I am a New Yorker and involved in the pro life movement, and I can attest to the truth of these grisly facts. I pray and counsel at an abortion clinic once a week here in Brooklyn. It's actually 2 abortions clinics in one building, which ironically is right around the corner from the offices of the Brooklyn diocese. There is also another abortion clinic only a couple blocks away, and another one about 5 or 6 blocks away. The majority of women I see going in there are either African American or Latina. We have a St. Joseph sister who is also there once a week, Sr. Dororthy, whe has trained many hundreds of people to counsel. The other days of the week she is at a clinic in Queens, where they perform up to 100 abortions each day, again mostly for minority women.
Msgr. Philip Reilly, who started the Helpers of God's Precious Infants here in Brooklyn many years ago, prays every day at a large abortion clinic here in Brooklyn, despite the fact that he has had a major battle with face cancer. We have many others who are out day after day in all kinds of weather trying to stop the killing.
Fr. Groeschel's priests are out many days a week in front of a major abortion clinic in the Bronx.
We have several Cenacles of Life throughout the metro area, including one here in Brooklyn that I pray at every week.
We are working hard to stop it, but it's not easy. We can use everyone's prayers. We are in a major spiritual war. Msgr. Reilly said that on 9/11 he was praying in front of an abortion clinic when the planes hit. Everything else in NYC stopped that day, but the abortions continued. He was there the entire day, with paper debris from the buildings raining down on him.
