“Brothers and sisters: For freedom Christ set us free;so stand firm and do not submit again to the yoke of slavery” Galatians 5:1
Whether or not the dialog in the movie, “Lincoln”, is from historical records or the paraphrasing by screen writers, there are two scenes in the movie that drew my attention for reasons other than the fight against slavery. Lincoln was not only a freedom fighter for the people of his time, but for people of all time, even the unborn. This information is brought out in a movie that was produced by two names not associated with the pro-life movement. In fact, the two main producers are often associated politically with having strong ties to pro-choice and pro-abortion candidates. Lincoln, if he lived today, they may have even campaigned against. Because, as demonstrated, at least in the movie’s dialog, Lincoln had concern for the unborn.
The fight against slavery is still going on. Abortion clinics target minority populations and the poor.
Reports from the shift managers follow.
Sally from morning shift writes:
“The morning church for the vigil was the Evangelical Free Church of
McKeesport. They always have a great turnout. They come in two
separate waves in a small bus. That’s Dean’s church, so he was with
them in the first wave. About a dozen were with us through the course
of the morning, and three of them were still there when I went home at
It was a slow abortion day with only a few clients going in early.
None would take literature. A lady I did not recognize, and two
students were the abortionists of the day. They went in about 9:05.
A man walking down the street said to one of the church members,
“I’m going to pray for you to all go away.” The member responded.
“Go ahead, but it won’t help. We’ll still be here.”
That was the only comment or interaction of the morning. We distributed some literature
to passers-by, but almost all of them ignored us. It was a very warm
& somewhat humid morning.
A little rain fell, not even enough to be noticed. Sally
Dean, a member of the church, and also a shift manager, sent in this information:
I wasn’t there as a shift mgr. but, enjoyed the opportunity to stand strong with my church, First Evangelical Free Church.
Pictured are Pastor Kirk and Lisa. Also pictured are Terry and Roy. There wasn’t much traffic going into P.P. this morning (and that’s a good thing). Bill H. got an opportunity to witness to a young man who lost controlof his bicycle as he was turning from Smithfield onto Liberty. The young man said that he was lucky but, Bill reminded him that a bus or some other heavy vehicle could have easily been directly behind him and that he should thank God for sparing him. You just don’t know what opportunity God may provide for you to share your witness. Dean
Sheila can tough it out with the teenagers!! Another busy Tuesday on the street! I got quite a lot of information into the hands of passers-by. Boy, those high schoolers are tough, though. They wouldn’t take the Just for Guys /Just for Girls brochures that I got from Human Life Alliance. Already indoctrinated. Several joked how they love abortion. A few teens, 2 girls and the one’s boyfriend, and an older woman, stood inside the circle fit for a while. They were uncomfortable with my conversing with them but they did take information. I encouraged them to look at the fetal models and they did. I gave them each one to take and explained the early stages of fetal development. I asked if one was pregnant and they just laughed. Whatever reason they were at PP, let’s pray for them. Thanks to Seamus, Rich, Roseann, and Johnny for answering the call to stand with me this afternoon.
“Sweet and peaceful crew runs last lap of day!
A pregnant woman needs support not an abortion.
Thanks to all who witnessed today. In my email tonight was a message from my undergraduate school on a social network. It stated:
A grateful heart opens your life to miracles!
Thank you for everything you do…..love the Big Guy!!!! (Well, I think He would say that to all who witness for his little ones! )
