PHOTOS: Children you helped save from abortion!

Dear Friend of Life:

As we look to Christmas next week and contemplate the greatest gift that we’ve ever been given — the gift of God’s precious Son — I wanted you to see some of the faces of the nearly 8,000 children that YOU have gifted with LIFE through your support of Sidewalk Advocates for Life!

Because of your past support, we’ve been able to grow in just 5.5 years to nearly 200 abortion facilities around the globe, enabling these precious children to be saved through the peaceful, loving outreach of a Sidewalk Advocate!  And remember that behind each one of these faces is a mother and a family who has been forever impacted by your sacrificial support.

We cannot thank you enough.

But we don’t want to stop here …right?

There are more abortion-minded mothers and families who are entering abortion facilities without anyone there  which weighs heavy on our hearts.  For the sake of lives and souls, our ministry is dedicated to building as many life-saving teams of Sidewalk Advocates as possible in 2020!

Friend, right now, we’re in our year-end campaign, and our big goal for this campaign is raising the support needed to add an additional 150 locations by the end of 2020, putting us in front of 50% of all uncovered abortion facilities and giving us a chance to reach more abortion-minded mothers and families than ever before!

But as of this moment, we are still about $29,423 short with just days to go until DEADLINE.

There’s no doubt that we won’t be able to close the gap without more help!  (If you’ve already given to our year-end campaign, please know you’ve given us a much needed boost towards the finish line and we are so grateful!)

Will you help Sidewalk Advocates for Life grow to save more precious children from abortion by clicking the button, below, to make a life-saving, tax-deductible gift of support right now?


Thank you for whatever you can do right now to help!  And thank you for your partnership in this great mission to save lives and end abortion through the power of His love!

Blessings in Christ,

PICTURE: A father at the abortion facility who chose life

Dear Friend of Life:

When we help save a life from abortion, we don’t just save a child, we often save an entire family.

Because abortion affects more than just the mother, it’s not uncommon to see the father of the child with her at the abortion center.

I’ll never forget that early December day  just a couple years ago  on the sidewalk in Tampa, FL.  Three of us from the Sidewalk Advocates for Life National Team decided to go reach out at the local abortion facility for a few hours before a training for our Florida leaders.

Glory to God, we had already walked one woman who chose life next door to the pregnancy center, and the very next group to arrive was a family: A young mom, boyfriend, and her sister.

I reached out to them, letting them know we cared about them and had real help and hope for them that day.  I handed them something called a “Blessing Bag” that detailed all the help available alongside some small gifts — no doubt, showing them we could back up our offer of help.

As I was sharing my heart, at one point, the father of the baby looked at mom and said, “I think you should listen to them.” 

He didn’t want to lose his child.

She told me she wanted to go inside and just hear what “they,” the abortion facility, had to say.  Knowing that a lot of women “need” to go inside and experience the darkness of the abortion facility and contrast that with the hope and light we offer on the sidewalk, I knew this absolutely wasn’t a closed door.  I simply kept reminding her that they were likely going to pressure her, abortion hurts, and there is a way for her to have the life she wants and still have her precious child.

The father later told us that when they were inside, the darkness of the abortion facility hit them hard, especially the coldness of the abortion workers — who kept asking for payment  that permeated the conversation.  They both went and stood in the bathroom and began sobbing.  They kept thinking of our offer of help and hope on the sidewalk, and dad’s encouragement played a huge role in moving them to leave.

I remember the door to the abortion facility suddenly swinging open — just before we ended our prayer for them and said AMEN, in fact!  I looked at them with a big smile on my face and said, “So, are you ready to take us up on that offer of help?”

“Yes, yes, we are.”

My heart soared!  As we walked them next door to the pregnancy center, we got to know them a bit better and let them know that they could contact us any time.

Imagine my delight a few weeks later when I got a text message from Mom: “Lauren, I can’t thank you enough for being there for us that day.  I just found out I’m having a boy.  I’m ready to do whatever I need to for my son!”

From there, a beautiful friendship blossomed.

We ended up throwing them a baby shower, and we were sent a wedding announcement several months later.  Dad ended up saying yes to serving our country in the army, and he and Mom (and her two little girls from a previous relationship) were transferred overseas, blessed and supported by his service to our great country.

One day, Nate on our national team  who became quite close with Dad  sent me the following photo…

In this photo, I saw a father  who had listened to the Holy Spirit and dedicated himself to doing the right thing  holding his son, Cameron, in victory.

What an honor to play a small role in what God did to save a family from abortion.

I still remember one dinner we shared with them where Dad, holding his son in his arms, looked squarely at me and said, “$350.  They wanted $350 for my son’s life!  Can you believe that?!?”

I realized the profound statement he had just made. He and Mom thanked us again for being there that day.

Friend, this is what it’s all about.

Because of your support of our ministry, we were able to be there that day for a family in crisis.Even more so, because of all you’ve made possible, we now have close to 200 sites with trained Sidewalk Advocates who are there for mothers and fathers who, ironically, may feel like they have no choice but to take the life of their child.  Through their peaceful, prayerful outreach, they have been able to save nearly 8,000 children and families from abortion — praise God!

Right now, we are in our year-end campaign to raise the funds needed to add another 150 locations this next year for the sake of lives and souls, and currently, we are short of goal about $30,000.

Will you help us close the gap so we can help save more lives and families in 2020?Again, I cannot thank you enough for your partnership in this great mission to save mothers, fathers, and families from the tragedy of abortion!Thank you so much for your support!

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:

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!

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:

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

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:

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