News from the trenches

Report from Family Planning Associates, Miramar Rd. - Saturday, Feb. 2

When the first counselor arrived at Family Planning Associates, there was already a group of people in a car waiting.  The counselor talked with them and they said they drove two hours to get to the clinic.  The young woman in the passenger seat said she was 13 weeks.  The counselor showed her a model of what her baby looked like and then began to show her how the abortion would be performed.  She seemed sad that she was there but said she was young and was not ready to handle a baby.  The counselor assured her there would be help for her and urged them to go to Culture of Life Family Services.  They sat in their car for some time but eventually went in. She came out in a little over an hour and looked to be in distress.  She would not tell the counselor what happened.  Please pray for C.

Soon after a truck came into the lot with a woman and two men.  Another counselor gave them information and then another counselor talked with them.  They were horrified at the doctor’s record.  The woman appeared to be farther along in her pregnancy.  She told the counselors that she did not feel right about this place because when she called to make the appointment they told her she would be put to sleep.  They were urged to call Culture of Life Family Services or any other pregnancy center to get help.  They thanked the counselors and got into their truck and left.

A mother and daughter pulled into the lot and the counselor approached them.  They were very friendly and listened to all the information the counselor gave them.  The mother told the counselor that her daughter had just come from one of the local hospitals and had suffered a miscarriage.  They were told she had to have a D & C.  They were concerned about Family Planning Associates.  One of the prayer warriors came to assist and helped them call one of the doctors at Culture of Life Family Services.  They were given information as to what to do and gave the counselors big hugs and then left.  They both assured the counselors that abortion would never be an option.

Two of the counselors spoke with a couple who went into Family Planning Associates.  However she came out about an hour later and told the counselor she did not go through with it.  However, she was not responsive to the help the counselor offered.  Please pray that whatever the circumstance that this woman choose life for her baby.

Another woman left the clinic after being there for about an hour but gave no information.

    It is so sad because many people do not understand that life begins at conception. That is why many do not feel that having an abortion before 15 weeks is murdering an unborn.

    A few weeks ago I was in heavy dialogue with a friend about this topic. His argument was “what about the woman, you think she has to have a baby when she doesn’t want one?” He kept making many excuses, I brought up that adopting is a loving option, I also discussed the importance of chastity etc.

    • One of the OT Laws goes: Do not boil the calf in the mother’s milk. But this is exactly what society is doing today with its institution of abortion. Society persuades mothers to kill their babies. Society uses mothers to instigate the unnatural deaths of their babies. Society’s babies are being killed by their mothers’ “milk”, call it mother’s “love”, mother’s charm, mother’s vanity … that which is the essense of the mother is what the babies are being killed in by the will of society. Society is boiling its kids in their mothers’ milk. This is a metaphor based not on technical definitions but on nature. Mother’s milk is for nurturing her offspring, not for cooking them. The devil is a great dragon and wants to devour, ie eat, the Child whom the Mother is fleeing with. The devil wants to merge with souls by having them feast on babies … This is the mockery and demonic imitation of the Holy Mass. Abortion is a demonic religious ritual celebrated by the devil, joined by millions of souls. It is the devil’s global blood sacrifice.

        Skai I love what you posted. Excellent words to convey! Very well conveyed! Excellent example too. You are so right how this society is persuading unsuspecting women and how they are used to bring down others in that murder spree.

        They say misery loves company… yes, scorned bitter women do not want to be alone so they have to raise their daughters to think their way, they have to condition their young sons to think that a woman has the right to do what they want with their bodies.

    This society is in great deep trouble Lord, please come to our rescue. Our brothers and sisters are lacking character and virtues. Lord help us to continue to hunger for your graces, they are precious pearls in which we need to help us grow in what good we are lacking. Lord one lacks while another is being sacrificed, the unborn are being slaughtered…..God help us stop this.

    Mercy Lord, Mercy.

    Today I was changing radio stations looking for a song to listen too, when I got to a Mexican channel, they had a beautiful song that went like this “Mother please don’t abort me, let me live mother, please let me live, I want to live etc etc.”

    The singer had a wonderful powerful voice, he was speaking up for the unborn and it was so touching. Wow at least in Mexico they don’t censor songs like that and allow it to air on regular music stations. So powerful and it shows you that people still have fear of the Lord in them. That they understand the value in life and allow those beautiful touching songs to play on regular radio station. I was very impressed.
