On July 23 the League hosted a Pro-Life Basic Training course in our offices, directed by former Green Beret and veteran pro-life activist Brian Clowes of Human Life International. Clowes traveled to Chicago with his wife Cathy expressly to run the course, which is usually conducted over the course of two days.
The two dozen pro-lifers in attendance found the course rewarding and inspiring, if challenging in its accelerated version. Clowes covered everything from how to identify and make the best use of one’s individual gifts in the pro-life effort, to understanding the mind-set of the pro-abortion side.
Clowes noted that he will no longer be conducting the Basic Training course because it is now available on CD, allowing students to absorb the wealth of material at their own pace. He demonstrated the CD course and gave away a few trial copies.
