You Can Stop Injustice - highlights "the greatest social injustice of all time". Through personal stories, hard facts, and shocking statistics, You Can Stop Injustice encourages young people to take action, giving the child in the womb the rights and opportunities all people deserve as human beings in a just society. It is an eye-catching, engaging publication designed to appeal particularly to college students. While offering students a pro-life understanding of abortion and its consequences, it also asks them to consider these issues from a new perspective - social justice.
