Victory in Aurora ILL

I'm writing to you from 36,000 feet in the air on my way from Washington, D.C., to California to speak at a pro-life event before heading to Aurora, Illinois, to join the celebration...


Today is day 40 of the Aurora 40 Days for Life effort, and media outlets are buzzing with the news summed up by this quote from Eric Scheidler featured in one area newspaper last night:


  "Planned Parenthood will not be opening tomorrow. For 

   me and the citizens of Aurora and the Fox Valley

   Families Against Planned Parenthood, that's a great

   victory. We've been praying for 40 days that this

   would not open, and our prayers have been answered."


Even with Planned Parenthood's millions of dollars, political clout, legal strong-arm tactics, and media influence, the abortion chain STILL couldn't open its new 22,000 square foot abortion mega-center as originally scheduled for today. God is good!


Get the whole story at:



The battle in Aurora is far from over, with Planned Parenthood taking the battle back to court on Thursday, but this is a clear victory demonstrating the power of 40 days of prayer, fasting, and peaceful action.


That's the amazing news of what God is doing through the faithful people participating in the 40 Days for Life effort in Aurora, Illinois...


...Now, here's the big question:


   How can God use YOU to make a life-saving impact in

   one of the other 80+ cities that are gearing up to

   launch 40 Days for Life campaigns next Wednesday?


There's one way to find out.


1.) Go right now to:

Maybe God will ask you to participate in the 40 days of focused prayer and fasting.


Maybe He will call upon you to stand as a peaceful witness through the 40 day vigil outside a local abortion facility.


Maybe He will use you to spread the pro-life message through 40 days of grassroots community outreach.


Whatever role God puts on your heart, look to the thousands of faithful people of Aurora, Illinois, for inspiration, and then take courageous action.
