There’s A Pro-Life Pumpkin Carving Contest For All Of You Who Are Handy With Knives

30be15ef3b7215e1118f3df3e4ab2f7cI know some of your readers are very pro-life, and I respect that, even though I don’t agree with you. I have made my feelings about abortion very clear on Mommyish, so I won’t get into that again, because no one wants a lecture about my own personal pro-choice beliefs when there are more important things to discuss, like the upcoming Halloween season. And what could be more festive than celebrating Halloween than scooping the guts out of a pumpkin and carving a pro-life message into it and shoving a candle inside and proudly displaying it for all the children who come knocking for candy? Nothing I say!  This contest ran last Halloween and I’m assuming it will run again considering the link is still active on the website. I’m just giving you all advance notice so you can start honing your carving skillz. From American life league org:


“This is such a fun and exciting way to share with kids the importance of upholding the dignity of a human being and the gift of life itself,” said Judie Brown. “Every human being who steps on your porch this October 31 will get a lot more than a handful of candy and chocolates. They’ll also be getting a message on how special every single life is from creation to death.”

It all began with Michael Hichborn—American Life League’s ALL Report host and Defend the Faith director—sharing his family’s yearly Halloween tradition of carved pumpkins featuring pro-life themed silhouettes. Mike and his wife, Alyssa, have used the yearly Halloween tradition to talk to their kids about standing up for preborn babies and the precious gift of human life.


Here are the two stencils that have been offered in previous years.



The contest information also says:

It also spooked the pro-abortion cartel, which made our day.


I don’t know about you guys, but I’m terrified. I’m not going to post the image of last year’s winner, but you can view it here.

And this was just tweeted at me from my pal Kelly, and it was TOO GOOD not to share:
