The Fall 40 Days for Life campaign (Sept. 24 – Nov. 4) is set to begin in less than 2 weeks. 40 Days for Life is a great way to get involved and make a difference in your neighborhood. For more information about 40 Days for Life, visit their website at http://40daysforlife.com/ or watch this inspirational video http://vimeo.com/75359760.
There will be 7 locations in Maryland praying for an end to abortion this campaign: College Park, Germantown, Silver Spring, Baltimore, Fullerton, Annapolis, and Frederick. I encourage you to find the location nearest you and sign up to pray. God can use the simplest act of standing on the sidewalk for 1 hour to save a life.
Tragically, this month Leroy Carhart sent another patient to the hospital in an ambulance. This is Carhart’s 8th patient that has been rushed to the hospital in the past 2 years (that we know of)! Please pray for this patient and her family as she faces this medical emergency and difficult situation. Pray for her physical and emotional recovery.
How long will the Maryland Board of Physicians allow this to continue? How many more women need to be rushed to the hospital before they take action? How many more women need to die before they wake up and put a stop to this? Unfortunately we know Carhart will continue to send women to the hospital and more women will die at his hands until the Maryland Board of Physicans puts a stop to his reckless and dangerous abortion procedures.
Please politely contact the Maryland Board of Physicians to voice your concern over the dangerous procedures Carhart is performing in Germantown.
Contact: Maryland Board of Physicians
Voice: (800) 492-6836 or (410) 764-4777

Yesterday, one of Leroy Carhart’s patients was sent to the hospital. This is the 4th patient (that we know of) sent to the hospital in the past 13 months. And as we know, tragically one of these patients passed away last year after the abortion of her 33 week old child.
Please pray for the woman who is currently in the hospital. Pray for her physical, emotional, and spiritual healing. Pray that this tragedy will be used to help bring an end to the abortions performed in Germantown.

Please take advantage of an end of the year tax deductible donation by giving to the Maryland Coalition for Life http://donateMDCoalitionForLife.com. We appreciate your support and will use the resources to help bring an end to abortion in Maryland.
God has done amazing things in Germantown, MD over the past 3 years. The local churches have unified like never before to take a stand against the evil of abortion and to offer help and healing to women faced with an unwanted pregnancy. The catalyst for the Germantown pro-life movement happened 3 years ago when late-term abortionist Leroy Carhart began performing 2nd and 3rd trimester abortions in Germantown.
Since the arrival of Leroy Carhart, over 2,000 people from 30 local churches have gathered on the public sidewalk in front of Germantown Reproductive Health Services for approximately 4,500 hours to pray for an end to abortion in our community. Over the last 3 years, 125 babies have been spared from abortion. Praise God!
Please join us on Sunday, December 8 at 2pm in Germantown for a rally to mark 3 years since the arrival of Leroy Carhart in Maryland. We will remember the thousands of lives lost to abortion, pray for an end to abortion, and celebrate the amazing unity and momentum within the local pro-life movement and the 125 lives that have been saved from the hands of Leroy Carhart. The rally will be followed by a 1.2 mile prayer walk around the heart of Germantown.

The morning after pill also known as the abortion pill might become as easy to buy as aspirin.
Right now women can only buy Plan B if they can prove they are over the age of seventeen. Everyone else must see a doctor first. According to U.S. District Judge Edward Korman, the age limit is “arbitrary, capricious and unreasonable…” then ordered the end of the restrictions in thirty days. The Justice Department is deciding whether or not to appeal. President Obama believes the restrictions are common sense.
“There is a real danger that Plan B may be given to young girls, under coercion or without their consent…”said Anna Higgins of the Family Research Council. “The involvement of parents and medical professionals acts as a safeguard for these young girls. However, today’s ruling removes these common sense protections.”
Spokeswoman for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Deirdre McQuade, said, “Plan B does not prevent or treat any disease, but it makes young adolescent girls more available to sexual predators. The court’s action undermines parents’ ability to protect their daughters from such exploitation and from the adverse effects of the drug itself.”
It was the judge’s latest ruling in a lawsuit filed by the Center for Reproductive Rights and dating back to 2005 that pushed for unfettered over-the-counter access to Plan B.
The morning after pill contains a higher dose of the female hormone, progestin, than is in birth control pills. Its recommended use is within the first 24 hours of unprotected sex, but it can be used as late as seventy-two hours after the act. Proponents argue that the Plan B pill cannot induce an about because it has no effect one implantation has occurred. What they don’t say is that the super dose of hormones hardens the uterine wall so that the living embryo cannot implant. The very early life is destroyed.
That Plan B prevents implantation of fertilized eggs was dismissed by Judge Korman as discredited though he failed to present evidence that the prolife position lacked merit.
As we pause today to remember the death of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, let us also pause to remember why He died…so that He could Rise Again from the grave, conquer death, and offer the Gift of Eternal Life!!
Let us also praise God for the gift of 2 lives saved this week in Germantown!
Sunday, March 24 – 1 SAVE
An older man and young woman (visibly pregnant) from out of state arrived. They stayed in Carhart’s office for an hour, and then left before Carhart arrived. They did not return the rest of the week!
Monday, March 25 – 1 SAVE
Two woman arrived and talked with SWC. They left after having a sonogram, finding out the baby is 17 weeks old. She said that she was still deciding what to do…but she did not return this week!
Pray that Carhart does not come in on Easter this year (he was here last Easter). If he does go to church, pray the message regarding forgiveness and new life will cause him and his wife to stop abortions. Pray that his workers will be moved by Christ’s sacrifice to save them, that they will stop working in the abortion industry.
We pray the Easter celebration will encourage you and remind you that in God’s time and way the abortion battle will be won!
2 weeks ago, 2 lives were spared from abortion at the hands of Leroy Carhart. That makes a total of 90 lives (that we know of) that have been spared from death. Thanks in large part to the Prayer and Action of the community and prayer warriors that are at Germantown Reproductive Health Services week in and week out. Thanks for all you do!
Here is a recap of the last 12 saves in Germantown!
