There are all sorts of ways for groups and individuals to help Abort73 expand our reach. The lists below are a good place to start.
1. WEAR A SHIRT
Be a walking billboard for education and justice by introducing everyone in your path to Abort73. Unlike many pro-life T-shirts, Abort73 shirts substitute generic slogans for something far more useful: an introduction to Abort73.com.
2. POST A PICTURE / GRAPHIC
You can vastly increase the reach of your Abort73 shirt by posting a picture of it to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or Pinterest and tagging it @abort73. Don't have a shirt? The same graphics that adorn our tees are available in digital formats—free of charge. We also have an Abort73 graphic for every state in the U.S. Download your favorites and start posting!
3. SHARE A PAGE
Every page on the Abort73 website can be easily shared across a host of social networks. The same is true for the Abort73 blog. Look for the social icons below the page title to post to Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or Pinterest.
4. LEAVE A CARD
Abort73 promo cards are low-cost, high-impact marketing tools that fit easily into your purse or wallet and can be handed out or strategically left behind.
5. DRIVE A STICKER
Like an Abort73 shirt for your car, these stickers don't try and deliver the message themselves (something they're ill-equipped to do). Instead, they point people to a place where they actually can be educated about abortion: Abort73.com. They also work great on notebooks, laptops and guitar cases.
6. SHARE THE WEALTH
The free abortion-education offered by Abort73 is made possible by the financial support of monthly donors—families and individuals who put their money where their mouth is month after month. By joining their number, you help ensure that the marketing and maintenance of Abort73 will continue for as long as it's needed.

5. Wear Abort73 Shirts
Even if your pastors don't preach in T-shirts, there are still plenty of other opportunities to wear Abort73 shirts at other church events. And most college and high school pastors do teach their midweek studies in T-shirts.

A great way to introduce your high school and college students to Abort73 is by handing out Abort73 promo cards or pens. The promo cards are a creative, low-cost way to put the Abort73 URL in their hands, and the pens provide the same thing with a bit more long-term utility.
8. Put up an Abort73 poster in your youth room
One simple way to help maintain a sustained focus on the injustice of abortion is to put an Abort73 poster in your student ministry offices or meeting rooms.
9. Preach on abortion each year and reference Abort73
As John Piper says, "The law of our land is immoral and unjust. That should be declared from tens of thousands of pulpits…" If you're not already doing so, preach against abortion at least once a year and point your people to Abort73 as a helpful tool for education and activation. Also consider making an Abort73 video part of your message.
10. Add Abort73 flyers or promo cards to your bulletins on Sanctity of Human Life Sunday
Abort73 promo cards and flyers are great, low-cost additions to church bulletins. If you don't do bulletins, hand them out at the door or place them on the seats ahead of service. Sanctity of Human Life Sunday comes every January, and whether you're preaching on abortion that Sunday or not, consider marking the day with Abort73 inserts.

While it's relatively easy to raise money for more press-friendly, social-justice issues like AIDS or poverty relief, abortion continues to destroy thousands of children a day in America and more than 100,000 a day around the globe. Though the world is unlikely to applaud your opposition to abortion, Francis Schaeffer once remarked that if Christians will not stand up and say of baby-killing, "This is wrong!", then the world has the right to ask if Christ is even real.
