"How to be a Pro-Life Champion!"
Dr. Pat Castle
Dr. Pat Castle inspires and motivates us to be Pro-Life champions! To be champions, we must be trained and equipped to win. He'll equip us with the reality of abortion by the numbers and then deliver the information with experiences and strategies on how to be a Pro-Life champion at home, church, school, work, neighborhood, and abortion facility. To reach abortion-determined mothers going in an abortion facility, Dr. Pat has a winning strategy for where we should stand and what we should say based on his applied research. Everyone wants to be on the winning team. Life is the winning team. Dr. Pat shows us how to look like, sound like and be Pro-Life champions!
