On Monday Eric and I attended a meeting at the invitation of Youth for Truth, a new group of local pro-life teens who are planning a Teen Rally next Saturday, September 1, from 1:00 – 3:00 PM at the Aurora, IL site of Planned Parenthood’s ginormous built-under-the-radar Abortion Fortress. The group was a good mix of teens from all different types of schools — public schools, Catholic schools, Christian schools, home schools, and universities. At one point, one of the guys at the meeting said, “Up until two weeks ago, I didn’t know what Planned Parenthood was.” Now, he — along with the rest of the members of Youth for Truth — are determined to do everything they can to stop Planned Parenthood. We’ll be posting more information on the September 1 Teen Rally soon. In the meantime, don’t forget about the rally at the Planned Parenthood site (map) this Saturday, August 25 from 9:00 – 11:00AM, featuring four pro-life events in one:
- The ongoing 40-Day Prayer Vigil, supplemented by scores more Prayer Warriors
- An old-school picket along Oakhurst Drive and New York Street
- A Face the Truth Tour on the busy nearby corner of New York Street and Eola Road
- A huge leafleting drive throughout the surrounding Oakhurst neighborhood
If you come, park at Our Lady of Mercy Church at 801 S. Eola Rd. (map), one mile south of the protest site. A shuttle will operate between the church and the Rally from 8:30 to 11:30 AM. If you can’t come, please remember us — and, more importantly, our goal of preventing the opening of this new abortion clinic — in your prayers.
