The following coms from a May 16 email from the Helpers of God’s Precious Infants San Diego:
Dear Pro-life Friends,
Although we had many counselors this morning, it was mostly the prayers that resulted 3 turnarounds.
Early in the morning a car drove in and parked in the middle of the lot. One of the counselors approached the car after the woman started to open her car door. She was offered some information, but she indicated she was not interested in the literature. Instead of getting out, she closed the door and the couple sat in the car and talked while the counselors backed away to give them privacy. While this was going on, a half dozen prayer warriors were praying under a large image of Our Lady of Guadalupe on the sidewalk about 50 yards away. About 15 minutes later, they started up the car and drove away.
Later in the morning, a young couple drove up to the front of the building and walked in before any of the counselors could talk to them. About an hour later they came out and a counselor smiled and said, “I don’t know why you are here, but I have some valuable information you need to have.” The woman smiled back and said she didn’t have an abortion, and readily accepted the abortion pill reversal card and a Culture of Life Family Services brochure. The woman thanked the counselor and smiled and waved when she left.
Late in the morning, another couple parked right in front of the abortion clinic and sat in the car for about 10 minutes. Without getting out of the car or talking to any of the counselors, they simply drove away.
No doubt the presence of many people praying on the sidewalk had some effect on these women who left without having an abortion. While a few people continue trying to disrupt our counseling activities, they cannot stop the power of prayer. Please continue to come out and pray for the protection of the unborn, and please pray for these women who left, that they have the courage and strength to not come back.
