She Shouted: "It’s my life!" Pray that woman does not return for an abortion
Dear Pro-life friends,
Because certain people are trying to block the efforts of sidewalk counselors to save mothers and babies from the horrors of abortion, we are keeping the dates, times, and locations of where we are counseling confidential. The notes below may come from one or more locations during the week. Some specifics have been omitted to protect the identity of people we counsel.
Report from the last week of September, 2017
One of the counselors spoke to a woman and her husband who had arrived at the abortion center carrying 1-year old twins, a boy and a girl. The woman was very interested in the literature and wanted to know about the risks and side effects of having an abortion. However, when asked if she was pregnant, she said she wasn’t, and was only there for a check-up and birth control. Her eyes seemed to convey she was telling the truth.
While the counselor was taking with her, another couple arrived, and this woman had a very different demeanor. She was very angry, shouting at her boyfriend and shoving him away. He was not saying much while the woman screamed at him. They both went into the clinic, but came back outside a few minutes later. As they walked to their car, the woman shouted to her boyfriend, “It’s my life!”. He walked away while the woman drove away by herself in the opposite direction. The counselor was unable to determine if the boyfriend was pushing for the abortion, and she did not want it, or if she wanted it, but he would not support her decision. In any event, she left without having the abortion. Please pray that she does not return.
For those participating in 40 Days for Life San Diego (Family Planning Associates at 7340 Miramar Road), surgical abortions are done on Tuesday mornings, and chemical abortions are done on Monday and Thursday mornings. Please try to pray on the sidewalk on one of these mornings.
On another note, thank you to everyone who participated in the Life Chain on Sunday. Below is a picture of some of the people who attended, including a man who happened to be passing by and joined in by holding one of our signs over his head for the entire life chain.
