Below is a message from Rachel Hayes, Leader of Forty Days for Life, Chester County, PA.
September 22nd (6pm – 7pm) Kickoff at St. Agnes Parish, 233 West Gay Street, West Chester (parking behind the church). Join us for a time of prayer, praise, and testimony to the beauty and sanctity of Life. Who doesn’t need to be freshly encouraged to persevere and not give up hope as we launch into our 27th campaign of peacful vigil to save lives and end abortion in West Chester?
40 days for Life begins September 23 covering weekdays and Saturdays, 7am -7pm. I really need your help to get these hours filled as soon as possible. I know we all have very busy lives filled with service, work, school, and caring for our families, but if each person on this list committed to just one hour of vigil and encouraged one family member/friend to do the same, we could have the entire vigil fully covered with two people present & praying throughout. We can do this!
Do you have one hour to give from Sept. 23rd – Oct. 31st?
PLEASE visit our campaign page and commit NOW for an hour of vigil anytime throughout the campaign and/or sign up through your church’s vigil coordinator.
October 17th Midway Baby Donation Dropoff. Email to follow with specific needs, and information will also be posted to our campaign page.
THANK YOU in advance for stepping up to be a voice for the voiceless!

Walter B. Hoye II, Founder, Issues4Life Foundation located in Union City, California sends the following information about the new pro-life movie ‘Divided Hearts of America. This documentary is available on Video on Demand starting today, September 17th. Use the link below to order your copy.
“Abortion in America has been a hot topic issue for decades. If you’ve ever wrestled with the abortion debate, Divided Hearts of America is a must-see movie. With more than thirty (30) insightful interviews, this documentary seeks to bring humanity and understanding to both sides of the story.” — Benjamin Watson, New England Patriots Tight End
Our nation is being torn apart. But what if there’s one big thing at the center of it all. In Divided Hearts of America, Super Bowl Champion and Executive Producer Benjamin Watson 1 goes on a journey to discover the truth about abortion, a subject that has been at the center of heated debates since the passage of Roe v. Wade in 1973.
The following is from an email sent by Dr. Monique Ruberusent 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!!!
Some very sad news from New Jersey. Please see the information from Marie Tasy, Executive Director of New Jersey Right to Life below. Marie asked that we spread the word about this proposed rule and the extreme, harmful pro-abortion policies of Governor Murphy and his administration.
The NJ Board of Medical Examiners voted unanimously yesterday to change the rules governing abortion. As stated in their Press release, proposed
regulatory changes include:
repealing the Termination of Pregnancy rule that singles out abortion care for targeted regulation by, among other things, requiring that all terminations of pregnancy be performed only by a physician, and barring office-based terminations beyond 14 weeks gestation;
clearing the path for Advanced Practice Nurses, Physician Assistants, and Certified Nurse Midwives and Certified Midwives to perform early aspiration terminations of pregnancy (in addition to medication-based termination of pregnancy, which is already permitted); and
updating the regulations to integrate reproductive care within the generally applicable rules designed to ensure the safety of patients who undergo surgery or special procedures in an office setting.
These proposed rules will be posted on-line in the New Jersey Register in the coming months and the public will have a chance to comment on this proposal.
This was obviously a stealth, backdoor plan which commenced with the election of Governor Murphy to adopt an extreme NY-style abortion law to accede to the demands of his abortion supporters. Contrary to the NJ Board of Medical Examiners’ false assertions, abortion is not a safe procedure and these proposed rules are sure to place women’s lives and health in danger. Through their actions, the NJ Board of Medical Examiners’ has clearly forfeited their credibility as an independent agency whose paramount responsibility is to protect the public’s health, safety, and welfare. The rules certainly don’t protect women, but instead protect those who shamefully seek to make a profit off of the bodies of women and the death of innocent children.
We will let you know when the comment period commences. Please spread the word about this proposed rule and the extreme, harmful pro-abortion policies of Governor Murphy and his administration.
The following news article was authored by John Wesley Reid and was published in the Christian Post.
At 5 a.m. on Saturday, pro-lifers in Baltimore and with Students for Life of America gathered to paint “black preborn lives matter,” covering the street with the large letters outside of a Planned Parenthood facility. The group called it a “success” after no arrests were made.
Police officers arrived on scene during the painting process on N. Howard St. in Baltimore. While they contacted the supervisor of the event to get more information, they did not arrest anyone or order anyone to vacate the area.
The officers were given shirts with “black preborn lives matter” printed on them, which they posed with for a photo.
During a similar pro-life painting event last month in Washington, D.C., two members of the SFLA community were arrested for using sidewalk chalk on a walkway outside of a Planned Parenthood. The chalk they were using had been approved by D.C. Metropolitan Police department before and the area they were drawing on was not Planned Parenthood property.
SFLA said “legal action is underway” regarding the Washington arrests.
Before Saturday, SFLA sent a letter to Baltimore Mayor Bernard Young requesting a permit for the event. The permit was never granted or denied, an SFLA spokesperson told The Christian Post. The letter addressed other paintings of expression supported by Mayor Young and demanded that the same permission be granted for SFLA.
“City officials intervened to allow a Black Lives Matter artwork to continue to be displayed. We ask that our message of hope and a future – BLACK PREBORN LIVES MATTER – receive the same support and respect in Baltimore. We are asking you, Mayor Young, to respond promptly to our permit with permission to add our message in favor of the dignity of Black preborn life to the public forum of the city streets, which you have opened to others,” the letter stated.
The letter further suggested that to allow some forms of protected speech and not others is unmerited discrimination:
“You must allow SFLA and FDF to paint its BLACK PREBORN LIVES MATTER message. Your original decision to paint ‘Black Lives Matter’ on the street may very well be government speech. However, your decision to allow private citizens to paint additional messages such as ‘Defund the Police’ and ‘Black Trans Lives Matter’ and to intervene on behalf of a public display of another’s speech indicates that public areas are now an open forum for free speech. You are not permitted to discriminate on the basis of viewpoint in making determinations relating to public assemblies in public fora. The message of the preborn will not be silenced.”
The following is from an email blast sent by Kristan Hawkins, President of Students for Life of America.
I want to invite you to a special pro-life, virtual event thisTuesday (September 8th) featuring one of Pennsylvania’s pro-life champions!
On Tuesday evening at 6PM EST, canyou join Students for Life Action and Drew Murray for aPro-Life Generation Roundtableon “Pursuing a Post-Roe Pennsylvania?”
Drew is running for Pennsylvania State House District 182, and his opponent is the infamous Brian Sims.
You remember PA Representative Sims right? He made headlines last year for harassing two young girls, Students for Life members, as they prayed outside of a Planned Parenthood facility in his Philadelphia district.
Drew has a solid pro-life record and will surely be an unwavering ally for the preborn if elected to the Pennsylvania State House. So, we would love for you to meet him and have the opportunity to ask him any questions you may have.
To register for the Pro-Life Generation PA Roundtable with Drew Murray, just click here.
At Students for Life Action, we are committed to enacting pro-life policies that will uphold the rights of the pre-born in Pennsylvania and working towards that day when abortion is unthinkable and illegal..
I hope you can join us this Tuesday, Sept 8th at 6pm EST!
