URGENT prayer request for Aurora, IL!

I apologize for sending you a second e-mail message in one day, but a very
urgent situation has just come up that I knew you would want to know about.

As you're probably aware, the 40 Days for Life campaign waged in Aurora,
Illinois successfully blocked Planned Parenthood from opening its new 22,000
square foot abortion mega-center that was scheduled to open on September 18.

In response, Planned Parenthood filed a federal lawsuit against the city,
staged several angry demonstrations, and put enormous political pressure on
the mayor and city officials in Aurora.

Today, the city of Aurora caved to Planned Parenthood.

At a press conference this afternoon, city officials announced that they are
about to grant a temporary occupancy permit to Planned Parenthood, and the
abortion facility plans to open its doors to begin killing children and
wounding women at 10 AM (Central time) tomorrow, October 2.

I just got off the phone with Eric Scheidler, leader of the 40-day effort in
Aurora, and here's where he needs our help right now:

--> #1: Please get down on your knees and pray for God to work a mighty
miracle between now and 10 AM to keep this abortion center from opening. The
people of Aurora have provided hope for the rest of the nation and we need
to stand with them in their urgent time of need.

--> #2: The Aurora effort has a desperate need for REAL ESTATE or ZONING
LAWYERS. If you are a real estate or zoning attorney, please send a message
to the e-mail address below ASAP, with the following information:

1. Complete contact address and numbers
2. Areas of legal expertise
3. Hours available for pro-bono work


NOTE: The above e-mail address is for LAWYERS ONLY. Do not send a message
with information about a lawyer you know. INSTEAD, call or e-mail that
lawyer and urge him or her to send that message.

The battle in Aurora has national implications for the entire 40 Days for
Life effort, and your prayers can make a huge difference.

Thank you!
