January is the busiest month for LIFE as we enter the 44th year of Roe v Wade, the Supreme Court decision in 1973 legalizing abortion, which resulted in over 50 million babies killed and millions of women wounded for a lifetime. See all the events below.
A young man stopped by the Sidewalk Friday with a very important message, encouraging everyone to continue standing up for LIFE! Your sign saved the life of his son or daughter. See the inspiring story below!
If you are Bus Captain from the Sacramento region, heading to the Walk for Life in San Francisco this Saturday, I have 40 Days for Life flyers for you to share with your passengers. Please come to the Sidewalk, 1442 Ethan Way, Thursday or Friday from 9am to 11am to pick up your 40 Days for Life flyers in time to pass them out on your bus this weekend! See you in San Francisco!

He said, "I wanted to let you know that I drive by here frequently and see you guys out here... I go to school at the nearby Med-Tech program around the corner. Recently my fiance told me she is pregnant. At first, we were thinking we're too young, we're not finished with school yet, maybe it would be better if we waited until we're more settled, you know...." without really finishing his sentence specifically, but the significance of his quandary was enormous and obvious to us both.
Then, he started tearing up with emotion as he continued, "As we were thinking about
what we would do, one thing came to mind. I've seen a sign here you people have that says, 'Take my hand, not my life'. I told my fiance about that sign. That sign saved my child's life."
He just wanted to stop by and offer encouragement to everyone who stands out there in the cold, the rain, wind, and heat of summer. Without even saying a word, without even passing out a pamphlet, just your presence saved a child's life, a child who is a son or daughter, a grandchild, a niece or nephew and who will someday likely grow up to have a family of their own. So many peoples' lives will be impacted by just this one child.
He readily took a supply of everything we had, while also taking notes on a pad of paper regarding the details of fetal development so that he could share the information with confidence and accuracy.
We shook hands, both of us filled with emotion, as he again profusely thanked us for simply being present there at the Sidewalk, saving the life of his son or daughter.
The abortion clinic escort saw and heard this incredible story unfold. I wonder what was going through her mind, as she spends her days there making sure women are quickly ushered in for abortion. Interestingly, she always leaves after the morning arrival rush, deciding not to be there when the same women come out hours later, hurt, crying, bleeding, and puking, walking wounded for the rest of their lives.
I don't personally have this sign, but Joan and Barry are two volunteers who do have this sign. They are faithful. Glory to God for using the faithful service of these humble volunteers to save lives.
Thousands of children are alive today because someone was there. Please find your nearest abortion business and go, simply be present.
We are at 1442 Ethan Way, Sacramento, on Wed-Thurs-Friday mornings from 9:00 am to 11:00 am year-round because those are the mornings when abortions are done. Come save a life, come be that reason a woman changes her mind and chooses life, receiving the help and resources she needs when facing an unexpected pregnancy.
Here in Sacramento, we continue our life-saving prayerful presence at 1442 Ethan Way year-round on abortion mornings, Wednesday, Thursdays and Fridays, from 9:00 am to 11:00 am.
Here is a schedule and contact person for each abortion business location in our region:

5. Sacramento Planned Parenthood 29th and B Street, Sacramento, the largest abortion business in our region, with both the highest number of babies killed and women hurt, but also this location was involved with Fetal Harvesting of baby body parts, with abortions done here to 20 weeks of pregnancy. There are several groups that go and pray at this location. Email Lori if you are interested in going! John's group prays there on Tuesdays. Contact John by email for more details.
Here is an inspiring video provided by Lori to describe the ministry at the Sidewalk:
Please watch this beautiful video from the Imperial Valley Pro-Life Community as they prepare 3,000 candle-light luminaries in their community park to convey the number of lives lost to abortion each day.
