"The God you pray to doesn't exist!" shouted a woman from her car to Beth and Hannah who were holding their ?pray to end abortion? signs.

?Thank you for looking at our signs,? Beth replied. ?(Curse) you. Have a nice day,? she shouted back as she sped away.

It?s a bit odd that someone who is so sure there is no God would be so angry in asserting it ... it?s also interesting that her assertion that God doesn?t exist settled the whole argument about abortion for her.

An atheist could make a strong case against abortion. Science tells us life begins at conception, and anyone who looks at an ultrasound can see there?s a baby in the womb ...

Our vigils do more than send a message of love for the unborn and hope for the mothers.

Through the grace of Christ, we testify that everyone ? the children in the womb, the mothers who carry them, the boyfriends who come to the clinic, the Planned Parenthood workers, the drivers who honk and wave, the strung-out addicts, and the woman tossing F-bombs from the car ? are all created in God?s image, and their lives have meaning and purpose. There?s no reason we shouldn?t have a nice day.
