Intoxicated Post-Abortion Woman Loses it at 40 Days Vigil

My wife and I were part of a small group from our church in front of the local abortion facility the other night as we participated in the 40 Days for Life national vigil. It was around 10:30 PM, and we were just finishing a hymn we were singing when a car pulled up and two young women jumped out.

The smell of alcohol preceding them gave away their condition, and made their initial claim of support for our cause seem doubtful at best. The more intoxicated of the two, Laurie, did most of the talking and asked, "So why do you think it's not OK to kill babies? And what about if someone has been raped?" (I don't understand why pro-abortion people think that "hard cases," such as rape, justify murder--or that these questions will stump pro-life advocates.)

But Laurie wasn't interested in answers. She continued, her voice rising as she told us that ten years earlier, at sixteen, she was raped and had an abortion at this facility. When she had her abortion, she drove past protesters with signs showing the reality of abortion. She said the abortion was a horrible experience, and that we had no right to stand out there and tell people not to do it. We had no right to show pictures of dead babies.

By this time she was screaming profanity in my face and saying it just made her want to punch someone in the face. I was trying to determine if she was going to get violent when a muscular young man--probably her boyfriend--jumped out of the back seat, physically restrained her and carried her back toward the car.

Both Laurie and her less tipsy companion, who was driving, had a few more choice words about how we didn't have the love of Jesus, and how we had no right to judge people or to tell them not to kill their babies. But apparently they had a right to scream profanity at us. Then they drove away.

In their intoxicated state they weren't making much sense, but they also didn't bother with the typical pro-abortion euphemisms. Just how do you answer the question, "What's wrong with killing babies?" Indeed, it needs no answer, as everyone knows what is wrong with it. Laurie obviously did. And even her drunkenness provided no escape from her guilty conscience. May God lead her to repentance.

About fifteen minutes later a different car approached and deliberately ran over several of the white crosses lining the road. I don't know if the driver of the second car was Laurie. (Perhaps the license plate number will reveal that.)

This morning a woman brought her teenage daughter to the crisis pregnancy center, looking for the abortion clinic where they had an appointment. When the mother realized she was not at the abortion clinic, they left immediately (but did accept some pro-life literature).

Where will that girl be in ten years? Screaming profanity through a guilt-ridden alcoholic haze at the very people who want to offer her help?

May God deliver us.

I think it is wrong to do that. Half of you ' so called christians ' dont know how to ACT LIKE CHRISTIANS..
Did God tell you to stand outside and hold those 'GRAPHIC' signs to state your beliefs...? Or did you really think IT WAS THE RIGHT THING TO DO ...

Ive never had an abortion ...but someone i know has and they had the same thing happen to them. She told me how they were shouting at everyone walking in and i just couldnt believe how heartless some people could be. Not everyone wants the baby in the first place...and not EVERYONE has the same beliefs as you. So back off!!!! They know what they are doing and if they were against it ...they wouldnt do it...its common sense so the next time you want to point out your beliefs..EVERYONE HAS THEIR STRUGGLE!!!
WWJD.... he wouldnt stand in front of a rape victim outside of a abrotion clinic shouting ' stop killing babies!!!'... have a frickin heart!!!

Well, God did tell us to deliver those who are being drawn unto death. He didn't specify an age limit.

To clarify, I don't hold graphic signs, but some others exercise their right to do so. Are you saying I only have the right to free speech if everyone agrees with me?

You say women getting abortions know what they are doing. Actually, most women who have abortions don't know that their baby's heart is already beating by 3 weeks after conception. They don't know that in most cases the baby is already moving very recognizable arms and legs. They don't know many of the risks to their own health.

You say if they were against it, they wouldn't do it. You should have talked to the young lady I spoke with last Saturday whose parents told her she had to abort. She was going to, even though she didn't want to. But then she saw the ultrasound of her baby and changed her mind.

Pro-life people are not coercing women. We are empowering them with the facts that no one else is telling them.

To the person who first commented on this entry. You ask "What would Jesus do?" That is a very good question. Are you aware that he took a whip and whipped people out of the local temple? Do you know that he called people some pretty ugly names and told them they were going to hell? Or that he told others they would never be forgiven for their sins, not in this world or the next? Do you know the Bible talks about him slaughtering his enemies by the thousands at the end of the world? Frankly, I think standing outside a clinic, holding a sign and silently praying is pretty mild compared to some of the things Jesus did and will yet do.
