Fundraising Campaign: Strive to raise (or contribute) at least $262 annually for Pro-Life beneficiaries (guidance).
Prayer: Raise your heart & mind by saying the LIFE Runners Creed (prayer), especially just before group runs and races. During your training and the race, pray for an abortionist, a pregnant mother in crisis, and an unborn baby in danger.
By the numbers: Abortion is leading cause of death in America (1,200,000/yr), followed by heart disease (600,000/yr) and cancer (575,000/yr). 22% of pregnancies end in abortion; 35% of mothers have had an abortion; 3,300 children die from abortion each day; 64% coerced; and 84% felt like they had no choice (so much for pro-choice). Why won’t Planned Parenthood let mothers see ultrasound before abortion? Because they know that 87% will see their baby and choose Life! 82% of post-abortion mothers said just one supportive person would have changed her mind. These are mind-changing #’s, please share, then hearts change and more babies get to live!
Komen Statement: LIFE Runners acknowledge the beneficial work of Susan G. Komen for the Cure in the area of breast cancer research. However, LIFE Runners do not support Komen because they allow affiliates to offer financial support to abortion providing facilities, deny studies showing abortion as a possible link to breast cancer, and endorse embryonic stem cell research (based on these facts). Without participating (no registering/racing), LIFE Runners are encouraged to wear their “REMEMBER The Unborn, Jer 1:5″ jersey at Komen events as a witness for the unborn and a way to peacefully speak out against Komen’s support of Planned Parenthood. LIFE Runners are strongly discouraged from registering for Komen races because we don’t want to contribute even a single penny of potential abortion blood money to Planned Parenthood through Komen. We also don’t want LIFE Runners to crash (no registration) Komen races because this could discredit the integrity of our mission. Code of conduct: www.liferunners.org/be-attitudes.
Thank you for helping to save Unborn children (and their families)…All In Christ for Pro-Life!
