National Pro-Life Movement Gains More Traction

Those who had been sitting on the sidelines on the issue of life have been coming out in droves to defend unborn babies, thanks to a new pro-life film and sickening abortion legislation that passed in New York.

The Unplanned movie has sparked a prayer movement. Last weekend, 166 National Pro-Life Candlelight Vigils were held at Planned Parenthood abortion centers in 40 U.S. states, with more than 10,000 people participating. Organizers of the Protest Planned Parenthood movement included the Pro-Life Action League, Created Equal, and Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, along with more than 75 local, state, and national pro-life groups.

“We’re really encouraging people to take those feelings of sorrow and sadness, what they saw in that movie, and also that feeling of gratefulness to God’s mercy that Abby Johnson was shown, and turn that into action,” said Eric Scheidler, executive director of the Pro-Life Action League.

Then this week, in response to the recent legalization of infanticide in New York, Students for Life of America went to Times Square in New York City to hold a rally with 900 pink crosses representing the 900 babies that are killed daily at Planned Parenthood clinics across the nation and to display pro-life messages for three days on a digital billboard.

On May 4, Focus on the Family will present “Alive from New York,” a 4D live ultrasound of a baby in the womb on the jumbotrons in Times Square. The free event will be held from 2:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. and will also feature live music and inspirational speeches.
