Pro-life Walk Organizers Trash the Truth

Galatians 4:16- "Have I now become your enemy by telling you the truth?"

May 7, 2005

Written by Angela Michael

 

A remnant of lifesavers showed-up at the Pregnancy Resource Center “Walk for Life” over in St. Louis , Missouri . You remember this organization and their latest fundraising travesty with marketing director Keith Thorn was that they hired Miss Missouri; pro-choice and a speaker for NARAL, to speak at their spring 2004 pro-life banquet, and they only canceled due to pressure in the eleventh hour. (read about this at smallvictoriesusa.com under 'Miss Missouri .')

 This is a mega-huge, once a year event where thousands of pro-life Christians collect pledge money and walk for babies. This was an opportunity to hand out nice invitational flyers encouraging walkers that they can help some more after this event and throughout the year, literally saving babies at death’s door. Approximately 500 flyers were printed out. Proclaimers and their children handed the flyers out and placed some on cars for those already inside the park for their walk. These flyers were to inform and educate these pro-lifers about the Granite City , Illinois abortion clinic that specializes in late-term abortions and the need for any who want to do more, after the Walk, and to come to the clinic and take a stand and speak out for the lives of the 150-200 babies that are slaughtered every week!

            Unfortunately, just as the walk was finishing, the CEO Mark Dungan and two women organizers for this walk made a decision to remove and discard all of the flyers before anyone could return from the walk to read them! One proclaimer from our group was left, with a baby in her arms and a little one near by, to plead with the heads of this organization to please let this word get out to these people, who have a heart for the unborn. Debbie, wearing her pro-life t-shirt “Jesus is the Standard, Pro-life- no compromise, no exception, no apology” and crying, begged them to please let her put the flyers back on the cars…but Mr. Dungan said “No!!” They stood there holding three oversized trash bags filled with the flyers. They belittled and tormented this prayer warrior, they told her that these flyers would let women at this event know where to go for a partial- birth abortion and it gave directions. Debbie couldn’t believe her ears. At one point she said, “We’re not here for your money,”… But you see, this organization was threatened by this little remnant, they didn’t want the truth to come out. They didn’t want other pro-life Christians to know there is a more effective way to fight the battle and save lives. Unfortunately, a lot of pro-life organizations have turned into huge financial ministries and lose their focus on the cause. They don’t want to share a slice of pie from their kingdom. It’s sad, this is why the pro-life movement will never win. These types just want to play a good game, not to win the battle over abortion. Just to ensure and further their careers.

            But God is faithful! Those few walkers who received the flyers, who now know, broke down in tears after learning about “those horrors that go on in that abortion clinic." God’s will, will be done! He has ordered us to… “Expose the unfruitful works of darkness. For it is shameful to even speak of those things which are done by them in secret.” Ephesians 5:11-12. We will continue, we will go on… “Therefore, I have set my face like a flint, and I know that I will not be ashamed. He is near who justifies me. Who will contend with me? Let us stand together…” Isaiah 50:17-18
