Sisters

Why do I pray outside of an abortion clinic?
What is the point?
Watching this video brought me to tears. I pray for these women, for all woman who are remorseful and those who aren't. I know every baby that lost its life to this 'procedure' is an Angel, being held in the arms of Our Mother, Mary. So my prayers are for the women. I have heard many times that abortion isn't something I would choose for myself, but it is every woman's choice for herself. Yes it is. I have never been in a situation where my pregnancy wasn't wanted, but I have had to make choices in my pregnancies. I chose to let my child live as long as God allowed in my womb, as heartbreaking as it was. I can relate in some way and this is why I pray. I can stand outside of a facility that hands out pills to abort and I pray. Because Jesus says:
For I was hungry and you gave me food,
I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me,
naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.'
Then the righteous will answer him and say,
'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink?
When did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you?
When did we see you ill or in prison, and visit you?'
And the king will say to them in reply,
'Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.'
Matthew 25:35-40
I pray because these women are my sisters! They may not believe the same thing I do, they may see an abortion merely as a choice, they may see it as their only option....but they are still my sister in Christ! They may choose something I would never for myself....but that doesn't mean I should stand aside and do nothing....so I pray.
And I ask you to pray with me.

first, i truly enjoy your blog - we have a lot in common we're both georgia girls, i live in woodstock :) and we're only a handfull of weeks apart in our pregnancies. my first is now 2 - Stella.

second, i admire your stance and that you stand strong in what you believe. it's even more admirable that you're open and public with your views. kudos to you for being you and pursuing what God has called you to do.

Rebecca, forgive me my curiosity but what else you do to help? Did you adopt? Did you let any of these women into your house to stay with you? Do you regularly help at least one mother who decided to keep her baby?

I would do anything I could to help. There is a local, wonderful, pregnancy crisis center that we refer moms to if they implore our help. My church also has a very active Pro-Life organiza\
tion that raises money and accepts donations of clothings, diaper, etc. to help any woman who needs it. And the list for adoption is RIDICULOUS! And I know a pretty wonderful adoption attorney who would make the process so easy if that was the will of the woman.
