40 Days for Life Spring 2018 campaign is over…thanks to all who participated!

The sidewalk in front of Planned Parenthood will seem empty now that 40 Day for Life is over.

It is always bittersweet when a campaign ends.  It is difficult to maintain a 40 day, 12-hour-per-day vigil…and we do need a break…but it is hard to say goodbye.  Especially when we know that people will continue to enter those sad doors of death, thinking that the solution to their crisis is to end the life of the child within their womb.

I am very thankful for everyone who sacrificed their time and comfort to come to the vigil, and for those who prayed and fasted!  There were 79 churches/groups who officially took part in our vigil, and many individuals who participated.  We know of one woman who changed her mind and chose life during our 40 days, and we found out about a baby that was saved because of our witness two years ago, that we never knew about!  We believe that God uses our presence on the sidewalk to save lives, change hearts and draw souls to Himself without us ever knowing about it most of the time.  The next 40 Days for Life will go from September 26th – November 4th.  

However, you don’t need to wait until September to stand up for life!  If you feel God tugging on your heart to do more, and feel called to become a regular sidewalk advocate, Kathy L. said that their numbers are getting pretty thin…and they could use some reinforcements!  Contact her at kathlaslow@yahoo.com to find out more information about how to get involved.  In addition, Meredith needs more people to pray at Magee Hospital as part of her “Magee Project”.  Contact her for more information at meredith@rescuepittsburgh.com

This Friday, come to Planned Parenthood at 10 am to pray the Stations of the Cross.  

Planned Parenthood does abortions on Good Friday, so we will be there, praying for those who are being led to their deaths…as we honor the passion of our Lord Jesus. (Sponsored by PCUC)  Prayer will end before 11am.

On April 28th, a PROTEST PP Rally will be held, as part of the nationwide effort to defund Planned Planned Parenthood.  Click the link below to open the flyer to get the details:

The media reported that tens of thousands of people showed up for Pittsburgh’s “March for Our Lives” rally this past Saturday.  Wouldn’t it be wonderful if even 100 individuals care enough to show up to defend innocent human life from abortion on April 28th?

Thank you for joining our efforts to save lives and to turn our culture back to one that respects ALL human life!

Your grateful sister in Christ,


Pastor Joe Stump, of Lincoln Place Church of the Nazarene led the closing prayer in front of Planned Parenthood, and spoke words of encouragement to us in the Welcome Center of Catholic Charities. He spoke of the need for national repentance. Our nation has been polluted by the shedding of innocent blood, and God’s blessing CANNOT be upon us until we have repented!
