Kentucky and Tennessee

Some of the most unexpectedly enjoyable moments on the UNITED tour have occurred at gas stations as we filled up the 75-gallon tank.

A number of folks have gotten out of their cars to share their stories, sign the bus … and sometimes even make a donation to help us with fuel.

We had gorgeous weather and a fabulous turnout at the Kentucky statewide rally in the heart of Louisville.

40 Days for Life board chair Matt Britton kicked off an event that also featured Jor-El Godsey of Heartbeat International, Brenna from Students for Life and Peggy from Silent No More Awareness.

Please pray for the abortion center worker with whom we had a brief, respectful dialogue on the sidewalk.


US Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn — chair of the House panel leading the investigation into Planned Parenthood’s barbaric practice of harvesting and trafficking in aborted baby body parts — fired up the crowd at a big UNITED rally in Nashville and joined other attendees in signing the bus.

We’re most appreciative to Jor-El Godsey from Heartbeat International for spending the whole day on the bus with us.

This was our 46th event in our 17th state … and we just surpassed 4,000 miles on this 18,500-mile journey!

St.Louis, Missouri

In the first week of this 40 Days for Life campaign, Brian in St. Louis reports four women turned away from Planned Parenthood and were referred to a life-affirming pregnancy resource center.

It wasn’t easy. Planned Parenthood wasn’t about to give up any customers.

A counselor was trying to talk to one of the moms, but a Planned Parenthood employee came rushing up to yell, “Don’t listen to anything she says!”

That frightened the young woman … but the counselor stayed calm and explained the free resources that were available at the pregnancy center right across the street.

In the end, she didn’t let the Planned Parenthood worker rattle her. She took up the offer of a free pregnancy test and ultrasound … and changed her mind about having an abortion.
