Members of Cambridge University Pro-Life Society are recording their progress as
they commence using a Created4Life Display Table in the City Centre. Here is the
second update from the team.
“Despite heavy rain and cold weather we went out this weekend, strategically placing
our table under a concrete awning to keep dry. We didn't get quite as much interest
in the table as when the Created4Life team were with us - this may have been due
to the rain or the fact that we're still learning how to engage with people passing
Nonetheless, we had several encouraging conversations, one with a large group of
young teenage boys; we believe that they at least went away with a new consideration
of the fact that a pregnancy affects men as well as women, and hopefully our models
gave them a basis to continue talking about it amongst themselves after they left.
We talked to a woman from London who seemed interested in setting up a Created4Life
Display Table of her own. We also spoke with an excited father to be and his group
of friends, and gave out two foetal models to some interested children. Honestly,
pretty much all the children who walk past the table stare at the plastic babies
(I'm pretty sure they think we're playing with really little dolls), while their
parents deliberately avoid eye contact and pull their children away.
that many people feel very resentful about what were doing and that any previous
experience with abortion makes just seeing our development models even more repugnant
to them. It can be difficult emotionally to see this sort of reaction, as it is a
reminder not only of the millions of lives brutally taken just after their conception,
but also of the terrible weight of guilt and pain carried by those who have participated
in abortion. These will be the people most difficult to reach, but just reaching
a few individuals is a start, and perhaps the greatest impact will be on the next
generation of parents. One student said "I haven't really thought much about it,
but at least now I'm informed." It's a beginning.”
