California March for Life and Lobby Day

By | California | No Comments

CWA of California Hosting Prayer Vigil at March for Life

By | California | No Comments

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you
 before you were born I set you apart;
I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
Jeremiah 1:5

 

The California government is sending the message to its citizens that abortion at any stage for any reason is safe and encouraged, which sends the message that there is only one answer to unplanned pregnancy—abortion. This false narrative affects our culture in a very dangerous and terrible way by devaluing the sanctity of life. 

 

There is hope and healing in unplanned pregnancies. Networks of churches, pregnancy health centers, and medical clinics provide nurturing environments that give free support, from prenatal care to counseling and adoption services to diapers and other childcare supplies. Babies in the womb are precious and sacred. We must send the message of redemption and protection of life. 

 

Please join Concerned Women for America (CWA) of California at our prayer vigil that precedes the California March for Life. At the prayer vigil, CWA of California Prayer Chapter Leaders, pro-life pastors, and directors of local crisis pregnancy centers and medical clinics will be joining me in praying for our state and nation at the State Capitol in Sacramento. It will be a solemn time of blessing.

 

Here are the details:
Date: Wednesday, June 22
Time: 9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.
Location: State Capitol in Sacramento

 

The power of prayer is effective and necessary. Please come join us! Spread this information to your church network, friends, and family. Click here for a flyer to share.

 

In 2 Chronicles 7:14, the Bible encourages us to meet together to pray. This highlights the value of fellowship in Jesus’ name. We should seek to gather together as the body of Christ to experience the Lord’s presence and blessings.

Marching for Life Prayer Warriors

By | Virginia | No Comments

By Dorana Sylvia, CWA of Virginia’s Stafford Prayer/Action Chapter Leader

 

I was absolutely overwhelmed by the love and joy I experienced at the Virginia March for Life. It was refreshing to see so many people in prayer, both young and old, marching with the common goal of celebrating life! I rejoice that I was able to have my three sons and my mother join me on this special day with my Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Virginia family.

 

The Lord moved me to share my testimony, with many at the March, of having once been a late-term abortion ultra-feminist activist. I had believed the lie, yet God had a plan for my life. The common question was, “What made you change?” My response was a simple one, “Jesus Christ and the prayers of faithful Christians.”

 

God strategically placed in my path to get my attention survivors of abortion, children who had been conceived through incest, and rape victims who had kept their babies. How could I ever again advocate for abortion?

 

The people I met at the Virginia March for Life are those warriors who continue to pray for the lost and for God to save and restore those affected by abortion. While at the March, I never heard an insult toward women who have had abortions or were considering abortion. The message was clear: God is love, He is a forgiving God, women are not alone in their pregnancy, and God alone owns life.

 

The Enemy may try to come after our families and our children, but he is no match for my Savior, the Hope of the world, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Marching for Life in D.C.

By | Virginia | No Comments

By Ashley A. Reich, CWA of Virginia’s Lynchburg Prayer/Action Chapter Leader of the evening group.

On Friday, January 21, I joined thousands of people who met on the lawn of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., for the annual March for Life. The morning brought below-freezing temperatures, but the crowd was enthusiastic and knew their mission was greater than what weather could throw at them. Groups gathered at the National Mall all morning and enjoyed a concert prior to the many renowned speakers and elected officials.

Students, parents, children, and supporters were present, and many dressed in similar attire that represented their specific school or organization. Many carried signs, banners, and flags expressing their pro-life stance of “We ARE THE POST-ROE GENERATION,” “Love them BOTH,” “Voice for the Voiceless,” “Pro-Life is Pro-Woman,” and so many more. As the march began, you could hear the chants and cheers for the unborn as the crowd walked a mile to the steps of the Supreme Court. Along the way, many conversed about their beliefs and hopes for the upcoming cases such as the Texas Heartbeat Bill and Dobbs v. Jackson, and ultimately, an end to Roe v. Wade.

Please continue to be in prayer for these monumental cases over the next few months leading up to the final decisions. Join Concerned Women for America (CWA) in praying for the Dobbs case on the fourth Monday of every month until June, when a decision is expected to be handed down. If you would like to be regularly notified about the current issue of the day, as well as CWA’s monthly Dobbs webinar prayer call, be sure to sign up for e-alerts if you haven’t already.

We cannot sit by and allow the radical pro-abortion agenda to succeed in our nation and state.  As we link arms together, we protect the innocent lives of those who cannot protect themselves and reverse the current culture to one that honors life from conception to natural death.

I look forward to seeing you at the march!  Please share this alert with your family and friends.

“And let us not lose heart and grow weary and faint in acting nobly and doing right, for in due time and at the appointed season we shall reap, if we do not loosen and relax our courage and faint.” – Galatians 6:9

CWA CEO and President at 2020 March for Life with President Donald Trump

Women Lead the Pro-Life Movement

By | Blog, CEO, News and Events, Sanctity of Life | No Comments

President and CEO of CWA, Penny Nance, wrote the following article about the reality of abortion and how the pro-choice movement is not pro-woman:

It’s a staggering number: 56 million.

That’s the number of precious lives that have been lost to abortion since the Supreme Court’s ruling on Roe v. Wade in 1973.

On Wednesday, our nation marked the 47th anniversary of this tragically misguided decision. While many supporters of the pro-choice movement today uphold a woman’s right to choose as honoring to women, it is anything but.

As the president of the nation’s largest public policy organization for women, Concerned Women for America, I have talked with many women who have been devastated by their choice to abort. The entire latest episode of my podcast focused on this topic. Women have shared with me how their abortions sent them into relentless cycles of depression, anxiety, and addiction. They tell me how they constantly struggle with shame.

Women have abortions for different reasons. Some are young and afraid of the repercussions from parents or partners. Some face abuse. Some are in dire financial straits. But they all receive similar promises at abortion clinics. They are promised that having an abortion will give them their life back. They are promised that the procedure will be quick and painless. They are promised that their unborn child is just a mass of tissue.

They are being lied to.
