We prepared for Roe v. Wade to be overturned for years...
...which is why we hit the ground running this fall with the largest 40 Days for Life campaign in history. But Planned Parenthood was decidedly NOT ready.
The abortion giant's annual report is out, and it reveals an organization in disarray:
- Planned Parenthood has no sense of purpose, meandering from race to abortion to claiming credit for helping end the pandemic;
- Even after nearly two years with control of the White House and both chambers of Congress, Planned Parenthood doesn't have any major public policy victories to show for it;
- Abortions are up...but real health care provision is WAY down.
Get the full breakdown of an organization in decline on this week's episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast:
We also take a look at what to watch out for from Planned Parenthood going forward. (Spoiler alert: They're coming for your kids.)
Planned Parenthood isn't the only abortion business struggling. Brighton leader Sheridan said the local MSI abortion facility appears to be in trouble.
"The Care Quality Commission has indicated that it wishes to investigate coerced abortion and lack of safeguarding following the introduction of pills by post [mail-order abortions]," Sheridan reported.
Sheridan added that vigil participants have observed women avoiding the abortion facility after lingering outside.
"There are many encouraging signs that the vigil, prayer walks, and other activities are effective," he added. "Following the 40 Days for Life University training...has been great....I have never received so many smiles in return and unexpected greetings!"
We're now in the second half of the autumn campaign, but it's still HOT in Arizona. Glendale prayer warriors found a spot underneath a shade tree provided the best place to do Sidewalk Outreach--and for respite from the blazing sun.
"Someone decided the tree needed a trim, and almost all the branches were taken off," said Tammy, the local leader. "The tree now offers very little shade at all."
The pruning occurred right before the 40 Days for Life vigil began--and additional trimming was limited to the side of the street where prayer warriors gather.
"It makes me smile to think that our presence is so impactful," Tammy said.
But the Lord said, "You have had pity on the plant for which you have not labored, nor made it grow, which came up in the night and perished in the night. And should I not pity Nineveh, that great city, in which are more than one hundred and twenty thousand persons who cannot discern between their right hand and their left, and much livestock? Should I not be concerned about that great city?"
Gracious God, loving our enemies seems like one of the most difficult things you could ask of us. Please remind us that this is how you love and that if you ask it of us, then you will give us the grace to do it.
