The rain held off and the sun even tried to peak out over the Prayer Vigil and Jericho March to protest planned parenthood, ask for God’s help to defund pp and ultimately end abortion. Several dozen came out on this Saturday morning despite the forecast and early sprinkles. KDKA TV covered the event and interviewed Jeannie F. who emphasized that tax dollars are not to be taken away from women in need rather that should be redirected away from pp to Federally Qualified Health Centers of which there are 12 within a 5 mile radius of pp. She emphasized that solution to dealing with women in crisis is to deal with the crisis be it material needs, pressure or perceived lack of options and not abort the child. She also brought a carload of great signs that boldly and clearly witnessed to our purpose.
In closing those participating were asked to continue to Pray to End Abortion and to contact their U.S. Senators and Congressmen and ask that they pass legislation to defund planned parenthood.
My Thanks to all who came out despite the weather and concerns over counter protests. Thanks also to those who couldn’t come but prayed for us.
