Nearly 4500 lives end on an annual basis in Center City Philadelphia. Thankfully, we have seen moms change their minds and even chose life.
Across the street is a life-saving facility that has seen an uptick in clientele. Some of it has to do with the peaceful presence every day outside of Planned Parenthood.
The campaign, running from September 22nd through October 30th, is looking for brave pro-lifers to cover an hour or two with love, prayer, and mercy. The facility is open Monday through Saturday from 7 AM to 5PM. Abortions are committed from Wednesday through Saturday. Philadelphia Community Women’s Center, under the operation of Legacy of Life, is across the street and will be open every day as well to meet the needs of any mom who changes her mind about abortion.
Sign up for campaign hours here. Bring a friend, group, or even someone who needs to do more in the pro-life movement.
If interested in the campaign at 777 Appletree, visit here.
Below is information from SF Bay Area Life Runners on the upcoming 40 Days for Life Campaign.

The location is still Planned Parenthood at 1522 Bush Street. We’re working on getting security guards again with 40 Days for Life headquarters.
There has been tremendous pro life momentum recently with the Texas 6-week ban. Let’s use this season to keep praying for the end to abortion! Here’s how you can help:

6500 lives are murdered every year at the largest non-Planned Parenthood affiliate in Pennsylvania. Abortion. No matter what exists well at Philadelphia Women’s Center, located a few mere blocks from Independence Hall. During recent years, pro-lifers overcame assaults from escorts that were told not to return again, stolen property, bring videotaped by a professor of engineering who covered up sexual assault at Swarthmore University, vandalize signs, and a potty mouth security guard who has a demon inside of her.
Despite everything thrown against the faithful pro-lifers that are out there from Tuesday to Saturday, there have been saves and possibly some that went unreported by the grace of God.
The facility is open from Tuesday to Saturday 7AM to 4PM. Your presence, even for just one hour, is needed. We are yet to witness one of the dedicated workers at this murder center walk away from this place. Please sign up for hours here.
Prayer for Our Nation
God Our Father, giver of life, we entrust the United States of America to Your loving care. You are the rock on which this nation was founded. You alone are the true source of our cherished rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Reclaim this land for Your glory and dwell among Your people. Send Your Spirit to touch the hearts of our nation’s leaders. Open their minds to the great worth of human life and the responsibilities that accompany human freedom. Remind Your people that true happiness is rooted in seeking and doing Your will. Through the intercession of Mary Immaculate, Patroness of our land, grant us the courage to reject the culture of death. Lead us into a new millennium of life. We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
The following is from an e-mail blast sent by Dr. Monique Ruberu.
Last Saturday Irene who is new to sidewalk counseling (only her 2nd time praying there) came and joined Jim at 12th and Locust. A college-age guy and girl were stunned at the sign. They complained about the facts written about Margaret Sanger.
Four male friends showed up. Two held back so I asked what they knew about Margaret Sanger. Never heard of her.
Irene alertly noticed one of the other guys nodding at her points as she explained how bad abortion was so she asked him to speak.
He simply said “I’m adopted. I would have been aborted.”
The six then headed off to some event with no further debate.
You don’t have to speak… all we ask is that you lovingly, prayerfully stand witness and offer resources if possible…
I promise that if you stand in prayer the Holy Spirit will give you the words needed when the time comes to speak.
Please help us have an unbroken chain of prayer!!! Please help us fill these empty slots.
The following is from an email blast sent by Dr. Monique Ruberu. Please visit 40daysforlife.com to sign up for hours now and encourage family and friends to join you.
Im in Houston today at the 2021 40 days for Life Leaders Symposium. Yesterday we were praying and rallying outside of the largest abortion center in the Western Hemisphere… where as of 2016 the reported number of deaths were 8000 a year. This fact struck me for a few reasons… number one… the abortion industry has not reported their numbers SINCE 2016… and number 2 in downtown Philadelphia the two abortion centers we pray at and offer help and hope end more lives combined every year. 777 that is only open 5 days a week ends the lives of 6000 babies a year. My friends… if this pit of hell in Houston is the largest in the western hemisphere.. we sadly pray outside one of the Largest centers as well.
Last night We were blessed to hear from Abby Johnson… if any of you haven’t seen “Unplanned” let me know – I have a dvd I would be happy to lend you so you can show at your church or group to help people understand the importance of this mission.
Abby as usual made some amazing points.
#1 – People may say – I want these abortion Doctors or politicians to be Blessed – yes it sounds very Christian, but she pointed out that to “Be blessed” means that your plans are approved by God and that they go UNINTERRUPTED. She said that Her desire was NOT for them to be blessed, but for them to be INTERRUPTED in every one of their plans. SHe wants them to be frustrated, to feel lost, to finally understand that the sin they are standing in can never bring them happiness, peace, joy. Friends we are the INTERRUPTERS. When we show up and lovingly reach out to the abortionist, the workers, the escorts… the Moms the Dads… we are INTERRUPTING Satan’s plan. We Are bringing the most powerful tool with us – PRAYER AND FASTING. We are asking for the intercession of GOD. We are invoking the HOLY SPIRIT. This is the most powerful thing we can do… and we can’t do it unless we SHOW UP.
#2 – Our work is LIFE CHANGING. Abby pointed out that three of the people who prayed her out of the abortion center were sitting with us at the Gala… their prayer their fasting, brought about a change in her heart. There was another former abortion worker there who is now starting a campaign at her old place of work- PRAISE GOD!!! The woman who prayed her best friend (another abortion worker) out was sitting next to her at the table, when her best friend left she followed soon after… The moments we spend outside of these places are never wasted… every moment, every sacrifice goes toward the greater cause of saving lives, changing lives, you NEVER know what your small sacrifice of 2 hours a week will do for another person.
#3 – Abby said that over 600 workers have left – there aren’t that many more abortion centers in the United States… She said that we likely don’t even know it but people from our clinics have likely left… and are healing with abortionworker.com. PRAISE GOD!!!
#4 Abby shared a story of a recent conversation she had… A worker called her crying and said that she had to leave… when Abby asked her why she said, “That woman outside…” Abby asked, “What did she say to you?” the worker said, ” No she didn’t say anything…” Confused, Abby said, “What do you mean?” The worker went on to say… “It was pouring rain outside… this woman was there all by herself… nobody was with her… and in the middle of this horrible storm she knelt down and continued praying..” The worker went on to say, “I was so convicted… this woman loved the babies and me so much… that she would kneel on the hard concrete in the middle of a torrential storm… to pray for us… I just can’t do this anymore… I have to leave” PRAISE GOD
Friends… we were CREATED for this time. To stand up for God, to be His soldiers in this time of persecution… We know what our enemy is… not the abortionist, not the people persecuting us, not the workers… but Satan… We have our marching orders… deep inside your gut you KNOW what HE wants you to do…
So I will ask you… Are you WITH US? Will you Sacrifice for OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR? Will you be on the WINNING TEAM so that one day we can all celebrate in the GLORY OF HEAVEN? Are you willing to Humble yourself? Are you Willing to Sacrifice? Are you willing to Worship God in one of the most difficult and rewarding ways possible? Are you willing to face Him at the end of your life without the security of knowing that you did EVERYTHING in your power to end the greatest sin of all time? When you face Him and he Asks you… will you be able to look Him in the face and know you did your part?
Friends we need you… We are not just there for 40 days of life 2 X a year… we are out there every day. Because abortions happen every day except Sunday. PLEASE. respond to this email, let us know that you are willing to commit.
Give us 2 hours a week , or 2 hours every other week and Help us to end abortion in out Philadelphia.
We are over a third into the dog days of summer. By now, we have seen advertisements for back-to-school, last-minute summer getaways, and even some early Christmas deals. Before you know it, the summer is over and it is back to reality for many people. Here are some things you can do this month to advance the culture of life:
A beautiful spring Saturday dawned upon the 150 pro-lifers that came out to celebrate outside of the largest non-Planned Parenthood affiliate in the State of Pennsylvania.
Fr. Matthew Bierdrycki of the Basilica of Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral delivered the opening prayer for all in attendance.
Those who attendant heard from speakers that ranges from seasoned veterans to young leaders on college campuses and just added to the fold a high school senior.
One in particular was Emily Jones. Jones, a senior at Mount St. Joseph’s Academy in Flourtown, spoke about how the inaugural Philadelphia March for Life inspired her to do more for the pro-life cause. Despite backlash, threats, and even the loss of friendships she endured, she kept the faith and helped revitalize her school’s pro-life group. She even signed up for vigil hours.
Two prominent college women spoke to the crowd, Karly Brown of Temple and Kassidy Johnson.
Johnson, a junior at University of Pennsylvania and member of Quakers for Life, shared how she was moved from her experience in Philadelphia. Coming from North Dakota which has only one abortion facility, Johnson shared how she knew that more had to be done to protect life.
For Karly Brown, she is no stranger to pro-life activism in Philadelphia area. Every Friday, her and Sean Garvey, both students at Temple would pray outside of Warminster Planned Parenthood. They both are now engaged. Congratulations Karly and Sean.
Pat Stanton goes on to share why our world should not tolerate the evil of abortion. Using examples of historical figures, he reminded everyone that each of them fought against the injustices of their time. He asked that we do the same when it comes to abortion.
Below is a reflection and testimony on a save that happened yesterday outside of Planned Parenthood in Center City. My hope is that someone would be inspired to step into the breach to save lives as I do with many of my fellow pro-lifers.
Today was a day filled with so much traffic. I remember people walking by shaking their heads in disgust of my presence outside of an abortion facility that is the epitome of White Supremacy. Even one person (Jacob )that walks the route along locust on his way to work, only to stop to snap a photo of me and send it to his friend Anna from (Philadelphia Women’s Center).
As I was winding down my two hour coverage, two young women were going in as I offered to them a blessing bag. They declined and went inside.
A few minutes later, those same girls came out two minutes apart. One of them was crying. I knew that it was my moment as I prayed the flying novena. After concluding the flying novena, the girls came out of the gate. This time, I wasted no time offering them life saving information. They thanked me for sharing and wished me a good day as I watched them walk away from the place.
If this is not why we are needed outside of places of doom and gloom then I don’t know what is.
And what amazes me is she went from tears of sadness and woe to leaving PP with a hint of hope for her and child
It also dawned on me that today is the Solemnity of the Annunciation. God’s sense of timing for yet another news worth of praise.
Please attend the closing rally outside of the largest non-Planned Parenthood affiliate in our city and state.
