Will she get to walk a mile in her shoes?
On Tuesday, April 16, Planned Parenthood will plaster the web with the Not In Her Shoes campaign for their Virtual Lobby Day. We need your help – yes, you! – to turn it around on them.
Planned Parenthood is encouraging women to tweet and blog and otherwise post online photos of their shoes, with pithy captions about how don’t nobody know what it’s like to walk in my shoes, m’kay?
See, these people are still trying to convince us that it’s okay for them to get paid to take the lives of innocent humans, because they do it for really, really good reasons.
Not money. No way. Has nothing to do with money. Nope.
In response, Texans for Life Coalition plans to out-lobby the lobbyists with Virtual Pro-Life Lobby Day, a Not In Her Shoes campaign of their very own that will make Planned Parenthood’s message look even more dumb and shallow than it already does.
The best part: you can be involved!
A pro-choice woman has contacted Texans for Life due to serious concern about the care she received when undergoing an abortion procedure in Dallas.
She is not the only one concerned; her doctor has been sued by three patients.
One of them has a severely brain damaged infant. One of them no longer has a uterus. One of them went to the ER after her abortion with half of her 22-week fetus still inside her and a lacerated uterus and colon.
Despite having had his hospital privileges revoked due to a heinous record, this doctor is still committing abortions in Dallas.
That’s why Texans for Life and other pro-life groups are supporting legislation which will prohibit doctors who have no hospital admitting privileges within thirty miles from performing abortions.
On January 19, 2013, what started in Dallas will begin to end in Dallas, as we mark the 40th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision with the 2013 Dallas March for Life.
This year’s theme is Exodus 20:13. Aptly, 2013 is more than just the 40th anniversary of Roe. It’s also the Exodus verse that tells us: Thou shalt not kill.
For forty years, our country has wandered in the darkness of the shadow cast by the Roe decision, lost in a wilderness of immorality in which a culture of death has flourished and overrun our nation.
This year, we are committed to making the Dallas March for Life a passionate, unforgettable coming together of Texans committed to ending the scourge of abortion.
On March 17, thirty-nine women — one to represent each year since the Roe v. Wade decision — will walk from the Planned Parenthood abortion mega-clinic in Houston to the federal building in Dallas where the Roe case was originally filed, arriving on Good Friday, April 6. These women will walk 250 miles in 21 days, averaging about 12 miles a day.
According to their website:
They will leave everything behind to embark on this symbolic journey depicting America’s tragic path of abortion, taking a radical stand for life as they share their personal stories of how abortion has impacted each of their lives.
During this prayer journey, a video documentary team with an Internet channel will stream the walk live, daily featuring a young woman’s account of how abortion has affected her life. Some of these women are post-abortive, some are survivors of abortion; others are those who have been stirred by this national calamity and have come to walk for life because of their passion for the issue. Together, these women represent the stand for life in the midst of a culture of death.
The 39 women walk for various reasons. Erdoo says, “I am walking to bring awareness to the injustice of Black genocide at the hands of the abortion industry.” Summer says, “I am walking because, when I was 16 years old I had a traumatic abortion experience and I remember feeling the pain of my baby being sucked from my womb…” Melissa says, “I am walking on behalf of the unborn. I was scheduled to die but in one moment everything changed.”
Just a friendly reminder that the movie I had the pleasure of seeing recently, Doonby, opened yesterday in Chattanooga and today in Dallas. If you’re in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, grab some friends and go see it. How it does in Dallas will determine how it will do across the country, and this is a story that needs to be told to an entire nation. It is by turns warm and thrilling, and its jaw-dropping ending alone is worth the ticket price.
Most of all, I firmly believe that this film, without preaching or shoving anything down anyone’s throat, can save lives.
Even if you’re nowhere near Dallas, please share this on Facebook and Twitter and Pinterest and Tumblr and MySpace (if you keep it old-skool).
Special Doonby Trivia: This movie was screened — and praised — by the Vatican, and yet it is not a religious movie. Curious? Go see it!
