Abortion Pill Reversal; Call for Help

The following is from an email sent by Dr. Monique Ruberu sent last evening.

Today I received a text from Dominic who was praying outside PP… he had encountered a woman who was headed in to abort. This mom was crying, so sad but so scared. She was in a very tough situation and Dom needed support. His shift was almost over and he didn’t want to leave the sidewalk empty in case she came out seeking help. 


Thanks be to God Bill showed up to relieve him and continue the prayer for this woman in particular. 


A few minutes ago I received a call from the APR hotline. I called the woman who took an abortion pill at 11 am at 12th and Locust today! 
I asked her if she encountered Dom on the way in and she said “yes”

I told her that Dom and I had been praying for her today and we were so happy she called!

now I ask each of you to pray for this little 9 week baby! Pray that she takes the progesterone on time and that the baby is saved from abortion. 

KNOW that without Dom and Bill covering these hours today this girl likely would never have known that REVERSAL was an option. 

PRAISE GOD !!!! And thank you to all of you who show up and have chosen your hours to be present!!!

Here are the remaining hours for the 1st week!!

Wanna Get Involved in Public Policy? Two Opportunities To Do So

The Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia is launching an exciting outreach in the effort to gear up for a post-Roe America. The following exerpt is from Joe Garecht.

In many ways, the end of legalized abortion in our country is closer than ever before. It is critical that we engage on every front of this battle with thoughtful, coordinated and effective advocacy for the unborn.

Would you consider joining our newly formed Pro-Life Action Team? Led by Joe Garecht and the PLU Public Affairs committee, the goal of this group is to concentrate citizen advocacy for the pro life cause in the spheres of politics and the media.

Commitment will be a specific action item once every other month – typically contacting a legislator via phone or email, or sending a comment/op ed to local media outlets – and occasional meetings, no more than twice per year.

Our voices are powerful! We have heard from state legislators that they felt compelled to act on bills in front of their committee after receiving as few as 12 emails or phone calls from constituents. When we organize and combine our advocacy efforts we improve the chance for lasting change in our community on behalf of the unborn.

Please send your name, email and phone number to Tom Stevens with the subject Pro-Life Action Team to mail@prolifeunion.org and let us know we can add you to the Pro-Life Action Team!

In addition, Students for Life of America have an opportunity to give you the knowledge and tools to engage in public policy.

While COVID-19 is affecting the pro-life movement’s ability to train grassroots activists of all ages, Students for Life is now able to bring our pro-life trainings from campuses right into your home.  Enroll in pro-life “majors” in each pillar of pro-life activism.

Not a student?  No problem!  Continuing your education is important to us and there is no age limit on being an effective pro-life advocate. 

How Does It Work?

  • There are four course subjects (Effective Education, Industry Impact, Public Policy, and Supportive Services) in each of the three education levels (High School, College, Adult).
  • All are welcome to join one or more classes as the schedule allows.  Each course will cover FIVE bi-weekly live video classes, and four on-your-own optional assignment weeks.
  • Classes begin the week of September 14th (check each course for exact times) and wrap-up the week of November 9th. 

REGISTER NOW for a course in your current education level. 
Scroll down to choose: High School, College, or Continuing Education (Adult).

If course times do not fit in your schedule, you can work through our self-paced pillar courses which are always available on www.studentsforlifehq.com or connect with your Regional Coordinator here.

Waco Joins 120 cities in National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children on September 12th

The following is fromJohn Pisciotta of Pro-Life Waco. Waco pro-life residents are encouraged to attend and join in prayer in memory of the children of the womb lost through abortion.  

 

Less than two weeks away. I am so eager to see you there. We will have a tent and the weather is getting better. With a backdrop of 4,000 white crosses and the Tomb of the Unknown Baby, the program will be from 9 to 10:30 AM. Waco is one of 55 memorial sites nationwide where an aborted baby has been interred. You will love our keynote speaker Heather Hobbs of Save The 1 ministries. The title of her message will be “Don’t be deceived. She is a child no matter how she was conceived.” Heather resisted pressure to abort three of her four children because the pregnancies were “hard cases.”

Local speakers will be Deborah McGregor (CareNet), Aine Fitzgerald (40 Days for Life) John Pisciotta (Pro-Life Waco), and Lynn Rasberry with a personal testimony. You will learn how you can incorporate defending babies in the womb into your Christian walk. Among the 60 million babies lost to abortion in America are 20,000 at Planned Parenthood in Waco. Let’s honor these precious ones lost to abortion and defend their brothers and sisters threatened in our community in 2020.

Witness from Sidewalk Servant

The following is from an email blast sent by Deborah regarding an encounter a sidewalk servant witnessed outside of Planned Parenthood

One of the Sidewalk Servants, Bob, shared a story about a young lady they encountered last Thursday at 12th & Locust, and we wanted to share it with you. Please take a few moments to read it; this woman’s comment “I wish you had been here when I came before” is just heart wrenching… It is an encouragement for all of us to give a little of our time to be there for each woman and baby; they need us… Our presence can make all the difference! Please give a couple of hours of your time this week, and ask family and friends to join you or to sign up for a time also.  God bless you!
His story:
At 12th and Locust this AM, Rose approached and I offered her a brochure, pointed to the Community Women’s Center of Philadelphia (Women’s Center) next doorand suggested she could get care that did not include abortion there.  She was a beautiful and very mature young lady.  She smiled knowingly and said she thought she was pregnant, that she had taken the first part of the chemical abortion but thought it had failed.  She spoke of immediate regret upon doing so and said she was happy to be pregnant.
I expressed my hope and joy at that possibility, and encouraged her to go next door.  We also gave her the Natural Womens’ Health material from Dr. Monique. But she proceeded anyway to go into Planned Parenthood. I cautioned her to be careful that she not listen to untruths in Planned Parenthood.  
I then called the Women’s Centernumber to prepare them in the event she came out.  When I was returning to the sidewalk in front of the Planned Parenthood, I saw Rose speaking with Bob G, another Sidewalk Servant who was there with me.  Bob was very encouraging and loving as he learned from her that, despite testing positive for pregnancy at home, she had tested negative in PP.  I also tried to be comforting, asking her to google Rachel’s Vineyard which she proceeded to do.  We also encouraged her to visit the Women’s Center, to consult on her situation and perhaps be re-tested.  She did, but before leaving us she looked at us with big, beautiful brown eyes and said “I wish you had been here when I came before”.  My heart aches. 
Please encourage folks to continue to come out to pray and be there for these women. I found her story so encouraging. The women need us there!  Let’s be there for them.
Thanks to Pat and others for all they have done to be present during the first and hopefully only COVID storm in Phila.
Please pray for Rose.
Bob

ABBY JOHNSON SHARES REALITY OF ABORTION DURING REPUBLICAN NATIONAL CONVENTION

The recap of the Republican National Convention continues. This time we highlight Abby Johnson.

Abby Johnson is no stranger to pro-lifers and pro-abortion mobs alike. Her biopic came out last year, based on a memoir she wrote on how she led the #WalkAway movement from the abortion industry.

Here’s her full speech from the convention here.
