DAY 7: “I wouldn’t care if it was 5 years old, I’m going to kill it”

God has used 40 Days for Life to help close 90 abortion facilities.

Other facilities go away temporarily and either relocate or reopen later.

Sometimes, Planned Parenthood will leave town altogether, only to resurface years later — like they did in Waco, Texas.

After seven 40 Days for Life vigils, the Planned Parenthood center closed its doors and left town in 2013. But just recently, Planned Parenthood came back to Waco, opening a large abortion facility there.

This Planned Parenthood business schedules abortions three days in a row, every other week, with an abortionist who flies in from the East Coast.

At the Waco kickoff, one of the Planned Parenthood clients said something startling to vigil participants that made the local paper.

Waco, Texas

Waco’s kickoff event received strong coverage from the local media, featuring great comments about the 40 Days for Life mission from those attending the rally.

But it was a brief conversation recounted by a Waco Tribune-Herald reporter that quickly rippled through the crowd.

“Do you know this is abortion day?” a volunteer asked a woman who was entering the facility.

“Yes, I’m here to get one,” the woman replied defiantly.

“I urge you to reconsider,” the volunteer said. “A baby’s heartbeat can be heard three weeks after conception.”

“I wouldn’t care if it was 5 years old. I’m going to kill it,” she said.

Those who heard that were taken aback. The volunteer told the reporter that such an attitude is rare, that most Planned Parenthood clients have mixed emotions and simply don’t know where to turn.

Planned Parenthood wouldn’t talk to the reporter. As is their custom, they sent their usual written statement about intimidation and harassment of women – something that was utterly absent on the sidewalk in Waco.
