Abortion facilities are lonely places where clients usually go because they feel helpless. The moment immediately after an abortion can be the loneliest moment of all.
But God can use the smallest acts to bring hope after abortion … or even to save a life at the last moment when all hope seems lost.
In Flint, Michigan, a 40 Days for Life volunteer noticed a couple entering the abortion center with their two-year-old son.
“I called out to them before they all went in,” she said. But the woman screamed back, “It’s not your body!”
Shortly after, the dad and little boy came out – it’s fairly standard that no children are allowed inside an abortion facility. Living children remind the clients of what abortion is really all about, and that’s bad for business.
The volunteer got his attention, and started telling him how an abortion would change their entire family relationship. “I told him that a woman wants a man who will rescue and take care of his woman and children.”
He said, “What can I do? It’s her body.” She quickly responded, “Go in and get her!”
“I could shoot her a text,” he said.
Well, we thought, that was better than nothing.
A while later, the woman left the building and all three got in their car and left. They did not have the abortion! The volunteer added, “We must continue to pray for them.”
