“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you.”
"Virginia Evers, a pro-life activist participated in the first annual March for Life in San Diego, CA. Seeing the picture the tiny feet of a ten week old unborn baby in the San Diego Union overwhelmed her and forever changed her life. By 1978 the impression of the tiny feet of the ten-week-old unborn baby germinated into a pro-life symbol. Virginia designed a lapel pin the exact size and shape of an unborn baby’s feet at ten weeks after conception. In 1979 the Precious Feet were designated as the "International Pro-Life Symbol" at a world-wide symposium in Dublin, Ireland. Over 12 million Precious Feet have been distributed in thirty countries and six continents."

Consider keeping a supply of these lapel pins in your church. These powerfully understated pins can be worn and given out by Christians in a silent, yet clear, stand for life.
