5 Year Prayer Walk

Please join us in Germantown on Saturday, Jan. 23 at 9:00am for a 5 year “anniversary” prayer walk around the heart of Germantown.  We will gather on the grassy area on Wisteria in front of the development where Leroy Carhart’s late-term abortion facility is located.  Click here for directions and additional information: http://prayforgermantown.com/

We will be joined by over 300 youth from Nebraksa who are making the pilgramage to join us in prayer for an end to abortion in Germantown, MD.

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9

Maryland Court of Appeals (Glenn v. DHMH) video

Thank you for your overwhelming support and prayers regarding ‘Glenn v. DHMH.’  The court case went very well.  The ACLJ lawyer, Erik Zimmerman, did a fantastic job.  He very effectively argued why it is important for the court to decide the public information is released.  Here is a link to the archive video of the oral arguments: http://www.courts.state.md.us/coappeals/media/2015/coa20160111caseno48.mp4

Please continue to pray as the 7 judge panel deliberates their decision.  The decision is not expected for several months.

Maryland Court of Appeals (Glenn v. DHMH)

The Maryland Court of Appeals, the highest court in Maryland, will be hearing “Andrew Glenn v. Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene” on January 11, 2016.  Please pray for the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) lawyers who will be arguing the case.

Over three years ago, through a simple Public Information Request, Andrew Glenn asked for copies of the application for surgical abortion facilities in Maryland.  However, the copies of the applications received from the Maryland DHMH were redacted of certain information.  Largely in part because one of the Planned Parenthood locations told the DHMH not to release the information.  DHMH did exactly what Planned Parenthood asked them to do, and are keeping the public information out of the public eye. In Maryland, it appears Planned Parenthood has power over the DHMH.

In order to keep the information secret, the Maryland DHMH “sued” Andrew to keep the public information hidden from the public.  The court case has already been tried twice in Maryland, and Andrew lost both times.  Please pray the Maryland Court of Appeals will decide differently than the previous two hearings.  Pray the information will be revealed and the Maryland abortionists will no longer be able to hide behind the government.

5 years

This December marks 5 years since the arrival of Leroy Carhart in Germantown, MD.  On Sunday, December 6 at 5pm the Archdiocese of Washington will be having Mass at Mother Seton Parish (19951 Father Hurley Blvd) followed by a candlelight procession at 6:15pm.  The Mass will be celebrated by Bishop Mario Dorsonville.

In 2010, Leroy Carhart said we would be a “flash in the pan.”  I am glad to say his prediction did NOT come true.  The community and churches in Germantown have come together like never before to stand up against these tragic abortions.  Join us on Sunday to remember the thousands of lives that have been lost to abortion in Germantown, pray for the healing of the mothers affected by these abortions, and pray for the continued record number of saves that have witnessed over the past 5 year in Germantown.  There have been over 280 saves (that we know of).  Praise God!

“SAVED”

Outdoor Benefit Concert!

“To date, there have been more than 220 babies saved outside of late term abortionist LeRoy Carhart’s
office in Germantown due to the work of the sidewalk counselors and the vast team of people
who support them through prayer and other spiritual works.

Clearly, something special is happening in Germantown! To tell this gripping story a 30 minute broadcast quality video production, entitled “SAVED” is being created by Two Crown Productions, LLC.

This documentary is about the late-term abortions occurring in Germantown and can impact the national conversation about late term abortion concerning legislation to protect the unborn, and inspire others to respond to an abortion clinic nearby. YOUR HELP IS NEEDED to make this video a reality so that people can SEE what late term abortions look like, and realize that this is THE human rights issue of our day.”

Partnership with Bethany Christian Services

We have wonderful news! Germantown Pregnancy Choices (GPC) is now partnering with Bethany Christian Services, a global nonprofit organization, to save more lives in Germantown.

Bethany Christian Services’ pregnancy counselor will work with GPC volunteers to speak with abortion vulnerable clients about adoption. She will also use the office to meet with these clients in person to speak about giving another family the gift of life. The organization maintains an active list of prospective adoptive families who are excited to one-day welcome a new child into their home.

Here at GPC, we hope this partnership will directly translate into larger numbers of saved children here on the front lines of abortion in Germantown. Women in crisis pregnancies will now have a greater chance of realizing the life-giving options available to them.

Please check out Bethany Christian Services’ web site for more information on their organization http://www.bethany.org/.

Thank you for remaining steadfast, and continuing to be a part of this critical effort to save lives in Germantown. Please continue to lift up GPC volunteers and the families we serve in your prayers.

Sued by Maryland DHMH

Please pray!  Over a year ago I requested information through the Public Information Act regarding the recently passed Maryland Surgical Abortion Facility licensing requirements.  Part of the information I requested was withheld.  In order for the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene to continue withholding the information requested through the Public Information Act, they had to get the court to uphold their redaction.  As a result, I was “sued” by the Maryland DHMH.  For more information about “DHMH vs Andrew Glenn” see the article written by the ACLJ lawyer who is representing me in this court case http://aclj.org/abortion/demanding-truth-accountability-from-abortion-industry-in-court.

The Maryland judge sided with the DHMH and upheld the redaction of information.  I lost!  The ACLJ has appealed the case and now “Andrew Glenn vs. DHMH” is set to be heard by the Maryland Court of Special Appeals on March 3 in Annapolis Maryland.  Please pray for God’s will to be done.  Pray for the ACLJ lawyers representing me.  And pray for the information the state is withholding to be revealed to the public to keep the abortion industry and state accountable for their actions.  For more information on the appeal see the following article written by the ACLJ http://aclj.org/pro-life/aclj-continues-fight-to-hold-abortion-industry-accountable
