Last week Friday a couple was about to turn into Planned Parenthood’s parking lot when they saw a Vigil for Life witness walking (and praying on) the sidewalk. Immediately upon seeing this witness for life the couple turned back to the street and kept driving past Planned Parenthood. As Abby Johnson has mentioned, 75% of appointments are not kept at abortion facilities that have people witnessing for life in front of them. Praise God!
Please bring your witness to the sidewalk this week.
Monday, 5/22 – 2 needed at 11a; 2 needed at 12p; 1 needed at 1p.
Tuesday, 5/23 – 1 needed at 9a and 1 needed at 2p.
Wednesday, 5/24 – 1 needed at 4p and 1 needed at 5p.
Thursday, 5/25 – 1 needed at 11a; 1 needed at 12p; 1 needed at 1p and 1 needed at 2p.
Friday, 5/26 – 1 needed at 12p and 1 needed at 1p.
SIDEWALK COUNSELOR TRAINING
Sidewalk counselors are the last line of defense for abortion or contraception-bound women and men. That might seem like a daunting task. Does it require an advanced degree, a license or some sort of certification?
It does not however a little sidewalk counselor training can help. If interested, call Gwen Finnegan at (608)393-8545
for all of the details.
GRISWOLD V. CONNECTICUT PRAYER VIGIL
June 7 marks the 52nd anniversary of the Supreme Court decision Griswold v. Connecticut, which set a legal precedent by claiming the Constitution grants women the “right to privacy” in matters of sexual practice. This paved the way for Roe v. Wade and abortion on demand. As in years past, Pro-Life Wisconsin affiliates will observe the day with prayer and a community presence outside abortion mills and birth control centers. Matt Sande, Legislative Director of Pro-Life Wisconsin, will lead this vigil. There will be an ice cream social at Culver’s by East Town Mall afterwards.
Visit thepillkills.com for more information. Pro-Life Wisconsin is a proud co-sponsor of American Life League’s Pill Kills nationwide events.
Prayer for forgiveness
Oh God of mercy and grace, as you hung on the hard wooden cross, you asked that those who were putting you to death might be forgiven. Please, Oh Lord, help us to offer that same forgiveness to those who participate in abortion, euthanasia, the destruction of embryonic life and who by other means violate the sanctity of human life, that in all things the world would know the height, the depth, the breadth, and width of your love, your mercy and your grace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
