Spring 40 Days for Life is just about here!  Our kickoff event will be held on Wednesday February 26 at 11:00 in the parking lot of the Community Pregnancy Clinic (CPCI), around the corner from Sarasota Planned Parenthood.  May God let this campaign, through our prayer and fasting, be the campaign that Sarasota Planned Parenthood closes its doors forever!!

The guest speakers will be Pam Stenzel of CPCI and Dr Gerard Nadal.  Dr Nadal is a prolife professor, scientist and featured columnist for Headline Bistro and LifeSiteNews.com.  As president and CEO of the Coalition on Abortion and Breast Cancer, he is active in several prolife initiatives, including Pope John Paul the Great Bioethics Commission and being the first National Director of Medical Students for Life. 

Please invite everybody and let’s have a great showing to hear these inspiring speakers and get our spring campaign off to great start.  Our goal is Goal: 100% Hours Covered, 7am to 7pm, for 40 days straight, Ash Wednesday to Palm Sunday.

Every effort we make to bring an end to abortion, the greatest holocaust in history, is pleasing to God. It is true whether one says one prayer, or demonstrates against this evil – such as the March for Life, or writes letters to our congressmen or participates in 40 Days for Life. As Christians we cannot stand by idly as innocent lives are snuffed out in the womb.  It is never according to God’s Commandments to take any life which He creates.  We were created to be children of the Light; we must act that as children of Light.

Will we serve the Lord?  What amazing things will God do this campaign?  Lives saved?  Hearts and minds changed?  Will you make an appointment with God to pray on the sidewalk for the most innocent, defenseless among us?

Hope to see you on the 26th!

1973 Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton Decisions Legalized Abortion in the U.S. for theFull Nine Months of Pregnancy Prior to 1967, abortion was prohibited in all 50 states except when the mother’s life was in danger. Between 1967 and 1973, 18 states added further exceptions, mostly to allow abortion in cases of rape and incest, or for certain limited medical reasons, or on demand (New York). In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court rendered two decisions, Roe v. Wade 1 and Doe v. Bolton 2 which, taken together, have allowed legal abortion on demand at any stage of pregnancy in all 50 states. The two original decisions established legal abortion as follows: In the first three months of pregnancy, no one can interfere with a woman’s decision to abort her child. After the first three months, but before the “viability” of the unborn child, an individual state can enact laws to protect the health of the mother but cannot prohibit the abortion of the unborn child. After “viability” of the unborn child, an individual state can, if it chooses to do so, enact laws to protect the unborn child but abortion must be allowed if the life or “health” of the mother is at stake. The Supreme Court defined “health” as “the medical judgment that may be exercised in light of all factors – physical, emotional, psychological, familial, and the woman’s age –relevant to the well-being of the patient. All these factors may relate to health.” 2 Consequently, the broad definition of “health” has made abortion legal up to the moment of birth.
