Abigail’s presentation has two parts. The first is fetal development facts and statistics about how abortion is affecting the US and the second part is how a person might think through the moral issue of abortion, using logic and science, and respond to someone who believes abortion to be justifiable. Abigail also provides a Fetal Development class appropriate for children in the 3rd grade.
The Fetal Development class walks children in the 3rd grade through the 40 weeks of pregnancy. Textbook drawings of children in the womb at different stages of development and fetal models paired with facts about development at those stages allow children to explore and understand the important changes happening in the womb. They are easily able to relate this new knowledge to what they’ve observed in their own lives experiencing pregnancies and the births of children in their own families and the families of their friends.
A graduate of Concordia University Chicago, Abigail started working with Right to Life in 2014 and quickly realized that the pro-life movement was a place where her passions meet the world’s needs. She has spoken at conferences, schools and churches across the country, teaching how to talk about abortion with people who may not share a Christian worldview. She focuses on a dialogue that is compassionate and based on God’s natural revelation. She also enjoys co-hosting the I Choose Life News and Views Radio Program as a way to educate the pro-life community.
“The abortion speech changed my opinion to pro-life!” – Senior High School Student
“A lively, age-appropriate presentation. The presentation complemented our discussion of the 5th Commandment. Faithful to God’s Word.” -Pastor Doug Christian, St John Flatrock
“Superb! Highly relatable and clear-cut. 8th graders got a lot out of it and it made a real impact.” – 8th Grade Teacher
“Most everything in the presentation was very informal/useful information. The information was very in-depth and well explained. If there was something you thought could’ve been even slightly misunderstood, you did your best to explain it in a simpler way. You were very animated and made the presentation very interesting and enjoyable.” -Anonymous 8th Grade Student
“Miss Eschelbach’s presentation was very polished and informative. Her passion for the pro-life revolution is evident in every statement she makes. I was impressed by her defenses for her beliefs and her ability to easily convey her message to the audience.” – Gabe K. CLHS Senior

Mike served as a pastor for 23 years before joining the staff of Life Training Institute in 2012, where he serves as the Midwest Director of Training. Mike has a burden to awaken the church to the plight of mothers facing unplanned pregnancies and to the little ones they carry. He travels extensively throughout the United States speaking as the keynote at banquets and conferences and addresses thousands of students each year on high school and university campuses. Mike is a gifted and much sought after communicator who brings a pastor’s heart to the often emotional and divisive issue of abortion in a way that is both gracious and compelling.
“Michael Spencer is an outstanding pro-life apologist, combining in his presentation compelling autobiographical details (how he came to be a committed defender of vulnerable unborn babies), indisputable scientific evidence (human life begins at conception), disconcerting analogies (abortion has much in common with slavery and the holocaust in that all three target specific groups of people), and natural law arguments about human equality and dignity. His arguments for the pro-life position are excellent, and presented with the right degrees of objectivity, passion, and compassion.” – Prof. Michael M. Jordan, Professor of English – Faculty Advisor for Students for Life at Hillsdale College
“Michael Spencer came to Lansing Catholic High School and spoke to all of our grade levels, freshman to senior. He did an amazing job of connecting with students of varying ages and backgrounds. I have never before received such positive student feedback about a speaker. Mike delved deep into the abortion debate and yet brought the students along step by step. This was an eye-opener for our students, and even those who were firmly in the pro-life camp found new motivation to go make a difference. We would love to have Mike return again to give us further training in pro-life apologetics.” – Fr. Gordon Reigle, Lansing Catholic High School Lansing, Michigan
