Sidewalk Advocates for Life

Bethany Mistretta

About the Mission

From the website: Sidewalk Advocates for Life takes a peaceful, prayerful, law-abiding approach to reaching out to those servicing the abortion center. We seek to be the hands & feet of Christ and to ‘stand in the gap’ for those who, ironically, may feel they have no choice. While we provide crisis intervention on the sidewalk to women in unplanned pregnancies headed into the abortion center, we recognize that our outreach can only go so far: we must offer her real, ongoing help or crisis management. Our interaction never ends without offering her life-affirming alternatives such as help from the local pregnancy resource center(s) and other organizations in her local community.

Bethany Mistretta

Director of Programs at Sidewalk Advocates for Life

Bethany Mistretta serves as Director of Programs for Sidewalk Advocates for Life (SAFL) where she manages all aspects of the SAFL program including approving new applications and advising leaders as well as assisting the Executive Director with national projects.

In the Fall of 2014, while reading Abby Johnson’s book, Unplanned, Bethany felt that God was calling her to get back involved with the pro-life movement. She started sidewalk counseling but quickly realized that she needed more training and support; her search lead her to Sidewalk Advocates for Life and ultimately, to her current position.

Bethany is passionate about spreading the mission of SAFL and encouraging others to hear God’s call to reach out to women, men, and abortion workers on the sidewalk. She enjoys meeting the wonderful leaders of SAFL across the country and seeks to be a blessing to others in their ministry. Bethany invites others to “be the love” for all those present at the abortion facility — like the “best friend next door” that you would talk to if you were in crisis.

If you are interested in starting a Sidewalk Advocates for Life program in your town or city, please contact Bethany at


Please RSVP by November 1st. If you cannot make the luncheon, but RSVP’d you would be there, please find someone to replace you and let us know.

As we move forward in our efforts to end the demand for abortion we need to regroup and put all of our resources together. So much was accomplished when we were in Pinellas County several years ago and we need to get that momentum back!
