Day 2, Late Term Labor&Delivery Abortions


Today, it was back to OWC to make one last effort to spare the imperiled infants. Again, my beloved Dad and I counseled together.

The first couple to arrive was the couple who had the supposedly dying child. The next was the couple who has the precious little girl. After they got there, the girl who left sobbing yesterday arrived, but this time with her wicked mother. I went to the back and called out. The husband of the woman with the dying baby was the first to react. I wasn't even aiming what I was saying directly at him, but rather at the mother of the aborting girl, but he got out of his car and began making faces at me (he has to be at least 50...and he was making childish faces), and telling me how disgusting I am. Then he called me a foul name. His antics encouraged the murderous grandma to open her window and in-put her two cents (she had already flicked us off as she drove into the drive way). She went on about how sad I was, and continued to hurl a couple of vulgar insults at Dad and I. "Sharon" (clinic worker) had come out earlier to give something to the Daddy with the cute little girl, and she was laughing (I'm pretty sure she and the guy were saying things about me--what else would there be to laugh at at an abortion mill, besides a fool for Christ preaching the gospel?)...I told her she would not laugh when she stood before God on judgment day...she said something as she went in the door, and slammed it. I'm assuming it included foul language, because it usually does. But, who really knows?

Eventually, the husband got back in the car and ignored me, and the mother/daughter killing squad got out...I ignored the mother and pled with the daughter on behalf of her unborn baby; but to no avail. The mother left her daughter there, and blew her a kiss on the way out the door..."Call me later!" I wonder how many babies she has killed. It was clearly her "choice" to kill the baby. I feel sorry for her daughter...albeit, she is still guilty for consenting to the murder of her own little one.

Just as we were about to leave, one last couple came in. I called out, and the boyfriend asked me to please by quiet. Apparently he doesn't know me very well ;) When he came out without his girl, I said "Sir, you are a coward." He said, "Thanks. You're a good person for doing this." I thought he was being sarcastic; Dad did not. As he headed to the car, I made one last plea on behalf of his baby, and then warned him of the judgment to come. Then, Dad and I got in the car and left.

Just as with Baby Chaz, Jehovah saw each and every one of these precious infants today. He saw them months ago; in fact, he knew them before the foundation of the earth. He willed their conception and knitted them together in the wombs of their Mommies...but their Mommies murdered them. Who knows the pain they felt; who knows how many were born alive, and left to drown in a cold, dirty toilet...no one but God and the murderers who want no justice. Only God will see their little bodies as they're "buried" with Orlando's other medical waste. It is a sad day in a country, when human beings made in the image of God are murdered through a government sanctioned "medical procedure" and thrown away as though they're garbage; they're obviously not.

May God have mercy on this nation by granting her repentance...may He raise up faithful preachers of His word, who will preach repentance in the name of Christ, for the remission of sins--in season, and out of season. Indeed, the harvest is plenty, but the laborers are few.

I'm anonymous, but only because I don't have a blog, etc. My e-mail is gsims1221@cox.net, just so you know I'm not some idiot.

That said - I admire your passion. However, have you ever thought that your approach is a bit "in your face" and thus some of the message is lost? I'm not pro-abortion by any means, FYI. This is a rhetorical question.

good luck in your endeavors.

As I read your post, my heart just cried out for so many of the people shared in your story.

From my own personal background, I have worked in a Crisis Pregnancy Support Center. Through this, I have heard so many of the stories from mom's and their boyfriends, husbands, their parent's, and those that are friends supporting the pregnancy and those that aren't

I have been right beside many mothers who were "on the line" of making the decision to abort or not. I have fought hard for these baby's lives. Some turned out good and some not so good.

Through all this, my passion/goal for saving lives was always present, but always showing them love, kindness, mercy, compassion. Sharing THE truth in a controlled manner.

How are you "setting" your self apart from "the world" when you are calling a man "a coward"?

Are you showing him who Jesus is?

Are you calling him out of the crowd and asking him to just talk. Asking him to tell you his story. Telling him there are people that will be there to help if needed, if things go wrong, if he regrets this decision, etc. So many other options could have been done.

I cringed when the words Gospel and "coward" were used in the same context.

Please pray for God's guidance for a balanced approach to sharing with the lost.

We need to meet them where they are at in their lives!

Thank you both for your comments. I think the example of the preaching of our LORD Jesus in the scriptures was very "in your face." His scathing rebukes to the scribes and pharises, especially. He also talked about hell a lot more than he talked about heaven...He really told things how they were. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, as the scriptures say.

As far as Lisa's questions: First off, I appreciate the efforts you've made to save the lives of those who are perishing. As to setting myself apart from the world, being at an abortion mill preaching the Word of God seems to me to be "set apart-ness"

We always begin with a good samaritan message, offering them our help through pregnancy, financial help, friendship, adoption assistance..anything we can do to help them, we offer.

At the same time, we always keep the law of God in the center, as the scriptures say that the law is the schoolmaster that leads us to Christ. Also, the law of God is perfect in converting the soul. When the mommies and daddies reject our help, we move to more of a hard message of God's righteous judgment on sin. When I used the word "coward" it was not a false accusation, nor was it the first thing I had said to the man. Each and every couple/woman/man going in on the second day and seen Dad and I already, and already heard our offers of help, etc. Even as he entered the building, it was a plea for him not to go in. But as he left, leaving his girl and his baby inside an abortuary, it was not the time to say something gentle and sweet; it was the time to call sin what it is. I hope that the words I said will ring in his mind, and that God might use the preaching of His word (the scriptures say the cowardly have their place in the lake of fire) to move the man and his girlfriend to repentance.

If you want to see my further comments on why I sidewalk counsel the way I do, see my post "Why I Sidewalk Counsel."

If you have any other questions/comments, I'd be happy to address them. :)

All I'm asking is for you to consider that not every encounter you have with these people is done perfectly. That there may be times where you possibly could ever say, "Lord, maybe this one could have been handle a little better...

Our sins are just the same as their sin's in God's eyes. No one is worthy of His forgiveness, but are seen perfect because of what Jesus did, when we put our trust in Him. That is something that we can agree on, I hope :)

I will be the first to admit that I do not, by any means, handle every situation in the way I should! I am so far from perfect and am constantly in need of the grace of my glorious, risen Savior. As Paul said, I often feel like the chief of sinners. When I go to do good, sin follows me! How I long for the day when we will be delivered from our sin nature and actually made righteous (not just seen as righteous), in glory!

While every sin is not "equally bad" in the eyes of God (some sins are worse than others), we are all most definitely worthy of His eternal wrath, and it is only by His grace, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ that we are saved.
