Fox Valley Families Against Planned Parenthood

Jericho March Finale—Video and Pics

Posted by JT on Sunday, September 23rd, 2007

Jericho MarchThe Jericho March Finale brought together pro-life ministers and nearly 1000 supporters, all asking for God's intervention to keep the Aurora Planned Parenthood abortion clinic closed—and our Lord certainly has not disappointed!

I've posted a video that captures the sights and sounds from the event, especially the rousing speeches given at the press conference. And here are a couple of other great videos I saw on Youtube covering the Jericho March Finale.

    Hey, JT, GREAT job on the vid. I really enjoyed watching the speakers. I haven't got my hearing, so I wandered off and prayed during the speaking part of the rally. But my daughter mentioned the speakers to me and said how much she liked them! Very cool to actually see them. Thanks!

    Peace, JT

    JT, where can I find information on affordable women's health care in Aurora? Do you have a list perchance? Someone asked this information of me and I wanted to get back with her.

    You can search on "abortion alternatives" in google, or perhaps contact the Women's Center for more info:

    There are crisis pregnancy centers in the Fox Valley area and in Aurora. I don't know the names and phone numbers, but just google that. They will have a list of resources available.

    There is also the Visiting Nurses Association. And there must be some free or reduced-rate health care clinics in the counties of DuPage and Kane. Also, Catholic Charities should have information.

    Heres another Crisis Pregnancy Center started by Peter Breen in Lombard and Downers Grove. It was dedicated by the Bishop of Joliet. It's named "Women's Choice Services" (the name "choice" is in the name to give real choices to those women in need and re-claim the name from the Pro-Aborts who highjacked it and twisted its meaning).

    You will see bumper stickers on many cars with the phone number 888-4-HOPE-4-1 for this Crisis Pregnancy Center.

    Paul, Renee and Mike; Thanks so much for the information. I've made a file of it, so I can pass it along. And taking back the "choice" word is a good one Mike. I have only spoken to a few pro-have-an-abortion-if-you-want people and they not only twist the meaning of choice, they twist everything you say. You answer their questions, and they come back saying you didn't and "twist" the SAME question all over again. Does it really ever help to talk to a woman/man who is an angry/hurt/cynical pro-choicer? I think maybe after your initial try or tries, it isn't anymore. That these people can be helped only by Christ Our Lord through our many prayers. What do you say to someone that is so filled with animosity toward the pro-life stance (yet wants to debate!)?

    Here is a handbook all Pro-Lifers should own. It has answers to all the Pro-Abort arguments they can possibly bring up. It will fit in your back pocket. Here's a link to the book…

    By the way, our Lombard Montini Catholic Bronco football team is 4-0 and is looking awesome this year!

    Hey Mike, thanks for the link to the book. Do you attend Montini as a student, faculty? Or are you an alumni? My husband, Tom (Fighting Irish Thomas) graduated from Montini. So did his 5 brothers and 2 sisters. 4-0, that is awesome. Better than 0-4. Poor Notre Dame. Humbling! Thanks again for the link.

    From Wikipedia…
    "Essentially, a special use permit is something a land developer seeks under a zoning regulation that is only allowed if permission is granted by the political authority charged with making the decision.

    Land use is governed by a set of regulations generally known as ordinances or municipal codes. Within an ordinance is a list of land use designations commonly known as zoning. Each different type of zone has its own set of permitted uses. These are known as by-right uses. Then there is an extra set of uses known as special uses. To build a use that is listed as a special use, a special use permit must be obtained.

    Special use permits are an extra step that a developer must go through to receive approval to build a project. Usually a public hearing must be held by a plan commission and a City Council or other legislative body. With the decision in the hands of political authorities, receiving a special use permit can fall prey to the land use politics and the decision-making process of political leaders."

    So… the developer was a for-profit health-care office developer (no special use), secretly working for a non-profit "health-care" provider (requires special use).

    City governments often use special use provisions to keep adult book stores or even Wal-Marts out of their towns to protect their citizens' ideals or surrounding businesses.
