Pro-Life supporters came from Bucks and Montgomery counties to attend the Rally for Life at Warminster Planned Parenthood. The long sidewalk from the front driveway entrance to the rear driveway exit of PP was crowded with pro-lifers of all ages. The number of participants was over 200.
The event began with an opening prayer and pro-life message from Monsignor Joseph Gentilli, pastor of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Doylestown. Wendy Schettig of Chalfont Calvary Church led the gathering with the hymn Amazing Grace.
Other guest speakers included:
Rev. Bill Devlin, Redeem Ministries Pastor Chuck Wilson, New Hope Community Church Laura Gumbrecht, Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition Denise Wilcox, National Right to Life Diana Reimer, Susan B. Anthony List Wendy Schettig, Christian Music Ministry
Referring to the upcoming US Supreme Court decision in June, some speakers shared that 2022 should be the last time we would meet in front of Warminster PP.
Anne Ruegner, director of A Baby’s Breath in Warminster, attended the rally. Her ministry offers free services to women in a crisis pregnancy which include: counseling, pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, independence, classes, and housing. Her ministry has helped many moms choose life for their unborn babies.
Rev. Bill Devlin closed the Rally for Life with prayer. He then led us in the worship hymn, Hallelujah, with the last verse sung on our knees.
The Rally for Life was a glorifying God-centered event. It brought brothers and sisters in Christ together to prayerfully persevere in their efforts to restore the sanctity of life in the womb.
