Shreveport, Louisiana

It was a challenging day for the team at the 40 Days for Life vigil in Shreveport.

Volunteers were counseling a young woman who had just taken the first of two chemical abortion pills … telling her the process can be reversed.

During that conversation, a car leaving the abortion center stopped. A woman opened the door, leaned out and got violently sick.

“We immediately helped her and motioned for the staff to come out and help her,” said Chris in Shreveport. “We gave water and a loving hand to her, post-abortion literature to the driver – and prayers for them both.”

What did the abortion center staff offer? A cold cloth and a bag.

Shortly afterward, the abortionist walked out. “He was very aloof, remarking about how hot it was,” Chris said.

“Your last patient might not agree,” Chris responded, “but it’s really pretty pleasant.” The abortionist just rolled his eyes and got into his car.

Chris said this was the second conversation he’s had with this doctor. “Pray for him,” he said, “and pray for the guidance from the Holy Spirit for me.”
