DAY 14: Planned Parenthood is abortion

Planned Parenthood used to pretend its mission isn’t abortion.

But, unlike her predecessors, the new CEO is not very good at hiding what Planned Parenthood really is. In an interview, she said that abortion is its “core mission,” and we now see that on the sidewalks.

A young couple in Houston, Texas visited the largest abortion facility in the Western Hemisphere hoping for a prenatal checkup. Instead, the couple was given an abortion price list.

When these proud parents said they just wanted an ultrasound, they were told they’d need to wait three hours. “They are all messed up, up in there!” they told the sidewalk counselors, who were able to direct them to a FREE ultrasound on Houston’s pro-life mobile pregnancy center bus.

You don’t keep a 78,000 square foot abortionplex open without a price list.

An ultrasound bus versus a massive abortion facility is a true David and Goliath battle. But vigil participants in Houston are seeing God save lives every day!

Goma, Democratic Republic of Congo

“Abortion is not allowed by law,” said Paul, who leads the campaign in Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). “But we are witnessing many, many cases of abortions here locally.”

How is that possible? The country’s abortion ban has a “life-of-the-mother” exception. It’s a massive breach that medical professionals in DRC exploit to perform a LOT of abortions.

“When I was reading [the] data, I was tempted to think that in DR Congo, there is a higher rate of abortion cases than in some countries where abortion is allowed,” Paul said.

Lawndale, California

“All-in-all, great!” said Lawndale coordinator Laura. “We have about three new churches involved, so our volunteer list has grown by about 30-40 people, many new to this work.”

Laura’s outreach in Southern California has added a distinctly international flavor to her campaign. Among her new volunteers, “one is a retired fellow from Sri Lanka, and another is a grandmother from Peru.”

The Lawndale team has achieved 12 hours of on-site vigil presence daily. “The word is spreading about our efforts!”

Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake has forgiven you. — Ephesians 4:31-32

Dearest God, You tell us in Proverbs that the foolish and the wicked lack wisdom and understanding. I pray you will trouble the souls of those in the abortion industry so that they hunger for truth and cry out for freedom.
