When is National Pro-Life Cupcake Day?
The 9th of October is National Pro-Life Cupcake Day.
What is National Pro-Life Cupcake Day?
Cupcakes for life. It sounds like an amazing bakery deal, but it’s actually the organization that organized National Pro-Life Cupcake Day. This day raises awareness about the lives of aborted children and the impact abortion has on our culture.
Why cupcakes? Because they’re delicious and easily decorated, and because it’s a warm way to welcome people into conversation about an otherwise contentious topic.
The issue of abortion too often divides people into factions. We can’t understand each other unless we talk, so National Pro-Life Cupcake Day creates opportunities for discussion about the humanity of pre-born babies, as well as the effects abortion has on mothers and on the culture.
Facts about National Pro-Life Cupcake Day!
- A baby’s heart begins to beat 3-4 weeks after conception.

How to celebrate National Pro-Life Cupcake Day:
If you’re pro-life, make a cupcake and give it to a stranger. Tell them it’s for National Pro-Life Cupcake Day. Remind them that not every baby has a chance to have a birthday because of abortion, and then ask them about their thoughts on the issue. This day is for educating people through careful listening and open discussion.
If you’re pro-choice, you can still observe the day. Welcome someone on the other side of the fence into a non-hostile conversation about the topic.
