too late for life”
to the Editor November
I listened to the radio as a woman told her story of transformation
from being the director of a Planned Parenthood office to a pro-life
advocate. She had convinced herself that she was doing good work at
Planned Parenthood. Women needed her help; God approved of it.
Then the economy declined, and although Planned Parenthood offers
many services, its most lucrative is abortion. She was told to encourage
pregnant women toward abortion as opposed to adoption or parenthood. She
began to doubt her position.
The turning point for her was watching a sonogram of a baby, safe in
his mother's womb, then watching the abortion of that same baby. The
murder of that child broke her heart. She knew then she was part of a
horrible evil but didn't know to whom to turn.
Just then she looked out the window and saw the pro-life advocates
quietly praying. She went to them and wept. They accepted her with open
arms, and now she is one of them.
We are blessed to have these same pro-life heroes in our community.
Daniel and Angela Michael lead the Small Victories Ministry. They have
stood outside the Hope Abortion Clinic for 17 years. They have given
their lives selflessly for this cause. They adopted a beautiful little
girl who was saved from abortion.
I don't think the Michaels could do more. But I know the rest of us
can. And, as the woman on the radio proved, it's never too late to
change one's position.
