A few years ago, four brothers—all under age 10—raised hundreds of dollars for the Pro-Life Action League by pooling all their Halloween candy and giving it away for donations.
Now their big sister, 15-year old Jessica, has come up with her own creative way to support the pro-life cause.
Jessica is throwing a Mother's Day "Baby Shower" for pregnancy centers in Aurora to coincide with the monthly protest outside Aurora Planned Parenthood this Saturday:
The biggest needs are for diapers and gift cards to stores like Target, Jewel, or Babies "R" Us for moms in need.
Last Saturday, I received an e-mail from Mary Ann, a sidewalk counselor at Planned Parenthood Aurora.
She filled me in on the story of a young man who received the courage and exhortation he needed from Mary Ann and our other counselors to go into Planned Parenthood and stop his girlfriend from going through with the abortion.
Here's the story in Mary Ann's own words:
When I got [to Planned Parenthood] at 8:30 a.m., Mark, another sidewalk counselor, filled me in on a man who arrived after his girlfriend. The man didn't want her to abort their baby.
A statue of St. Gianna Molla was blessed by His Excellency Bishop Joseph Siegel during Mass at St. Patrick Church in Yorkville this Sunday as the next step in an exciting new project, and Eric Scheidler and I were blessed to be a part of the celebration.
The statue is the centerpiece of the St. Gianna Shrine on St. Patrick's grounds, which aims to be place of hope and healing for women who have suffered the loss of a child through miscarriage or abortion, or just want to find hope in the life and intercession of this holy and courageous woman.
The shrine will consist of a gazebo covering the statue set in a beautifully landscaped garden, and a pathway leading from the church to the shrine paved with bricks donated by supporters of the effort.
