The Abortionist's Signs...
It's hard to remember back to before we began doing this and the abortion site didn't have the following signs:
God allows us to choose eternal life or eternal death. What choice are you making?
And this one:
My response to this sign has always been that little does Dr. Stutes know but my feeling regarding him, rather than judging him, is "There but for the Grace of God go I." At the same time, it is possible to judge the behavor, the act of committing an abortion, even if we do not presume to judge the state of his soul. We certainly pray that he comes to a realization that abortion ends the life of an innocent child. It is truly a dead-end choice for all involved.
And these signs have made it readily evident what occurs inside the previously hidden abortion site, helping to bring more people to pray, even unconsciously as they pass and realize that this is the site where abortions are done.
