Pro-Life Academy every Tuesday and Thursday.

Warning: This material contains graphic descriptions of the biological events involved in human reproduction. Those under parental supervision should first get permission. Those who may be easily upset by such frank discussion or the content itself are advised to forgo this lesson.
