This is me and “V”, a woman I met about a year or so ago at this very place, the busiest abortion mill in Charlotte. Back then, V was inside that abortion center, ready to end her baby’s life. She heard us on the microphone, pleading for the women inside to listen to God who would never abandon them. Instead of abortion, V chose life for that precious child in my arms. It has been a privilege to walk with her on this journey of faith, and trusting in God. It has not always been easy, but she has never regretted her choice.
She returned Saturday to stand on the sidewalks of the abortion mill, and plead with the women walking in. “Don’t go in those doors! Come talk to me. I know what you are going through. You don’t have to do this!” She called out boldly, and many paused to listen to her. The sincerity in her voice was unmistakable.
During part of the morning, I ducked into the RV with the mobile ultrasound unit to help counsel a Hispanic woman who spoke no English. I used the Google Translator app on my phone and we found out what we needed to know to help her. We were able to get her the ultrasound and information she needed. She was not abortion-minded, but was in hard circumstances, and our follow-up counseling with a Spanish-speaking counselor will be critical.
“Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25:40
“But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect, having a good conscience, so that, when you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame.”
“We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ.”
