Step 2: Review Important Principles

After watching the video, give teens a chance to comment or ask questions.  Go over the following together.

Could it be that when we said that we would no longer sit in the back of the bus, a place was being reserved for us down at the abortion clinic?

- MLK’s Niece Alveda King 

Step 3: Practice the Role-Play

Scenario #1: Racism Roundup 

It’s lunchtime and someone near you mentions a recent rally where there were apparently actual KKK members participating. “I thought that group disbanded years ago,” comments a peer nearest you. He continues, “Their history is so tainted—killing people just because they were Black and talking about the ‘white race’ being supreme.

I didn’t realize there were still people who thought that way.”

“We don’t want to think of people just in terms of categories: black, white, Hispanic, gay, bi, trans, or whatever else. We want to think of people as persons.”

-Rev. Paul Scalia

Best Practice:

St. Teresa of Calcutta

A Prayer of St. Teresa of Calcutta (1910 - 1997 AD)

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered; Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; Build anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough; Give the world the best you've got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God; It was never between you and them anyway.

For those suffering in the aftermath of abortion: Project Rachel https://hopeafterabortion.com

Project Rachel is a diocesan-based network of specially trained priests, religious, counselors, and laypersons who provide a team response of care for those suffering in the aftermath of abortion. In addition to referring for Sacramental Reconciliation, the ministry provides an integrated network of services, including pastoral counseling, support groups, retreats and referrals to licensed mental health professionals.

It's normal to grieve a pregnancy loss, including the loss of a child by abortion. It can form a hole in one's heart, a hole so deep that sometimes it seems nothing can fill the emptiness. Be assured that there is forgiveness, hope and healing – many women and men have participated in diocesan Project Rachel Ministries and returned to a loving relationship with God.
