Sidewalk Advocates for Life Responds to Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why Abortion Episode

Netflix’s dishonest portrayal of sidewalk counseling is just another example of Hollywood’s pro-abortion propaganda

August 28, 2019

Netflix released season three of its teen drama, “13 Reasons Why” on August 23. The second episode, “If You’re Breathing, You’re a Liar” follows high schooler Chloe Rice as she faces an unexpected pregnancy and considers abortion.

While the episode accurately depicts many of the common emotions surrounding an unexpected pregnancy – issues thousands of real American women face every year – unfortunately for Netflix viewers, the subplot so grossly and inaccurately mischaracterizes modern-day sidewalk advocacy and sidewalk counseling in front of an abortion facility, that it can only be understood as abortion propaganda.

There is a “fake abortion clinic” where a manipulative “counselor” uses not-so-subtle psychological tactics to foment anxiety. There is an activist pretending to be a clinic escort in a deceitful, last-ditch effort to intimidate women using guilt and gore. These situations and characters are propagandistic caricatures that in no way represent what takes place on the sidewalk as American women in need of support meet Sidewalk Advocates and prayer volunteers before they make a final decision – or inside the many pregnancy resource centers we are proud to refer to.

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, more than 6,500 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.

Contrary to the scene Netflix is presenting to the viewer, women who have worked with our Sidewalk Advocates and community pregnancy resource centers often say that they felt, not manipulated or deceived, but grateful and empowered by information and resources. Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry are threatened by real choice because when women are presented with the truth about the many options available to them, they overwhelmingly choose life.

Netflix has made no effort to disguise their support of the abortion industry. Earlier this summer, the company announced it was “rethinking its investment” in Georgia in response to the state’s new abortion restrictions. Last year, another Netflix young adult show, Big Mouth, featured an entire episode called, “The Planned Parenthood Show,” which was evidently created after the president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Los Angeles explicitly requested that Hollywood create more proabortion content.

This show is just one more example of Hollywood’s free publicity for the abortion giant. Americans can expect more of the same from Netflix and the rest of their industry as they continue to partner with Planned Parenthood. In the meantime, we at Sidewalk Advocates for Life will continue to serve women and families facing unexpected pregnancies by providing them with accurate information about the many resources available to them, should they choose to parent or place their child in a loving home through adoption.

PHOTO: YOU DID IT!!!!!!!!!!

Dear Friend of Life:

YOU DID IT!!!!!!!!!!

I’m so sorry for the delay (while we waited for the last pledges by check to hit our mailbox so we could include them), but I’m thrilled to tell youThanks to YOUSidewalk Advocates for Lifemade goal in its Summer Matching Fund Campaign!

Yes, due to your many prayers and sacrifices, you got the total down to $2,500 remaining, and at the last moment, a donor in Texas came forward and said that he would cover the gap, allowing us to take full advantage of the matching fund!

Friend, I cannot tell you how many prayers we offered, hoping that we could realize this goal, knowing all that was at stake in our life-saving program  from the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU!

Meanwhile, during our Summer Financial Campaign, we got HUGE NEWS…

  • Abortion facility #15 is closing — with #16 pending!
  • Worker #64 left the business in the South with the help and witness of a Sidewalk Advocate; they were referred to And Then There Were None abortion worker ministry!  (Please pray for their healing journey in Christ!)
  • We are rapidly nearing another milestone: 7,000 BABIES SAVED!  And on July 11, Baby Leila was born to a mom helped by Sidewalk Advocates at one of our locations in the Northeast…


As you can see from this picture, when you invest your precious treasure into this ministry, through God’s amazing grace, there are HUGE, life-saving results!

Once again, thank you for hanging in there through our email updates that came a bit more frequently than usual so we could transparently keep you up to date on our progress all through the campaign.

So, you might be asking: What’s next We’re running, full steam ahead, working to cover as many additional abortion facilities in America as possible so that no abortion-minded mother walks through those doors, thinking abortion is her only option!

Together in partnership, let’s look forward to watching God multiply all He is doing to save lives and end abortion through the power of love at the darkest places in our communities — and celebrating more beautiful pictures like Leila’s!

THANK YOU AGAIN!

In Christ, for Life,

SHOCKER: States Loving INFANTICIDE? A Nation Divided Between Life And Death…

Dear Friend of Life,

These are fascinating times to be involved in pro-life ministry. The heart of Esther 4:14 comes to mind: Can you not shake the feeling that you were created for such a time as this?

Nearly every day it seems abortion is in the headlines.

One day, it’s a state like Illinois sweeping any and all abortion restrictions off their books; the next day, news that the Supreme Court has ruled that the bodies of aborted children deserve to be treated with the same respect and dignity as any other human remains. We hear the incredible news that Missouri may be about to become the first abortion-free state in America, then the disappointing news that a judge has blocked the enforcement of Missouri’s basic health and safety regulations designed to protect women from grievous harm …of course, in order to protect the last remaining abortion facility in the state.

The stories are coming at such a pace it’s hard to keep up with them all, but one thing is clear: The battle lines are being drawn for the biggest fight over abortion since 1973, in preparation for Roe v. Wade being overturned and sent back to the states.

These days, there is a lot of talk about how America is becoming more and more divided – the vast difference between state laws on abortion makes this clear. There is a massive, un-traversable chasm between banning abortion in almost all cases and legalizing it in all cases, up to and including infanticide.

Some of us are thrilled at the laws being passed in our states to protect life; others of us are horrified and dismayed by our state government’s actions to protect abortion at all costs. For those living in deeply pro-abortion states, it is easy to feel dejected, even hopeless, at the news that your state is celebrating very late-term abortion and infanticide. Overturning Roe v. Wade has been the battle of two generations of pro-life activists, but sometimes it’s hard to get excited when you know that even that monumental victory, the overturning of Roe, won’t close down the abortion facility next door.

Don’t be discouraged.

The great news is that when Roe is overturned, your state will outlaw it or you’ll finally have a real chance to take your cause to the people and the local legislature to win one heart and mind at a time! Meanwhile, our job in the pro-life movement after Roe will be the same as it is today: To reach out to men and women considering abortion, to show them the way of life, to support the women we know who are faced with the challenge of single motherhood, and to ultimately make abortion unthinkable in our communities, whether abortion is legal or not.

We look forward to victory because we know that the light always conquers the darkness. We know that in Christ, death has been conquered by life, and through the power of the Holy Spirit we too can be part of bringing the victory of life to our city, state, and nation.

Will you join with us in bringing life to your community? Sidewalk Advocates for Life exists to bring hope and light to the darkest places in your community, your local abortion facility. To date, we have been blessed to witness nearly 6,500 babies saved through the help and witness of a Sidewalk Advocate. You can support our life-saving ministry by making a tax-deductible donation here.

Whether you are feeling hopeful or battle-weary, we invite you to join us as these two upcoming events – and we promise you will leave feeling refreshed, recharged, and ready for all ahead!

PICTURE: No Rape Exception In The New Alabama Abortion Ban? A Thought…

Dear Friend of Life:

All this talk of ‘no rape exception’ in the aftermath of the passage of the Alabama law, and a thought…

People have said awful things to my friend, Paula, who chose life for her son, Caleb, after gang rape at gunpoint. What’s even more interesting is that she wasn’t in the minority as some might have you believe: Most moms who conceive in rape choose life and choose to parent.

The folks who are calling children conceived in rape  these precious human beings, no different from anyone else  names have one thing in common: They are very broken, hurting people.

You see, they are saying awful things to Paula because they are wrestling with the fact that they didn’t choose life in a financial issue when she chose life after rape. They didn’t stand up to the boyfriend pressuring them when she chose life after being held at gunpoint. They didn’t choose life in a career or school conflict when she chose life in one of the so-called ‘exceptions.’

The truth that we need to share with the world is that there is no condemnation here. Because, you see, I made decisions where I didn’t listen to my heart — where I didn’t choose what was right.

I fell short. Terribly short. 

I’m not perfect, and I don’t expect others to be — especially in a crisis — or I heap condemnation upon myself. That doesn’t mean that we don’t call each other to do right, it just means we are very careful to point fingers.

Welcome to humanity.

Instead, my prayer is that these folks realize that there is no condemnation to those who choose Christ. He wills their healing and restoration. Paula serves not as a representative who condemns them, but as a message of hope that when circumstances aren’t ideal, we all have the power to choose better.

(Photo credit: Paula K. Peyton, Pro-Life Speaker)

If you didn’t choose life before, welcome to humankind where, but for grace, we all fall short of the glory of God. In one situation or another, we all have failed to ‘choose life.’ We love you and we’re just all trying to do better and become the best version of ourselves.

So, pray for these folks who are saying awful things: Behind those awful words is a hurting human soul, desperately in need of Christ and the ministry of His Church which can set them free.

Blessings in Christ,

TIME TO CELEBRATE: 6,000 BABIES SAVED!!!

Dear Friend of Life:

We have some HUGE news for you!

We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve now witnessed OVER 6,000 BABIES SAVED!

In fact, the total number of babies saved is now 6,337 (and those are just the ones we know about) — praise God!  We cannot do it without the faithful outreach of our volunteer Advocates around the country and the world, along with YOUR prayers and support.

It’s hard to believe that just over five years ago we started with only a handful of locations, and now we are nearing 200 around the world!  What’s more, in the past month we have received an avalanche of interest in starting new Sidewalk Advocates for Life locations, thanks to people being powerfully moved by the movie Unplanned to get involved in pro-life ministry

The momentum and acceleration for LIFE is like nothing we’ve ever seen before!

Meanwhile, the other side is less than thrilled about it. No doubt, you have heard about the recent attack on peaceful, prayerful advocates outside of a Philadelphia Planned Parenthood by a state Representative.  Just this past Friday, our Executive Director, Lauren Muzyka, had the privilege of being in Philadelphia with numerous other pro-life leaders to stand up for the First Amendment rights of all those who reach out to women and men on the sidewalk, offering them hope and resources to choose life.

Watch Lauren’s powerful, 2 minute speech HERE.

(Photo credit: LIVE ACTION)

It’s no surprise that peaceful pro-life advocates are being targeted now more than ever.  Pro-choice activists can see the writing on the wall: heartbeat bills and other abortion restrictions being signed into law across the country, abortion facilities closing at a record pace, and the most pro-life Supreme Court since Roe v. Wade.

We are winning the fight for the culture of life, and they know it.  It’s no wonder they’ve resorted to screaming and harassing elderly grandmothers and teenage girls — they have no other tactics left! 

Were you inspired by the rally in Philadelphia to get more involved?  Want to stand up to bullies like Representative Sims?  Help save the next 1,000 babies through peaceful, prayerful, sidewalk advocacy!  

  • If you are not already a trained Sidewalk Advocate, consider signing up to become one today!  You can find a location near you at sidewalkadvocates.org/locations.
  • If there is no location in your community, will you consider standing in the gap between vulnerable women and the local abortion facility that preys on their fear for profit?  Applications to start a sidewalk advocacy team in your community are OPEN NOW!!  To begin the journey, go to: sidewalkadvocates.org/apply
  • For more information on our comprehensive training program and what we offer, see sidewalkadvocates.org/about/how-it-works/

If you are already a trained Advocate, or you simply want to fellowship with members of the pro-life community, we invite you to join us for one or both of these exciting upcoming events:

  • The Pro-Life Women’s Conference, June 21-23, in New Orleans, LA.  We have an extremely limited number of discounted tickets available exclusively through Sidewalk Advocates for Life!  Click here to register now before they sell out!
  • Our own Save Lives on the Sidewalk National Pro-Life Conference, October 11-13, in Dallas, TX.  Learn the most up-to-date tips and strategies for reaching out to women and men considering abortion. Go to sidewalkadvocates.org/conference for details; click REGISTER to snag a discounted Early Bird ticket before it expires!

In whatever role you are called to play, thank you for standing up for the cause of LIFE in your community and letting the world know we are here, and we will not back down!

Something BIG Is Happening In The Pro-Life Movement…

Dear Friend of Life:

Something BIG is happening right now.

Since the release of the pro-life, blockbuster hit movie, Unplanned — the story of Former Planned Parenthood Director Abby Johnson — on March 29, Abby says she is waking up every morning to numerous emails from people who walked into the theater pro-choice and out pro-life.

Abby’s abortion worker ministry, And Then There Were None, is now helping at least another dozen workers who want to leave after seeing the movie!

40 Days for Life, during this last Spring campaign (which ended yesterday), reported dozens upon dozens of new volunteers who came out to pray for the first time after watching it.

And we in Sidewalk Advocates for Life are processing over 50 applications from folks who are interested in starting a life-saving location with our program, citing the movie as a huge motivator — which could be a sudden 30% increase in sites!

This movie is surely the “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” of abortion …and I cannot wait to see what else God will do!

The biggest thing Abby has shared with me?  All of this is happening because of YOU.

Because YOU bought tickets to see the movie, it has stayed in theaters this long.

Because YOU have said yes to life-saving activities like Sidewalk Advocates for Life, folks have had a place to go once they were convicted to do more.

And because YOU have supported our ministry and Abby’s, we have been able to help more women and workers than ever before!

One thing is clear: Without YOU, this new “springtime” in the pro-life movement  the greatest work on earth to help and save lives and souls  doesn’t happen.  (Yes, it’s by His grace all these things are happening, but our YES is precious to Him as He seeks to work through us!)

So, keep seeing the movie  and bring people with you.

And keep encouraging folks to get involved and support this life-saving work!

If you want to meet Abby Johnson and learn more from her regarding sidewalk advocacy and how to personally help more workers leave the business, join us for this upcoming event …and hurry, because a special ticket deal might pass you by!

Super Early Bird tickets for the Save Lives on the Sidewalk National Conference with Former Planned Parenthood Director Abby Johnson this October in Dallas, TX will expire TONIGHT, April 15 at 11:59 pm CST

Other speakers include…

  • David Bereit, Founder, 40 Days for Life
  • Steve Karlen, Campaign Director, 40 Days for Life
  • Joanna Hyatt, Strategic Partnerships, Live Action
  • Dr. Pat Castle, Founder / President, LIFE Runners
  • Josh Brahm, President, Equal Rights Institute
  • Paula Peyton, Save the One (whose son, Caleb, was conceived in gang rape)
…and myself, among others!

See sidewalkadvocates.org/conference for details; click REGISTER to snag a discountedSuper Early Bird ticket before it expires!

We look forward to seeing you in Dallas this Fall!

Indeed, we are seeing the miraculous unfold right before our eyes; let’s keep moving forward and giving Him our YES every step of the way!

She Watched “Unplanned” And Become Pro-Life…

Dear Friend of Life:

I know it’s Friday afternoon, but I HAD to share this with you.

Our National Outreach Coordinator, Nate, was at a showing this week for the new blockbuster pro-life film, Unplanned  the story of Former Planned Parenthood Director Abby Johnson  that just hit theaters, officially, today.  As one of the organizers of the showing, he let the crowd know that he would be available if anyone wanted to talk afterwards.

After the showing, a woman and man came up to him with tears in their eyes, explained that they were from the Central Florida Post, and that they had always considered themselves pro-choice.

What she said next Nate will never forget.

“The only way I can go back (to being pro-choice) is if any of that wasn’t true.”

The film hit her so hard that she told Nate she didn’t know how to put into words all that she was feeling and what direction to take her article on the movie.

Nate listened intently, and said, “At the very least, encourage people to see the movie.”

She agreed, and what came next was this article that has gone viral in the last 24 hours: A Pro-Choice Review of Pro-Life Film Unplanned

I’m not kidding when I say this: I believe that THIS film will do for abortion what “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” did to end slavery.

But the only way this film is successful and reaches the audience it needs to is if you do ONE THING: Go see it THIS weekend, opening weekend.

You can get your tickets here: https://unplannedtickets.com/

This weekend, Sidewalk Advocates for Life is hosting two SOLD OUT showings in the North Dallas area, and I’m already praying for everyone who will be present: That they will either get involved in the greatest human rights movement in the history of the world or take their life-saving work to the next level.

For God’s glory, let us pray!

In that spirit, there are two events coming up where you can do just that — but the opportunity to snag your spot is ending soon!

The Pro-Life Women’s Conference, happening this June in New Orleans, has $95 tickets, an offer that runs out at 11:59 pm CST THIS Sunday:  To redeem, click TICKETS at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/annual-pro-life-womens-confere…, then click “ENTER PROMOTIONAL CODE” in the upper right hand corner to enter SAFL2019 to get a discounted ticket!

Super Early Bird tickets for the Save Lives on the Sidewalk National Conference this October in Dallas, TX will expire on April 15!  To redeem, see sidewalkadvocates.org/conference for details; click REGISTER to snag a discounted Super Early Bird ticket before it expires!

Once you register for both events, forward your two email confirmations onto christina@sidewalkadvocates.org before April 1, and you’ll be entered into a drawing to win a $50 gift card to the store of your choice!  (Questions? Drop a line to Christina at christina@sidewalkadvocates.org!)

All in all, let’s pray, buckle up, and watch God move people to action this weekend and beyond!  Thanks so much!

Blessings in Christ,

As you know, we only ask for support when we really need help — and we certainly don’t want to leave any of this incredible generosity sitting on the table!

If God is moving your heart to make a special or monthly, tax-deductible gift of support — with the opportunity to double it instantly! — go now to:sidewalkadvocates.org/donate

We are very grateful that God has provided this amazing opportunity to multiply His LIFE-SAVING work as we seek to END ABORTION through the power of His love at abortion facilities all over our great nation and beyond! (Please be sure to watch our progress on our Facebook page or webpage, as well!)

Thank you for your support at this crucial time in history!

Blessings in Christ,
