Amazing photo

Wednesday, August 28th, 2013

Look at this amazing photo taken yesterday!

Yes, that’s the sign being torn down outside the CLOSED Planned Parenthood abortion center in Bryan/College Station, Texas — the site of the first-ever 40 Days for Life campaign, and the center previously directed by Abby Johnson, who had a conversion, quit her job and became a pro-life activist.

Isn’t that symbolic of the abortion industry as it continues to flounder and fail?

Think what it will be like when the sign is torn down outside the closed abortion center in YOUR city. Two more Planned Parenthood centers — where 40 Days for Life campaigns were held — shut down this week alone!

In just a week and a half, on Saturday, September 7, the place where that picture was taken will be the site of BREAKTHROUGH 09.07.13 where people from across America — and beyond — will gather to:

  • REMEMBER the children who lost their lives
  • PRAY for healing of those harmed by abortion
  • THANK God for hearing and answering prayers
  • SHARE the hope with cities across America

WHAT: BREAKTHROUGH 09.07.13

DATE: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 7

TIME: 10 AM – 12 NOON followed by fellowship time with free lunch at separate location for those who RSVP

PLACE: In the public right-of-way outside the closed Planned Parenthood abortion center at 4112 E 29th Street in Bryan, Texas

Hundreds more people have RSVP’d for the event over the last few days, and people have confirmed that they are coming from as far away as AUSTRALIA to learn how to replicate this success where they live!

Now, whether you can attend in person or not, I have a favor to ask …

September 7 celebration of Texas abortion center closure

Tuesday, August 20th, 2013

Hundreds of pro-life advocates from dozens of states are already making plans to travel to Bryan/College Station, Texas for BREAKTHROUGH 09.07.13 – the September 7 celebration of the most historic abortion center closure in the 40 years of legalized abortion in the United States.

The celebration, which was first announced late last week, is set for Saturday, September 7 from 10 AM to noon in the public right-of-way outside the closed Planned Parenthood abortion center at 4112 East 29th Street in Bryan, Texas.

David Bereit, national director of 40 Days for Life, said, “The announcement that Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, Inc. was shutting down its controversial abortion center in Bryan/College Station generated widespread excitement due to its significance as an epicenter of the American abortion debate. This is a turning point in the struggle to end the injustice of abortion across our nation.”

The Planned Parenthood abortion center in Bryan/College Station has gained nationwide attention:

  • Site of the first-ever 40 Days for Life campaign in 2004, an effort that has since grown into a worldwide pro-life mobilization of 575,000 volunteers in 501 cities around the globe; those volunteers have witnessed 7,536 babies saved from abortion, 39 abortion centers closed, and 83 workers quitting their jobs in the abortion industry
  • Place where former abortion center director and Planned Parenthood employee of the year Abby Johnson experienced a conversion, quit her job, and became an outspoken pro-life advocate, going on to found And Then There Were None, a new ministry which has since helped 77 other workers to leave the abortion industry over the last year
  • Impetus for the formation of the Coalition for Life, the grassroots organization which Planned Parenthood credited for making the community “the most anti-choice place in the nation,” and responsible for what Planned Parenthood described as its “most consistent and active” opposition in the nation

In addition to Bereit, speakers at the event will include:

  • Lauren Gulde, founder of the local Coalition for Life
  • Marilisa Carney, former director of the Coalition for Life
  • Shawn Carney, campaign director of 40 Days for Life
  • Abby Johnson, former director of the Bryan/College Station Planned Parenthood abortion center who became a pro-life advocate
  • Bobby Reynoso, executive director of the Coalition for Life

You can RSVP to attend the free celebration event online.
