, recently had the pleasure of recently delivering four talks on the topic of Abortion to a school that had never had a Life Speaker in before. Here’s his report:

I spoke to pupils in Years 9, 10 and 11 (13-16 years old). The teacher let me know afterwards that the talk was very useful and very appropriate, and that they especially liked the “facts and sensitivity” of the talk. Here is their closing comment on the evaluation form! –

An amazing day! So informative and interesting. We’d love to have you back to visit all of our students in their R.S. [Religious Studies] lessons.

    I'd be interested in knowing more - what issues you addressed, anything special you used to engage their interest, any good questions from the audience and so on.

      Hi J Howard and David, the Abortion talk is essentially a prolife 101. We define prolife and pro-choice before looking at a case study of a woman we helped. Then we delve into abortion statistics, how abortion can affect women and men, and detail our support services. We have a slot in the talk to go through fetal development, using 4D ultrasound images and fetal models to engage their interest. (You can see a picture of the models here: https://mid-southlcms.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/babies.jpg). Then we round off by looking at abortion in case of rape and disability. They had some great questions - a standout one for me was being asked how pregnant women in prisons are cared for! The teacher was delighted with our service and said the talk really held the pupils' attention.
