National Pro-Life T-Shirt Week

The person who first put a logo on a t-shirt was a marketing genius. Almost everybody wears t-shirts, and we’ve become willing, walking billboards for our favorite teams and bands, special events (and their sponsors) and an endless list of causes and brands.

National Pro-Life T-Shirt Week (NPLTW) taps into that phenomenon to spread the pro-life message. This year, thousands of kids, teens and adults will stand up (and dress up) for the right to life by wearing pro-life tees from April 28 through May 4. This year’s official NPLTW designs let pro-lifers proudly identify themselves as a “Life Defender” or remind all who see them that a baby is a “Person Inside and Out” of the womb, but any pro-life tee can make a statement that week. Wear yours!

How powerful can a simple t-shirt be? In October 2014, The Learning Channel felt it necessary to blur the pro-life tee worn by a member of the Duggar family on the popular TV show, 19 and Counting. The censored message? I survived Roe vs. Wade. Roe vs. Wade will not survive me. As NPLTW says, “Truth begins with a T.”
