PICTURE OF A BABY SAVED FROM ABORTION! Some Friday Morning Inspiration…

Dear Friend of Life:

In thanksgiving for all the support you’ve given us over the past few years, I wanted you to see a child YOU helped save from abortion!

Because of all you make possible through your sacrificial support, a few of us on the Sidewalk Advocates for Life National Team are able to work full-time, helping save lives from abortion.  With how much our ministry has grown, people are now regularly contacting us for advice regarding how to talk to a friend facing an unexpected pregnancy or connecting us directly with someone they know who has already set an abortion appointment.  It’s not uncommon for each of our national team members in our Programs’ department to be corresponding with a couple mothers-in-crisis at a time!  (By God’s grace, the majority of the time, these mothers choose LIFE!)

Several months ago, I was contacted by two wonderful women at Students for Life of America National, and they wanted help encouraging a young woman who had just set an appointment for a second-trimester abortion that Saturday.  Long story short, I personally got connected to this sweet mother and proceeded to let her know that we loved her, cared for her, and would be there every step of the way — that abortion hurts and we wanted to save her from that pain, and there was peace, freedom, and support on the other side of her YES to choosing life.

She already knew her baby was a little boy.

She was very receptive to my offer of help, but still very conflicted.  She ended up going to her abortion appointment while we stormed Heaven (and invited YOU to pray for her as well); at the last minute, she was unable to have the abortion due to extenuating circumstances …but even when she had the opportunity to choose abortion again, she declined and texted me back!

I still remember when she thanked me for the support — that it made all the difference in her changing her mind — and she said that our prayers “worked” and she was keeping her baby!

After almost 20 years of doing this, I can tell you that those words never get old.

I kept in touch with her over the next few months, continuing to encourage her.  Finally, I checked in again about a week ago, and she shared with me that her child had been recently born early, but the ultrasound was wrong…


What a surprise!  She proceeded to share with me how incredibly grateful she was for all our support and how much she loved her daughter!  (See a picture of Baby Avery, below!)

I rushed to the store to get her some lovely “pink” necessities, and ended up sending her this message of encouragement…

But make no mistake, YOU helped make this miracle possible. In fact, you’ve helped save nearly 8,000 additional lives in our 5.5 year history! YOU make it possible for us to build teams of peaceful, loving, well-trained Sidewalk Advocates at abortion facilities all over the nation and beyond so no one enters those facilities without knowing someone cares and has REAL help and hope.

YOU make it possible to get connected with women-in-crisis — whose abortion appointments loom — all over the nation.

Truly, we at Sidewalk Advocates for Life wouldn’t be able to do what we do without YOU.

Going forward, can I ask for your help?  We currently cover 28% of U.S. abortion facilities, but there are more facilities that don’t have anyone there. 

Because there’s no one to speak peace and truth into their situation, many mothers will choose to take the lives of their precious preborn children.

Will you help us build this ministry so we can reach more abortion-minded moms and save more children like Avery? 

You can make a difference TODAY by making a sacrificial, tax-deductible gift of $25, $100, $500, $2,500 or more in our year-end campaign HERE: sidewalkadvocates.org/donate

YOUR SUPPORT means the world to me — and often the difference of life and death for someone else.

Thank you for your partnership, dear friends, in this great mission to save lives and end abortion through the power of His love!

In Christ, for Life,

You’ll also hear the exciting announcement about a bonus matching fund, gifted to us by a wonderful group of pro-life advocates, to help us raise desperately-needed funds in the next few weeks as we work to cover 50% of all uncovered abortion facilities with peaceful, loving, well-trained Advocates by the end of 2020 to HELP END ABORTION …but we only get it if we hit our goal of $75,000!  (The deadline to contribute to the matching fund is Thursday, November 21, so we have just TWO WEEKS!)

Sidewalk Advocates for Life Supports its Jackson, Mississippi Members as They Legally Challenge New Buffer Zone Ordinance

October 31, 2019

Sidewalk Advocates for Life supports the four individual members of Sidewalk Advocates for Life – Jackson, Mississippi who have announced a challenge to the new Jackson city buffer and bubble zone ordinance.

Sidewalk Advocates for Life opposes all buffer zone regulations as they violate our peaceful volunteers’ First Amendment rights and serve as viewpoint discrimination, noting that any public concerns about unlawful conduct in front of an abortion facility can be addressed by enforcing existing laws already on the books.

The Jackson, Mississippi ordinance prohibits volunteers from approaching within eight feet of any person without consent, for the purpose of engaging in counseling, education, distributing leaflets, or other similar speech. It also bans volunteers from congregating within fifteen feet of the abortion facility.

Violations of the new ordinance could result in fines of up to $1,000 and 90 days in jail.

All Sidewalk Advocates for Life volunteers sign a pledge of integrity to emphasize their commitment to abide by the law on the sidewalk and conduct their outreach peacefully. The volunteers will maintain a presence in Jackson, and will make any necessary adjustments to their locations to comply with the law.

Similar regulations have been overturned in federal courts across the country, with the Supreme Court itself striking down many of these unnecessarily restrictive buffer and bubble zones throughout the years.

While this issue will likely be resolved after much time and many resources have been exhausted in court, the real cost is to the women served by the Jackson Sidewalk Advocates for Life.

While the new Jackson ordinance is directed towards protesters, it is written so broadly as to affect a variety of free speech, including the outreach of charitable organizations who offer free services such as pregnancy tests and ultrasounds like the Jackson Sidewalk Advocates. 

In the past five years, Sidewalk Advocates for Life has trained thousands of volunteers to go to abortion facilities to simply offer loving, life-affirming alternatives to abortion. In that time, nearly 7,000 women and families have freely chosen our help and given life to their children, relieved that someone was there to offer them other choices – and that number is growing every day.

“Women regularly accept our offer to help in the midst of an unexpected pregnancy,” said Pam Miller, Co-Leader of Sidewalk Advocates for Life – Jackson, Mississippi. “In fact, in partnership with other peaceful community members, more women than ever — at least 30 this year alone — have opted to take advantage of the free, alternative resources the Jackson community provides. We are committed to connecting women with the loving, life-affirming assistance they deserve, and we will continue to serve the women of Mississippi in a peaceful and law-abiding way.” 

The lawsuit was filed with the Mississippi Justice Institute in Hinds County Circuit Court. A copy of the complaint can be found here.

Dear Friend of Life:

Thanks to your prayers and support, it’s never a dull moment over here!

Just about every day, we receive news of a baby saved or other victory on the sidewalk — and I wanted to share with you one of the most moving stories we’ve ever received in our 5.5 year history!

Before I share, really quick, I wanted you to know that just over a week ago, alongside 18 amazing sponsors, we held the Second Annual Save Lives on the Sidewalk National Pro-Life Conference in Dallas …and according to attendees, it was nothing short of life-changing!  People were coming up to us all weekend with tears in their eyes, letting us know that they felt refreshed and renewed for the journey ahead; that they got some big questions answered that will help take their outreach on the sidewalk to the next level.  In short, God did a mighty work at this conference, and we couldn’t be more excited to see how He uses this event to save lives and end abortion going forward!

HERE’S THE BIG OPPORTUNITY: You can get a super discounted $99 ticket to the 2020 Save Lives on the Sidewalk National Pro-Life Conference on October 16-18, 2020 in Dallas ONLY through THIS Friday, October 25!  After this Friday, tickets will not re-open until February 2020, and we expect the price to jump about $20!

Go HERE to snag a Super Early Bird ticket before it disappears: https://sidewalkadvocatesforlife.regfox.com/save-lives-on-the-sidewalk-national-conference

This dynamic event grew this year, and we look forward to seeing many more of you there!

The story I’m about to share underscores why it’s so important we have this conference and continue to discuss what materials and support are most effective in encouraging abortion-bound women and men to pause and reconsider the life of their child.

This story comes to us from local leader, Monica, in the Midwest; she received the following note from an abortion-minded woman just a couple weeks ago…

“I just wanted to say thank you for the pink gift bag and note I received …at Planned Parenthood.  Saved my life, and saved my baby’s.  Thank you for being so kind.  I will not explain the situation I was in, but I will say I was guilted into going there.  They said I was 6 weeks, 6 days along, and they put me in room 6.  If that wasn’t God talking to me to say ‘don’t do that,’ then I don’t know what that was.  I have all the support from my loved ones, and I must add that even though I made a mistake that led to my situation, just being honest and not making even more mistakes to cover everything up has brought so many good things to my life this past week.  I thank you again, and I will forever cherish that note.”

Glory to God!!

For the sake of lives and souls, our goal at Sidewalk Advocates for Life is to build a life-saving team in front of every abortion facility in the United States and beyond; in fact, by the end of 2020, we’re working to add another 150 locations!  However, it costs our ministry about $2,000 per location per year to provide comprehensive training, tools, and full-time staff support, so we definitely need more support to get there.  Will you help us achieve this valiant goal for the sake of lives and souls by making a gift of $25, $100, $500 or more today at sidewalkadvocates.org/donate?

As we look to the end of 2019  truly, a miraculous year for life such as we’ve never seen before!  I hope you’ll partner with us going forward so we can look forward to an even more miraculous 2020!

Again, here’s where you can go to join us in this great mission: sidewalkadvocates.org/donate

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your ongoing prayers and support, dear friend!

In Christ, for Life,

VIDEO: The Formula That Will END Abortion…

Dear Friend of Life:

They didn’t have a massive team of people on the sidewalk.

They didn’t have a ton of money.

What they DID have was a mobile ultrasound unit, a couple people on the sidewalk, and a true passion to end abortion in their community.

This is the story of a small band of faithful pro-life advocates in San Antonio, Texas, who used a very simple formula to save lives and ultimately close down their local abortion facility.

First, they purchased a mobile ultrasound bus and made a connection with strong, prayerful sidewalk support. The advocates on the sidewalk were the ‘sales team for life,’ pointing women to free, immediate, and visible life-affirming help in the mobile ultrasound unit.

Second, they developed a close relationship with their local pregnancy resource center, so that women could be directed there for ongoing help and resources once they had made a decision to walk away from the abortion facility.

These simple steps saved the lives of over 1,000 precious babies in 16 months, and ultimately, shut down an abortion facility that had previously performed 1,000 abortions a year!

Because of their faithful witness, one advocate, Richard, got to meet one of the babies he helped to save. His reaction cannot be put into words! Click HERE to watch the inspiring video.

What the closing of the San Antonio abortion facility shows us is that it doesn’t take an army to storm the gates of Hell — all it takes is a few faithful souls willing to heed the call. 

Will you heed the call? Inspired that you can do more to help close your local abortion facility?

You can partner with us in three major ways:

First, you can become a Sidewalk Advocate. Find the Sidewalk Advocates for Life location in your community here. You can contact your local leader about upcoming training opportunities and start reaching out to women in crisis right in your own backyard. If there is no Sidewalk Advocates for Life presence at your local abortion facility, we invite you to start one! Applications to start a new location in your town or city are open now through August 31st. Go to sidewalkadvocates.org/apply to apply today.

Second, you can learn more about the best methods of reaching out to women and men on the sidewalk at our second annual Save Lives on the Sidewalk National Conference in Dallas, TX this October 11-13th. Hear informative and inspiring presentations from nationally-renowned pro-life speakers such as Abby Johnson, David Bereit, Josh Brahm, and Steve Karlen. Find out more and register at sidewalkadvocates.org/conference.

Third, you can support us through a life-saving gift. We rely on the generosity of donors like you to continue providing the comprehensive training, tools, and support our Sidewalk Advocates rely on to help them save lives and end abortion in their community. Will you consider a monthly gift of $25 or $50 today? To help our life-saving work grow, go to: sidewalkadvocates.org/donate.

Thank you, dear friend, for your prayers and sacrificial support as we seek to see each and every abortion facility in America shut down through the power of His love and the faithful witness of Sidewalk Advocates across the country!

In Christ, for LIFE,

Lauren Muzyka

THIS pro-life event will change your life…

Dear Friend of Life:

Maybe you opened this email and thought…

Really, Lauren?  The subject line of this email is a pretty bold statement to make!

But I’m absolutely serious.

I’m talking about the 2019 Save Lives on the Sidewalk National Pro-Life Conference in Dallas this October, hosted by us at Sidewalk Advocates for Life in partnership with 15 other amazing pro-life organizations that are changing the landscape for LIFE, peacefully and prayerfully…

…and discount Early Bird tickets expire TONIGHT at 11:59 pm CST!

But again, why would I say that this one event will change YOUR life?

In short, participants TOLD us that last year!

Lauren, this was like nothing I ever expected!  I had no idea this event was going to be like this!  It was a game-changer!

I’m leaving refreshed and ready to get back out to the sidewalk — THANK YOU for this event!

Lauren, you all HAVE to do this again next year.  I learned more than I thought possible!  I’m so excited!

And truly, it doesn’t matter whether you are someone who regularly goes to the sidewalk to reach out to abortion-minded women and men in hopes of helping save lives and end abortion in your community (though there’s no doubt that you’re going to learn more cutting-edge tips and strategies to bless your outreach than ever before) — because we live in a day and age where so many have experienced an unexpected pregnancy or abortion, we all must be at the ready to help the people around us with life-affirming resources to help save lives and bring healing to those who are hurting!

In fact, just the other day, I was at the local drugstore and saw a woman grab Plan B emergency contraception — which can cause an early abortion — and thankfully, I had crisis pregnancy information with me.  I talked to her on the way out the door about the concerns over Plan B and connected her with optionline.org to chat with a counselor online.  Believe it or not, she was so grateful!

So, here are my questions for you…

If a friend walked up to you and told you she was pregnant and considering abortion, would you know how to support her and offer her life-affirming resources in your community?  What if the woman is a minor — do you know how to connect her with legal support?

Being that it’s so pervasive today, do you know the signs of sex trafficking and how to help someone find a way out?

If you’re on the sidewalk in front of an abortion facility, do you know what you can and cannot do within the confines of your First Amendment rights?

When someone challenges you on why a woman shouldn’t have an abortion in the case of rape, do you know how to compassionately explain the harm abortion causes in this case?

Do you know how to help your neighbor who has had an abortion heal?

Are you interested in hearing from folks who do full-time pro-life work and how to make that leap?

Do you know about Right-Brain Research and how it guides all prolifers on the best type of messaging to help abortion-minded women?

Do you know how to form a strong relationship with your local pregnancy resource center?  What do you do when you want to send them someone and they’re not open?

And don’t forget about the dynamic fellowship with pro-life leaders and advocates across the country!  We’ll address all this and so much more!

Won’t you join us?  We’d love to meet you and bless the mission God has given YOU in the greatest human rights battle in history!
