It has been brought to our attention, by delivery services and others going in and out of the Planned Parenthood parking lot, our vigil may be creating a safety issue to those praying and those entering and leaving the lot.

PLEASE DO NOT WALK ACROSS THE ENTRANCES to the Planned Parenthood parking lot, but remain in front of the building or move to the small area between the driveways and remain there. This is a wise and reasonable request we need to cooperate with.

Contact Judy at or Jan at with questions/concerns
