Young pro-lifers a powerful witness at Chicago abortion facility

Every Saturday, dedicated pro-lifers - women and men - pray and sidewalk counsel at Chicago area abortion clinic, hoping to persuade the abortion-bound women not to go through with the procedure.

At a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in downtown Chicago, a group of young adults provides the weekly pro-life witness. And at the same time, individuals working or volunteering for Planned Parenthood act as “escorts” for the clinic’s patrons.

Sad stories are not uncommon in this endeavor, including one told by Kelly (last name withheld per request), a regular pro-life witness at the clinic.

“This teenaged boy abruptly came out of the [Planned Parenthood clinic],” recounted Kelly. “I did not ask him his age, but there was no way he was over 17. He was crying, very pale and shaking.”

Kelly continued: “I stopped my prayers and walked up to the boyGǪand asked him if I could do anything for him. I looked into his eyes and realized that he knew that his child had been killed.”

Kelly then recounted that the young man subsequently fell to his knees and began to vomit, before going back into the clinic.
