I attended two events at the vigil site in Atlanta. One thing I noted was something about the property itself.

The abortion center arranged spiky plants in the public right-of-way to discourage access to the women.


The most profound story I heard here came from a woman who became pregnant through a sexual assault as a teenager. She had an abortion ? and said that she healed from the assault much more quickly than from the abortion.

In fact, after the abortion, she drifted into a hard life; but eventually, she found faith and found healing ? eventually marrying and raising a family.

I couldn?t help but to think of one of my favorite Bible verses: "And we know that to them that love God, all things work together unto good" (Romans 8:28).
