News notes from prayer warriors at the “front line” — pp’s abortion mill — yesterday, the killing day.

NOTE from Jim Coon:
We may want to mention the 45 parishioners from Our Lady of the Angels Catholic Church who contributed 83 prayer hours to help stop abortion yesterday at Planned Parenthood from 7:00 am through 5:00 pm.  Thanks!   
and from James…
I will add that it was wonderful to have so many joining us in our weekly pro-life hour of prayer.Next week (HOLY WEEK) that will include pro-life Stations of the Cross.  Please join us at 10:15.

TUESDAY VIGIL 4/9
From Linda
Dear Warriors for Life, Although a number of couples entered the building seemingly bent on ending their child’s life, which is always absolutely heartbreaking – with seven couples going through the back door and four through the front, we felt the presence of the Lord in a particularly strong way and we praise Him for it.  Many of God’s people gathered together in prayer and others circled the building holding signs while lifting up prayers.  Representatives from Our Lady of Angels, Beautiful Savior and the Christian Retreat – all part of the Forty Days for Life were there to pray for the babies, the mothers and fathers – even the workers – and to come against the gates of hell of abortion.  Even more amazing, we had several people who lived nearby who were moved by the Lord to stand with us in prayer. One couple, Micky and Randy were riding bikes and said they were moved to stop by to pray. They said that they had seen the movie Unplanned and knew that they could stand idly by no longer. Another man who lived in the apartments City Side was also moved by the Lord to come down and pray. Many of the people who came for Forty Days for Life said they would be back. Beautiful Savior, after visiting Community Pregnancy, being very impressed with their ministry, felt compelled to get actively involved with them. A number of people shared how moved they were with actually standing next to the building, knowing that babies were being killed that day.  The Lord is moving upon His people. Eyes and ears are being opened to the horror of abortion, and people are taking a stand. Hallelujah! However, we know that the bloodthirsty enemy of our souls will not stand idly by as His kingdom falls. Anger and rebellion are on the rise, as we witness horrible laws that are trying to be implemented. Horribly deceived people, pawns in Satan’s hands, are doing all they can to promote and advance the agenda of death.   We continue to pray for those who work in the abortion industry. I won’t say her name (because I would not want to embarrass her at this point in case PP some how gets a hold of this newsletter), but I was able to talk at length with one of the young workers we frequently see. She stood by her car right in front of me at the side driveway, and actually paused to listen. I encouraged her to take heart – to be bold and leave the abortion industry and get a job where she would have no regrets – “you know this is wrong”. I encouraged her to see the movie Unplanned, that is was a movie about people like her! She actually stopped for an instant as she was moving toward the building. The Lord gave me much compassion for her, and I called out as she was about to enter the building – “We care about you – we love you!” We must pray for her. I believe she is not comfortable in what she is doing. Power and position might be tempting, but we must pray she comes to realize it is not worth the price of her soul.  Bentley, James and I gave out literature and were able to talk to a number of couples entering the building. We can only pray that hearts were changed and some of them left without killing their children. The escorts were very aggressive, it seemed unusually so, at least in the front. One escort shielded a young woman from me, but she was still able to take the info. As he shuttled her to the front door, she looked back with a sad haunting look. Choice???? Not at this place!!! One young couple, after being in the clinic for maybe an hour (not long enough for a surgical abortion), stood by their car in the parking lot talking for quite a while. Thinking that maybe she had taken the first abortion pill or maybe they had decided not to have the abortion, we gave them all the information we could as we called across the parking lot to them. They left with our not knowing what was their situation. We can only give them to the Lord.  There was an incident in the front where Emily and I were confronted by a mother who parked in the side parking lot to take her 10 year old son across the street to the school. “I am prolife, but I am very offended that you are out here making my son uncomfortable” I asked her what she would have us do for if she was prolife, surely she would see the importance of what were doing – reaching out to mothers and fathers who were going in to kill their children on this day. She was a little unsettled when she realized they were doing abortions, but she was undaunted in thinking we were wrong. I told her we were sorry that she was offended. I apologized to her young son, but I told him that it was important that we were out there. He seemed more agreeable than his mother.  One prayer warrior who had never been to an abortion clinic was particularly moved by the fact that they were killing children. She was in tears as she shared her testimony with me. Years before she was planning on having an abortion when the night before she met with a counselor who talked her out of it. She was afraid to tell her mother she was pregnant out of wedlock and the child was biracial. She was so happy for within minutes her mother came around. Her son is now 29 years old and a wonderful young man. She got married and had one other child and later she and her husband adopted a biracial baby. We both laughed when she told me that their natural child when she was little asked, “Mommy, when am I going to get color?” God bless us all as we continue to fight the good fight of faith, wherever He has us stationed! Oh, I also want to add a thank you to all of you who came to the Father Unger reception at our house – and to those who sent their well wishes and greeting. A good group of us had a wonderful time of fellowship and were able to bless this man who gave so much of his time on the battle field of abortion. The contributions of food were fabulous 🙂 We were all blessed by just loving on each other. We will do it again some time for no other reason than it is good for His people to gather together apart from the gates of hell.  Farewell and travel mercies to all of our dear brothers and sisters who are traveling up to the summer homes. It is that time of the year! We will miss you, but you will be in our thoughts and prayers, as we look forward to seeing you again in the fall.

Tuesday Vigil 5/28 – Several Reports… and Photos (including one potential save)

FROM LINDA
Dear fellow warriors for life,
There are always mixed feelings after spending a morning on an abortion day at Planned Parenthood. Just knowing that people are actually killing innocent babies in the building before you brings emotions like helplessness and pain. Then, beholding the deep deception of escorts and workers who actually believe they are doing a service to men and women by doing their part in the killing of the children, is beyond comprehension. One top of that, because Planned Parenthood is located down the street from the Salvation Army, homeless people trying to get a meal and maybe a bed for the night line the streets and many times drift over to those of us ministering, looking for a hand out. What a climate for ministering! What a climate for reaching out on many fronts. How we must rely on the Holy Spirit to bring wisdom and discernment as we try to be the Lord’s hands and feet!
There are also other feelings of great joy as we meet weekly with likeminded brothers and sisters in Christ who love Him, the poor and deceived, and one another. We encourage and strengthen each other in the Lord, and are filled once again with His Spirit to be able to continue fighting the good fight of faith. The Lord is good, and we praise Him.
Possible save. . .
This day started with a young woman who drove past Bentley, myself, and Isa (and my young grand daughter, Nadia). She was followed by a young man who stopped and talked to first Bentley and then myself. He told us that he was meeting his girlfriend, who quickly walked over (with an escort) to direct him to park the car. He was nice and thoughtful. It was obviously the young woman’s choice to have the abortion. As they walked into the building, Isa cried out to them to reconsider. (See pictures.) We all did what we could and then gave them to the Lord. We praise Him. For within minutes, they exited the building, got into their car and drove off – the young man giving a polite wave. We praise the Lord; for whatever reason, their child was not killed today.
I had another encounter with a young man who was walking back and forth in the front of the building. When I approached him, he said that he was not here for an abortion. Later, Bentley and I saw him sitting outside the back of the building with a young woman. We prayed that they were reconsidering. We called out to them. (I think he lied to me.) I was also able to give out literature to a young woman who was dropped off in the front.
Encounter with David . . . 
We always pray for discernment when we are approached by the homeless people. Many of them are regulars we know by name. However, this day, a young man we had never seen before was just hanging out in front of PP and was obviously in a bad way. I was immediately drawn to him. By his outward appearance, he looked like he was mentally and physically challenged – he walked with a limp and it was clear he had pathetically wet his pants. I went to him and asked what was his situation. He told me that he had spina bifida and he had to wear diapers. With diapers in a bag in his hand, he shared that he was so embarrassed that he had an odor and couldn’t get changed. He wanted to get into the Salvation Army, but had no money. He hadn’t eaten in three days. I believed him; he looked terrible. Paula, who was standing near, and I gave him money for food and three nights at the Salvation Army. I encouraged him to get into the program and get the help he needed. He had admitted that he had a drug problem and his parents were done with him. He told me that he was a believer. I believed him in that as well. He hugged me and I kissed him on his cheek and prayed that he would get the help he needed. I started to cry and told him that he needed to trust the Lord to the end – that someday he would get a new body and the pain of this life would be over. Stench and all, he was precious to me – I knew that had to be the Lord’s grace. My heart breaks for him still as I write this now. His name is David.
Encounter with Christine . . .
Then there was our regular, Christine, who always makes her rounds. She usually has a wily smile and continually asks for money.  But this day was different. She could hardly talk. She had a nasty bruise on her eye, and had absolutely nothing on her top except for a towel that covered her breasts. I just looked at her and asked her what was going on  – that she looked terrible. She told me that she didn’t know what had happened, but that she needed help. I guessed that she was on drugs. She said she couldn’t talk because she was terribly thirsty. Probably the effects of the drugs. But, I just praise the Lord because I had her follow me to my car where I happened to have a bottle of water, and in my bag that was going to the mission I had one lady’s top. I helped her get it on and she thanked me and then walked off.
Once again, we had some wonderful new people that the Lord led to the gates of hell of abortion at Planned Parenthood. (See pictures) Hearts are being moved to join the battle for life. My little nine=year-old granddaughter, Nadia, was dressed and ready to go with me this morning. She is brokenhearted about the thought of people aborting precious babies and was eager to all she could to save them. Bentley’s friend, Sierra, and her mother joined us. They both stood and wept as they witnessed men and women enter PP bent on killing their children. It is quite raw when you first encounter such horror. But the Lord is good and we praise Him for opening our and others’ eyes and hearts.
We had some very good prayer times this day, and you could feel the Holy Spirit this morning.
Our faithful counselors, Margaret and Bentley will give their accounts. God bless all of our counselors, prayer warriors and sign holders.
In Jesus name,
Linda
FROM BENTLEY 
11 couples came through the side gate and main parking lot combined, plus 1 couple and 1 woman that was dropped off that Linda saw come in the front.  (Another one or two came later in front; Kim gave literature to one of them.)
There were also about 3 women that came for birth control. 2 ladies came together, and the lady in the passenger seat said “I’m not coming to kill a baby, just to get my birth control removed (so that means IUD or implant removal). They took information, as did one of the other ladies coming for birth control, who became very sober when I told her about the abortions happening right now inside the building.
About 3 of the couples that came for abortions also stopped to take info, including the couple that Linda talked about, that took info, went inside for a minute, came out and drove away. We aren’t sure what happened there, but they didn’t have an abortion today. Praise the Lord! In the picture she took, I was handing the boyfriend a model of a baby 12 weeks after conception. He was very kind and interested in what Linda and I were saying to him, and when he walked into Planned Parenthood with his girlfriend, he was carrying the pamphlets that I had given him.
Also, a man that used to live in the low cost housing next to PP stopped by to give me an update on a homeless woman that he had helped through her pregnancy. During the early part of her pregnancy, I gave him one of the gift bags to give to her. He used to give me updates on how things were going with her when he lived there, but I hadn’t heard anything for a while. He said her baby was adopted into a loving family (that he thinks might be related to him) with other children in Iowa, and is doing great!
Bentley
FROM MARGARET
More action this week than last.  Three couples and two single girls went in.  I got to talk with one couple before the escorts intervened.  The girl said that they were only going in for testing.  I told them about the CPC next door and that it was for free.  They seemed interested until the escort got quite ” frisky” and reminded them and me that that we were ” blocking the driveway”.  A few other counselors tried to offer them help on their way in, but the escorts guided them “safely” in.

I did get to talk with one man as he exited the driveway.  He looked confused as I told him to try to get his lady out of there because both she and he would be suffering the rest of their lives.  He appeared to think it over and then pulled out – escorts yelling again!
Margaret
FROM JAMES
Want to thank Anita and Lynda for chipping in with sign holding duties, and again to invite anyone who likes to join Sylvia and I for pro-life prayer under the crucifix from about 11:15-11:15.  No need to be there the whole time.
I also note that I spoke at length to a young man named David who lives in the neighborhood and often passes on his bicycle – this was the first time he stopped to talk.  He was mostly pro-life and we had a good discussion as I was holding a sign.

Hello all Defenders of Life,

WOW, have things started moving across the country concerning the abortion issue!  I know I haven’t watched the news
one day in the last 2 weeks that there hasn’t been an interview, a debate of both sides, or just a mention of abortion.
In fact, it has happened here in Sarasota on the sidewalks of Central Ave. in front of Planned Parenthood this past Tuesday.
If you missed the ABC news story, click on the link to watch.  Give a hand to Rosie Coon for her great interview.
More good news! The movie, Unplanned, is showing again locally at the Parkway 8 Theater, located in the strip mall on the southeast corner of Lockwood Ridge and University Parkway. It is showing at 1:05, 4:05 & 7:05 until at least next Thursday.  These movies show at a discounted rate of about
$2.50 as well.  If you were not able to see it during the original showing dates, this is your chance to do so.  Please pass this along to your friends.
I’m also passing along a link from Live Action, for some great replies to the most common pro-choice arguments.  I especially like the one by Kirsten Watson on “My Body, My Choice,” but they are all good.  Those that fear that the legalization of abortion is hanging in the balance, are ramping up their protests against those of us who know
that every life is a human gift from God from the moment of conception.  We must find our strength in each other and continue to arm ourselves with the knowledge we need to change the hearts and minds of those that have not yet come to this realization.  We need to remind ourselves that we are in the majority; but a small percentage of us are doing the speaking for that majority.  It’s up to us to pass that strength on to others, to increase those numbers who are willing to take action in prayer, speech and presence on the sidewalks of Planned Parenthood.
I hope many of you were able to watch the live webinar this past Tues evening with Abby Johnson and four other former abortion clinic workers who have left and are now speaking on behalf of mothers and their babies about the real business Planned Parenthood is in.  After watching it, you can be sure that it has nothing to do with good “healthcare” for women.  This was especially true when listening to Adrienne Moton, who worked for Gosnell and spent two years in prison because of it.
I attended the Christian Family Coalition Breakfast a few weeks ago, and was energized by the founder, Anthony Verdugo.  It made me realize the importance of networking with others, outside of our circles, that have the same desires to end the killing of innocent children, along with the brainwashing of our youth, hoping to wipe pro-life
souls like us out by the next generation.  We were introduced to Phil Dann, sales manager at WWPR 1490 AM Radio in Tampa.  He would like to have your call-ins during his show on Wed. mornings to discuss life issues.  If you listen to him, and decide this is something you feel called to do, it would be another way of reaching many others out there with the truth.
For those of you who are not signed up with 40 Days for Life emails, Shawn Carney sent out a survey this week to be filled out by vigil participants to help them know what is working well and what is not.  If you don’t mind to take the time and answer a few questions, click on the survey monkey link.
May God continue to bless our efforts to respect and protect all Life,
 Tonya

Spring 40 Days For Life effort

See Rich Owens’ excellent summary of our first Sarasota spring 40 Days 4 Life effort spearheaded by Rich and Tonya McDonald.  They did a lot of work and thanks to them, all the disciples who came to the abortion mill and spent time in prayer, to the Holy Spirit, Who blessed all their efforts, expectant mothers were counseled and babies were saved. 

Defenders of Life

The Holy Spirit is on fire in Sarasota/Manatee!  The response for this first spring vigil has been inspiring.  In addition to those faithful churches and people who have participated in fall 40 Days for Life campaigns for years, there are eight new churches and more than 60 new volunteers, that I know about, likely many, many more, praying for Life.  Our goal was to pray 12 hours a day for 40 days outside of Planned Parenthood.  Together, we the body of Christ, prayed for 92% of these hours, which 40 Days for Life national said was “outstanding”.  The Candlelight Vigil on April 13 was truly a sight to see and a great blessing as about 200 people were in attendance in pray. Thank you and may God bless you for volunteering!

Let’s keep up the momentum that we have from the spring campaign, the movie Unplanned and the Candlelight vigil!! What is next? 

Some things you may wish to consider follow:

If you have not seen Unplanned, please consider going very soon.  We do not know how long the movie will be in theaters.  If you have seen the movie, consider going again and asking people to go with you.

If PP Sarasota closes, we celebrate!  If PP Sarasota stays open, we will have a fall vigil, starting Wednesday September 25 through Sunday November 3.  Please join us again and pray that we are experiencing the beginning of the end of abortion.

If you have not registered online with 40 Days for Life, please consider doing so.  https://40daysforlife.com/login/?redirect_to=https%3A%2F%2F40daysforlife.com%2F

You will receive their Updates, can signup for Day 41 magazine, a free magazine, and be invited to the April 30 Webcast that will summarize the spring campaign and talk about what is next.  There are weekly podcasts on different campaign and prolife topics that I have listened to and are of great help.  They run about 30-35 minutes each.  For example, this week’s podcast is “Abortion…and the week that changed the world–PODCAST Season 4, Episode 16”. https://40daysforlife.com/2019/04/16/abortion-and-the-week-that-changed-the-world-podcast-season-4-episode-16/

On Tuesday’s, which is surgical abortion day, every Tuesday all year long, there are pro-life groups other than 40 Days for Life in attendance outside of Sarasota Planned Parenthood.

One group holds signs to direct women to the pro-life Community Pregnancy Clinic (https://community4life.com/), the little grey building around the corner from PP.  I am a new volunteer with this group and we can use additional people to help.  If helping by holding their signs interests you, please contact Jim Coon, jamespatrickcoon@yahoo.com.  Currently we have two shifts, 9:00 to 10:30 and 10:30 to noon.  If enough new people join us, we could add a third shift or possibly consider holding signs on another day when many women enter Planned Parenthood.

If you would like to make a donation to the Community Pregnancy Clinic to help save babies, please contact Domenick Micillo, 239-262-6381dmicillo@community4life.com, Director of Development.

Another group is the sidewalk counselors.  They are trained and reach out to women on their way into the parking lot or front door to help women understand there are choices other than abortion.  They are trained as there are legal issues involved and there are periodic training sessions.  If you are interested in this ministry, please contact Linda McGlade, tmcglade@juno.com.

The Tuesday prayer group, headed by James Kurt, jameshkurt@gmail.com, starts about 10:15, usually with a rosary and the Stations of the Cross.  Other people come to pray on their own or in small groups.

On Saturday morning, there is a man, Terry, and his companion, they pray every week for about an hour, maybe a bit more, starting about 8:30 by the 8th Street driveway, then they move to across the street from the front of the building.

Gene Tischer is the head of Sarasota-Manatee Right to Life, http://smrighttolife.org/about/.  There you can see additional pro-life ministries that may be of interest. 

40 Days for Life has official status as a non-profit organization under section 501c3 of the United States tax code. As such, it is not permitted to participate in political campaigns.  However, as individuals we can, and should, participate in the political process as long as we do not reference 40 Days for Life.  Sarasota-Manatee Right to Life has a legislative alerts page.  In addition, Christian Family Coalition Florida, https://cfcflorida.net/about-us/, “To empower Families at the grassroots level to give them a voice in their government again!”, is a good source of information.  Alicia Vernon can help you with any questions, aliciaevernon@gmail.com

Another way to learn more is to read Shawn Carney’s book, “The Beginning of the End of Abortion”.   You can either see me for a copy or go to 40daysforlife.com to purchase a copy.

If you would like your church to be more involved in 40 Days for Life, consider having a conversation with your pastor.  If he is willing, I’d be happy to join you to explain more about what we do and how 40 Days for Life’s peaceful, lawful vigil is different.

Consider talking to your friends and relatives about 40 Days for Life.  See if any of them would join us once in the fall to witness to the love of Christ on the sidewalk outside of Planned Parenthood.  People who come once generally will come again.

For Life

Encouraging Story

A Message from JENNY CHERRY, one of our youngest sidewalk counselors.  Her very encouraging experience at the Fair was similar to one Sylvia and I had – first people we encountered on our second day was a young couple pushing a baby in a stroller, the mother pregnant.  They said two years ago Sarasota Medical Pregnancy had helped them with the birth of their first baby (in the stroller) and they were very appreciative.  But Jenny’s story is even better!

FROM JENNY
I wanted to share these stories to bring encouragement and knowledge bc I think this is what every Pro life person dreams of when they serve the Lord in this area:
1) All glory to God, on the last day of the Sarasota Fair grounds, I was serving at the Pro life table, and the moment I walked behind the table, something good in my soul “clicked” and instantly I went to work. I had no fear, people and children were stopping and coming up to the table, I was able to engage in conversation, with many people, youth and families; sadly many ladies and families turn way or ignore, but thankfully we had a young white couple from high school who chose to keep their beautiful baby. Not too much arguments this time.

However, the last encounter made all the time and years serving in God’s Pro-life areas worth it: a young lady, probably 19 years old, came pushing a stroller with a little 1 year old boy, and the grandmother right by her side. The girl told me this, “You all probably don’t remember me, but I came to the fair last year, it was my final year in high school and I was pregnant. I didn’t know what to do, I was thinking about it when I came to the fair and as I was walking around, I saw your table, the models and what you were saying to me, and that’s what convinced me to keep my baby, my son. My mother is so happy, I am so happy, I couldn’t imagine life without him. Thank you for what you are doing. I wanted you all to see him.”
This brought me instant joy like I couldn’t describe, I praised God and thanked her profusely for keeping her beautiful son. Her family is helping her, she finished school and is doing fine. I will never forget this encounter and I will NEVER stop serving on the Lord’s pro-life team. This encouraged me and put even more fire in my heart to fight to save babies’, women’s and men’s lives from abortion.
2) On Monday of this week, my friend Anne Marie and I signed up to pray for the 40 days for life from 9-10 am. And just as we were about to leave, a lady on a bicycle came up to us and said she had some questions. She spoke with an accent and said she was from Sweden, and wanted to know if PP gave the pill that would help prevent her daughter from getting pregnant. We said yes, but explained it could also kill a child as well as harm her daughter physcally and that going on the pill doesn’t guarantee her daughter not getting pregnant. We offered to bring her to our Pregnancy clinic which she seemed unaware of at the moment. She then asked if our clinic offered condoms to prevent pregnancies and we said no, we encourage abstinence, the safest way to prevent any unexpected pregnancies as well as potential STDS , AIDS as well as emotional damage, etc. 
The woman appeared shocked and said how ridiculous we were, and that in Sweden, they teach in public schools about how to use these things to prevent pregnancies and the women there have no problems whatsoever, no STDS, nothing. I asked what facts and resources she had to back that up, which she could not answer, nor did she want to answer my question that abstinence is the safest way to prevent all these things. 
Anyway, at the end, her last statement made it clear that she was aware of our clinic, was trying hard to discourage us verbally and that she was most likely working for PP and we were being staged, but we blessed her and prayed for her as she left. 

This encounter is important to learn from for several reasons:1) To always be ready, to be alert, even up to the final minute, when the “changing of the guard happened,” we still stayed and tried to answer her questions genuinely until we could see the truth behind what she was doing.2) To be as straightforward as possible. If they are asking questions that we know about PP, I think we should be honest in every way, don’t hide anything bc that makes you look suspicious. Instead acknowledge what they do, and include the full truth of what they do and then bring them to our clinic to show them what we really do.3) Be patient as you listen to the other side, love others as Christ did, bc “they will know they are Christians by their love.” I don’t think she can fault us for being kind, but toward the end, I spoke more firmly to explain why and what is wrong, more so bc I was continually interrupted. 
4) Jesus said, “Be as gentle as doves, but clever as serpents.” Let’s not be accusing, but be aware and not naive that the enemy is throwing out his workers in different ways and means. Be ready, don’t be afraid, even if you don’t have all the answers at the time, it’s okay. We’re here bc of the simple truth that PP is killing babies for money, selling their body parts and emotionally damaging women, men, families. It’s destroying our population as a whole and we’re not going to be able to sustain ourselves. If they cannot simply acknowledge and admit to that fact, they are in straight up denial. 
Which is why we are also there praying for them, that Jesus would open their eyes to the truth, just as He did for us so that we could become Pro-life. 5) I’m thankful Anne Marie was with me and I know it’s easy for conversations such as that to draw a crowd but just to let people know on our side, be careful bc if we become so big we might intimidate the other person in the wrong way. Please only let the one or two involved talk, and if they don’t know an answer, then yes, let someone else speak with love and gentleness/firmness. 

And after the conversation, it’s easy for us to be on the sidewalk talking and retalking about it, but be careful too bc this can appear really childish, it’s good to reflect and regroup and to encourage one another, but let’s not be overwhelmed by it either. Ask someone more experienced how to respond or ask for an answer to a question, then pray and go back out there. Our work isn’t done until PP is gone. 🙂
Thank you for taking time to read this,

Sincerely,
jenny cherry

UNPLANNED

March 29, 2019

I went to see Unplanned last night at the Regal Hollywood Stadium 11, 1993 Main Street, Sarasota. My theater was sponsored by 40 Days 4 Life and the theater was full. Sarasota Medical Pregnancy sponsored two more theaters, and both were full. There was also a fourth theater showing Unplanned and this was 3/4 full!

The movie is also at the AMC Bradenton 20, 2507 53rd Ave. E. (SR 70) and at the AMC Sarasota 12, 8201 S. Tamiami Trail, (in the Westfield Sarasota Sq. Mall).

This is a MUST SEE movie for all pro-life advocates. It lays bare —

1. The extent to which we can deceive ourselves into thinking evil is good. One of the abortion staff at planned parenthood says: “I’m Catholic, but I believe I’m doing God’s work here.”;

2. The pain a woman can experience during various abortion procedures and for years thereafter; and

3. Of great importance, the lies planned parenthood tells —

i. Their client about abortion itself and the good that will result from killing her child; and

ii. The pubic about its desire to reduce abortion when its main source of revenue is abortions. This “business line” is the main one that funds the few other “services” it provides its clients.

The movie is in our area until Wednesday; but if the crowds are good it will stay on for as long as it brings patrons into the theaters. Please go see this movie; eat and drink the concession products (the theaters main source of their revenue) and tell you friends to go also. This is the best opportunity I have ever seen to lay bare, and expose, the evil that is abortion and the evil empire that is planned parenthood.

The Truth shall set us free and Unplanned is a huge arrow in our quiver to do just that for millions of our fellow citizens.

Thank you, Our Father, for this movie and bless all of those who made it possible. Amen.
