The following comes from a Jan. 25 email.
Today had beautiful weather downtown, but unfortunately it was extremely busy for PP. We had four Prayer Warriors who offered prayers for the workers and customers.
A woman in her 60s walking her dog came up to me and told me that I should be ashamed of myself because this “was a woman’s right, because it was her body,” and I responded “it’s a woman’s right to kill her child?” She walked off.
A black woman came up to PP with three cute boys in tow, the oldest of which I would say was maybe seven or eight years old. I offered her information, and she said “That’s crazy! I don’t believe in abortion! He could be the President!” and I said “That’s true! You never know!” If ever there was a common sense reason not to abort your child, she said it. Only God knows the future. She was only there for a short time and then left. Her car wouldn’t start, and one of the guards helped her with jumper cables to get her car started. I told him I was proud of him for doing a good deed, and we both laughed.
Another woman came up, and I offered her information saying “Please give this to anyone you know who may be pregnant, that she may give her child a chance at life,” and she stopped and looked at the bookmark with the picture of the six-week ectopic pregnancy. She said, “OK, I will, but this picture is too much.” I replied, “But that is the reality.” She took the information and walked in. Not long after, she came out, and told me “I didn’t do it.” I said, “So you changed your mind?” and she said, “Yes.” Someone came by in a little bit and picked her up and she left.
