Over at Lutherans for Life’s “Teaching for Life” page, there’s a link to a pdf listing children’s books and movies and other resources on a variety of pro-life topics. The resource list was compiled by Diane Albers, a kindergarten teacher and the President of Lutherans For Life of Missouri.

I recently got the How Now Shall We Live? Devotional, by Charles Colson with Anne Morse (Tyndale House Publishers, 2004).

What would you add?
