Great news to end the year!


Dear Deacon,

I wasn't planning to send you a message today, but late
last night I couldn't go to sleep after reading some
GREAT news -- so I thought I'd share it with you to mark
the end of 2011, and to look forward to whatever great
things God has in store in 2012!

Ever since first getting involved in pro-life efforts in
1998 -- when Planned Parenthood announced plans to build
an abortion facility in my town -- one thing that has
always been a bit disheartening for me is when Planned
Parenthood releases its annual report.

Year after year, despite the best efforts of the
pro-life movement, Planned Parenthood's abortion numbers
and revenue dollars have continued to go up and up ...


The abortion giant just released the annual report for
its last fiscal year (2009-2010) and these numbers have
FINALLY begun to decline!

Here are the stats ...

Abortions at Planned Parenthood:
 * 2009: 331,796
 * DOWN in 2010: 329,445

Planned Parenthood Total Revenue (income):
 * 2009: $1.10 Billion
 * DOWN in 2010: $1.04 Billion

Now, I realize that these are not huge declines -- and
the abortion numbers still demonstrate a STAGGERING loss
of life -- but the tide has begun to turn.

And these numbers were from BEFORE 2011, a year the
abortion chain's president, Cecile Richards, just
described to abortion advocates as "the most difficult
year in our history."

40 Days for Life campaigns have been conducted outside
of more than 135 Planned Parenthood facilities this fall
alone, and it is clear that your prayers and faithful
efforts ARE paying off.

Let's commit to build on this momentum in 2012!

Know how much I appreciate you, Deacon. Hope you
and your family have a blessed New Year.

For Life,

David Bereit
National Director
40 Days for Life
