Springfield Right to Life has moved its location to 536 N. Bruns Lane
(Suite 2) in order to be present for women and families that are seeking
guidance regarding the facts behind abortion. The new office is directly
across the street from the Planned Parenthood Abortion Facility.

“Springfield Right to Life is committed to informing the public on the
many choices available to those seeking abortions,” said Tim Moore, SRTL’s
President. Mr. Moore pointed to the many free or low cost alternatives to
Planned Parenthood that are available via such organizations a First Step
Women’s Center, or The Pregnancy Care Center, aid and training for moms
through Elizabeth Ann Seaton, or Beerlahai Roi, as well as Sangamon County
Health Department.

“We had been waiting for a while to move into the space. We wanted to be
easily available for those who are seeking abortions. We want families to
have an alternative source of information during such a critical decision.
We also wanted to be nearby for the many volunteers who come out to
quietly pray or peacefully protest the presence of Planned Parenthood’s
abortion facility in our community.

Our job is to continue to make the Springfield Community aware of Planned
Parenthood’s Operation in Springfield. In 2016, Planned Parenthood of
Springfield now expanded its abortions to include vacuuming the baby from
the uterus. In addition, PPIL distributes RU486, which is an abortion
pill that kills fetuses in-utero, many of which may already have a beating
heart. Heavy bleeding, nausea, vomiting, and painful uterine contractions
are common features of a process TIME magazine calls RU 486 “A painful,
messy, and protracted procedure.” About 2% of RU486 patients hemorrhage
and more than 1 in a 100 require hospitalization. An Iowa woman took RU486
and lost nearly 3/4 of her blood and likely would have died without
emergency surgery (http://www.nrlc.org/abortion/ru486/).

Springfield Right to Life operates under IRC 501 (c) (3)

Planned Parenthood is calling on lawmakers to protect access to healthcare by rejecting the American Health Care Act (AHCA). Planned Parenthood is calling the AHCA “the most dangerous bill for women’s health in a generation.”
Across the country Wednesday, including Springfield, Planned Parenthood and its supporters took to the streets to “Pink Out the Night”.

Under the healthcare proposal, federal funding for Planned Parenthood would be cut back, and the organization would lose access to Medicaid. Planned Parenthood says if the AHCA passes, it would be devastating for its patients in many ways.

Rich Owens, a board member at the Planned Parenthood of Illinois, explained, “They will lose family planning, they will lose prenatal services, they will lose STD testing, they will lose general healthcare.”
Planned Parenthood supporters were met by members of the Springfield Right to Life organization Wednesday night. Pro-life activists saying – yes, healthcare is important, but what exactly is healthcare? “When you are providing funds for abortion, abortion services, no matter what you want to call it that’s not healthcare, that shouldn’t be funded,” said Springfield Right to Life President Tim Moore.

Planned Parenthood in Illinois serves over 65,000 patients. The organization says abortions only make up about four percent of its services.

40 Days for Life is a focused, pro-life campaign to access God’s power through prayer, fasting, and peaceful vigil to end abortion. This year, we are inviting churches/parishes to “adopt” one of our 4 partner agencies.

Have you been wondering what you can do to abolish abortion and help those in crisis? Many ask the question “what can I do?” but don’t know how to go about it or feel small compared to the giant abortion industry and the millions of dollars they spend —trust me, you are not alone.

Join the #prolifegen this weekend: Tomorrow at the March for Life (January 27th) and Saturday at our East Coast National Conference (January 28th) in Upper Marlboro, MD (just outside of Washington DC)!

The SFLA East Coast Conference is a one-day event (with lunch & dinner included!) that provides education, training, and opportunities with national leaders who know just how vital this pro-life generation is to abolishing abortion in our lifetime.
Register NOW for the Students for Life East Coast National Conference.

If you can join us in person or online this weekend, we have just a couple of tips for you:

* To get your FREE “I am the Pro-Life Generation” sign or help us pass signs out to others at the March for Life, meet up with our team at 14th and Independence or 14th and Constitution.

* Throughout the March, please be sure to use our Snapchat filter and also use the hashtag #sfla2017 #whywemarch and #prolifegen!

* Following the March tomorrow, join the #prolifegen at the SUPREME COURT at 2:00 PM for a special event to culminate the day and send the message to America that this generation will abolish abortion!

* Our Students for Life National Conference starts at 9:30 AM on Saturday, January 28th. Make sure you prepare to leave early on Saturday morning, so you can get to the conference on time. Traveling to the conference by metro? No problem. Get off at the New Carrollton Metro Station at the end of the Orange Line. There will be a shuttle running every 45 minutes to the conference from 7:30am to 9:00am and taking participants back after the conference ends. (If you have any issues with the free shuttle, call Mark Roepke at 202-302-5446.)

* If your friends can’t be at the conference, make sure you send them this link to live stream the entire conference: www.sflalive.org!

* If you are coming to Washington, D.C. this weekend, the weather is predicted to be in the 40’s. However, we will march, and our Conference will go on no matter what the weather is. Rain, snow, sleet, etc. will not stop the #prolifegen! Get your what to wear packing list here: www.studentsforlife.org/how-to-dress-for-the-march-for-life/.

The power of unity and common cause can change the world. By attending the March for Life and the Students for Life East Coast Conference and extending the invitation to others (forward this email on!), you will be empowering and unifying our pro-life movement—and advancing our shared mission of abolishing abortion in our lifetime.
