This is San Diego's surgical abortion center where abortions are performed up to 26 weeks.
Where we are standing:
Public right-of-way outside
2017 First Avenue (near corner of First and Grape)
San Diego, CA 92101
Most abortions are performed between the hours of 7:00 am and 12 noon M-F.
Your participation is greatly appreciated.
What to expect:
The sidwalk is open to us. We cannot block the entryway or driveway. The security guard (M-F Hugo) might shadow you, however, he is kind and easy to work with. He generally does not speak to us. Do not worry that you are breaking any rules/laws as long as you stay on the city sidewalk.
The majority of people entering and exiting Planned Parenthood are polite or silent. You do not need to speak to anyone outside of good morning/afternoon said with the loving smile of Christ. If you are called to speak, it is always recommended to call upon the Holy Spirit and ask for His words to fill your conversation. In the resources there are flyers you can review, download and bring with you that have places you can send a person for assistance. You can call John at (619) 909-3194 if you need help.
There are those who will drive by and say things or give you the bird, in these cases do not respond in kind. Call to mind the words our Lord taught us, "Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of evil against you [falsely] because of me. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven. Thus they persecuted the prophets who were before you." Matthew 5:11-12
We have not experienced violence. That being said, if anyone ever feels unsafe, simply leave.
You are invited to come any time. I (John, campaign leader) am there M-F from 7:00 am to 12 noon. The more people we have on the sidewalk the more a person thinks before they enter the facility. If you feel that abortion needs to be stopped, you can be a part of the solution!
Thank you and God Bless,
