Your presence and voice can be life-changing for a woman about to enter an abortion clinic or a woman who looks worried or unsure of what she would like to do. That’s why the Pro-Life Union established “Newby Saturday” to help first-time, or fairly newer witnesses, become effective in their approach to help women choose life for their unborn baby.

Newby Saturday occurs on the second Saturday of each month from 10 am-12 pm outside Planned Parenthood at 12th & Locust Sts. in Philadelphia. (Fact: 4,231 abortions occurred at this clinic in 2018.)

These events are designed to answer the following questions:

  • Is there a brochure I can hand to women?

  • Do I have to/can I talk to anyone?

  • Where can I stand?

  • What are the yellow-vested ‘escorts’ doing?

  • Is there anything I should or shouldn’t do?

  • Some people are praying the rosary, but I don’t do that; what else can I do?

  • Is everybody going inside the building getting an abortion?

  • Is there a way to tell if a woman has arrived for an abortion?

  • What are those brown bags women are carrying out?
