So it was me, two friends, and my mom.
There was zero business. Maybe twenty minutes after we got there a car pulled out with a young woman in the passenger seat:( but that was it. The place was dead.
We were also shocked to see, off of their property but nonetheless in front of the building, a sign from 40 days, with that bible verse somebody mentioned beforehand on one side. And on the ground next to it, ever so inconspicuous, was a Miraculous Medal:p
Also there were more honks and waves, even though we had no posters and were just saying the rosary over and over, and when the cars passed they had the pro-life liscence plates Only five times total did we get the finger, jeered at, etc.
Three times did we see one of the nurses… she walked past, way in the grass for her lunch break. When she came back we prayed Hail Holy Queen REALLY loud and she kept even farther back. The third time she came out to a car that pulled up… and we were freaking out because we thought she got in the car to talk somebody in the backseat out. But no, it was just one of her friends:shrug:
We also were approached by a man walking by, who said he knows the 40 days people (none showed until the end.) He said, keep in mind, that my wife would have died if she didn’t have an abortion. I said, really, well abortion can also kill you, about 3% of the time. And they say that up to half of all abortions result in some kind of complication, it’s even more dangerous than having a baby. He sort of shrugged me off, looked at my mom, who I guess he thought was the ringleader, and said, she’s one smart cookie!:shrug:
On our way out we put some of our pamphlets in the mailbox :yyeess: That should annoy them:rolleyes:
Also when we were finishing up, a lady joined us on the other side of the lot, next to the little sign from 40 days, set up her foldy chair, and held her poster, ADOPTION NOT ABORTION. She said that she comes out every day.
ANYWAY I was really scared when we were almost there… but let me tell you it’s way easier than you would think. Every Christian should do this! Imagine what a difference we could make. Besides, a few cars that we thought were about to turn in didn’t… my friends are convinced they saw us and turned around… I’m not so sure. We prayed a lot for the nurse and all of the mothers who have killed their children here. And for the baby who was just killed when we first got there. But he doesn’t need our prayers as much as his mother does…
