Some Rules for Standing at Abortion
Each year, thousands of children are saved from abortion
and abortionist repent to accept Christ when caring Christians stand in
front of abortion mills throughout America.
Children are alive today because Christians took an hour
or two each week to go to their local abortion mill and offer help and
assistance to moms and dads as they arrive for an appointment. Many
of theses children have graduated from college and are now on their way to
becoming leaders in industry or the community.
Planned Parenthood, America's largest abortion provider,
admits that the number one reason for the decline in abortions the past
few years is because Christians were outside abortion mills. The
second reason is that there are fewer doctors performing abortions: they
don't want a job where protestors or sidewalk counselors show up.
What should you do outside an abortion
FIRST - Pray. We should stand in front of the abortion mill
in humility and pray, acknowledging Jesus as Lord. After all,
abortion is a sin caused by rejecting Christ and His Word. This is
why abortion is a a gospel issue.
Second - we are there to offer Christian Love and Help. When
you love someone, you let them know when they are doing something wrong.
These moms and dads going into the mill have bought the lie that abortion
is their only choice. Most are not aware that there is true
Christian help in their community.
Third - Hold informational signs that reveal the horror and
danger of abortion. When someone is there holding a sign, many women
never go into the death camp. Graphic signs upset some people, but
it usually upsets those that say the baby is only a blob of tissue - a
photo of what an abortion does refutes this lie.
Fourth - Never go to an abortion mill alone, especially if
you are new to witnessing to people in this open or street preaching
Fifth - If someone becomes violent or threatens you, call the
police. If a problem occurs, obey all the orders of the police
officers - many are simply wanting everybody to be safe. If you feel
the police officer is wrong in his request, you should still immediately
obey and then report this to the Pro-Life person in charge.
Sixth - Touch no one nor their vehicles. Never do
something wrong in hopes that some good will come of it - God does
not bless wickedness regardless of the motive.
Seventh - Do not yell at anyone in the face. When
they are in front of you, talk normally, even if they are irate.
Remember, your ultimate goal is to bring them to a point that they
submit their life to Jesus Christ. There may be someone who
will try to coerce you into a fight. Don't take anything they say
personally - they are in rebellion with God. Ignore them and let a
Pro-Life leader know about the situation.
Eight - Everyone is permitted on public streets and sidewalks and
you may find pro-abortion protestor standing next to you. They are
not the enemy - the devil is. Use that opportunity to open a dialog.
Sometimes abortion staff members work there because they feel trapped.
You might be able to offer them help at finding a different job.
Ninth - Sometimes abortion mills are on busy and dangerous streets.
We must be careful where we stand. Although you want people to see
your sign, please be mindful not to block the view of a driver.
Remember, you want to save lives, not cause a fatality. If children
are with you, make sure they are away from traffic (harnesses are
available for small children when they are not in strollers).
Tenth - Dress appropriately for the weather.
Dehydration can occur even in cold weather. Refresh yourself with
symptoms of heat stress and stroke. Also plot the best route to the
nearest emergency room - just in case someone falls or becomes ill.
Finally - because of the immoral actions of vigilantes who think
they are pro-life when they are not (i.e. brawlers, murderers, arsonists)
some abortion sites have protective zones issued by a court. Such is
the aftermath of what happens when people do evil things in hope that it
will yield a good result. Sin never delivers total satisfaction and
it will always cost you more than you can pay. This is another
reason to make sure you go out with a seasoned veteran of the Pro-Life
movement so that you can learn about such restrictions the easy way.
Abide by the restrictions and report anyone who makes vigilante comments
about doing something illegal to try to stop abortion to your local law
enforcement. Remember, you are out there to glorify Jesus and save
lives - even though the world will often misunderstand you and demonize
you for daring to take a stand for righteousness.
introduce you to a national organization that will not compromise on
the personhood of the pre-born.
