Dear Friend of Life:

I felt like you could almost hear the outcry from people of common sense, faith, and conscience a month ago when New York legalized abortion until the point of birth.

Now, we have Rhode Island, Illinois (who also want you to PAY for it), Vermont, and more considering it?  What is this madness?!

It begs the questions: How many states are going to do this?  What can we do to STOP this?

To answer your questions, TOMORROW NIGHT, we are hosting an emergency, one-hour webcast event, “TURNING POINT,” with special guests…

  • Abby Johnson, Former Planned Parenthood Director
  • Martin Cannon, Esq., Senior Counsel, Thomas More Society
  • Christina Faucett, Esq., Program Administrator, Sidewalk Advocates for Life
  • another surprise guest

…and myself!


During the event, you will learn…

  • What THE NEW YORK LAW EXPANDING ABORTION UNTIL BIRTH really means for America — and what you can do to change the tide and help save lives…
  • All about THE NEW BLOCKBUSTER, PRO-LIFE MOVIE, UNPLANNEDabout to hit theaters in one month — why it will be devastating to the abortion industry and what you can do to accelerate its life-saving impact…
  • THREE HUGE ANNOUNCEMENTS that will share groundbreaking strategic plans to HELP SAVE MORE LIVES than ever before…
  • And HOW YOU CAN BE A PART OF ENDING ABORTION right in your town or city!


Here are the important details, once again…

Why are we peaceful, prayerful, law-abiding, and woman-oriented?

Dear Friend of Life:

I was sitting here this Sunday evening, reflecting on all the unbelievable victories we at Sidewalk Advocates for Life have witnessed through God’s grace in just over 4.5 years of peaceful outreach to women-in-crisis on the sidewalk.

It’s sometimes hard to believe that almost 6,000 women have taken us up on our offer of help in front of abortion facilities all over the U.S. and the world and chosen life for their precious children!

Women who told us they didn’t really want to do it, but felt like they, ironically, had no choice …until we offered real help and hope.

Women who immediately burst into tears when we told them they were loved and they and their preborn child mattered.

Women who  because we were so peaceful  felt safe letting us know that they were being abused by a partner or had been raped  …and took refuge in our offer to get them and their child into a safe place.

In short, it was all due to the power of love.

The reality is that we can’t “make” a woman choose life — no one can.  These women according to their feedback — freely chose our help because we were peaceful, prayerful, law-abiding, and woman-oriented on the sidewalk, underscored by love.

If we don’t espouse these values, we can’t win her trust and connect her with a reputable pregnancy center who will provide her with healthcare resources, give her the truth about her developing child, and share the fact that many women have come to regret their abortions.

Everyone who volunteers with our ministry, in fact, must sign our Pledge of Integrity (click here to see).

More specifically, here is why Sidewalk Advocates for Life has chosen these values…

1. Peaceful – When a woman arrives at the abortion center, emotions are running high.  We don’t want to add any of the confusion or chaos in her life.  We do not believe that yelling or being ugly wins anyone.  As Mother Teresa says, “Peace begins with a smile.”  We always approach an abortion-bound woman or man calmly, with a smile on our face, introduce ourselves, and let her know of real, reputable resources in her community.

2. Prayerful – We believe that “apart from Him, we can do nothing” (Jn 15:5) and “with God all things are possible” (Mt 19:26).  We are imperfect people reaching out to other imperfect people.  It is His love and His grace that changes hearts and minds on the sidewalk — it’s just our job to freely offer that love and grace to anyone who wants to accept it.

3. Law-Abiding – We have five attorneys on our team between our Board of Directors and our staff, and we require our Sidewalk Advocates to follow the laws of the local jurisdiction.  Being law-abiding is important to winning the trust of that woman, the workers, and our community.  We never do anything to violate the law so that we have a chance to stay outside an abortion center as long as possible or in the days and months to come.

But what about a buffer zone law?  Is it okay to violate that law if we feel it is unjust?  While there’s no doubt that these laws are a form of viewpoint discrimination, especially noting that laws already protect people from criminal behavior, we should still follow the law for all the aforementioned reasons.  With good strategy, you can work around buffer zones.  (What we mean by “working around a buffer zone” is that you can stand outside a buffer zone and call people over to speak with you outside the buffer zone, etc., for example.)

4. Women-Oriented – This really goes back to love: We start with her.  She’s the one making the decision.  We’re not “counseling” the baby — she’s the one we have to reach.  It doesn’t matter what I think is helpful to an abortion-minded woman, it matters what research, testimony, and experience says.  We lean heavily on the most well-developed body of research on understanding the heart of an abortion-minded woman, Right-Brain Research (click here to see a summary article).

For example, we were surprised when some women we had met at various events who had been raped and later went onto have an abortion told us that “the abortion felt like a second rape.”  Wishing they had made a different decision, they urged us to share that information with other women on the sidewalk.

As we continue this ministry, we continue to listen to women and their experiences and share those experiences with others.


In summary, here’s a concise video that explains more of the spirit behind these values:

And when all these values come together, it can lead to miraculous stories such as Lizanne’s:

If you are a peaceful pro-life advocate who celebrates these values and wants to help save lives in your local community, we’d love to be a blessing to you! See for a summary of our training, tools, and support, and how to start one of our life-saving programs in your community.  (Our tools are so in-depth that we even have sheets to keep statistics of what is working well at your local abortion facility; however, our policy is that no Sidewalk Advocate may write down any information that could identify a client or worker.)

Almost 6,000 women have thanked us for being present at the abortion facility, peacefully reaching out to them; many of them have sent us pictures of their precious children or invited us to their baby shower or their child’s first birthday party.  We are honored to continue this life-saving journey, and we cannot wait to see what God will do next through YOU!  Going forward, let us know if we can be of service.

…someone who has been regularly in engaged in sidewalk counseling in front of your local abortion facility for years, but curious how to more quickly and effectively offer help to mothers in a really short amount of time — or navigate around difficult abortion center escorts and other workers?

…someone who’s never done this before, but wondering if this is for you  or someone who simply wants to know how to help a friend facing an unexpected pregnancy?

Could late-term abortion spread across the U.S.? What do we do?

Dear Friend of Life:

I felt like you could hear the outcry from people of faith and conscience when New York legalized abortion until birth just two weeks ago.

Now …Rhode Island? …Vermont? …Virginia? …considering it?!

What is this madness?!

After talking to fellow leaders in the pro-life movement regarding where this is coming from, we think one thing is clear: They are furious at the progress we in the pro-life movement, together, have made.  They know Roe v. Wade‘s days are numbered.  And this is push back for all of our progress, for the day that Roe is overturned and sent back to the states.

Meanwhile, it alerted all of us to the fact that several states already had “abortion until birth” as the law in their jurisdiction!  Those states (besides New York and Vermont) include Oregon, Alaska, Colorado, D.C., New Jersey, New Hampshire, and New Mexico.  Unbelievable.

All in all, no one summarized it better than my friend, Former Planned Parenthood Director Abby Johnson…

We have watched, in horror, over the past two weeks as states like New York, Virginia, Rhode Island and Vermont are seeking to roll out the most depraved abortion policies we have ever seen. Aborting babies in the third trimester, allowing non-physicians to perform abortions, and even killing babies outside of the womb if they happen to survive an abortion.

To add insult to injury, the One World Tower in New York lights up pink as this insane law is passed … to what? … remind us of how many baby girls will be killed?

What can we do? We must fight with everything we have to defeat these dangerous bills …Please help us end this scourge.”

We at Sidewalk Advocates for Life are already planning an additional training in New York to help equip our Advocates in the Northeast to aptly reach out to later-term abortion clients.  (Please pray for us as we finish off details!)

What’s interesting is that not even a lot of abortionists want to do abortions super late into pregnancy — as confirmed by Abby — so some of these laws may end up, largely, being symbolic.  Still, it leaves room for the handful of doctors who do commit abortions late into pregnancy to open additional offices in these states that do not restrict abortion after the point of viability.  In short, it will be interesting to watch how the landscape changes and if anyone updates their law as New York did.

What we must remember is this: There’s resounding agreement in the movement that we’re slowly winning this battle  ironically, New York is evidence of that.  Sidewalk Advocates for Life continues to be at the darkest places in our communities, right where abortions are taking place, to offer help and hope.  While we need to prepare ourselves for the unique set of circumstances that a later-term client often presents to us, we will not only continue doing what we’re doing, but working hard to expand our life-saving locations so that there’s no uncovered abortion facility in America!

You can partner with us at just $25/month to ensure we have the resources needed to re-train our Sidewalk Advocates every time a state updates their abortion law.  To become a LIFE PARTNER and help this life-saving work grow, go to:

Thank you, dear friend, for your prayers and sacrificial support as we look to save lives and end abortion at any stage of pregnancy through the power of His love!

In Christ, for LIFE,

I’m seeing Abby Johnson’s movie tonight…

Dear Friend of Life:

Tonight in Dallas, my husband and I will have a chance to preview the new blockbuster pro-life film that will hit theaters on March 29: Unplannedthe story of Former Planned Parenthood Director Abby Johnson and her journey to our side.

When I accepted the invitation, after a couple hours, it hit me: I’ll be seeing it on the 46th anniversary of Roe v. Wade!

Coincidence?  I’m not one to over-dramatize a connection, but I couldn’t help but feel this was no coincidence.  Just before the clock struck midnight and we entered 2019, I felt so strongly that this year was going to be a huge turning point in the pro-life battle and that THIS movie was going to be one of the biggest reasons why. 

I almost wonder if the Lord is telling me that this movie is going to impact hearts and minds so much that it will help lead us to the end of Roe.

Here’s a confession: I just got back with part of our National Team from the annual Washington D.C. March for Life — gosh, what an amazing trip for our ministry, full of divine appointments — and while there, I had an opportunity to preview the movie.  When my movie time popped up, our video guy and I were right in the middle of interviews, so it was hard to peel myself away.

No problem, I thought, there’s another showing later.

When the evening time rolled around, I didn’t tell anyone, but I hesitated.  Abby’s story was so much a part of my formation and is one of the biggest reasons why we do what we do in Sidewalk Advocates for Life, I was afraid I’d be too distracting in the small conference room: You know, the sobbing goon in the corner, ha!  A lot of people don’t know that I was a college student at Texas A&M University when Abby was rising through the ranks of Planned Parenthood, and I used to regularly pray and sidewalk counsel under the Brazos Valley Coalition for Life at her abortion facility.  In short, her story is so much a part of my own.

I told myself I’d wait until I was in a bigger theater and I could hide my box of Kleenex … and here’s the opportunity!

I remember what life was like before the first 40 Days for Life campaign showed up outside that Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Aggieland: The pro-life community had a lot of passion, but it was misfiring, so to speak.  There were weird costumes, angry signage, and a barrage of words across the fence …and it all felt so futile.  (When I tell people I know what it’s like to be ignored and feel like you are ineffective on the sidewalk, I mean it!)  In 2004, my friend David Bereit, (then) Director of the Brazos Valley Coalition for Life, gathered up his staff — which included my classmates, Shawn and Marilisa Carney — and led them through an hour of prayer at the Coalition office.

What came out of that time of prayer was 40 Days for Life: a 40-day campaign of prayer and fasting, peaceful vigil outside the abortion center, and community outreach.  David and Shawn encouraged all the odd strategies to stand down for just 40 days — and we were just going to try a peaceful prayer vigil.  The atmosphere changed.  Things got more peaceful, prayerful, and purposeful … and miraculously, more women were coming to the fence to talk.

And the abortion rate dropped in our college community by a whopping 28%!

I witnessed this transformation.  It was a profound part of my formation and why I believe in our peaceful approach in Sidewalk Advocates for Life so much.  After praying for so long for the key to winning more life-saving conversations, I was over the moon.

As you know, 40 Days for Life began to spread and has become an international movement, celebrating amazing victories for LIFE.

And after lots of prayer and loving persistence, Abby left Planned Parenthood and became one of the greatest pro-life leaders our movement has ever seen.

Years later, the main lesson hit me: The fence between us and Planned Parenthood was really made of pain … and prayer, peace, and love was the key to winning people across the lifeline.

On this anniversary of Roe, while it’s understandable to mark this day as one of great sadness, I’d like to redirect us a bit: After strategy discussions with other leaders around the March for Life, meeting more former workers and women healed from an abortion experience, and adding up our progress in just the past few years, I believe we’re at a real, profound turning point that will lead us to the end of Roe.  The momentum is on our side  we just need to capitalize on it!

Here’s 3 things YOU can do to continue the life-saving momentum…

1. Follow the movie, Unplanned, online and via social media and share, share, share their posts!  When the movie release approaches, go see it and get as many of your friends and loved ones to go see it!  We’ll also be in touch with opportunities to partner with us to help get the word out about this powerful film!  Website:

2. Stay connected with us at Sidewalk Advocates for Life We have some big things coming out in the next year that we believe will help save more lives than ever before — we cannot wait to share more!  Follow us on social media (see all buttons at the top left of

Also, you can find your closest location and get trained as a Sidewalk Advocate here:

Or if there isn’t a location near you and you have an abortion or abortion-referral facility in your backyard, consider building your own team — we’ll be there every step of the way!:

3. Join us as a monthly LIFE PARTNER where you can help advance our life-saving mission to ensure that no abortion facility in the country goes without peaceful, loving advocates every hour of business!  See and be sure to click “Make this a monthly gift”!

The pro-life, pro-love message is more infectious than ever, and rest assured, God is moving.  In that spirit, I leave you with this moving picture of our friend, Dr. Pat Castle, Founder & CEO of LIFE Runners, who passed our official March for Life sign, “Make Unborn Babies Great Again” (which went viral during the March!) to the Governor of South Dakota, Kristi Noem, and then, joyfully snapped this picture as if to say that LIFE is winning again in America.  (The devotional, below, was also composed by her!)

Friends, I cannot wait to see all that 2019 has in store for all of us who love the Lord and the gift of LIFE!  Stay tuned, right?

In Christ, for LIFE,

Hang out this week?

Dear Friend of Life,

As you know, next week marks the 46th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision.  Since 1973, over 61 million innocent lives have been lost to abortion — the leading cause of death in the world.

But truly, the tide is changing …and because people like you have ‘stood up and shown up,’ there’s no question we’ve hit an unstoppable acceleration in the battle for LIFE! 

To help keep the life-saving momentum going, members of our National Team will be traveling to pro-life events across the country over the next couple of weeks in order to stand for LIFE, discuss best practices with fellow leaders, and share our life-saving sidewalk advocacy program with attendees …and we would love to see you!

If you’ll be near any of these events, please stop by and say hello!  We will have our exclusive merchandise for sale, including our top-selling “Make Unborn Babies Great Again” tees, hats, and marching signs!  (Many #MUBGA items sold out last year, so come get some before they’re gone!)

CLOSED: Another abortion facility …GONE!!

Dear Friend of Life:

What amazing news to end 2018: Our 14th abortion facility has CLOSED! Just before the clock struck 2019, our wonderful team of Sidewalk Advocates in San Antonio, TX, received the best Christmas present ever: News that prayer and peaceful outreach in the battle for LIFE had won again, and one of their abortion facilities was shutting its doors for good! 

Led by Susan and Kellie, the team had been working diligently this year to build 100% coverage at not just one, but all three abortion centers in San Antonio.  Their plan was simple: Utilize proven sidewalk advocacy strategies to encourage women to check out the mobile ultrasound unit (on site whenever possible), and ensure a smooth hand off to Eddie and his team at “A Woman’s Haven” pregnancy resource center for life-affirming care, tailored to her needs.

In the midst of simply loving and helping each mother-in-crisis before them, they were rewarded with the news that Whole Woman’s Health in San Antonio was closing for good at the end of the year!

The San Antonio team at last year’s First Annual “Save Lives on the Sidewalk National Pro-Life Conference”

Here’s what co-leader, Susan, had to say when we rejoiced with them and noted what ‘rockstars’ they are…

“We are not THE rockstars!  We have a team of rockstars, and of course, only with God was this possible at all!  Thank you, Sidewalk Advocates for Life, for all that you do to empower all of us on the sidewalk in front of an abortion clinic. It is with your encouragement, example and training that we are all brave and knowledgeable to combat the evil present there. It truly is a spiritual battle, but not only that, it is a physical, mental and emotional challenge. …But so worth it. On to the next one! (Truly,) the MOST underserved area where a woman is experiencing a crisis pregnancy is at the sidewalk in front of an abortion clinic. Praise God for the gift of being called to (this team) and to …be a spectator witnessing daily miracles.”

What miracles will you be part of in 2019?  If you want to see how God can use you this year, you can find a Sidewalk Advocates for Life location nearest you and get trained as a SidewalkAdvocate: …or consider starting your own by going to!  And if you can’t join us on the sidewalk, you can help this great work grow by signing up for a monthly gift of $25 or more at!

Let’s keep the life-saving momentum going: Please join us however you can in this great mission to save lives and end abortion through the power of His love …and together, let’s look forward to another miraculous year for His glory!

In Christ,

DOUBLE the number of babies saved this year!!

Dear Friend of Life:

I remember having a moment before the clock struck midnight last year, wondering what 2018 would hold for our ministry in Sidewalk Advocates for Life.

We knew that when we showed up at abortion facilities and put ourselves at His disposal, pledging to be His hands and feet to mothers-in-crisis, MIRACLES HAPPENED

But I never dreamed we’d see the number of BABIES SAVED DOUBLE in one year!!

Glory to God!!

In one year’s time, here’s exactly what we witnessed…

  • the number of babies saved went from about 2,600 to 5,300
  • over 600 additional women, termed “hopefuls,” told us they were leaving the abortion facility to seriously consider choosing life
  • we helped 12 more eternal souls leave the abortion business through the love of Christ, referring them to And Then There Were None abortion worker ministry
  • 2 more facilities with a Sidewalk Advocates for Life presence closed their doors for good

…and MORE!

Meanwhile, we’re finishing up our new Spanish training and support program, our updated basic English training, a new library of literature (to help every type of client who crosses our path), new tools for our Sidewalk Advocates …and MORE!

In short, there’s no doubt that your prayers and financial support of this ministry have made a PROFOUND difference in the battle for LIFE!!

As I sit here just days before a new year, I cannot help but wonder what God has in store. I can tell you that in prayer  truly, with everything in me  I feel like 2019 is going to be a pivotal year for us and for the pro-life movement.  A wave of culture change is getting ready to explode — and frankly, that explains the spiritual battle swirling around us!

I wanted to humbly ask if you’d join me in doing three things…

1. PRAY.  Please pray that God will lead, guide, protect, and bless us for His Glory — that we would see more lives saved, more facilities close, and more eternal souls impacted than ever before.  This is why we do what we do!

2. SUPPORT.  Thank you, thank you, thank you for the many sacrifices you made to keep our mission going strong in 2018.  As you may know, we are the only organization with the professed goal of covering every uncovered abortion facility in the U.S. and beyond with peaceful, loving advocates every hour of business so no mother goes without knowledge of real help and hope.  If you haven’t made a year-end gift yet (or you have a little more to give) and you can help us start 2019 positioned for strong growth, you can go (if made before Monday night, it will count as a tax-deductible donation for 2018)!

3. SPREAD THE WORD. A movie about the journey of Former Planned Parenthood Director Abby Johnson from pro-abortion to pro-life, Unplanned, will hit theaters this March!  We’ve seen clips of the movie, and we know it’s going to ROCK the culture.  Please pray for the movie and Abby & her family, follow the movie on social media, and see if you feel called to do something to spread the word!

You have no idea how much I look forward to writing you a year from now, proclaiming what God has done through YOU once again!    

Thank you again for joining us in this great mission to save lives and end abortion through the most powerful weapon we have: His love.

Happy New Year!

Expectant & Hopeful,

Lauren Muzyka
Executive Director

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)

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 that sacrificial love with us as we head out to abortion facilities around the globe, meeting mothers-in-crisis where they’re at, seeking to love them into a decision for LIFE.

Whatever challenge a woman may be facing, 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.

It is often that peaceful outreach presence on the sidewalk that is a game-changer: a simple conversation that brings hope to a woman who otherwise feels her life has just been turned upside down.

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

This Christmas season, we will be praising God for all He has done through your sacrificial support the past 4.5 years…

  • 5,307 babies saved
  • 1,482 hopefuls
  • 453 turnaways
  • 59 workers who have left the business
  • 13 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 His love!

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