How to become a sidewalk counselor

July 23, 2013

unborn-babyDo you want to do more in order to promote life? Perhaps you are being called to counsel people who are abortion-minded. Many babies have been saved because of kind words uttered by a counselor when their parents were entering an abortuary. Kalley Yanta–a sidewalk counselor–says, “A woman entering an abortion clinic is on the verge of falling overboard with her baby. This is life or death. It’s an emergency. What we do is crucial.”  People are lined up at places like Planned Parenthood as if they’re at a fast food drive-thru; and those little ones need more help.

The 2013 National Sidewalk Counseling Symposium is being held July 25-27. This event is sponsored by Pro-Life Action Ministries (PLAM). Here is what their website states:

This symposium is open to any pro-lifer interested in sidewalk counseling! Presenters include Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests for Life; Shawn Carney of 40 Days for Life; Joe, Ann, and Eric Scheidler of the Pro-Life Action League; Rev. Walter Hoye of Issues4Life Foundation, and other sidewalk counseling leaders. The symposium will begin on Thursday evening, continue all day Friday, and conclude before noon on Saturday at the Best Western Premier Nicollet Inn at 14201 Nicollet Ave. S., Burnsville, MN . The fee is $50 (there may be some scholarships available for those unable to afford this fee). Please call 651-771-1500 to register.

Since 1981 there have been 2863 babies saved through the efforts of Pro-Life Action Ministries. Just this year 53 lives have been spared so far, but we need more help on the frontlines! Please view this informative video below and then visit Plam’s website for more information.

Thanks for all you do to embrace life!

Abortuary in Regions is Closing!

November 26, 2011

Congratulations to Pro-Life Action Ministries and to all people (including Archbishop Nienstedt) who embrace life and participated in the 40 Days for Life campaign. Your prayers and sacrifices worked! Read the beautifully written email from Brian Gibson below for details of this exciting news.

Brian’s Email 

Dear Kathy,

 Regions Hospital, bowing to the pressure brought by prayer and the presence of thousands of Christians, announced today that the abortuary within the hospital will close on December 9, 2011. This comes after seven 40 Days for Life campaigns involving thousands at the hospital, petitions drives, phone calling and emailing campaigns, and millions of dollars in lost business for HealthPartners over its ownership of the hospital and the abortuary.

 I cannot express properly the waves of emotions of joy I am experiencing with this victory.

 I have little doubt the reason for this announcement on the Friday after Thanksgiving was intended to minimize the publicity of the closing and to pass a “Regions only” spin to the news. But it matters little as to the claims of the hospital, we know how much prayer and labor has gone into convincing hospital officials to close their abortion mill.

 This is the first abortion facility to close in Minnesota in more than two decades.

 We thank God first and foremost for this great victory. It is the Lord of Life who has moved hearts and changed minds. We also thank all those who prayed ardently, kept vigil or stood in witness at Regions, who signed petitions, sent correspondence, picketed at HealthPartners clinics and annual meetings, and who aided the boycott of HealthPartners medical insurance these past six years.

 Happy Thanksgiving again!

 Your brother in Christ,

 Brian Gibson

In an email received later, Brian Gibson wrote: “Join with us on Friday, December 9 at Noon to thank God for His victory with the closing of this killing center! This victory rally will be at Regions Hospital located at 640 Jackson Street, Saint Paul, MN. We will gather at the same place we held our 40 Days for Life prayer services.”

A St. Paul Pioneer Press article  states that in 2010 there were 545 abortions conducted at Regions. Again, thanks to Pro-Life Action Ministries and to everyone else who helped close this place of sadness.
