Columbus, OH – July 2, 2019 – “I talked to 10 people who changed their minds about abortion after answering two simple questions. What is the preborn? And is it ever okay to intentionally kill an innocent human being?” This was reported by Lexie, a member of Created Equal’s summer intern team. Since the beginning of the summer, our team of interns have been on the streets shaping culture—moving people to respect the rights of preborn people. Sometime our team returns with exciting numbers of minds changed, as did Lexie. Other times, they bring back footage of shocking interactions.

Since the beginning of 2019, 702 individuals have changed their mind on the spot while talking with our team. What makes the difference? Images of the victims paired with our team members creating respectful dialogue.
Throughout the summer, our interns will lead outreach in a variety of contexts—from college campuses to downtown squares. One of our most powerful efforts is reaching out to high school students. Explaining why this is, Esther, another member of our summer intern team, recently commented, “Upon seeing the victims of abortion, most of the students are horrified. Many of them have not spent any time thinking about abortion but they almost instinctively know that this is wrong.”
Esther illustrated with a recent story:
Two students stopped to talk to me the other day. One of the boys was looking at the image in shock. I asked him what he thought, and he responded that he had no idea what abortion was actually doing. He sheepishly mumbled that he did not realize what happened to the babies, that he thought they just kind of disappeared. I was able to talk to these two boys for a little while, and it was fascinating to see this realization come across their faces.
Our team is changing lives every day.
Created Equal is a social action movement consisting of young activists seeking to end the greatest human rights injustice of our time. Killing preborn babies is nothing less than age-based discrimination of the worst kind. Our goal is to restore the true meaning of equality to include equal protection between the born and the preborn. We will continue this work until the day abortion is abolished, but we need your help. Please consider donating to this mission.
