Taking Action on Pro-Life Issues in Oregon
The pro-life movement has garnered a lot of attention within the last few decades. As more scientific evidence comes to light in support of life, a Biblical worldview on the inherent value of human life from womb-to-birth continues to be upheld. Yet despite the everyday victories we see, there are still fights that must be won, whether in the political or social spheres of influence. You may be wondering, how can we continue to lovingly show the world that human beings are more than clumps of cells that make a person? Here’s a couple of ways:
Sign the petition to end taxpayer funding of abortions in Oregon. Click this link for more details and to sign the petition.
Also, we would like to encourage you to attend a special event called Speak Life with Gianna Jessen, a survivor of a late-term abortion and a power-packed speaker. Listening to Gianna’s powerful testimony will undoubtedly be a blessing to those who attend. This is a unique and incredible opportunity in Bend and Corvallis that is not to be missed!
Speak Life! With Gianna Jessen
When: Monday, May 21st, 6:30-8:30pm (also in Corvallis on May 20, see below)
Where: St Francis of Assisi Church (2450 NE 27th St, Bend, OR)
“Here on behalf of Oregon Life United, a group petitioning to eliminate tax-funded abortion in Oregon, Gianna will truly speak life in her presentation.
Gianna Jessen was intended to be a nameless statistic, just one of a million lives lost to abortion in the United States the year she was born. Instead of death, though, Gianna survived a late-term saline abortion and entered the world two months premature and weighing just two-and-a-half pounds.
The failed abortion gave Gianna the ‘gift’ of cerebral palsy, as she calls it: ‘It allows me to really depend on Jesus for everything.’
Her story of overcoming unspeakable challenges, and message of hope, has been shared in some of the greatest halls of government — including at the British and Australian parliaments, and before the U.S. Congress.
Gianna Jessen and other inspiring speakers will equip you to be a stronger voice for pregnant women and their pre-born babies. You’ll hear a remarkable testimony about finding healing after abortion, and resources from local pro-life ministries will be made available after the program.”
If you live in the Valley area of Oregon, Gianna Jessen will also be in Corvallis on May 20th, 6:30pm to 8:30pm at Calvary Corvallis Church (2125 NW Lester Ave).
Also, Abby Johnson will be speaking on May 31 in The Dalles and June 1 in Lake Oswego.
