Four days from now is the start of one of my favorite pro-life events of the year: the Chicago area “Face the Truth” Tour, sponsored by Generations for Life’s parent organization, the Pro-Life Action League.
From July 11th – 19th, we’ll be visiting 24 sites in and around Chicago, standing alongside busy streets, showing pictures of abortion victims and passing out brochures that offer help to women experiencing an unplanned pregnancy or who need post-abortion counseling. Over those eight days, we’ll reach hundreds of thousands of people.
The most amazing thing about a Face the Truth Tour is that the pictures we show actually save lives. In fact, when we were in downtown Chicago during last year’s Tour, a man approached us and told us that 13 years ago, a good friend of his had just found out his girlfriend was pregnant. They decided to have an abortion, but then they came across a Face the Truth Tour and saw what abortion does to a baby. After that, they changed their minds, and chose life for their baby instead.
Their daughter is now 13 years old, which means that she was saved on our very first Tour back in the year 2000. This girl is one of hundreds—and maybe thousands—of babies whose lives have been saved at Face the Truth Tours over the years.
I would like to invite you to take part in our Face the Truth Tour starting this Friday. All you need to do is show up to any of the 24 sites in and around Chicago and we’ll give you a sign to hold.
I hope you won’t want to miss this opportunity to participate in this powerful pro-life event!
