giving some booties away

The abortion numbers for this past Saturday was 21 (keep in mind that all abortions must now be done @ the Babcock clinic). There was a good number of us out there for the first 4 hours or so, but things really thinned out after 11. Thanks to everyone who was out there throughout the week, you all certainly made a difference. The cumulative average of abortions per day (since December of 2007) has fallen to 24.8 with 187 less abortions at this clinic than during the same time frame in 2008.

Overall, there was a lot of activity particularly among the loved ones of the abortive minded women, with some of them brought to tears because they felt helpless in their efforts to offer any sort of emotional support to the expecting mothers.

Some great news from Tammy follows:

Hey everyone,

Quick follow-up on Sat.  It looked like an unusually busy day at PP–which was very disheartening.  I arrived around 10 AM to a packed lot, but with many prayer warriors and some dynamic counseling in progress ( Shannon, Amber, Jeff, Frank-others?)

As Shannon was leaving, she offered to give me one of her little gift packages of booties, blanket, etc.  I happily took one, but wondered when I would ever get the chance to give it away.  Well, time went on, and quite a few people had to leave.  Only Frank, Yolanda and I were left.  We kept trying to talk to anyone and everyone that came outside.  We had noticed a young couple talking outside, that had been there quite awhile.  They didn’t seem to pay us any mind whatsoever.  Finally, about 12:15, they headed for their car which was parked on the sidewalk side.  One last time I tried to get them to take some information–then, Yolanda called out “You weren’t considering abortion, were you?”  (or something like that).  Then, the young man rolled down the window and said that he would take the info.  I told him that I couldn’t walk on the black-top.  So, he smiles, gets out of the car, and tells us “Look, she was going to get an abortion, but she changed her mind!!”  I looked at her, and she was smiling also.  They took all the info about Allied and PCC–and Frank handed them some other pamphlets, also (about NFP,etc.).  Then, I remembered the booties, and reached in my bag, and gave them their first baby-gift!!  I also gave them the precious feet pin and the card with the info on the fetal development. It was an amazing encounter.

Thanks for all your hard work and prayers.  That couple definitely heard/saw many of you earlier in the morning. Your effort helped save a baby!!  Praise God!

Now, only one thing.  Shannon, can I get another pair of booties?

The next abortion day will be this coming Saturday.

Senate-Backed Stimulus Bill Contains Birth Control Bailout for Planned Parenthood

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — The so-called economic stimulus bill the Senate approved on Tuesday contains a bailout package for Planned Parenthood that will give the abortion giant the ability to make hundreds of millions of dollars selling birth control at an inflated rate. Specifically, a provision buried deep in the legislation fixes a “legislative error” that Planned Parenthood claims raised the price of birth control. The error is a loophole President Bush removed that prevents the abortion business from purchasing birth control pills from pharmaceutical firms at a discounted rate and selling them to some women at highly-inflated prices. Naturally, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards was elated by the news. “We finally did it. It wasn’t easy, but after two long years of working with Congress, I’m happy to report [the provision was included],” Richards told supporters in an email. Richards made the provision appear as if it inflated the price of birth control for women even though the lack of the provision merely failed to give Planned Parenthood the ability to make an incredible profit on selling birth contorl drugs. Planned Parenthood emailed its supporters on the so-called error before and claimed college students need the funding because they’re supposedly choosing between birth control and groceries. “Birth control pills or dinner? Pills or a tank of gas? That’s the decision college students and low-income women are facing around the country,” Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards says. But Wendy Wright, the president of Concerned Women for America, told LifeNews.com that Planned Parenthood painted a false picture. “If it is truly a choice between groceries and birth control pills, then many women will make the responsible choice to not engage in sexual activity – an overall healthier decision,” she said. “Women will not only not get pregnant, they won’t be at risk of sexually-transmitted diseases and emotional entanglements.” Wright pointed out that Planned Parenthood gets hundreds of millions of dollars from the federal and state governments. She said the abortion business, which posted over $1 billion in income in its last fiscal year report, should pay for the birth control itself for these women in supposedly dire situations. “Planned Parenthood could dip into its swollen bank accounts to subsidize the birth control pills,” she said. Wright also noted that Planned Parenthood puts a huge markup on the cost of birth control pills, so much so that it caused controversy in California.

This spring, from February 25 – April 5 of 2009, San Antonio will be uniting with other cities across North America and around the world for a massive coordinated pro-life mobilization – the 40 Days for Life campaign. People of faith are praying that, with God’s help, this effort will help bring an end to the tragedy of abortion.

40 Days for Life is a focused pro-life campaign that has generated measurable lifesaving results in more than 200 cities where it has been implemented. Some locations have reported as much as a 28% drop in local abortion numbers and hundreds of new people getting involved in local lifesaving ministry efforts. The 40 Days for Life campaign is made up of three key components:

·         Prayer and Fasting: inviting people of faith throughout San Antonio and South Texas to join together for 40 days of fervent prayer and fasting for an end to abortion

·         Peaceful Vigil: standing for life through a 40-day peaceful public witness outside the local Planned Parenthood at 104 Babcock (the corner of Babcock and Fredericksburg) from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM for the duration of the campaign.

·         Community Outreach: taking a positive, upbeat pro-life message to every corner of our city through media efforts, church presentations, petition drives, and public visibility.
