It is the tenth month of the year. 2021 is winding down. We are seeing various displays of pumpkin spice themes, Halloween commercials, and even people flocking to the farms for apple picking and pumpkin.
As we begin a new month, let us continue to recommit ourselves to defending life from womb to tomb.
Here are events and things that can be done in October
The following report, from the 2020 Pa. Department of Health Abortion Statistics, provides a stark reminder for the ongoing need for these campaigns.

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
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.

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:

The weather is dreary for many of us and we are still living under Covid-19 restrictions so we need to create our own bright spots in our days. One bright spot I recommend is joining the virtual tour of Legacy of Life on Thursday, February 18th at 7 PM EST on Zoom. You will learn first hand about the work Legacy of Life does everyday to support moms and their children. Legacy of Life offers life-changing alternatives to women who are considering abortion…alternatives that Planned Parenthood does not offer. My first tour there made realize that when I stand outside an abortion center, I can be confident in the alternative resources I offer women. I know they will be taken care of if they only make the call. Below are the details for joining the tour. I guarantee you will be uplifted after taking part in this tour and may even decide to volunteer or donate to this worthwhile mission.
You are invited to join the Legacy of Life Foundation! You will hear from our advocates about how love & mercy give a woman hope even after they have been abandoned by their family, friends, and even the father of their baby just because they are pregnant. Advocates and Ultrasound techs will share how through love and mercy truth transforms a woman’s heart from abortion-minded to saying YES to life. These stories will melt your heart and reaffirm that, yes, hope abounds through love & mercy!
Mark your calendars and join us! Share this invitation with a friend and help transform their Lenten journey! Don’t miss a special message from Archbishop Nelson Perez of the Archdiocese of PhiladelphiaThursday, February 18, 20217pm EST on Zoom
This is an invitation to take part in the Legacy of Life’s Home for the Holidays virtual fundraiser. The fundraiser started Thursday evening and continues through Sunday, 11/15 at midnight. You can donate online and thanks to generous supporters, gifts will be doubled up to $40,000. Access the virtual video through the website or through Legacy of Life’s Facebook page.
If you are not familiar with Legacy of Life, this non-profit organization invests in educating, inspiring and supporting women in unplanned pregnancies to find the strength to choose Life. It provides Hope when pregnant women and their families are in despair and may turn to abortion. This organization provides assistance to two pregnancy centers in the Philadelphia area, one in Center City Philadelphia and one in suburban Bucks County, PA.
Please view their website and learn additional details about the work that they do. Watch the videos on the site – you will see pure joy in the face of the moms and their children who have been assisted through the Legacy of Life. You can also learn about volunteer opportunities and donations. I have personally taken a tour of one of their facilities and can attest to the warm and caring environment they have created for women who are unsure about which way to turn.
With the Covid 19 virus curtailing our social schedules, and with the holidays upon us and our Black Friday shopping on hold, perhaps you have a little wiggle room in your budget to offer a donation to a worthy cause. Help make a happy holiday season for a woman, her child and her family!
