17 Oct Going Voiceless for the Voiceless

Come here Bryan Kemper Speak this Saturday!

"I was surprised as to how much I prayed; I have never prayed that much in school, ever. There were originally five people doing it this morning and by the end of the day it doubled. I was super happy. You never know how many people are affected by the things you do."

"I attend a Baptist college so I knew I wouldn't get much of a chance to spread the word so after my last class I went down to the mall and was there for about 20 minutes before a group of teenage girls walked up to me and asked what I was doing. I handed them a paper and one started to cry. I took off the tape and asked what was wrong. I found out that 2 of those girls had just set up an appointment for an abortion. We sat and talked for almost an hour; it was clear that God was at work. Not only did these girls cancel the appointment but I had the privilege to lead them to the Lord."

"There was another woman considering abortion, so again I broke my silence and had a 15 minute tear-session/convo with her and she too opted for adoption! I'm so far beyond ecstatic and I am yet again radically affected by this!"

Those are stories from last year's Pro-Life Day of Silent Solidarity.

You can hear Silent Day founder, Bryan Kemper, speak this Saturday!

Equal Standards for Abortion

Right now, abortion clinics in Illinois operate under lower standards of care than other surgical clinics like foot and eye clinics. This is neither fair nor safe for women. Why the double standard? Why are abortionists not held accountable? HB 2321 requires abortion clinics to meet all the same health and safety standards as all other ambulatory surgical treatment centers.

Informed Choice

House Bill 786 simply requires that a woman seeking an abortion, after 6 weeks gestation, be offered the opportunity to view an ultrasound of her baby. Right now, there is no legal requirement to inform women of the choice that they're making. They can go through with an abortion without ever being offered an ultrasound. They can be lied to about the gestational age of their baby and they can be subjected to greater risks.
