Don't Panic: The Sidewalk Counselor's Guidebook
Judith Fetrow
From the foreword:

This is a book for those people who feel they are called to go to the abortion centers to counsel women, but have not gone because they didn't know what to say. We have put together this book, and training for sidewalk counselors, to help people who are in that dilemma. It is easy to let our insecurity restrain us from action. Excuses are numerous when the costs are high. The truth is that thousands of babies die every day, and they can't hear our excuses.

An Encounter with Angels — Tips on Sidewalk Counseling
Patsy Gonzalez
Patsy's biography from the manual:

Shortly after experiencing a crisis pregnancy in her family, Patsy moved to the US with her five children in 1989 from the Philippines (a country where the unborn child from the moment of conception is protected by its Constitution). The joy of having her grandson after her daughter‘s crisis encouraged her to intervene on behalf of unborn babies outside abortion clinics by picketing at mills in San Jose with her children. She later decided to become involved with sidewalk counseling outside a late-term abortion clinic in Redwood City. Patsy and her family also welcomed a few mothers in crisis to live in their home.
