Sue Thayer did something that no other local 40 Days for Life leader had ever done before. She led the fall 2011 campaign outside the Planned Parenthood abortion center in Storm Lake, Iowa …
… a facility she used to manage!
More on Sue’s story in just a bit. She just e-mailed me with exciting news.
The local newspaper is reporting that the Planned Parenthood facility in Storm Lake …
… the one Sue used to manage …
… the one where Sue led the 40 Days for Life vigil …
… is CLOSING its doors for good on March 1!
That’s right. This location is GOING OUT OF BUSINESS!
This is the 21st abortion center where a 40 Days for Life vigil has been conducted that will be closing its doors forever.
“Wow!” Sue said in her e-mail. “Of course the clinic is closing! God hears our prayers and He answers! No more telemed abortions on Erie Street! Yay God!!”
If you haven’t heard of telemed abortions, it’s one of Planned Parenthood’s tactics for spreading abortion to rural areas to increase abortion numbers and revenues.
The abortions happen when an abortionist speaks to a woman via webcam over the Internet. They’re each at computer terminals, miles apart, and the “doctor” never physically examines or cares for his “patient.”
After a video interview, the abortionist pushes a button at his location. That opens a locked drawer next to the computer where the woman is watching … a drawer containing the dangerous RU-486 abortion pill.
The woman then takes the pill to begin what Planned Parenthood calls a “medication abortion.”
Sue Thayer had managed the Planned Parenthood office in Storm Lake. She used to think that Planned Parenthood provided valuable services for women and that the organization truly wanted to prevent abortions (the Storm Lake location did not previously do abortions).
That all changed when Planned Parenthood mandated telemed abortions for her facility. Sue expressed her concern — and the abortion chain promptly fired her.
After a time of healing, prayer and discernment, Sue signed up to lead the 40 Days for Life campaign outside her former workplace this past fall.
Sue was just profiled this past weekend in an article in the Des Moines Register. You can read the story at:
Just days after that article appeared — and less than three months after Sue finished leading the 40 Days for Life campaign outside the Storm Lake Planned Parenthood — the closure was announced.
“Let’s all take some time to thank God for His unending love and faithfulness,” Sue said. “40 Days For Life was a blessing to each and every person who prayed. Now the Lord has answered with a resounding YES to our petition to end abortion in Storm Lake. Praise the Lord!”
In just three weeks, the next 40 Days for Life campaign begins. Watch VERY SOON for the list of communities that will be taking part …
… and maybe — through your prayers and participation — YOUR community will be the next one praising God for the closure of the local abortion center.
I can’t wait to see what God has in store for this next campaign!
