Testimony from the Sidewalk: Quakers for Life (University of Penn)

Quakers for Life

I got this update from the Quakers for life who spent time at 12th and locust…

Yesterday as we were handing out resources and praying outside of Planned Parenthood a gentleman who was cleaning the sidewalks stopped in between us and the escorts—

He told us that he always stops here and tells everyone that his mother got pregnant with him at the age of 14 and that he very easily could not be here. Making the right decision, she kept him and gave him up for adoption. He spoke of how lucky he was as he eventually got to have 2 moms and 2 dads.

He said it is his duty to show people how he wouldn’t be here and that everyone matters!

This was a very humbling and bone-chilling experience as over 4,000 babies are killed at this location every year. We didn’t get the man’s name, but we thank him for sharing his story as a testament to others while encouraging and reminding us all why we are out there!

Guys we have had more signs and resources stolen than ever before… Pat continues to make more signs and bring more pamphlets, but please do your best to bring resources with you.

here is the web address to print them out:
