Day 2 of the UNITED tour picked up right where Day 1 left off in the Mid-Atlantic states -- it was downright soggy!

But the main thing to note about Thursday's tour stops is that the abortion facilities were all closed when we got there!


Even howling flash-flood warning sirens weren't enough to keep prayer volunteers away from our stop outside Planned Parenthood in Dover, Delaware.

The center was not open ... but Planned Parenthood supporters braved the weather to photograph the bus!

It was a similar picture at Planned Parenthood in Wilmington. This facility closed rather than staying open when we rolled into town for Delaware's statewide rally.


The abortion giant wasn't exactly happy to see us ... and before long, the police came. When they arrived, though, they said they were there to protect us and make sure nobody was giving us any trouble!

When we drove up to the abortion center in Cherry Hill, New Jersey ... we found no one home there, either. The staff had called it a day and emptied out before the tour arrived.


Volunteers here report witnessing 25 babies saved from abortion during the previous campaign. Praise God for these saved lives ... and for the faithful volunteers, including those who go out to pray all year long.

The day concluded with an incredible crowd at the statewide New Jersey rally in Morristown, along with -- you guessed it -- more rain!

We met Jenny, a prayer volunteer who had been indifferent toward abortion until she encountered her local 40 Days for Life campaign. She's a regular vigil participant. We also heard a beautifully touching post-abortion testimony from Lana of Silent No More, who moved the crowd to tears with her story of heartbreak and healing.

We're now 520 miles into the tour. Onward to to New York!
