There are a lot of people who believe strongly that life is precious, and life begins at conception, therefore their value / belief system is broadly defined as pro-life.  I invite anyone who is against abortion, and is pro-life to do more than just “believe strongly.”  Do more than just vote for candidates who profess those views.  Here are some things you can do:

Adopt or foster a child.

Take in a runaway.  Take in a teen mom and give her and her child a room.

Support programs that support young mothers and their babies.

Give or volunteer at a shelter.  Start your own shelter.

Provide birth control and contraceptives to people who need it, even if they don’t believe the same as you.

Educate people on their sexual health and choices. Abstinence-only programs don’t work.

Give a job to a teen mother.  Women are statistically more likely to abort their second pregnancy.  Lighten that burden.  Support them as parents and as people.  Babysit for them. Help them graduate high school, and college.  Bring them into your community and family, give them a sense that they belong.

Don’t just vote, and don’t just keep your beliefs to yourself.  Do something more.
