DAY 15: Laughing at abortion patients

The abortion industry couldn’t care less about women–born or unborn.

At their core, they look down on women and they are disconnected from what women who have abortions go through. Today we have another example of this condescending attitude.

In Manchester, England, three abortion advocates protested the 40 Days for Life vigil, chatting and laughing loudly.

Appreciative of their presence, an abortion worker brought them beverages in disposable gray bowls.

That staff member then burst into laughter as she explained that her employer stocks the disposable bowls so that clients have somewhere to vomit when they get sick following their abortions.

“I didn’t see a funny side to this,” said Maria in Manchester. “This took place directly outside the waiting room window, where the mums inside had full view…and would certainly have heard the laughter.”

Abortion supporters try to dismiss pro-life concerns about the casual destruction of human life by claiming abortion is a difficult decision–and one never made without thoughtful deliberation.

The actions of abortion supporters, however, suggest they don’t believe their own rhetoric.

Western United States

Fortunately, the contrast between the pro-abortion and pro-life worldviews IS opening eyes. At one facility, an abortion worker recently thanked vigil participants for their presence.

“Your group is the most effective,” she said.

Pray that this worker will soon take the next step by leaving her job and finding healing!

Denver, Colorado

A woman in Denver had an appointment with the pro-life pregnancy center across the street from one of the largest Planned Parenthood abortion centers in the United States.

Upon arriving, she was surprised by how nice the pregnancy center looked. She assumed she must be at the wrong place and drove to Planned Parenthood. Fortunately, 40 Days for Life volunteers in front of the abortion facility were available to redirect her…right back to the pregnancy center.

Scripture and Prayer

Now Cain talked with Abel his brother; and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother and killed him. Then the Lord said to Cain, “Where is Abel your brother?” He said, “I do not know. Am I my brother’s keeper?” —Genesis 4:8-9

Father, help us to embrace the fact that we are our “brother’s keeper.” When, due to selfish motives, we try to cast off this responsibility please call to us to account. We would be pleasing to you and to our “brother.”
