Here’s another list, gathering up Lutheran Pro-Life Resources for you and your family.
Teaching for Life – Sunday School/Preschool offers a positive set of nine lessons with reproducible graphics to help teach pro-life concepts. Although it is geared toward a class setting, for $10, it is affordable for Lutheran homeschoolers also.
(Arranged in order of younger to older)
