If you want to end abortion, sometimes you have to go straight to the source–the abortion facility. That’s exactly what hundreds of pro-lifers are going to be doing this weekend as part of Students for Life of America’s National Pro-Life Gen Sidewalk Day. They are going to be sidewalk counseling and offering resources and assistance for any women entering, or leaving, an abortion facility. Already, nearly 50 locations across 27 states are signed up for this weekend, not counting groups that regularly sidewalk counsel on the weekends too.
Think about that; thousands of women and men will drive someone to an abortion facility or go into the facility themselves this weekend, but before they do so, they’ll see peaceful, cheerful, pro-lifers outside praying for them and waiting to offer help if they choose not to go into the abortion facility. Even those who aren’t abortion-minded can find out about the life-affirming, and free resources, provided by higher-quality medical clinics who don’t commit abortions and don’t coerce women into abortions.
We know that even just seeing people outside of an abortion facility leads to a drop in people going to those facilities. Imagine the power of crowds of peaceful and loving pro-lifers outside abortion facilities across the country. Literally hundreds of preborn babies can be saved from the destruction of abortion.
There is still time to sign up for this amazing opportunity to save preborn lives and help women!https://t.co/qYu9J3KtvG

Students for Life Director of Programs, Lori Cascio, noted, “We’re excited to continue the National Pro-Life Gen Sidewalk Day for another year. Many people are familiar with the effect that sidewalk counseling had on convincing Abby Johnson to leave a Planned Parenthood, and we hope to have the same effect for people going to Planned Parenthood and other abortion facilities as either patients or as workers. ”

As we have noted before, “As a witness on the sidewalks in front of abortion facilities, you are the last face these women see before they enter. You are their final hope; the last opportunity to turn around. Many have already made up their minds, but you have the potential to impact them in such a way that they may reconsider.
The young women (and men) who are entering abortion facilities need to see someone on the sidewalk they can relate to. The turnaround rate is even higher when there are counselors who look like peers. That’s why we need you. “
If you cannot make it, please pray for a safe and successful Pro-Life Gen Sidewalk Day.
