Help needed nights at the Women's Care Center

Posted - July 7, 2022 - 11:45AM CDT

Please read the letter from PSD Ron Fuast regarding help needed nights at the Women's Care Center on Orin Road.  Men are asked to volunteer in pairs to help secure the building during overnights.

My Dear Brother in Christ,

As you know, various radical groups, in reaction to the U.S. Supreme Court recently overturning the infamous 1973 Roe vs. Wade (and, by implication, Doe vs. Bolton, and other decisions), are threatening churches and organizations that provide direct help to women with distressed pregnancies.

The Women's Care Center, located directly across the street from the Planned Parenthood abortion mill on Orin Road, is an obvious potential target.

Observers are needed to stay inside at the care center overnight to discourage vandalism and sabotage.  We are in need of about 60 men so that each volunteer can figure on serving one night per month with a buddy.  I have already done this one time and will do so again.

If you are willing to volunteer one night per month, please let me know ASAP.  And if you have any questions, please let me know that too!  You can email me or text me at my number below.

Blessing to you always,
                                     Ron Faust

PS Feel free to pass this along to other men of good will.
