How Speak for the Unborn Began
We are a group of Christians from Immanuel Baptist Church who heard a sermon on the sanctity of life by our pastor in January 2009 and made a commitment to no longer let our pro-life beliefs remain theoretical.
Therefore, we started a ministry called Speak for the Unborn in obedience to the passage found in Proverbs 31:8-9:
“Open your mouth for the mute, for the rights of all who are destitute.
Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy.”
The two main components of our ministry are sidewalk counseling and prayer. We go out to our local abortion clinic twice a week and seek to persuade women not to go through with their abortions and also stand and pray for the Lord to end abortion in our town. We are also seeking to mobilize other churches to do the same.
