Tales from sidewalk counselling

At SoCon or Bust:

Two weeks ago, I arrived at 1pm on Friday. Just as I went over to start sidewalk counselling, a young woman (I’ll call her B.) came out and sat on the steps of 63 Bank St. She kept rubbing her belly, looking rather sad. I approached her an offered her a rosary, which she took. As I was looking through my flyers for a “How to pray the rosary” brochure, she noticed a “Rachel’s Vineyard” flyer which read “Healing after abortion”. She took it right out of my hand and said “I need that, I never want to come back here again”. She then shared with me what made her feel like she had no choice but to have an abortion.

Go read the whole thing.
