Like Mary and Elizabeth …
As I was praying at Philadelphia Women’s Center (Pennsylvania’s worst abortion clinic) last Friday, two young girls came out of the abortion center and when they caught my eye, one asked if I was protesting. I said, “I’m praying and I’m here to help.” She said, “I don’t want an abortion but I already have a two-year-old, and I don’t want to have a baby suffer.” I said, “Everybody suffers, but everybody has a lot of wonderful moments in life, too. I can’t solve all your problems, but I am here to help and we have a team of people who are ready to support you and your baby.”
When I asked how far along she was, she said, “Look, I’m 17 weeks.” She lifted her jacket and showed me her belly. There was no doubt. I asked what she was doing here. She said she and her sister were getting information about the ‘procedure’ and scheduling an abortion for Tuesday (tomorrow). She said she wouldn’t go through with it. Her sister, who is 10 weeks pregnant, said she wouldn’t do it either. Praise God!
PLEASE PRAY that they stick with their intention to choose life.
Marlene Downing, Dir. of Hope Pregnancy Center, and Member of Pro-Life Union Board of Directors, is helping me in counseling them, searching for housing, and providing for material needs.
THIS IS A TIME of GRACE … even in the midst of the pandemic, shut-down, and the increased atmosphere of fear. God is on the move.
Let’s all join in praying for great grace for moms discovering that they are pregnant right now … and pray for all those who are serving them.
Be at peace and know that the Lord is good.
