Harassment at an abortion clinic

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | May 08, 2019

Congratulations (of a sort) are due to Rep. Brian Sims, a Democratic member of Pennsylvania’s state legislature. He has done something that other pro-abortion fanatics have failed to do. He has captured videotape of harassment outside an abortion clinic.

Hasn’t it ever struck you as remarkable that, while pro-aborts constantly demand stricter laws to prevent harassment at the clinics, and while the clinics are bristling with security cameras that are perfectly positioned to capture evidence of that harassment, you’ve never actually seen the harassment?

But now Sims has provided evidence, videotaping harassment. By himself.

    Thank you dear lady for holding the line to Rep. Sims' hostile witness to the power in one woman's Rosary prayer. Of 390 only one lives, no number of active cases. said. Christian adoption agencies work until law/rule makers force closure. Labeling as "Unwanted" divines suffering as a measure that would even condemn JKR's first-born and the "Harry Potter" saga. In 1921, Dr. Marie Stopes fashioned "Every child, a wanted child." showing that Progressive politics is last centuries redux.

    Great point, Phil! As usual, "Nobody says it better!"

    This should not come as a total surprise as Western Ethicists have jettisoned any semblance of objective truth. The Dark Ages are back, and the Church of Christ is ill-fitted to save civilization at the moment. Still, we must not lose hope. As ever the Church is perfected through suffering. That always sounds insane to the worldly, and even to we believers. Maybe this is the time we walk and stumble along the Via Crucis in the service of Divine Mercy.

    Mr. Lawler: The word "clinic" implies that abortionists provide women with some level of health care. The movie "Unplanned" accurately shows that abortion mills are places where butchers heinously process women and children for money. Steve PS. I love your work. May God Bless you and your family.
