Chris spoke about the heart-warming stories of lives saved with the abortion pill reversal through Women’s Choice Network Amy spoke about the need for prayer for all of us who are involved in this battle to save lives and souls. The persecution takes its toll on all of us. Especially pray for those workers who see the babies on the ultrasound and then are aborted anyway. They grieve these losses and it is a struggle to persevere, especially through the targeted persecution against pregnancy centers. She also reminded us of the importance of including fathers in the process of choosing life for their babies, and for giving young moms and dads a godly picture of marriage and parenting, which is so lacking in today’s culture. Pastor Jay Gilbert was a very inspiring speaker, as he shared the story of God leading him and his wife to open the new pregnancy resource center in East Liberty, just one block away from Allegheny Reproductive abortion center. They were unaware when they rented the space that it was actually the former location of the abortion facility! God has truly redeemed that space! Thank you pastor Jay! Regina Ranelli, Executive Director of Birthright of Pittsburgh shared the stories of many couples that she accompanies throughout their pregnancies and beyond. She even brought one of them with her! The gift that the team bought for me! Thank you! Thanks to the respect Life group at St. John Neumann for providing the refreshments and for hosting this event! Herb from Rehumanize International works to restore dignity to all human life and to end all violence against innocent life. Thank you Herb!
