FALL 2022 40 DAYS PREVIEW: PWC

6500. That’s the total number of abortions committed at Philadelphia Women’s Center, located in the Chinatown section and just a 1/4 of a mile from Independence Hall.

The facility has been in operation for 50 years. Ironically, it sits five floors above a daycare in an eight-story building.

Pro-lifers overcame jeers from Heather and her friends that work at the facility, dog feces on the sidewalk where they pray, and intimidation of other sorts, yet those who have been out there continued to persevere.

The vigil hours are Tuesday to Friday from 7AM-4PM. Saturdays from 6AM to 3PM.

Do pray for the following workers and volunteers of the facility to have a conversion: Amanda Kifferly, Heather Loesch (Security Guard), Lisa Perriera, Edith Miller, Anna Smith, Bruce Love, Colin McCrossen, Chris Hill, and Lynne Molter

FALL 2022 40 DAYS FOR LIFE PREVIEW: PLANNED PARENTHOOD CENTER CITY

The Fall 2022 40 Days for Life Campaign begins on Wednesday, September 28th. Here’s a preview of the campaigns in the Greater Philadelphia Area

In the heart of Philadelphia, the second biggest murder mill is there. The place has been defended by disgraced State Rep. Brian Sims, who has not apologized to the girls who were doxed by him in a live video. He was never to be seen during and after the Stand Against Bullying Rally when people watched in dismay and disgust the way he harassed women who stood against Planned Parenthood. 4,000 lives have been lost at the facility on a yearly basis.

The good news is there’s a Community Women’s Center across the street that offers healthy alternatives to abortion. They have build countless relationships with moms who went from abortion minded to choosing life for their child.

Pro-Lifers in Greater Philly area can help in saving lives with their prayers and support.

The campaign will run from September 28th to Saturday November 5th. The hours are 8 AM to 5 PM Monday through Saturday. Visit here to sign up today. Bring your own materials.

Learn what to do or say when on the sidewalk here.

Remember to pray for the conversion of the following workers and volunteers:

Dr. Lee Anthony Tripp

Dr. Joel Lebed

Jonathan Lovitz

Anna Smith

Dr. Lin-Fan Wang

Alhambra Frarey

Aishat Olatunde

Angie Ortiz 

Bobbie Trotenberg

Sylvia Metzler

Twelve little souls were saved that we know of because of your prayers, your fasting, your love… your presence!!!  PRAISE GOD!!!!! 

Almost every hour was covered with prayer on the sidewalk… hours of prayer and witness resulted in 12 known lifelines which will lead to 100’s of other people coming from each of those babies. 

NOW, YOU’RE NEEDED TO FILL EVERY HOUR MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.

Learn more here. Your presence is needed

Happy Easter!!!!! The Lord Is Risen!

FIVE SAVES IN ONE WEEK

The headline says it all. In two separate email blasts within 48 hours, Monique reported five saves.

On Monday and Tuesday, a save took place, one from each facility. On Friday, a student from UPenn reported of a woman changing her mind about abortion and connected her to Alpha Pregnancy in West Philly.

On Wednesday, a pro-lifer encountered a police officer who shared how he saved his son from abortion 34 years ago.

Then, Dr. Monique Ruberu received two calls about women who took the abortion pill and want to reverse it. She was able to call in the medication needed to begin the process.

We are making strides. Continue to do your part in saving lives with your loving and peaceful presence.
