I recently came across a young woman who is an abortion clinic escort. She asked why someone would stand outside an abortion clinic and preach. She calls him “A.”
>> “A” is a regular and is known for his attempts to connect with clients and companions in his approach of ‘I was just like you. I understand you. I care for you.’ This is “A.”
In this clip below, he is talking to clients and companions waiting by the entrance for the doors to open. (Note: video of minister was changed to audio only by blog owner)
“A” increases his volume after the clients enter the clinic, but his message is always the same. Escorts have heard him so many times, they can recite the story he shares on the sidewalk. ‘I wasted my life until I was 23. Then I read the Bible. My friends said they would find out about Jesus later. One died in a car wreck. He didn’t have time to find out. You never know what is going to happen. You need to find out about Jesus today.’
One of the interesting things about “A” recently is how he speaks about his wife’s pregnancy. When he first started saying, “My baby is 19 weeks old,” we thought he was talking about a born baby. No, he was talking about his wife’s pregnancy. Recently, “A” let us know his baby was 26 weeks old, adding that the baby recently became legally safe from abortion doctors. An escort observed, “I wonder if he thinks that abortion doctors do drive-by abortions and will randomly attempt an abortion if his wife gets too close to a clinic?”
My question is if he cares for the clients and companions so much, why does he speak words meant to shame and harass them for their decision? I know that is a rhetorical question and won’t be answered, but it doesn’t matter if you scream your words or softly speak them. You are still there to interfere with a legal, medical decision by any way you can. <<
I will be referring to this post in an upcoming Part 2 post which will also be one of personal testimony.
