As Kathryn mentions below, a couple to whom Kim had given a brochure in front came out of PP and sat a while on the bench in back; both Kim and Bentley called to them and they eventually came walking out the driveway and asked, “Where do we go?”  They had an ultrasound inside which showed the baby at 21 weeks, too far along for PP to do an abortion.  But they refused to tell them if the baby was a boy or girl.  (Amy tells us that PP makes clients sign a form stating that they will not be shown the ultrasound… lest they change their minds.)  The man was hoping for a boy since they had three girls already.  So Bentley took them over to the pregnancy clinic for another ultrasound, the woman in tears and the man’s heart softening as well.

We praise the Lord that we were able to introduce this woman to loving caring people who believe in the preciousness of life. Hopefully, she will begin to see her unborn child as a blessing from a holy and loving God. 

It was a busy morning at the pregnancy clinic; was told not all the clients had appointments but not sure if the walk-ins were a result of seeing our signs or not or what.  But always good to know people are going over to the CPC.

I gave away a couple of sets of brochures in front; also, a young woman came out the front with a brown bag and was very receptive to receiving brochures and a rose and an abortion pill reversal card from Sylvia.  Not sure what she might have done afterward. Bentley was back with us today at the driveway, and we had a number of counselors and others around

1973 Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton Decisions Legalized Abortion in the U.S. for theFull Nine Months of Pregnancy Prior to 1967, abortion was prohibited in all 50 states except when the mother’s life was in danger. Between 1967 and 1973, 18 states added further exceptions, mostly to allow abortion in cases of rape and incest, or for certain limited medical reasons, or on demand (New York). In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court rendered two decisions, Roe v. Wade 1 and Doe v. Bolton 2 which, taken together, have allowed legal abortion on demand at any stage of pregnancy in all 50 states. The two original decisions established legal abortion as follows: In the first three months of pregnancy, no one can interfere with a woman’s decision to abort her child. After the first three months, but before the “viability” of the unborn child, an individual state can enact laws to protect the health of the mother but cannot prohibit the abortion of the unborn child. After “viability” of the unborn child, an individual state can, if it chooses to do so, enact laws to protect the unborn child but abortion must be allowed if the life or “health” of the mother is at stake. The Supreme Court defined “health” as “the medical judgment that may be exercised in light of all factors – physical, emotional, psychological, familial, and the woman’s age –relevant to the well-being of the patient. All these factors may relate to health.” 2 Consequently, the broad definition of “health” has made abortion legal up to the moment of birth.
