Thanks for all your birthday comments and prayers for the 18 mothers scheduled for abortions at our local Planned Parenthood. I was able to spend a little bit of time praying at the facility last night with a group of pro-lifers who pray there every week and I just got word that at least two of the mothers did end up choosing life for their babies. Thanks be to God! We mourn the loss of the other 16, of course, but, as much as we want to, we know we can’t save them all. Thanks again!
Speaking of praying at Planned Parenthood and saving lives. The 40 Days for Life fall campaign is coming up soon – Sept. 28 to Nov. 6. It’s amazing how much this campaign has grown in such a short amount of time. This year 297 locations around the world will be participating. Find a location near you.
Since 40 Days for Life started in 2007: Reports document that 4,313 lives that have been spared from abortion — and those are just the ones we know about, 53 abortion workers have quit their jobs and walked away from the abortion industry and 14 abortion facilities completely shut down following local 40 Days for Life campaigns (source). I hope you will consider joining the campaign this fall, even if you can’t make it out to an abortion facility, your prayers at home and in church are just as valuable, if not more!
