Abigail Lorenzen – Operations & Media Director at Allen County Right to Life

Abigail Lorenzen – Speaker Info Interested in speaking to: Bible Study Groups, Church Groups, 8th Grade Classes, High School Students, College Students, Youth Groups

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.


50 reviews from Abigail’s break out session at Higher Things Youth Conference 2017

“The abortion speech changed my opinion to pro-life!” – Senior High School Student

“As a person who was a little indifferent over the issue of abortion, Abigail’s reasons has convinced me on what my stance should be.” – High School Student, Higher Things Youth Conference 2017

“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

[Mrs. Lorenzen’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

“When I walked in to the room I was sure I’d be able to dissect and debunk any argument she might conjure. I went in confident that my pro-choice ideals would at least get some people questioning their preconceived notions of the immorality of abortion. I’m happy to report, I was wrong. Abigail was able to eviscerate all of my predispositions regarding this topic. I didn’t have a single question that she didn’t have an answer to. Even my seemingly most solid arguments were explained to the point where I had nothing left to say. I was prepared for exclusively Christian arguments that relied on things like souls and the fact that god has a plan for babies immediately after conception, amazingly she defended the pro-life position from a secular standpoint which was very important to me. Using Christian arguments only influence Christians and have no effect on non-believers, so taking it from a worldly standpoint is essential. At one point I resorted to attempting to catch her on technicalities and when I confronted her with these she was unfazed and clarified it for me. Abigail really impressed me; I’m not one to have my thoughts disproved and my mind changed. She is one of the first adversaries I’ve encountered able to alter my way of thought. She is very intelligent and more than capable of influencing even the most devout pro-choicer. You guys are lucky to have her!” – Caleb, Senior at Concordia Lutheran High School

Mike Spencer – Director of Midwest Training for Life Training Institute

Interested in speaking to: Bible Study Groups, Youth Groups, and at Fundraising Events

Also check Mike out at http://prolifemike.org/


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
