There is no conversation in our culture today that is more important than a sidewalk counselor lovingly reaching out to a women walking in to have her baby aborted. Sidewalk counselors are the heroes of the pro-life movement and are the last chance the baby has for survival. Sidewalk counselors literally speak for those who have no voice.
What is Sidewalk Counseling?
Sidewalk counseling is exactly what it implies…trained volunteers are present on the sidewalk in front of the abortion clinic educating women about their choices. Sidewalk counselors help potential Planned Parenthood customers find better healthcare alternatives and serve to protect the pre-born child and the woman from abortion.
Does this strategy work?
Numerous former abortionists call sidewalk counseling the most effective method for saving lives and ending abortion. Locally, counselors have witnessed dozens of women leaving the abortion clinic and choosing life due to the efforts of the sidewalk counselors and the presence of the prayer volunteers.
How do I know if this is for me?
The first feeling you will most likely have when considering becoming a Sidewalk Counselor is fear. That is normal, because becoming a sidewalk counselor means God is calling you beyond yourself to help the least of His brethren. Like most new things, you learn to do it and it becomes second nature, but with sidewalk counseling the importance and impact are lifesaving!
How do I start?
All sidewalk counselors are trained by the Coalition for Life staff and other experienced counselors who have counseled for years and approached hundreds of women entering Planned Parenthood. They will guide you every step of the way.

What do current sidewalk counselors have to say?
“With all the other things I could do with my time, I know this isn’t the easiest but it is certainly the most important. Nothing is more humbling or fulfilling than when Christ uses you to lovingly reach out to a woman who responds by changing her mind at the last moment. If there were no sidewalk counselors, those babies would be aborted and forgotten." - Marilisa
"Sidewalk counseling has opened my mind and heart to learn, watch, and listen more carefully to those who are in most need of God’s infinite love, peace, mercy." –Ryan
"For too long I felt that I was helpless against abortion, but now that I am sidewalk counselor, I feel like I am taking an active stance against this evil, and that together we are making a profound difference." – Susie
"I used to be afraid of speaking out -- what do I say to them [abortion clinic customers], how do I respond to various things they could say, etc. But over time I have determined that fear will not prevent me from saving a baby's life and a woman's pain. The Holy Spirit can, and will, speak needed words through an active participant in God's will." –Christopher
“What else can you do in our world or in our town where somebody can have a life because you gave just a little bit of your time?” - Laura
