Dear Friend of Life:
You won’t believe this story — a story about a father at the abortion facility who was so upset about his preborn baby, HE HAD TO HIT SOMETHING. This past week, my fellow National Team member, Jeff and I joined the Sidewalk Advocates of Louisville on the sidewalk a couple mornings at the local abortion facility — the last remaining abortion facility in the state of Kentucky.
Nothing perhaps was more heart-wrenching than when I spoke at length with a father on the sidewalk at one point. After we began to talk, the father broke down crying about his preborn child; he allowed Jeff and me to pray with him. He accepted my invite to walk him over to the pregnancy center to hear about all the help available.
After he came out filled with hope, he sat back down to talk with me and make a plan to pull his girlfriend out.
Suddenly, his girlfriend’s mother came out and yelled at him to come inside.
About 30 minutes later, he bolted from the facility, barely able to look at either of us.
He went to his car, grabbed a golf club, and began to swing it, repeatedly striking a tree and a cardboard box on the ground out of frustration at his girlfriend’s refusal to save herself and their baby.
After he blew off some steam, Jeff was able to slip an abortionpillreversal.com card in his hand, knowing she was 9 weeks pregnant and planning on the abortion pill. Perhaps, we pray, they had a different conversation that evening and called the hotline to reverse course. Either way, this man and his family remain in our prayers.
After we persevered through that situation and others, finally, another woman we spoke with DID choose life — praise God!
At one point, Jeff snapped this picture of me standing in front of the facility — a picture that showed the sidewalk full of LIGHT in the midst of all that darkness.
Truly, this us what Sidewalk Advocates for Life is about: Filling the sidewalk with His light and sharing hope and help with hurting human souls — what a privilege!
You make hope-filled moments on the sidewalk possible. Won’t you help our ministry continue?
