DAY 8: Darkness
October 4th, 2011 by admin
There is such incredible darkness at the places where abortions are done.
In thinking about that darkness, I am reminded of something Abby Johnson said. Abby was the director of the Planned Parenthood abortion center in Bryan/College Station, Texas who quit her job two years ago and is now sharing the pro-life message.
Abby recently wrote about some of the things she saw while working in the abortion industry. She mentioned how cold the staff was … and said they even joked about sending a welcome gift when the Coalition for Life, the local pro-life group I worked with, moved next door to Planned Parenthood.
They wanted to send us cookies shaped like babies.
And that was one of the milder examples of what passed for humor behind the walls of an abortion facility.
I’m hearing from 40 Days for Life coordinators, who are telling of the darnkess they encounter at the abortion centers. Here are some of their reports.
As the abortion center closed for the day, one of the employees came out and threw eight small plastic babies on the ground.
“I don’t know how long you people plan to be here,” said the worker, “but this is how many we did today.”
“Our group remained silent,” said Ryan in Tuscaloosa. “We watched the staff member leave, and prayed for the eight babies and the staff.”
The local team decided it would be best to distribute the plastic babies to vigil participants to carry as a reminder to pray for all the unborn, especially the eight from this particular day.
