"You did the best you could. The rest is in God's hands."

August 23, 2013 - 8:59pm
A recent story of a heart saved and a life spared by Cathy. It was a busy family morning when I dropped off my son at his science class and realized that the location wasn't too far from Planned Parenthood and that I had about 45 minutes. "Oh well," I thought, "I can go for a little while." I know how important Thursday's are since they often do pre-abortion ultrasounds that day at PP. So I got to the SACFL office and picked up some materials, and I headed out to the sidewalk. After about 30 minutes I encountered a lady coming out of the...Read more

January 22, 2013: "God rejoicing"

April 16, 2013 - 9:09pm
January 22, 2013 marked the memorial of the 40th year of legalized abortion in the United States since the Roe v Wade and Doe v Bolton court decisions. In that time, there have been over 55 million1 abortions – that we know of. Countless souls have been crushed, mothers of those 55 million have suffered the emotional, psychological and physical side effects of not only the procedure but of the life-long loss of their child. The father of each child, if he knew about the abortion, has suffered a lifetime of regret and lost fatherhood. 55...Read more

A Pro-Life New Year

April 2, 2013 - 9:40am
I have a confession to make. I have been working actively in the pro life movement for over a decade now and sometimes I feel like we have gotten no closer to ending abortion. Each week brings a new abortion day. To top it all off Planned Parenthood just released its annual report showing a rise in the number of abortions and an over a BILLION dollar profit for this supposed “non-profit” organization. I am tired. Isn’t it so easy to get caught up in the “I never” of life? I never get this. I never get that. Sometimes it’s too easy to walk...Read more

"I couldn't do it! I love my Jesus!"

March 21, 2013 - 7:24pm
" All good giving and every perfect gift is from above. " James 1:17 Saturday was our day at 104 Babcock for our church in Boerne. We had about 30 church members come down to pray. It was somewhat chaotic with a counter protester and other people on the sidewalk. It appeared to be a day that would be problematic and not very fruitful. Toward the end of the afternoon, one of our church members, Cathy noticed a young woman coming back to her car once she had been inside for quite some time. She did not appear to have been post abortive, but she...Read more

“A fetus isn’t a person until viability.”

March 7, 2013 - 6:05pm
A) Viability is arbitrary concept. Why not associate personhood with heartbeat, brain waves, or something else? B) The point of viability constantly changes because it depends on technology, not the unborn herself. Eventually babies may be viable from the point of conception. C) In a broad sense, many born people are not viable because they are incapable of surviving without depending on others A) Viability is arbitrary concept. Why not associate personhood with heartbeat, brain waves, or something else? Viability is the point at which the...Read more

"She really didn't want to get out of the car."

February 28, 2013 - 3:25pm
Names have been changed for privacy. Kathy shares: "Count it all joy, my brethren, when you meet various trials, for you know the testing of your faith produces steadfastness." James 1:2-3 Once Bible study was over, I got in my car planning to head straight to Planned Parenthood. You see, I had been going every day for this 40 Days for Life spring campaign, but for whatever reason, I missed yesterday. Just at the time that I normally would have been there, a mother chose life for her baby! I was thrilled for the sidewalk counselor who spoke to...Read more

February 21: A Life Saved

February 21, 2013 - 4:34pm
It was about 1:30 this afternoon and I just walked from down the street to the sidewalk in front of Planned Parenthood from buying my lunch. Finding myself discouraged by a nearly full parking lot on the day I knew the young mothers were receiving their state required pre-abortion sonogram and upset about the lies they were receiving remembering the video I just watched ( see video here ), I set my lunch down to join the other prayer warriors and sidewalk counselors to fast and pray just a bit longer. I picked up our "Pregnant? Need help?"...Read more

"It is uncertain when human life begins."

February 7, 2013 - 5:58pm
It is uncertain when human life begins; that’s a religious question that cannot be answered by science. An article printed and distributed by the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) describes as “anti-choice” the position that “human life begins at conception.” It says the prochoice position is, “Personhood at conception is a religious belief, not a provable biological fact.”1 A. If there is uncertainty about when human life begins, the benefit of the doubt should go to preserving life. B. Medical textbooks and scientific reference...Read more
