The abortion industry will do anything to keep women away from abortion alternatives.
Glendale, Arizona 40 Days for Life leader Tammy found that out on day 1. “Planned Parenthood had a surprise for us,” she said.
Shortly before the start of the campaign, the abortion facility planted 8-foot tall trees across the front of the property to separate abortion clients from anyone who might wish to offer life-affirming pregnancy options.
Last campaign, Planned Parenthood claimed land that had long been used as a public easement as its private property. Attorneys are examining the matter.
“They are practically imposing their own buffer zone,” Tammy said.
Fortunately, Planned Parenthood’s tactics aren’t working.
“We are still getting turnarounds!” Tammy reported. “Happened yesterday as a sidewalk counselor convinced a young couple to leave Planned Parenthood and go to a pregnancy center for [a] free ultrasound…Mom would’ve been in today for an abortion.”
When the 40 Days for Life team in Augusta, Maine launched its first campaign a decade ago, Maine Family Planning started a “pledge-a-picketer” campaign. The effort included a big banner announcing the latest amount of money pledged to support the abortion facility.
“They told their supporters it would discourage us from being there,” said Janet, the Augusta leader.
This year the fundraiser is conspicuously absent.
“No banner. No mention of us on their blog,” Janet said. “It appears that as we enter our 10th year praying in front of their facility, they realize we are not going away.”
Nashville’s campaign leader, Jeff, learned that Thursday was the intake day for patients scheduling Saturday abortions.
“But they were not open Friday or Saturday,” Jeff said.
That means two days in which pre-born children and their mothers were safe from Planned Parenthood!
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. —John 1:14
Heavenly Father, I thank you for your love and saving grace in Christ Jesus. Help us to realize every day the great blessing we have in our Savior. I pray that we will rise every morning with excitement and zeal, looking forward to walking another day in your footsteps fully knowing that you continue to dwell among us.
