Traffic was a little slow this morning at the 8th St. driveway until 10 AM when a single woman entered from across the parking lot. She didn’t respond to my offers for help. Then a young couple drove through. The girl had her head down and the car window was slightly open . I’m sure she could hear me. They stayed in the parked car for about 10 minutes before an escort accompanied them into the clinic. They were non-responsive to my message of help. The young man left and returned twice. He didn’t come out of the clinic by the time I left at 11:45AM.
Several more cars came through. One looked like a mom and daughter. Amy tried to reach them. No response. Kim joined us around 10:30 and she was able to give an Hispanic brochure to a young woman driving in by herself. She also gave a brochure to two young women approaching the driveway from the west on foot. One was very receptive; the other unleashed a rash of filth on me before walking up the driveway. She continued to unleash the filth talk on the escort probably thinking she was with us.
***Amy told us of a young woman exiting from the front in tears. She told Amy that she decided against the abortion at the last minute(!). Amy told her she had done the bravest thing, gave her our brochures, and told her about the pregnancy clinic. This can be considered a save.
