Many may recall Abby Johnson’s memoir Unplanned that became to focus of her Walk Away story from the abortion industry. It was also turned into a movie in 2019 that got many people talking and brought her story to life.
During the state March for Life in Harrisburg, PA, it was revealed that Abby Johnson will pick up right where she left off from her debut book.
In her forthcoming novel, Fierce Mercy Abby will reflect on her first decade of her involvement in the pro-life movement while also sharing lessons that can be applied in everyday life,
The book is set to be released in March of 2022, but you can pre-order it here.
The following report, from the 2020 Pa. Department of Health Abortion Statistics, provides a stark reminder for the ongoing need for these campaigns.
Planned Parenthood, Warminster – 885 Planned Parenthood, West Chester – 1,141 Planned Parenthood, Norristown – 822 Planned Parenthood, Northeast Philadelphia – 2,393 Planned Parenthood, Center City – 3,705 Philadelphia Women’s Center – 6,224
We will not know what played a role in the dip in numbers last year. Whether it was COVID or not, we know that it is not a time to lick our wounds and hope it continues to take a dip. We must continue to be present. Are you ready to take a stand today? Learn how here
Voices for Life prayer campaign continues into the 4th week.
This week please join us in praying for NY Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Ocasio-Cortez has been the subject of some memes that attack her intelligence. I know because I have neighbors that love using her as a punchline. Here, she is the subject of prayer for her to open her eyes as she supported the murder of 1/3 of her peers. When I did my research on her, it has occurred to me that she is just two months older than me
I chose her for three reasons:
She is originally from Venezuela where socialism is drying the very bone of a once productive country.
That God sends many Christians across her path to share the Gospel
That the light of Christ sets her free from the deceit and darkness of satan
That she falls to her knees and surrenders her life to Jesus Christ, her only hope for salvation
That the Holy Spirit shows her overwhelming proof that abortion is murder and
That she becomes an advocate for mothers and their unborn babies.
Please join me this week in remembering Representative Ocasio-Cortez in your daily prayers.
Now, please join me in prayer.
Fount of Mercy Prayer
Heavenly Father, in the Name of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit, we come to You with a contrite heart and with faith for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that You will give her the grace of conversion. O blood and water that gushed forth from the heart of Jesus, as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in You. Enlighten this mind that is ensnared in ignorance and sin and darkness. Bring her into the fold of the Holy Catholic Church. Amen.
