Working in the death industry takes a toll January 27, 2011

A human toll.  I think it likely that it fundamentally changes those that work in the abortion mills, making them craven and having no regard for human life.  For example:

A few weeks ago, I was driving down a major road in my area. It is one of those big, 6 lane roads with lots of traffic and lots of businesses along it. I was in the far right lane heading home from work when all of a sudden, I was nearly run off the road by another driver. I had to slam on my brakes and swerve into the shoulder of the road in order to avoid being hit by this crazy driver. I recovered quickly and continued down the road, keeping a safe distance behind the guy who just cut me off. At first I blew it off as one of our winter residents here in Florida, “Snow Birds” as we like to call them; older, retired residents who spend a few months here in the winter to avoid the cold north. About a mile down the road the car that cut me off turned into the parking lot of a professional center where I know there is an abortion clinic. I know there is a clinic there because I have spent some time in front of this clinic praying for the end of abortion. The thought occurred to me that this person just nearly ran me off the road because I am pro-life. No, I don’t think he could have recognized me for praying outside the clinic. I’m not one of the regulars who are there week after week praying for an end to abortion. All he had to do was to look at my car to see that I was pro-life. You see, in Florida, we have the option to pay a little extra for our annual license plate renewal in order to donate to a charity. As you can guess, my license plate proclaims “Choose Life.”

Our family has suffered experiences similar to this.  One abortion mill we frequently pray outside, Routh Street, is located between an alley and the southbound frontage road of Central Expressway.  It’s also located next to the White Rose crisis pregnancy center.   Because to enter the mill, the women must drive down the alley, that’s usually where we pray.  It’s also where the staff enter.  There have been several staff at the mill, nurses, who drive madly down the alley, 30-40 mph (speed limit is 10), swerving all the time, acting as if they intend to run over those praying outside, especially our kids.  They have said vile things about my wife, my children and I.  And I have seen them get in their cars, or run out on foot, to chase down women who seek to leave the abortuary.  We’ve called the police, but, of course, they do nothing.  I don’t think it a reach to say that making one’s living killing babies is soul-destroying.  I can’t imagine what it does…..I can’t imagine the all pervasive darkness that must be so prevalent.  It is known that many who work at the mills, especially the nurses, are either very young and inexperienced or older and jaded, frequently with drug or alcohol issues.   And then there are the elements of the occult and witchcraft, tied in with the most radical of feminism, that are also practiced by many who work in the mills.  All in all, there souls are surrounded by darkness.  They must be miserable, even if they would never admit it.

Still, the author relating the road rage incident makes a very necessary point.  In spite of all their horrid actions, in spite of their darkness, these are still human beings made in the image and likeness of God, and they, especially they, need our prayers:

We need to pray for those in the “Death Industry”. We need to pray for an end to the industry. For those, like Kermit Gosnell, who we see little hope for, there is still a chance that they may be cured before they die. We need to pray for them. Pray that they may come to see the light. Those in the “Death Industry” can change. They can come to an understanding of and a respect for life. Abby Johnson, a former director for Planned Parenthood, came to see the light. Others can, too.
