On Wednesday August 12, the Pro-Life Action League will be coming to Rockford to help us show the truth that abortion kills a child to the people of Rockford. We need your help. Saving the lives of our preborn sisters and brothers is the responsibility of every person of good will. Because our media and cultural outlets refuse to show the public what abortion really is we have to expose this tragedy to public.
Rockford will never reject abortion until Rockford see’s abortion.
Standing on the streets of Rockford exposing what abortion does to a child is not easy but it is an act of love for children and for those who have been sold the lie of the culture of death. Showing the truth of what abortion does to a child has also saved lives right here in Rockford by:
1. We have been told directly during a face the truth tour by more than one mother who was scheduled for an abortion that after seeing these pictures, "I could never do that to my baby."
2. We were told by a person at the Rockford Area Pregnancy Care Center that after a Rockford Face the Truth tour mothers have come in for help because after seeing the reality of abortion they could not go through with it.
3. Every year we hold a well organized Face the Truth tour we see the number of abortions drop in Rockford for many weeks following while the reality of abortion is still fresh in the hearts and minds of the people of our city.
4. Not only does the Rockford Face the Truth tour touch the hearts of mother and fathers considering abortion but it has a profound effect on the people who might have advised and encouraged a mother to have an abortion.
5. We as a community have killed over 50,000 of our children right here in Rockford by abortion. The people of Rockford need to see the truth of what we have done and are doing to, "The least of His people." Because the truth has the ability to "set us free" from the killing of our own children.
Please join us at any or all of these locations as a witness to life and love for Jesus Christ and the people of Rockford – togeather in Christ we can bring an end to the killing of preborn children in Rockford. If you have any questions or comments please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

"Face the Truth"—Public Education Initiative
We Need Your Help To Save Babies
Throughout the year, pro-life activists all around the country are conducting Face the Truth tours. Holding pictures of beautiful unborn babies and huge graphic signs of aborted babies, we line the roads at major intersections, to show Americans the truth about abortion.
We need you to help show people that abortion is the deliberate taking of an unborn child’s life. If you believe that abortion is murder, this is your chance to stand up and be counted. Join us this summer as we line the roads at major intersections to show our fellow Americans the ugly truth about abortion.
Go Forth and Teach
Jesus told His followers to "go forth and teach." Face the Truth responds to the Gospel call by teaching the truth about abortion. The truth is that abortion kills innocent human beings, made in the image and likeness of God. That is why we must take the pro-life message to the streets of our cities.
We are living in the midst of a national atrocity. Since the 1973 Supreme Court abortion decisions, over forty million children have been destroyed before they were born. Our signs depicting prenatal life and the aborted child reveal the hidden victims of this atrocity.
While the signs are displayed along the roadways, other volunteers distribute literature to passing motorists and pedestrians to help them understand the gravity of the Culture of Death.
Pictures Expose Lies
Photographs and films of human beings stacked like cordwood outside Nazi concentration camps exposed the murderous truth of Nazi genocide. Disturbing as these images are, we all recognize the value of squarely facing the truth of the Holocaust.
Similarly, our pictures of aborted children lay bare the blatant lies and hypocrisy used by the abortionists to conceal the wholesale slaughter of unborn babies. Photos of these aborted children rip off the mask of "choice." The truth hurts, but the lie hurts so much more. Once people have faced the truth, they are less likely to become involved in abortion.
A Graphic Reminder
When Christ died for us, it was in a very graphic way—a public crucifixion. His body, twisted, disfigured and covered with blood, hung on a cross for three hours in full public view. He said He had to be lifted up in order to show His love for us and to show us the seriousness of sin.
Likewise, our pictures graphically portray the reality of abortion in the public square, and show the seriousness of taking the life of an unborn child.
The Tragedy of the Culture of Death
One of the tragedies of abortion is that innocent children cannot be sheltered from the truth that one-third of their brothers and sisters, classmates and friends have been aborted. We use large warning signs to help parents shield their children from our pictures, but the only way to really protect our children is to stamp out the Culture of Death. We invite all concerned parents to join us in restoring a Culture of Life.
Awaken the Nation
Nationwide, Face the Truth Tours are showing Americans the hidden slaughter of its unborn children. If people are troubled by these graphic pictures, they should stand up against the killing the pictures expose. We need your help to make our neighbors face the truth. Join us!
