Head of Planned Parenthood Security meets
the Resistance at Protest PP Riverside!
We were honored to have the Head of Planned Parenthood Security show up in Riverside to personally oversee the arrival of The Resistance!
He was cordial to Jeff White as he introduced himself and Jeff White responded accordingly. Then things began to get twisted. He assumed that being cordial was akin to being in agreement.
He let Survivors know that he knew all about The Resistance, including our plans to put a banner above the driveway entrance. He wanted to show he was deep inside the plans of the Survivors and The Resistance. What he didn't know is:
We don't care, we have nothing to hide, we are unafraid!
We are simply boldly confronting and exposing Planned Parenthood.
The head of security informed Jeff White that he had already called the police and said the banners were not legal but that he would allow them up for a few minutes for a photo op! He said after that we would have to take them down. Well, The Resistance certainly wasn't there for a photo-op, we were there for war against the evil deeds of PP. Jeff said, "Well, thank you, but we are going to keep the banner up -- we'll wait for the police to arrive."
Seconds turned into minutes and soon an hour had passed and still the banner stood. All who drove into the parking lot did so reading like a sign announcing the gates of hell. "Finally, when the police did arrive, there was not even a discussion of the banner -- just the usual warning against blocking sidewalks.
Moral of the story: Planned Parenthood doesn't tell The Resistance what the law is and certainly doesn't dictate how we will express our outrage at their murder of babies and the selling of baby parts, cordial or not.
But Planned Parenthood has only seen the beginning of The Resistance!
There is another all-day protest on Halloween, October 31st, between 8am and 5pm and it will be a haunting day indeed for Planned Parenthood. Join us and RSVP on Facebook or email us at Resist@Survivors.LA.
But the day was much more than banners and chants and staring each other down.
There was a baby saved and that is what it is all about! The sidewalk counselor, Vanessa, may look to some like a crazed woman chasing mothers down to give them lifesaving literature as she begs them to make a different choice, but to us, she is beautifully busy about her Father's business. Some would criticize her approach, but we were so thankful she was there.
Suddenly she cried out, "YES! she is leaving the clinic! A baby is saved!" She loudly celebrated her good news with tears and hugs to participants standing by. God used Vanessa mightily on Saturday, and a child was saved from abortion.
We love people like Vanessa. People who throw reputations and appearance to the wind to defend and protect the preborn. She continually endures the pain of witnessing moms take their preborn children into the abortion clinic to be killed, yet still she keeps a godly attitude and persistently prays for them while they are inside the abortion mill. This is practiced love and obedience to the Lord. Sidewalk counseling is a frightening and intimidating area of pro-life ministry. But it is also one of the most important and vital places for the pro-life activist to be. It is the front lines in the abortion battle. Abandon personal limitations and allow the Lord to use you to save His children!
The day of the event saw over 200 people (mostly young people) attend the #ProtestPP event in Riverside, CA. They grabbed signs and spread out, sure to canvas the entire neighborhood with messages of hope and exposing Planned Parenthood's illegal practices of trafficking baby body parts. The message was clear: We won't be silent about Planned Parenthood's grisly trade. It was a beautiful morning as people from different denominations, young and old, shy and bold, came together to protest and to pray for the end of Planned Parenthood, and the end of abortion.
Survivors has prayed and worked to raise up a generation of young people who will be like Vanessa and be busy about their Father's business. The Resistance is looking for young people dedicated to defending and protecting preborn children to join us in this fight. Our dream is to see an army of young people rise up in California to storm their local Planned Parenthood clinics and not relent until they close their doors for good!
