Monthly Planned Parenthood protest: 9-11 a.m. Sat. 11/17
Inspired by the tremendous success of last month's "We're Here for Life" rally, we will now conduct a protest every third Saturday of the month at Planned Parenthood, 3051 E. New York Street (map). Picket signs will be provided.
These monthly protests punctuate the ongoing Life Support effort, offering prayer and assistance for Planned Parenthood clients every hour the facility is open. If you missed the October 27 Rally, don't miss the first monthly protest.
Clinic witness seminar: 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Sat. 11/17
Our ongoing pro-life presence at Planned Parenthood depends on a core group well-trained in clinic ministry. At this two-hour seminar sponsored by Our Lady of Mercy Church at 801 S. Eola Rd. in Aurora (map), the Pro-Life Action League's Ann Scheidler will teach you how to reach out to abortion-bound women and offer them the choice for life.
The seminar by will include a Power Point presentation, role playing, sample literature and more, and is not only for those interested in sidewalk counseling. It is important for prayer warriors to understand the counselor's role and how best to offer support. Also discussed will be important legal questions that we face on a daily basis at the site.
Registration is $10 for materials and refreshments and advance registration is strongly encouraged; call 773-777-2900 to sign up.
Benefit screening of Bella: 2:50 p.m. Sat. 11/17
If a morning protest and mid-day seminar aren't enough to fill your Saturday with pro-life activities, come to a free screening of Bella at the Cantera Theatre (map) at 2:50 p.m, provided by the generosity of Republican congressional candidate Jim Oberweis.
If you haven't seen the inspiring pro-life film Bella yet, this is your chance to do soâ€”and to support the efforts of Fox Valley Families Against Planned Parenthood too. You will have the opportunity to offer a donation for your free ticketâ€”a donation of $10 is suggested. All proceeds will benefit the ongoing efforts of Fox Valley Families Against Planned Parenthood.
