Keep those phone calls and emails rolling. Sometimes it works, like at this Chili’s in California.
… Defund Planned Parenthood.
Planned Parenthood has been drinking at a lot of public troughs in the United States. Reductions are being considered in some states.
From the 40 Days for Life blog, Day 31:
Eileen in Beaumont recently witnessed some men who answered the call on what was otherwise a typical day on the job.
A truck from a heating and air conditioning contractor pulled up in front of the abortion center where the 40 Days for Life vigil is in progress. A couple of guys got out and saw the signs: “Pray to end abortion.”
“Do they do abortions in there?” asked one of the men. The volunteers responded, “Yes, they do!”
This man had not been aware of that. “We don’t do work for people who do abortions,” he said sharply, “and we will tell them so!”
With that, the two men went inside the abortion facility, came right back out, got in their truck and left.
“We want to encourage all businesses to be as brave as those folks,” Eileen said of the men who put principle above money. “Our world would be different if everyone took such a strong stand.”

Getting the message across in 33 seconds:
…Focus on the Family remains committed to seeing Roe v. Wade overturned. But in the meantime, I want to pose a challenge to Planned Parenthood and abortion activists. They continue to talk about abortion being “safe, legal and rare.”
Abortion by its nature is not safe. It’s certainly not safe for the child and in some cases, like we’ve seen with Dr. Gosnell, it’s not even physically safe for the mother. That’s not to mention the long-term emotional devastation that often accompanies this tragic choice.
As I ponder the heaviness of the moment, here is where I think the Lord is leading us:
We will continue to march toward that day when every life is seen as sacred. That is our ultimate aim. In the meantime, I continue to think about the babies that we’re losing right now. It’s time that we sit down with abortion advocates and lay down a challenge. In essence, say to them: “You want to make it rare? Tell us how.”
We won’t ever agree that it’s safe or that it should be legal. We’ll continue to fight for the day that we can overturn Roe v. Wade, because every life is sacred. But I see this as a positive step forward in that fight.
I take my hat off to all those who have labored with such dedication and sacrifice to advance the pro-life cause over these last few decades. Over the years, you, and we, have done great things to incrementally improve a very evil reality. Babies have been saved. Hearts have been changed. But it doesn’t appear we’re going to reach our ultimate goal of eliminating abortion any time soon. So what do we do right now to save more babies this year that will be lost if we don’t sit down and see how we can make it more rare?
Again, this doesn’t mean we agree. We will not compromise our convictions. But how do we save more children who would otherwise be aborted?…
