PICTURES: FIVE Precious Babies – including TWINS – SAVED from Abortion!

Dear Friend of Life:

Sidewalk Advocates in over 147 locations across our country and world sacrifice countless hours standing on the sidewalk in front of abortion facilities each week, offering hope and help to women-in-crisis through the power of love and peaceful outreach.  Blistering hot sun or an avalanche of snow, they pray to reach as many hearts as possible.

Sometimes, it’s not easy.  Some locations deal with folks who mock them, shout at them, and try to prevent them from speaking to the women entering the abortion facility.  Despite any challenges they may face, our Sidewalk Advocates persevere for love of their preborn brothers and sisters — children they may never meet (though, sometimes, they do!).

The question they are most frequently asked?  Is it worth it?

Well, a picture is worth a thousand words, right? 

To see this precious baby, saved from abortion: YES, it is worth it!

And for Baby Israel (pictured below on left with mom on right), saved from abortion: YES, it is worth it!

And for Baby Madisyn (pictured below), saved from abortion: YES, it is worth it!

Most of the time, sidewalk advocacy is done on the sidewalk, then there are times it’s done virtually!  After seeing a Facebook post from a young, pregnant mom with twins asking for help, Tricia used her sidewalk advocacy skills to get her connected with the local resources!

EXCITEMENT: The twins were born February 1!  Tricia, one of our Sidewalk Advocates, shares the account below…

“So many of you have been following the story of my brave, new friend who — despite abuse from the father, abandonment from some family, homelessness and high pressures to abort — chose life for her precious twins. They were born yesterday at 1:52 pm.  Mom and babies couldn’t be better.

Many have you have done amazing things to help her.  Her situation now is that she has her own home, she is done with dad and he is in jail for a long time, she is in regular contact with her local pregnancy center which will help for at least 2 years, she takes parenting classes and has a support system for her own well being, her family members who tried to force abortion on her have softened hearts and are loving on her babies now, strangers (many of you) have helped her with baby supplies, she has been put in touch with resources and is learning to navigate them until she can work full time again, [and] her blanket business is making a little money for her (some of you have bought blankets).

This mommy is EMPOWERED, and she wants you to know that she is so grateful for your prayers, letters of encouragement, and for those who helped with material things.  I can’t wait to see what great things they will do.  For now she is just enjoying these little faces.  Hope you do, too!!!  Brantley, 4.13, boy on the left and Oakley, 3.14, girl on the right.  A little small but they are eating well…”

So yes, every challenge, every moment spent on the sidewalk is worth it —if it can save the life of even one of these precious babies, made in the image and likeness of God.  

Either way, we know that no time on the sidewalk is wasted: God is using us in ways unseen, at times, to plant seeds in the hearts of those at the abortion facility or those passing by.  Sometimes we witness those seeds blossom to evident victories on the sidewalk, and sometimes we look forward to the full realization of that impact once we are with Him.

Know that your prayers, financial support, and presence are making a profound difference!

Want to join us on the sidewalk?  Here are two great options…

1. Find a current Sidewalk Advocates for Life location near you (to get trained) at

2. Feel called to bring SAFL’s peaceful, prayerful sidewalk advocacy program to YOUR local community this spring?  Applications are open until 11:59 pm CST TONIGHT!

Every one of us has a role to play in ending abortion — whether we are a donor, trained Sidewalk Advocate (or peaceful sidewalk counselor), or prayer volunteer.  Thank you for saying “YES” to the call the Lord has placed on your heart and for the role you play in saving these precious children!

In Christ, for Life,

DEVOTIONAL (February 25 – March 10): “Lack of Faith?”

by Jeff Reedy, Shipping Coordinator, Sidewalk Advocates for Life

Verse: Jesus could not perform very many miracles there, except to lay hands on a few people and heal them. He was amazed at their lack of faith. – Mark 6:5-6

Reflection: That’s not the way we want to amaze Jesus, right?

How often is He wanting to perform miracles in our lives or in our communities, but our lack of faith leaves Him unable to do much, amazed at how little we believe. Would it not be better for us to amaze Him as did the centurion, with his great faith? 

God can do a great deal or not very much in our lives, depending on how much faith we put in Him.  And it only takes a mustard seed to go a long way.

Faith Challenge: Let’s ask God how we can get out of the way, allow Him to work more freely in our lives, and how He can help our faith grow in the process.

NEW VIDEO: Abortion workers, post-abortive mothers, and attorneys talk to the movement

Dear Friends:

We wanted to share with you a BRAND NEW video that we just posted via social media:

Here is the caption with the video, just to share a bit more of our heart…

“One of our greatest joys has been learning from former abortion workers who are now on our side of the fence: What won them over. What often swayed the hundreds or thousands of women they counseled to or away from an abortion decision.Simultaneously, we’ve benefited the counsel of pro-life attorneys who are experts in First Amendment rights or risk management as they’ve helped us guard and protect the sacred ministry on the sidewalk that has been entrusted to us and so many others.

After all, the enemy is smart and strategic; in turn, with prayer, we must use the best resources available to help save as many lives and eternal souls as possible.

In that spirit, out of great love and concern for pro-life ministry nationwide, we wanted to caution the pro-life community that a group is trying to recruit folks to break the law and enter abortion facilities. While the group might be well-meaning, modern-day, this approach is harmful to sidewalk ministry for many reasons; here are some of the greatest concerns:

(1) Such acts could lead to buffer zones throughout a city or state, wiping out peaceful prayer and sidewalk outreach right in front of abortion facilities, activities that are witnessing thousands upon thousands of lives saved each year. In our ministry alone, we count 14 sites now at risk for a buffer zone, even though they were not involved with these incidents;

(2) Pro-life individuals who don’t know any better risk going to federal prison after one offense or putting their life-saving organization or ministry at risk for being sued out of existence; and

(3) Research and testimony show it can greatly scare the abortion-minded women and workers we are trying to reach, leading to a deleterious effect on lives saved. Also, within a few minutes of a law-breaking event, the vast majority of abortion facilities are trained to go on lockdown and quickly pull women and companions to a back room, cutting off access and further opportunities for her to change her mind and receive our help — especially as the individual is then taken to jail.

To help explain what’s at stake in the battle for life, we interviewed three attorneys as well as four former abortion workers, three of whom have experienced abortion personally.

We invite you to take 20 minutes to watch this video so we can all work together to protect peaceful prayer vigils and sidewalk outreach. Thank you!”

Thanks so much for checking it out, and know we appreciate you!

In Christ,

Bethany Mistretta

Dear Friend of Life:

When we think about abortion in our hometown, sometimes, we’re overwhelmed.  We might feel a pull to get to the site to make a difference, peacefully and prayerfully, but we don’t even know where to begin.

What has worked well for others?  What doesn’t work?  Does a systematic plan matter?  Are other cities really seeing fruit from a prayer presence + outreach to abortion-minded moms on the sidewalk?

The community in Las Cruces, New Mexico asked those same questions when they received the devastating news that an abortion facility was opening in their community.

So, they did THREE KEY THINGS:  They prayed.  They talked to other cities + national groups where things appeared to be going well on the sidewalk.  And through God’s grace and that research, they made a plan for their community.

After running after that plan with everything in their heart for many months, they finally got the news: Their abortion facility was CLOSED!

Watch the 7-minute inspirational video story HERE:

Want to help save lives and close your local abortion facility? 

Knowing how busy you are, we developed a simple, time-tested, research-proven sidewalk advocacy training program  along with ready-made tools and full-time support  so you can be successful in reaching out to abortion-minded women and men through God’s amazing grace!  (Yes, we were created for busy people who want to make a difference!)

All you do is fill out a 5-minute application (where you pledge to be peaceful, prayerful and law-abiding), agree to a short phone conversation so we can answer your initial questions, and once approved, we ship you everything you need to quickly build a team of Sidewalk Advocates.  Then, we walk with you, answering your questions and troubleshooting challenges as you build and grow.

Applications to bring Sidewalk Advocates for Life to your community this spring are NOW OPEN through February 28 at!

DEVOTIONAL (February 1 – 25, 2018): “For the Good of Those Who Love Him”

by Jeff Reedy, Shipping Coordinator, Sidewalk Advocates for Life

Verse(s): “For we know that God works everything for the good of those who love Him, who are called according to His purpose.” – Romans 8:28

Reflection: The world seems to be in a tumult of scary news at times:  Political upheaval.  Police officers gunned down.  Terrorist acts.

And yet, we know that God works everything for our good. Everything!  No matter who is in the Oval Office …no matter what laws get passed in our nation. God works everything for good under Nero just as He does under Constantine. If we but turn to Him, we can trust that He will work everything out in the end.

An example of this comes immediately to mind: It’s such a beautiful thing to see a baby spared from abortion and given the opportunity for a full and happy life. It makes people wonder, what can I do to help save babies like this?

Well, that brings us to our second example: Sidewalk Advocates for Life has applications open this month!  You can learn how to bring this peaceful, lawful, incredibly effective program to your town or city and build a team of trained Sidewalk Advocates in front of your local abortion facility.

Ever wondered what you can do to make a difference in the world? To be part of God “working everything for our good?” Here’s your chance to be part of the solution!

Faith Challenge: Pray for God to work everything for good in our country and to begin with us, perhaps by bringingSidewalk Advocates for Life to YOUR area!

YOU can help END ABORTION in your community!

Dear Friend of Life:

People sometimes become discouraged when faced with the problem of abortion in their own community.  It can feel like a real David and Goliath battle.

One of the questions we receive most often is if a peaceful, prayerful outreach presence at an abortion facility can really make a difference.

Well… not only can it make a difference, but as we’ve witnessed repeatedly: by the grace of God, it can END ABORTION IN YOUR COMMUNITY!

Watch this inspiring video of how Chris, a dad and local businessman, helped shut down an abortion facility in his community:

Want to help save lives and close your local abortion facility? 

Knowing how busy you are, we developed a simple, time-tested, research-proven sidewalk advocacy training program  along with ready-made tools and full-time support  so you can be successful in reaching out to abortion-minded women and men through God’s amazing grace!  (Yes, we were created for busy people who want to make a difference!)

It only takes two easy steps to get started…

1. Fill out our 5-minute application (where you pledge to be peaceful, prayerful and law-abiding) at

2. Agree to a short phone conversation so we can answer your questions!

Still have questions?  No problem!

Our advice is to FIRST start with prayer: Am I called to bring sidewalk advocacy to our community?  Keep in mind that we have folks join us who have never been on the sidewalk all the way up to those who have been on the sidewalk for 30+ years!  (So many love the blessing of knowing that everything — the training, tools and support — is all ready when you are!)  Wherever you are in this journey, we’d love to be a blessing to you and your community!

SECOND, wherever you find yourself, we encourage you to gather more information.  Feel free to learn more at!  (And be sure to read our FAQs, too!)

Remember: All it takes is ONE PERSON’S YES to completely change the efforts for LIFE in a town or city!

WE MARCHED …and BIG THINGS around the corner!

Dear Friend of Life:

We are so thrilled and grateful to have had your prayerful support as we made our way both to the March for Life and Walk for Life West Coast the past couple weeks  the two biggest opportunities of the year to introduce our life-saving program to others!

Because of those two amazing trips, we now have greater opportunities to serve others in the mission God has given them to end abortion through the power of love in their local community.  Thank you for praying us forward!

While there, we also had a little fun to put the pro-life message front and center in the media: We made marching signs with a play off a popular Presidential slogan, “Make Unborn Babies Great Again!”.  (While our organization is strictly non-partisan, we utilized a little creative license because we knew it would be catchy!)

Even though we only made 150 of them, it just about went viral!  Breitbartand The Daily Signal named the sign as one of the top ones at the March for Life, and The Washington Post had the sign as the cover of one of theirMarch for Life stories  unbelievable!  (See  This allowed more folks to learn about sidewalkadvocacy in a unique and special way!

Also, we were able to do an interview during the March for Life on EWTN! Fast forward to 16:44 remaining, and catch me and Bethany (from our National Team) with one of our dear Program Advisors, Dr. Pat Castle (not Mike Castle…oops!) from LIFE Runners!  See:

In summary, what a JOY to witness and march with over 100,000 of our best friends!

As we settle back into the swing of things and look forward to what else the Lord has in store for 2018, I humbly ask for your prayers: We’ll be doing more in-depth strategic planning for this year, looking to take this ministry further than we ever have before for God’s glory.  There are some really exciting, life-saving plans in the works that I cannot write about now (hello, Planned Parenthood!), but trust us when we say we believe there are game-changers-in-the-making!

All in all, please pray that we honor God in all we do and put into action the best plans to help save the most lives possible for an end to abortion!

DEVOTIONAL (January 1 – 31, 2018): “Time and Revelation”

by Jeff Reedy, Shipping Coordinator, Sidewalk Advocates for Life

Verse(s): “Jesus went up the mountain and summoned those whom He wanted, and they came to Him. He appointed Twelve, whom He also named Apostles, that they might be with Him and He might send them forth to preach and to have authority to drive out demons.” — Mark 3:13

Reflection: Jesus is calling us. He is summoning you for some important work that He wants you to do.

When we go on to read the rest of the story, we see clearly that the disciples were first called to be with Him. That’s what all of us are called to above anything else. Every disciple who followed Jesus was called to “be with Him.” And when we’re with Him, He reveals to us very important things that we wouldn’t otherwise have the grace of knowing — things essential for our unique mission in life.

Quite often, He shows us the gifts that He has already given us: Some of us are given the gift of having big hearts with a special mission to care for others. Some are given the gifts of healing. Some can write well. Some are given the gift of boldness through speech.

Whatever the gift He’s given you, He now wants you to use it. He calls us to be with Him, find our gifts, and then GO OUT to “preach and have authority to drive out demons.” We are all called to go out, sharing the love that He’s given us, pushing back the darkness.

Faith Challenge: Spend time “with Him” this week, and ask Him what gifts He’s given you that you might not have uncovered until now. And then ask Him to show you how to use your gifts in a greater way to drive back the darkness and spread His glorious light.

Meet up this week or next?

Dear Friend of Life,

P.S. – Also, THANK YOU for helping us achieve GOAL in our end-of-the-year financial campaign!  We are so grateful to enter 2018 with the resources needed to take our life-saving program to the next level!  WE APPRECIATE YOU!

A very Merry Christmas to you!

Dear Friend of Life:

We’re just a day away from one of the greatest times of the year, and we are reminded what a gift the Father has given us.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. (Luke 2:11)

It is a joyous time of year when Christians all around the world celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior.  We are reminded of the love our Lord has for us: that He chose to come to us in human form, born to a young mother willing to accept the blessing the Lord gave her, and sacrificed Himself for us.

We take this reminder with us as our Sidewalk Advocates continue to head out to abortion facilities all over the world in order to “meet others where they’re at” and love mothers-in-crisis into a decision for LIFE.  Whatever challenge a woman may be facing that brings her to an abortion facility, we are there to stand in the gap, speak words of peace into her life, and let her know that her life and the life within her is precious.

We remind her that we are with her, and God is with her.  She is not alone.

Frequently it is that quiet, peaceful outreach presence on the sidewalk that is a game-changer: a simple conversation that brings love and hope to a woman who otherwise feels her life has just turned upside down.

When God’s people pray, show up, and allow the Holy Spirit to speak through them, hearts and minds are changed …and lives are saved.

This Christmas season, we will be praising God for all He has done through your sacrificial support in the past 3.5 years…

  • 2,711 babies saved
  • 849 hopefuls
  • 291 turnaways
  • 49 workers who have left the business
  • 11 facilities that have closed their doors for good
  • countless conversations about chastity, pro-life healthcare alternatives and post-abortion healing

And we praise God for the gift of YOU, our dear partners in this great mission!

Thank you again for all of the prayers and support you give Sidewalk Advocates for Life as we seek to save lives, impact eternal souls, and end abortion through the power of love on the sidewalk at abortion facilities all around the United States and beyond!

From our National Team — Lauren, Bethany, Susan, Carie, Christina, Jenna, Nate & Jeff — as well as our Board of Directors — Juan, Elissa, Michael & Chris …have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

In His Love, for Life,

Lauren Muzyka
Executive Director
Sidewalk Advocates for Life

P.S. — Our end-of-the-year financial campaign is running until January 1, and we are currently short of goal.  If your heart is moved by this work, would you consider a gift of $10, $25, $100, $500, $1,000, $5,000 or more to help us close the gap?  You can make a tax-deductible gift of support …thank you from the bottom of our hearts!  We appreciate you!  Merry Christmas!

DEVOTIONAL (November 23 – December 31, 2017): “The World Turned Upside Down”

by Christina Faucett, Program Administrator, Sidewalk Advocates for Life

Verses: In the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. And the virgin’s name was Mary. And he came to her and said, “Greetings, O favored one, the Lord is with you!” But she was greatly troubled at the saying and tried to discern what sort of greeting this might be. And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end.” – Luke 1:26-33

Reflection: The world was saved by an unplanned pregnancy. I know it’s a bit cliché, but this is the season for remembering those things we have heard a hundred times before. We should remember how messy it was: an unwed mother, a father who wasn’t really the baby’s father – whom everyone must have considered either a sinner or a fool – a birth in a stable surrounded by animals and strangers, fleeing to a foreign country in terror in the middle of the night. It’s not the way any of us would choose to start a family, but it’s the way God choose to bring us into His.

It wasn’t really unplanned, of course. It had been planned from before the beginning of the world. It was foretold in the Garden of Eden: “[H]e will crush your head, and you will strike his heel,” (Genesis 3:15). But to everyone but God it must have been surprising. In the words of one of my favorite Christmas songs: such a strange way to save the world.

The birth of Christ turned the world upside down, starting with the lives of two ordinary small-town people. Two people willing to have their lives upended for the sake of a baby they were told would save his people from their sins.

For most women, the news that they are going to have a child isn’t brought by angels. For many, the news isn’t joy-bringing, but fear-instilling. Their life is about to change dramatically. No one is going to tell the man they love in a dream that he shouldn’t abandon them. No one is bringing gold to the birthing suite to pay the hospital bill. They may feel just as alone and scared as Mary must have felt in a strange town with no family and friends to support her. But the same truth the angel told Mary is true for all women: the Lord is with you. God may have made the lives of the Holy Family more chaotic than they planned, but He also provided for them every step of the way. He used everyone from poor shepherds to rich kings to do it.

Faith Challenge: We may be neither kings nor shepherds. No angelic choir or strange star may guide our path, but we can still heed the voice of the Lord when He calls us to help the single mother, to encourage the poor father, to take in the stranger, or simply to come and marvel at the newborn baby. Life is unpredictable and often scary. Things don’t go the way we planned. But God is always there, whether in the form of an angelic message, or a simple manger in which to rest our head.

A baby — saved from abortion — who will be born the day after Christmas…

Dear Friend of Life:

Susan on our National Team recently paid a visit, as she so often does, to one of our locations-in-need, Stamford, CT, who was dealing with great persecution on the sidewalk. 

While there that early summer morning, A COUPLE CHOSE LIFE!  Susan and the Stamford Sidewalk Advocates offered to take the family out for lunch to further encourage them and make a plan as to how they could make things work and welcome their second child with God’s joy!

Fast forward a couple of months. They got married!  Sidewalk Advocates for Life assisted them in moving into a new apartment, helped dad get a job, and got them connected with legal counsel to answer some questions.

This past Fall, Susan and the Sidewalk Advocates had the honor of throwing a baby shower for their BABY BOY due in December. Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, every single item on their baby registry was purchased.  There is nothing they are going to need for baby!

At the baby shower, Susan met mom’s grandmother  yes, the grand-grandmother of this baby boy  who prayed and fasted that someone would show up and convince her not to go through with it!  She even went so far as to sleep on the floor for several days as part of her fasting, offering it all up for her granddaughter and great-grandchild!  What an amazing, faithful lady.

Even though Susan doesn’t speak Spanish, they found a way to keep in touch regularly.  Mom tells Susan that she is her angel and that her entire family was saved that day.  

Susan was asked by Mom to be present for birth of her little boy!  She plans to wake up at 1:30 am on December 26, drive from Virginia to Connecticut, and suit up for the c-section at 11:00 am!  She was also asked to pick out his middle name, and Susan and her husband were invited to be his Godparents!

Such love.  Such trust.  Such a transformation from the sidewalk that day through the power of LOVE.  What a profound blessing. (We are so grateful to Tom, Noelle, and their team of Sidewalk Advocates in Stamford who said YES to God through this ministry and have chosen to persevere through many challenges on the sidewalk to realize this victory and so many others in their community!)

Friends, in short, THIS IS THE TYPE OF SIDEWALK ADVOCATE we are working to put in front of abortion facilities all over the country: Loving, peaceful, resourceful, trustworthy, and effective.

So many abortion facilities across our land don’t have advocates to redirect abortion-minded women and families to real help and hope.  We are the only organization working to cover all uncovered facilities as soon as possible!  So many communities are in need of our comprehensive training, tools, and support, but they don’t have the funds to cover their training materials.

To start and run a Sidewalk Advocates for Life location for one year, it’s about $400.  We never turn anyone away from this program… but that’s because until this point, your generous support has ensured our ministry can cover those materials if needed.

Right now, we are in our end-of-the-year campaign to keep our life-saving ministry going and growing in 2018, and we are EXACTLY $20,900 short of goal …andDEADLINE is TONIGHT at 11:59 pm CST.

If you are excited about the 2,711 BABIES SAVED FROM ABORTION in just 3.5 years, would you help us with an emergency gift today?

Here’s where you can make a life-saving, tax-deductible financial gift of any amount to give us a boost towards the finish line:

If we don’t make this goal — or come extremely close — something in our life-saving program will have to be cut …and with so much going right, we shudder to consider that.

LOVE is truly ending abortion, one mother, one family at a time: Help us achieve our goal to put advocates in front of every abortion facility in America and beyond to save more lives and end abortion!  Thank you all for supporting Sidewalk Advocates for Life and being a part of this incredible, life-saving journey with us!

We appreciate you!
