Planned Parenthood surprises 40 Days for Life
Well, at the time I'm writing this, there's just over three hours until registrations begin for the Spring 40 Days for Life campaign (that takes place from February 6 - March 16).
As you can imagine, things are really crazy here!
We've been scrambling to prepare everything for the launch of the next wave of nationwide 40 Days for Life campaigns...
...And Planned Parenthood has just given us an early Christmas gift!
Minutes ago I received an e-mail broadcast sent to abortion advocates across the country from Planned Parenthood's national president, Cecile Richards.
In the message, she characterizes 40 Days for Life campaigns as "unprecedented assaults on Planned Parenthood".
Richards states, "from the anti-choice hardliners who badgered local officials to try to shut down our new clinic in Aurora, to the '40 Days for Life' protesters who picketed clinics across the country this fall -- we are seeing an escalating level of threats to our clinics... So far, thanks to the actions of people like you, we've overcome these attacks. But to meet the challenge of the coming year, we will certainly need your help."
Wow -- the largest abortion chain in America is clearly feeling the pressure from your focused prayer and fasting. It must be time to turn up the heat even more!
(This was, after all, the FOURTH mass e-mail the organization has sent out about 40 Days for Life since September... And I don't believe it's any coincidence that her message was sent out on the same day when you have the opportunity to join the next wave of 40 Days for Life campaigns this coming Spring!)
Back to registrations...
I wrote a letter for you that explains everything you are going to get by joining the February 6 - March 16 campaign.
It took a lot longer to write this letter than I thought it would -- primarily because there's so much I needed to tell you about everything we're going to do to help your campaign succeed.
But I have to warn you... I ended up with a really long letter.
Please forgive the length. I know that many of you have studied the materials we gave you and already know that you want to register immediately... If that is your situation, then just skip down to the bottom, and click the big button to begin your registration process.
On the other hand, I know that some of you really want to know everything that's involved. If that's you, then I think we did a pretty good job of describing all the various components of the 40 Days for Life campaign.
If you fall into this latter category, there is one thing I want to stress... Registrations will be open for eight days -- until next Thursday, December 20 -- so don't feel too frenzied while reading the letter.
Take your time to go through the whole letter. In fact, it might be easier for you to print the whole thing out and read it on paper. Check out everything before you make your decision.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR REGISTERING:
Barring any last-minute technical difficulties, we plan to open the doors for registrations at exactly 9:00 PM Eastern time tonight.
I'll be sending you the direct link to the letter in just a few hours, but I knew I wouldn't have time to explain everything then, so that's why I sent you this advance "heads-up."
That's all I've got time for right now.
I'm excited to see what God has in store for America -- and for Planned Parenthood :-) -- this coming Spring as 40 Days for Life continues to gain momentum!
