Donna in Dover, Delaware had a similar conversation with a young man who assumed the STD tests at Planned Parenthood were free.

Local campaign leader Bob Brechtel, who spent ten years in the state
legislature, said 40 Days for Life has done more to accelerate the end
abortion of in Wyoming than all the laws passed during his decade in
With long miles between locations in the mountain states, this was our only event of the day. Next up -- an 8-hour drive to Salt Lake City for the Utah state rally.
How's this for a mid-point rally? A flash mob -- singing and carrying
signs through a local farmers' market! Watch the video ... [more]
A couple drove into the abortion center lot and parked. The woman got out ... then got back in. They moved to another parking place ... [more]
among all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this,
in His hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.
