The turnout of those standing for life was awesome
Thursday is the appalling day of surgical abortions
committed by Planned Parenthood in Waco. Over 15,000 abortions
Last Thursday was the first for which the Pro-Life Waco truck was
parked directly across the drive way from the abortuary. It will not be
last. The day was very eventful.
The new truck billboard features Actress Jennifer O’Neil and the message “I regret my
abortion.” The turnout of those standing for life on Thursday was
awesome—over 30 standing at one time or another between
7 and 10:30. Thank you! Thank you!
We thank God for two babies and moms saved. Possibly there were more.
I want to tell the story about the one we know about for sure. A young
woman driven by a young man entered the abortuary parking lot a little
after 7:30. They did not stop to talk to us, but had to see our pro-life
witness and the message on the truck. She soon decided that she
would not allow Planned Parenthood to destroy her young son. She
then called her father to come and pick her up and take her home. Those
standing for life were not aware of this courageous, life-saving decision.
The about 8:45 a.m. man drove to Planned Parenthood and did stop to
talk to us. With tears in his eyes, he thanked us for “just being there” and
told us that his daughter had turned away from abortion and that his
grandson would now live!!! There was much celebration at the sad
location of 1827 Columbus Avenue. A big point I want to make about the
grace-filled moments last Thursday is that not one person in our group
said a word to the young mom. It was simply our being present at this
location that helped save the life of a little boy and help save a mom and
her family from a life of regret and turmoil. I ask you to prayerfully
consider joining the witness for life for a half-hour or hour on some
Thursday morning in the near future.
The other mom chose life over death for her baby AFTER she had already paid
for the abortion with a credit card. Planned Parenthood was giving her the runaround
and took well over an hour before adjusting her credit card for death denied.
And others? Only God knows. However, we frequently hear about
women being driven to an abortuary and seeing a group of pro-lifers
standing legally and peacefully at the clinic. At times, women will change
their minds at that point and just drive on by. Those who stand and pray
and hold signs at abortion clinics are engaged in a mighty witness of
Thanks for all you continue to do for the Gospel of Life

Now this is the attitude which I attack. It is the view that because we have taken the wrong turn some time ago we must go forward and not backwards. Because we have lost our way we must lose our map also. Because we have missed our ideal, we must forget it.
