Demonstrations are continuing

People for Life continues to sponsor demonstrations at the 1611 Peach Street Professional Building at least twice a week. Even though no new developments regarding the pending abortion facility have come to light in recent months (other than updated ads in the new telephone books), the demonstration attendance has not been declining. In fact, there has been a bit of an increase. On Saturdays, we are now seeing about 20 people. This is nearly double the attendance seen during the recent summer months. Last Saturday, we had 23. New faces are not uncommon.

Occasionally, our numbers are considerably greater, thanks to the support of other organizations. Attendance was increased to nearly 50 on two recent occasions, once with help from the Gannon University Students for Life and once with help from the confirmation class of St. George Catholic Church.

We like to stress that our "pool of demonstrators" is much larger than our average attendance numbers; it is not the same 20 or so people at every demonstration.

This Friday, there will be a demonstration from 10:30 AM until Noon. On Saturday, a demonstration will take place, as usual, from 1:30 PM until 2:30 PM.

The demonstrations are currently being conducted on the State Street side of the Professional Building.

(We continue to maintain the billboard at 16th & Peach and our office inside the Professional Building, as well.)
