WHAT SHOULD BE OUR ATTITUDE AT THE ABORTION MILL
Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are being tortured as if you yourselves were being tortured.
GOD WILL JUDGE OUR WORK AT THE ABORTION MILL
**If any man builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, his work will be shown for what it is. **God will judge our work at the abortion mill as gold, silver, jewels, wood, hay or straw. We all build upon the foundations of Jesus with our own efforts. Those efforts range from the obvious dazzling brilliance of gold which is the perfection of our efforts, to the middle worth all the way down to straw which temporary and of small value. I cannot stress this strongly enough. We are all doing God’s work, nonetheless our task to perfect ourselves, to raise ourselves from silver to gold, or from straw to hay, eventually to gold. Each person has different gifts from the Holy Spirit and should be encouraged to express those gifts in different ways. (Personally, I believe that abortion is such a horrible crime against God that the Holy Spirit allows anyone sincere, anywhere, anytime, with the slightest heartfelt prayer, even straw such as me, to save babies and souls.)
WHY ARE WE AT THE ABORTION MILL
**snatch others from the fire and save them. **This is why we are at the abortion mill, this is why we go there, this is why it is important for us to be there, this is what we are doing there, this is our goal, this is our command from God, this is our authorization from God, this is the situation that we are in, this is what we are dealing with, this is what we must overcome. A million words could be written about this, but I am not capable of even a small expression of that. We aim to snatch back souls who are 20 feet from hell and save babies who are 20 feet from being murdered. I leave it to each person to understand that this drama is unimaginable in its gravity and its consequences. The stakes cannot be higher.
WHY DOES A WOMAN HAVE AN ABORTION
A woman has an abortion because she has not put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able resist on the evil day. Without question, this is her “evil day” and because she has not previously put on the armor of God, she does not have the power to resist temptation. She has already killed her baby in her heart; she has already made an appointment to kill her baby physically, and now she and her baby arrive the place of murder.
HOW SHOULD WE PRAY WHEN WE ARRIVE AT THE ABORTION MILL
First, we should say a prayer of exorcism to protect us and the women from the snares of the devil. This can be as simple as repeating the words of St Paul “**we pray that the God of peace will crush Satan beneath our feet”. **Second, we should say an Act of Contrition for our own sins, third, we should pray that God **gives us a well trained tongue **to save them from the fire. Then we pray whenever there is an opportunity. I personally like to say The Divine Praises, The Litany of the Holy Name, The Litany of Loreto. I think The “Magnificat” of The Blessed Mother is extraordinarily beautiful, inspiring and powerful.
WHAT SHOULD YOU SAY TO THE WOMAN ENTERING THE ABORTION MILL
The truth shall set you free. We are obligated by God to proclaim the truth to an abortive woman and only the truth will save her. The first truth is Thou shall not kill - This is the primary and absolute command of Almighty God prohibiting abortion and it is written on the heart of every person. The second truth is that Jesus Christ suffered and died on the cross for her baby - Jesus has given the baby an infinite value, love and sacredness that cannot be trampled. Third, we all stand before God in judgment for our deeds - No one will escape the final judgment of God of heaven or hell. Fourth, Whatever you do to the least of these you do unto me – the horror of abortion is that it is an attack upon Jesus himself. Fifth, as a man sows, the same shall he reap – a woman cannot live a happy life or solve her problems by killing her baby. God will severely punish the unjust, in this life and in the next. It is in her own selfish interest to let her baby live. Sixth, God always provides a way of escape – there are options, let me show them to you and help you and your baby live.
There are, in addition to these, many other things that can be said. There are some sidewalk counselors who have the gift to teach the abortive women how to love their children right on the spot. Sometimes counselors have the gift to see into her heart and say exactly the right thing to snatch her from the fire. But normally we cannot let the fundamental truth of God go unsaid. It is a grace of God to be told the truth. Brochures and signs should say the same things.
