After a break from the regular third Saturday monthly protests outside Planned Parenthood Aurora to protest President Obama at Notre Dame, tireless Fox Valley pro-life activists were back on track on June 20.
Peaceful Protest Continues at Planned Parenthood Aurora
Dozens of pro-lifers lined New York Street with picket signs proclaiming “Moms for Life,” “Dads for Life,” “Planned Parenthood Lies to You” and “Stop Abortion Now” while several others kept a prayer and counseling presence at the entrance of the clinic to offer help to abortion-bound moms.
The June protest was peaceful and prayerful, just like every protest has been every month for nearly the last two years. Despite pro-abortion groups’ attempts to portray all pro-lifers as violent because of the shooting of late-term abortionist George Tiller, the facts continue to tell a different story.
Not one act of violence has been committed by a pro-lifer at Planned Parenthood Aurora while several pro-lifers have been attacked by passing cars, had projectiles thrown at them and been harassed by Planned Parenthood staffers. If one side of this controversy is going to be portrayed as violent, it could hardly be the pro-life side.
At the conclusion of the protest, the activists gathered to share some words of encouragement and close in prayer.
The next Planned Parenthood Aurora protest will coincide with the concluding day of the League’s Summer Face the Truth Tour. The Tour begins Friday, July 10 in Joliet.

Maafa 21: Black Genocide in the 21st Century
We got word last week from the redoutable Mark Crutcher at Life Dynamics that he has produced a new DVD available titled “Maafa 21”. (The term “Maafa” is derived from a Swahili word meaning “disaster” or “terrible tragedy” and is used to refer to the sufferings of Africans and their descencandants as a result of slavery and other evils.)
Life Dynamics introduces the film with these words:
They were stolen from their homes, locked in chains and taken across an ocean. And for more than 200 years, their blood and sweat would help to build the richest and most powerful nation the world has ever known.
But when slavery ended, their welcome was over. America’s wealthy elite had decided it was time for them to disappear and they were not particular about how it might be done.
What you are about to see is that the plan these people set in motion 150 years ago is still being carried out today. So don’t think that this is history. It is not. It is happening right here, and it’s happening right now.
You can watch the trailer for the movie and order DVD copies at maafa21.com.
