Pro-life hope for the future
Chris Lefebvre was among the pro-life crowd that attended the Planned Parenthood fundraiser at Market Square on May 6. Here’s her story.
Hope for the Future
Seven bright-eyed high school students stood in Market Square on a recent Friday night. Some of them held colorful hand-made signs defending life; others held signs exposing death. They came to stand with a small group of adults, including at least one post abortive woman. Together they formed a solemn semi-circle facing the stage where Planned Parenthood was holding its youth photo fundraiser called Framing Choice: What Choice Means to Me.
This small group had made the decision that Planned Parenthood would be confronted wherever they tried to promote their deadly deceptions. It wasn’t easy to devote a Friday night to standing vigil; some of the folks who passed by made hostile remarks and some gave us disgusted looks. Many more stopped to inquire and some even thanked us for being there. Some of the people who browsed the display told us afterward that they had no idea it was a Planned Parenthood event; there were no signs indicating the name of the organization and they were surprised to learn the name from us!
Many of us who were there on Friday night face these kinds of events with a certain degree of trepidation, but it never fails that, when all is said and done, we find abundant blessings in being willing to take a stand. This event was no different; the questions we were able to answer, the truth that was told about life and death and the seeds planted by that truth will bear fruit in uncountable ways. The most wonderful blessing of all was the presence of those seven courageous young people. They give us great hope for the future.
Please pray that God will guard them and add to their number. Pray also that Planned Parenthood will not go unchallenged whenever and wherever they try to promote their deadly work in our city.
