Not a whole lot of people entered the front entrance where a number of us stood to counsel and to pray – two couples, two single women, and one woman dropped off. Most noteworthy was a situation with a very young, scared looking woman who when approaching the building was quickly surrounded by two escorts. Theresa and I attempted to talk to her and did our best, but the woman escort, a regular, grabbed her by the arm and steered her past us into the door of PP. I would have talked to Steve (and maybe still will), but the other escort present (our doctor “friend” – a reasonable fellow), quickly rebuked her for touching the woman. However, it was heartbreaking to witness it all and see that this young woman was swept into the building obviously confused and hurting. We could only life her up in prayer. 

Later on the in the morning, a young woman, who had a baby in the car, was met by a man who took the baby, left her there and then drove away. Theresa and I to spoke to the woman and Theresa spoke to the man. She took literature from Theresa. She was not in there long, when she came out of the building. She said she was there for a friend, but ran quickly back into the building. The man returned and somehow got into the building unnoticed. He might have dropped the baby with someone. Anyway, it was altogether heartbreaking because they never came out of the building while some of our people were there until 1:00.

Theresa also reported where a lovely black woman, who was noticeably pregnant – even having the telltale pregnant glow, went into PP around noon. Theresa pleaded with her to reconsider her decision to abort her child, but to no avail. Her mind was made up she said!!!

Earlier in the morning, when Gloria was still with us, two Spanish speaking women entered the back driveway. Gloria was quick to go to the open fence and cried out to the young woman in Spanish who was being dropped off at the back door. As the driver of the car was leaving the premises, Gloria approached the car and was able to speak to the driver. The woman told Gloria that she was only the driver, and was not really involved. Besides offering the free help available and taking away every argument that would justify her friend having an abortion, Gloria shared that in driver her friend to an abortion clinic knowing she was going to abort her child, she was actually an accomplice. Kathryn had given the woman information previously, and the woman said that she would call her friend to share what information she was given through Gloria and the pamphlet. Whether she ever did that, only the Lord knows. But, truth was given and what she did with it, is between her and the Lord.  [see Kathryn’s report above for further details]

I might add that besides speaking to a number of workers entering the building encouraging them to go to and see about getting another job where innocent babies are not being killed, Margaret, who was posted on the sidewalk in front, talked to a couple who entered the building from slipping through the back.

All posts were covered this day. Everyone that we know of was presented with the truth that would set them free. We release them all to the Lord.

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.
