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,
Sidewalk Advocates for Life
