MOVIE "UNPLANNED"

As you may have heard, there is an upcoming movie by the name of "Unplanned" which presents the powerful story of former Planned Parenthood director Abby Johnson and her conversion to being a leading Pro-life advocate. It also details the role 40 Days for Life played in that process.

Please try to attend the  theater showings starting March 29. The turnout for the first week is critical to prolonging its run in the theater.  It is important to enable as many people as possible to see this film as it will be very impactful in affecting people's attitudes toward abortion.

STAND OUT FOR LIFE

Saturday Morning, May 25, 2019 from 9:00 - 10:30 AM outside the downtown Planned Parenthood abortion facility (114 University Ave. 14605).  We stand in love for the children in the womb being killed, the pregnant moms in need being exploited and wounded by the lie of abortion, and even for the abortionist and all abortion workers.

Together we can point the way to real help and support. Love will end abortion. The media, community leaders, and elected officials can ignore a gathering of 100 of us; but what about 500; what about 1000? Together we can make a big difference if we are willing to put our pro-life convictions into action by participating in this monthly event of Christian unity, prayer and peaceful public witness for the end of abortion. Do not be afraid and do not be ashamed Come, Stand Out for Life. You are needed!  Save the dates of future Stand Outs:6/22, 7/27
