5 Encouraging Reminders for the Pro-Life Movement

5 Encouraging Reminders for the Pro-Life Movement

Despite Planned Parenthood’s oft-repeated claim that it offers “comprehensive health services,” its own just-released annual report reveals what a big, fat lie this is. Their own statistics reveal a steep decline in positive services—such as testing for STDs. In fact, as National Review Online notes, Planned Parenthood’s annual report reveals that the abortion giant “exists to provide abortions and not much else.” As for prenatal services—they’ve “dropped steadily every year since 2009, from over 40,000 that year to just under 8,000 last year.”

But there is good news, as well.

    1. We have a pro-life president.


    We also have a pro-life Congress. President Trump was the first President to speak at the annual March for Life in Washington D.C. this year. 

    “We will always defend the very first right in the Declaration of Independence …the right to life,” the President said in his March for Life speech. "America’s future will be filled with goodness, peace, joy dignity and life for every child of God,” he continued. “Thank you to the March of Life. We are with you all the way."

    2. Abortion clinics are closing.


    Last year, 32 Planned Parenthood clinics closed. Some of them closed because President Trump is allowing states to redirect funds away from Planned Parenthood in favor of organizations that provide reproductive health care that does not include abortion. And more and more women are choosing life for their babies after seeing ultrasound images of them—something many prolife pregnancy centers offer.

    But Planned Parenthood still runs nearly 600 clinics and gobbles up millions in taxpayer money, so we still have plenty of work to do.

    Tens of thousands of people attended this year's rally in January, and with the Trump administration's support, many more were made aware of the event and movement.

    The March for Life in Washington D.C. is also not the only one around the country. Other rallies are held around the same time of year, such as one in Chicago, on which ChristianHeadlines.com previously reported. The Chicago rally drew over 6,000 people.

    4. More people are supporting pro-life groups and pregnancy centers.


    Centers like these help vulnerable young women make the choice for life through free diapers and formula, parenting classes, adoption services, and temporary housing for pregnant women who have no place to go.

    Groups like Students for Life are doing great work for the pro-life cause. Also, did you know that there are pro-life groups at work in every state? Additionally, pregnancy centers provide for the physical and emotionally needs of women. Many offer free ultrasounds and counseling.

    5. People are praying to end abortion--and God hears our prayers!


    pray, pray, pray for an end to legalized abortion. Come to BreakPoint.org/21days and download our free guide, “21 Days of Prayer for Life.” It offers stories of women who chose life, and of women and men who regret the abortions of their children. You will learn how to pray for those who are under constant attack for telling women the truth about abortion on college campuses. You’ll also learn how to make the case for life in just sixty seconds.

    And let’s remember to pray for the abortionists who commit these horrific acts—that they will, like the late Dr. Bernard Nathanson, leave the “satanic world of abortion,” as he called it—and become children of God.
