40 Days For Life: DAY 22: Why Planned Parenthood employees will see UNPLANNED



The most-anticipated pro-life film ever comes out this weekend!
Have you gotten tickets for Unplanned yet? If not, get them soon. Theaters are selling out quickly!
We've released a new podcast to get you fired up for the weekend! On this week's episode, Former Planned Parenthood Manager Sue Thayer, Steve Karlen, and I discuss:
  • Why Sue's experience working at Planned Parenthood leads her to believe Planned Parenthood employees will go see Unplanned this weekend
  • Why the MPAA slapped the film with an "R" rating...and why that shouldn't deter Christians from seeing it
  • How Unplanned will change the abortion landscape across the country

40 Days for Life Campaign Director Steve Karlen and Campaign Strategist Chris Davis recently toured vigils across the State of Wisconsin. Here's their report:

Milwaukee, Wisconsin

There's never a dull day at Milwaukee's vigil. The abortion facility is in a busy urban neighborhood. Aggressive abortion facility escorts try to make life difficult for sidewalk counselors. One abortion worker brought her young child to work--while she lobbed profanities at vigil participants.
While Chris addressed volunteers (in decidedly more encouraging ways), September, the local leader, saved a baby from abortion!
September's co-leader, Dan, suggested that wouldn't be the only baby saved. Sure enough, before Steve and Chris left town, a second baby was spared. The Milwaukee team now knows of ELEVEN abortions averted in the Cream City.

Kenosha, Wisconsin

A sign on the door at Kenosha's Planned Parenthood center reads, "No firearms or weapons allowed on the property."
There is, apparently, an exception to that rule. A man wearing a handgun walked right past Chris, Steve and a host of stunned prayer warriors.
Minutes later, he carried a bag out of the building...right to an armored truck--another reminder that abortion is big business.
In addition to 40 Days for Life volunteers, the vigil was attended by a reporter and photographer to put the event on the front page of the city's newspaper.

Sheybogan, Wisconsin

Bernice in Sheboygan is a widow, and her children are all grown. But she said it's clear God still has plans for her.
When Planned Parenthood opened a new abortion facility in Sheboygan last year, she responded by organizing a highly effective 40 Days for Life campaign. Those efforts continue to grow. New York's embrace of late-term abortion has motivated a number of first-time volunteers to hit the sidewalks.
The rally in Sheboygan was proof positive Bernice is making inroads in the community. Attended by Catholics, Protestants, a pair of Lutheran ministers, and a representative from the city's pregnancy help center, attendees were enthusiastic and quite motivated to end abortion in their city.

Stevens Point, Wisconsin

Dozens of pro-lifers braved a biting wind and muddy sidewalks to pray for an end to abortion in Stevens Point.
"It was awesome," wrote Jim and Gary who lead the campaign. "We even had a couple [drive] an hour and 45 minutes to join us."
That's the type of commitment that is bringing about the end of abortion!
Who among all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this, in His hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.
— Job 12:9-10
Thank you, Father God, for being the Creator of my life and every life. Please give me, and the society in which I live, an appreciation for your gift of life. Please help us set aside our pride and acknowledge that we need you. Show me how I can honor you today in response to all the blessings you bestow freely.
