News from the Trenches: A life saved because someone was there this morning to offer love and support.

21, trying to finish college, afraid to tell her father

Feminist Women's Health Center, Wright Street, Sacramento, Saturday, Nov. 19


(The following information was provided by veteran pro-life activist Wynette Sills in Sacramento.)

There is so much to be thankful for as we draw near to Thanksgiving! Just this morning, Saturday, Nov. 19, a young woman who was considering abortion changed her mind at Feminist Women's Health Center on Wright Street in Sacramento.

The young woman had a change of heart after talking with the people who were there praying and offering assistance.

The pro-life participants even took her to lunch at nearby Leatherby's, as she shared her story. She said she was 21 years old, trying to finish junior college, afraid to tell her father, but she has a supportive boyfriend, who loves her and wants to marry her.

Please pray for this young mother, who now has an appointment at the Sacramento Life Center on Monday.

A life saved because someone was there this morning to offer love and support.

Thank you to those faithful people who have continued to pray at Wright Street beyond our 40 Days. The need for a peaceful, prayerful, life-saving presence continues year-round, so please join us at 1750 Wright Street on abortion mornings.

The Wright Street abortion business will be closed on Thursday for Thanksgiving, but open the rest of the week for "business," moving their abortions to Tuesday, rather than Thursday.

This week we will be at 1750 Wright Street on Friday, Nov. 25, and Saturday, Nov. 26, from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Also, if you would like to help the families we have met “on the sidewalk” this past year with Thanksgiving and Christmas assistance, please let me know. Last week I was able to go shopping with one of the moms to get winter coats for her children and they were so very grateful. Gift cards to grocery stores, Walmart, and Target help. I can get the children’s clothing sizes, if someone would help me coordinate the gift gathering. Rent continues to be a concern for another mom whose baby boy is due at Thanksgiving, so please let me know if you would like to help. Call (916) 955-1577.

Thank you to everyone who helped with the beautiful closing celebration and Showers on Wheels Baby Shower at Our Lady of the Assumption Parish in Carmichael on Sunday, Nov. 20. A special thank you to Devonne, Bill, and Heather Keevers for the Showers on Wheels Ministry, St. Teresa of Avila Parish in Auburn and Presentation Parish Elementary School families for generous baby gifts. The Project Linus volunteers made Baby Blankets!
