Happy New Year! I look forward to uniting our efforts in 2014 as we continue to make an impact together in our communities, county, and great Commonwealth.
Roe v. Wade turns 41 on January 19, 2014. Since then, almost 57 million developing babies have died through abortion.
Operation Rescue has concluded an exhaustive survey of abortion clinics in the U.S. and is pleased to announce that it has documented a record number of abortion clinic closures in 2013, during which time 87 surgical abortion clinics halted abortions. These numbers show that the pro-life movement is gaining ground and that the abortion industry is collapsing.
There are still over 580 surgical abortion clinics in this country that remain open … let us continue to roll up our sleeves and work together to make this a culture that honors all life in this nation and in our state. No matter what happens politically, we can still help women choose life for their babies. There is no law against saving lives!
On January 27th, the Williamsport Lycoming County Council of Republican Women will be hosting a special Pro Life Luncheon at the Genetti Hotel beginning at 12 noon. We are pleased and honored to have with us Elizabeth Greenaway, Marketing Director for Expectations Women’s Center in Williamsport and Howard Langdon. As an attorney in Muncy, Howard is a powerful pro-life speaker and for over twenty years has served as Chairman of the Lycoming County Life Chain Coordinating Committee. Elizabeth’s enthusiasm for life and the ministry to women facing crisis pregnancies will impact you greatly.
