3,500 unborn babies are killed every year in Shelby County... How will the Church respond?

Memphis Coalition for Life was organized as a new independent nonprofit with a mission of seeing God end abortion in Memphis, TN, peacefully and prayerfully.

Memphis, TN is currently an abortion hub for much of the Midsouth. Women are driving into Memphis from Arkansas and Mississippi every single week to have abortions in any of the 3 active abortion clinics. Unborn children are being brutally killed up to 20 weeks gestation right in our own backyard. With the abortion industry operating full-time to harm the women in our community, how could the Church only respond part-time?

Currently, Memphis has 3 active abortion clinics. In 2019, a combination birthing center/abortion clinic is set to open right in the backyard of Memphis Christians. Memphis Coalition for Life was organized as a new independent nonprofit with a mission of seeing God end abortion in Memphis, TN, peacefully and prayerfully.

The Coalition for Life relies entirely on private donations and faith in a God who can and does do miracles. Knowing that it would do no good to “reinvent the wheel,” The Coalition sought advice and wisdom from the experience of organizations such as Sidewalk Advocates for Life, Southwest Coalition for Life, and 40 Days for Life, Memphis Coalition for Life. As a result, Memphis Coalition for Life has launched a coordinated effort with local churches, Christian organizations, and Pregnancy Centers to unite in prayer, fasting, and sidewalk advocacy to end abortion in Memphis and to see the remaining abortion clinics close their doors permanently.
