Day 19 - where do we go from here?

With a Monday to Friday clinic - there are times when we vigil and that metal gate is shut and bolted across the parking lot entrance, the doors are locked and the lights are off.  Our prayers are not wasted on the weekends when the clinic is closed...
Here are some thoughts from a day that the usually bustling clinic sat empty...  This is our prayer - our vision - in joining in this effort.  We want to see an end to abortion.  When that end comes, will we follow through to what comes next?  Where do we go from here?

empty parking lot

i think both sides of the abortion debate would be happy to know that the parking lot was empty today- aside from those who see abortion as their source of income during a pressing economic time - and maybe even they... would breathe a sigh of relief that for one day - the clinic sat open... but empty.
The friend that i went with has been pursuing adoption over these last long months (years?) and her conversation was confirmation in my heart that my Father wants me to ache for the fatherless, the orphaned and abandoned.
Adoption is prolife too...

Thoughts from an adoptive mom, becky:

I want to talk to you about what it means to be pro-life.
Most people think that just means "against abortion" . It is so much more than that. It means that you are FOR LIFE, IN SUPPORT of LIFE.
I was blessed to grow up in a home where this was as normal as breathing. Both of my sisters are adopted and I adore them.
If you are against abortion, then what are you willing to do?
