The Face of "Pro-Choice"

Yesterday on the sidewalks of the southeast's busiest abortion center, we pro-life counselors had to contend with some nasty forces of dissent. The woman in the forefront holding the yellow sign in the face of Cities4Life pro-life counselor (Sherry) was attempting to block Sherry from showing a picture of a 12-week-old baby in utero to a mama. This "pro-choice" escort was shouting at the top of her lungs, "Your body, your choice," (even to the men...?), and following us whenever we called out to the abortion-minded women. Sometimes she would switch her mantra, and then would tell us loudly about how wonderful sex is and describe in detail what she enjoys sexually, while informing us she didn't believe in God. She was created "by science" she told us.

Somehow, despite this harassment, God's message was proclaimed, many people took our literature and two women chose life. That wonderful counselor in the photo, Sherry, stayed late, and took a grieving couple to lunch after the woman aborted and was sick, in pain, and sad. The young man was horribly distraught, having begged the woman not to abort his child.  None of the "pro-choice" folks were offering comfort or lunch to the couple.

Sherry gave them our contact info and promised to stay in touch to help however she could. Then she sobbed her eyes out over the horror of what abortion does to humanity. Anyone who thinks abortion only destroys the child has not spent much time on the front-lines of the industry.

Proverbs 6:12-16 

A worthless person, a wicked man, goes about with crooked speech, winks with his eyes, signals with his feet, points with his finger, with perverted heart devises evil, continually sowing discord; therefore calamity will come upon him suddenly; in a moment he will be broken beyond healing. There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him

Psalm 5:4

For you are not a God who delights in wickedness; evil may not dwell with you.

Woe to those who devise wickedness and work evil on their beds! When the morning dawns, they perform it, because it is in the power of their hand.

Psalm 37:1-40

Of David. Fret not yourself because of evildoers; be not envious of wrongdoers! For they will soon fade like the grass and wither like the green herb. Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness. Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act. ...

    1. they are allowed on the property but they wanted to stand right beside us and follow us making noise so we could not be heard. This is harassment and we are pursuing it.
