Two Photos -Two True Stories: A young man dropped his wife/girlfriend at the front door of Planned Parenthood. A pro-life
sidewalk counselor nodded for the man to come over (out of the parking lot) and he did. The pro-lifer used a short video he had
uploaded to his cell phone to show the young man the early development of the young lady's baby. The pro-lifer then spoke to
the young man about adoption and also encouraged him to support this young lady's pregnancy because maybe she is considering
abortion because she feels abandoned. The young man went into Planned Parenthood and he and the girl came out shortly thereafter.
The sidewalk counselor continues to hope and pray that this baby was saved that day and the couple does not return for an abortion.
In our second story, on a recent Saturday a pro-lifer who believes “abortion will not end until people see what abortion really
is” was holding the graphic photo of a child killed in a third-trimester abortion.. As we packed the signs to leave a car pulled up
beside us. The man stated: “I want to see that sign again.” Because he had driven past all of our signs we began to show them to him
one by one. He repeatedly insisted he had to see “that sign.” Upon seeing the graphic sign he said, “I have five children. I never
really knew abortion was like that.”
Public Witness (locations above) is vital to save babies and to educate and we pray to change hearts. A new analysis by National
Right to Life reported, as of Jan. 2010 52 million children have been aborted in the U.S. since the 1973 Roe V. Wade decision.
