Indianapolis, IN (LifeNews.com) — A pro-life group has launched a new social networking web site for teenagers and young adults called Teens for Life. The outreach of Indiana Right to Life is adding the web site to its already-popular quarterly pro-life publication for teens and its concert series that has reached thousands.
The new Teens for Life web site, teensforlife.com, bills itself as the world’s first social networking site dedicated to raising up a new generation of pro-life teens.
The site features an in-depth networking experience for teens that allows them to discuss core issues, exchange ideas, share multimedia, and just hang out with peers online.
"This is the first time that the pro-life movement has actively embraced the power of social networking for the purpose of raising up a new generation of leaders," says TeensforLife.com editor Mike Fichter.
"Our goal is to educate, motivate, and activate a new generation to impact its culture by advancing positive and healthy alternatives to abortion," he tells LifeNews.com.
TeensforLife.com offers visitors a wide range of ever-changing resources to supplement its social networking abilities, including information on crisis pregnancy assistance, how to avoid teen pregnancy by building healthy relationships, milestones in fetal development, and even book and music reviews.
A special SpeakOut section gives teens the opportunity to give their feedback on the hottest topics of the day, while an RSS news feed keeps visitors up-to-date on what’s happening in life issues around the world.
"The future of the pro-life movement is here, and we’re giving it a voice of its own," says Fichter.
The group will be undertaking an advertising blitz in the coming weeks and months to attract new members and will be featured at events such as Christian concerts and festivals.
