From 40 Days For Life: DAY 2: Planned Parenthood's new abortion


Dear Deacon John,
Planned Parenthood equals abortion. As they go, so goes the abortion industry.
Of the 354 locations where 40 Days for Life campaigns are under way ... prayer vigils are taking place outside 134 Planned Parenthood offices.
Planned Parenthood is closing facilities at a record pace, but they are currently trying to expand their 320,000+ abortions per year with a new and dangerous procedure – telemed abortions.
In this highly unregulated procedure, a physician in one city "examines" a client in another city over the internet.
After a brief webcam interview, the client takes the first of two pills in the RU-486 abortion regimen. She is then sent away with the second pill, which she takes at home. Often alone. And that's where her abortion actually takes place ... without any medical supervision.
This "service" may be on its way to Planned Parenthood centers that do not currently offer abortions – maybe even one in your city.
Get the inside information on this type of abortion from former Planned Parenthood manager Sue Thayer on this 40 Days for Life podcast episode.
Whether there's a Planned Parenthood office in your community – or an independent abortion facility or a hospital where abortions take place – your prayers are crucial.
It's time to join the closest 40 Days for Life campaign!

Little Rock, Arkansas

"Cold weather – it's not just for northern campaigns!"
Steve Karlen, 40 Days for Life's North American campaign director, was on hand for "the strongest kickoff event in Little Rock in years." By the end of the kickoff, Steve said it was rainy and in the 30s.
A teenage praise and worship group provided music ... and a Catholic priest and Protestant pastor offered prayer as Little Rock's 13th campaign got rolling.
"This group prays throughout the year," Steve said. "On Friday, four mothers chose life – two of them already had money down for their appointments. This news was shared at the rally as encouragement for people to come out and make a difference during the campaign."


Flint, Michigan

"You just never know how great the power of God is!"
It had snowed for three days and schools had closed. "Looking out the window about an hour before the kickoff, I was doubtful that anyone, even my team, would make it," said Sarah, the local leader in Flint.
Some of the volunteers were snowed in and couldn't get out of their neighborhoods. But when it came time for the kickoff, "to my surprise we had 26 people who braved over 14 inches of snow to come to our event!"
There was one concession to the weather, however. The kickoff was held inside. But with dedication like that, it should be an awesome campaign in Flint!
In those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplying, there arose a complaint against the Hebrews by the Hellenists, because their widows were neglected in the daily distribution.
— Acts 6:1
Father, in the Church's desire to engage our communities with the gospel, let us gain wisdom from those who have gone before us and cherish their experiences and perspectives. Help us to appreciate every soul in the body of Christ and minister properly to everybody.
