Missionaries: Jacqueline, Theresa, Ben & Mary Jo

Jesus said:
"For from within, out of the heart of men (& women), proceed evil thoughts, fornications, murders ...deed of ... wickedness...
All these things proceed from within ..."
Mark 7:20-23

Abortion is not primarily a problem of circumstance.
Abortion is not primarily a problem of relationship.
Abortion is not primarily a problem of proverty.
Abortion is primarily a problem of the heart.
Abortion is a problem of sin.

Mary Jo reporting:

It was a pretty typical day at OWC. Many women came to have their
children slaughtered and few would talk or take packets.

The only aborting mommy we had much interaction with was a 14 year
old girl who was brought by her Mom. Her mom was hell-bent on having
her little grandchild killed. She gave all sorts of excuses: the girl's age
and the age of her boyfriend (14 as well), the fact that she had taken
antibiotics before finding out she was pregnant. When confronted with
the law of God ("You shall not murder", "Shed not innocent blood in this place"
the pregnant girl's mother made it clear that she was presuming upon His mercy
("Oh, God forgives"), like so many churchgoers who butcher their children.
Apparently the daughter had known for a while that she was pregnant before she told
her mother.

Ben questioned the mother with a hypothetical situation.
"Suppose your daughter had carried the child to term without telling
you. Would you kill it then?" Mrs Church Lady responded by saying
"Of course I wouldn't, but this baby is not here yet."
Ben said the child was in fact here and her heart breaking reply was,
"Well, it won't be in a couple of hours."
I was stunned!

They opened the doors of the clinic early, so there was not a line of people to
preach to outside, but Ben was able to preach to the group inside.
After his faithful exhortation, we left.

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men,
who suppress the truth in unrighteousness ...
being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness ...evil; full of ...murder ... malice;
they are ...haters of God... inventors of evil... unloving, unmerciful; and although they know the ordinance of God,
that those who practice such things are worthy of death,
they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.
Romans 1:18, 29-32

All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.
Thomas Jefferson

The underground railroad for the babies is totally dependent upon you.
The babies can't run.
