Tire Change Saves Baby?

A few weeks ago, a couple of young women were driving down Centennial when they pulled to the side of the road due to a flat tire.

Their protracted attempt to change the tire drew the notice of one of the prayer volunteers standing on the sidewalk in front of Planned Parenthood.

Allies in the Battle for Life

I had the honor and privilege of attending a Holiday Open House at the Galley Road offices of Life Network in early December. One of the purposes of the open house was to bid a fond farewell to the current President and CEO of Life Network, Diane Foley, MD, and to meet and welcome the man who will take the reins in January 2017, Mr. Rich Bennett.

PPCFL Fall 2015 Appeal

PPCFL Fall 2015 Appeal

Our communities are so desensitized by the culture of death that many of our fellow citizens do not recognize the horror of abortion. However, the undercover videos by the Center for Medical Progress, which exposed a fetal body parts trafficking scandal, recently pierced the apathy, even making some staunch abortion supporters question Planned Parenthood.

The scandal spurred over 600 pro-lifers to attend a rally in front of Planned Parenthood on August 22nd in Colorado Springs. On October 4th nearly 300 life witnesses lined Academy Blvd in the annual PPCFL-sponsored Life Chain, and more life witnesses participated in the 40 Days for Life campaign. We believe our latest Every Life Matters billboard reflects the intentions of all these witnesses.

Man Turns Pro-Life After Seeing Pro-Life Witnesses on Sidewalk

During the last 40 Days campaign a young man drove by the pro-life witnesses on the sidewalk in front of the local Planned Parenthood and wondered what it was all about.

This man held a “pro-choice” position but decided to do some research on the abortion issue to understand why people would spend time on the sidewalk encouraging people to turn away from abortion.

Presenting Life

Recently, Pikes Peak Citizens for Life did a presentation to about 250 parishioners at a local church.  Our guest speaker, a post abortive lady, captivated the attendees as she sorrowfully talked about the suffering and trauma she experienced from her two abortions. 

Afterwards, many attended a breakfast.  My wife staffed a display table with pro-life literature etc.  She spoke with many young people giving each the 12 week old soft touch baby model.  An attractive young lady stopped at the table and explained that 15 years ago she was scheduled to have an abortion.  However, after hearing a similar pro-life presentation, she changed her mind!  Today she is so happy she did!

Multiple Women Redirected to Pregnancy Center in Single Day

b2ap3_thumbnail_fetus-599x249.jpgLate in October the sidewalk counselors encountered a day on which they were able to redirect not one but two women from Planned Parenthood to the Pregnancy Center.

In the first case, a woman with two 15-year-old teens in the back seat of her car spoke to a counselor. She was taking one of the teens for an abortion.
