  4. What do you think are the best methods for a local 40 Days for Life campaign?
  5. What could RLCC do better to persuade people to participate in sidewalk counseling?
  6. What has been the pro-life movements greatest victory so far?
  7. What has been the pro-life movements greatest weakness?
  8. What single thing should pro-lifers be doing that most are not doing right now?
  9. How should pro-life people interact with those that are pro-abortion-choice?
