Join Us for Three October Events for 40 Days For Life‏ in Chester County, PA

From Paulette Matthews
Chester County Pro-Life Coalition

  • Third Annual Baby Shower - October 3rd
  • Columbus Day Event
  • "The Drop Box” Movie Screening

Third Annual Baby Shower 

The fire storm that the employees of Planned Parenthood have wrought upon themselves by telling the truth, has placed them in the eye of the media more than we ever could. Our visible presence in front of PP is being noticed now more than ever and better understood. And how better to publicly demonstrate our love and caring for these women and children than having our baby shower again right in front of Planned Parenthood 8th S. Wayne and W. Market Sts.

On Saturday, October 3rd from 10 AM to 2 PM, Don and I will be walking with strollers in front of PP. Bring your stroller and walk with us and bring an item for the babies.

Again, we will be supporting Chester County Women Services in West Chester and the Birthrights in both West Chester and Coatesville.

You are encourage to use this event as another way to bring attention to the fact that October is Respect Life Month and if at all possible encourage your church and organizations to collect items for the babies and bring them down to PP with you.

New and used clothing up to size 4 are welcomed. Larger size diapers are always in demand. Also Dollar Store baby items are a blessing. Those one dollar items are a great way to help children become involve in life saving activities for the unborn. Everyone likes buying baby gifts and it is doable for the children. Whatever the Holy Spirit encourages you to do, it is beyond appreciated by the three pregnancy centers.

For every 1 Planned Parenthood, there are 51 crisis pregnancy centers. Only with God's blessing and our working together can a ratio like that be created.

Columbus Day * Oct 12th 8 AM to 8 PM

40 Days for Life in Chester County encourages all men of different organizations to come down and be visible protectors of life as you pray in front of the Planned Parenthood on 8th S. Wayne street.

Your presence sends the message that abortion is not just a women's issue but also a concern for men. You have been created by God to be the authors of life. This unique and intrinsic gift from God given only to men is so misunderstood. This is a perfect opportunity to share your concerns and commitment to family life where women do not cry because of abandonment and babies do not die due to the lack of responsible fathers.

Remember to sign up your hour using this link on the  vigil calendar so the day will be filled with men and their families in prayer celebrate the gift of life for all.

"The Drop Box” Movie Screening

When: Sunday, October 18th
Time: 12:15 PM
Where: Covenant Fellowship Church, 1 Fellowship Drive, Glen Mills PA 19342 (Just behind the Target and Home Depot on Rt. 1 and 322)
The Drop Box is a powerful documentary that tells the story of one man’s efforts to protect and care for newborn babies who might have otherwise been abandoned on the streets of Seoul, South Korea. Pastor Lee Jong-Rak built a “baby box”, a safe harbor to welcome and care for these babies. So far, more than 600 babies - many of whom have disabilities – have been helped through his heroic measures to embrace and protect the most vulnerable children in his community. It is a story of hope and a celebration of a simple reality: every human life is sacred and worthy of love.  (More info on the film here). 

There will be a pizza lunch during the screening beginning at 12:15pm and a brief panel discussion following. If you come for lunch, please consider a $3 contribution to pay for the pizza. If you are able to RSVP  here  -  it will help us in ordering.

"The Drop Box is a profoundly moving documentary that sheds much-needed light on the inherent dignity and mission of each human person, especially those with a serious disability. In a world that often emphasizes the need to be perfect, this real-life story gets to the heart of love, life, and the unique giftedness of every human being." - Jeanne Monahan, President, March for Life
