Well, it's becoming a routine....each week results in one or more turnarounds due to prayer warrior sacrifice on the sidewalk. Praise God and pray that His blessings continue to increase!
Last week another customer of Planned Parenthood opted for the Women's Care Center instead. When the sidewalk counselor offered a flyer on getting a second opinion across the street, the two women who had intended to enter the abortuary, approached him. One of them was coming for a pregnancy test and birth control but indicated she was against abortion and would keep her baby if she found out she was pregnant. When it was pointed out to them that Planned Parenthood is Wisconsin's leading abortion provider, they were surprised. He explained that many services are available to them at the Women's Care Center and that all services are free. They entered Planned Parenthood but didn't stay long. Later they told the sidewalk counselor that they "liked the Women's Care Center....much more calming and they're much nicer!"
This is how God uses us! We are His vessels. We are here to do His will. It is our choice whether to be obedient, to do what is asked of us. Planned Parenthood violates the fifth commandment (and others) daily - Thou shalt not kill! What are YOU doing about it? Indifference gives them permission and reinforces their grievous sin! And it drags other unknowing souls down with them.
If you choose you can keep the commandments; it is loyalty to do his will. There are set before you fire and water; to whichever you choose, stretch forth your hand. Before man are life and death, whichever he chooses shall be given him. Choose life!" (Sirach -17)
We cannot call ourselves pro-life and do nothing about it! There are many hours open this week and EVERY week on the Vigil for Life calendar. If you haven't committed to an hour or hours, it's time to "walk the walk". It is our duty. We will be held accountable for our response to God's call.

"In the course of life, mortifications will not be lacking for us. Let us love them; let us embrace them with a cheerful soul, and let us always bless the good God in everything." (Saint Padre Pio)
