Join us to Save the 12,000: 

Our new series of meetings will equip you to be a renewed voice for life in Minnesota

Editor’s note. This appeared in MCCL News.

MORE THAN 12,000 unborn children died from abortion in Minnesota last year, and it’s going to get worse: Lawmakers just passed laws establishing abortion-up-to-birth, abolishing a program supporting pregnant women, and even repealing a measure guaranteeing lifesaving care for newborns.

What can we do to restore protection for the vulnerable? MCCL is launching a new “Save the 12,000” series of meetings across the state. These meetings will replace MCCL’s traditional Fall Tour—but with a new name, a bigger scope, and more urgency to confront the challenges we face!

Get equipped to save lives

At each “Save the 12,000” meeting, an MCCL speaker will update attendees about the extremism of Minnesota’s current laws. We’ll also provide pro-lifers with the tools and techniques they need to have confident and effective conversations that persuade others. And we’ll lay out practical steps everyone can take that will save lives starting right now. It’s never been more important for pro-lifers to engage in this crucial work.

“Save the 12,000” meetings have already begun, and many more are planned. Some are listed in the box below; find an up-to-date list on our website at We expect to hold more meetings this year than ever before.

Promote your meeting

If a meeting has not yet been scheduled in your area and you are able to help facilitate one, please contact the MCCL office at 612-825-6831 or You can also play a role in promoting the meeting near you. MCCL has promotional posters as well as sample bulletin announcements for churches; simply contact MCCL to receive them.

Whether or not you help facilitate, please make a point of coming to the meeting near you and bringing others. All are welcome to these free events: Bring family, friends, and church and school groups. Each meeting will last a little over an hour. Attendees will receive a packet of helpful printed materials that will enable them to immediately put to use all the training they receive.

We look forward to seeing you there!
