Back in the 1990′s, some pro-abortion folks suggested that pro-lifers formed a “conspiracy” and thus they needed to use federal racketeering laws to try to stop us. At the time I was active full-time in pro-life work and I found the accusation of “conspiracy” quite funny, as most pro-lifers could never agree on strategy on just about anything. I would joke that if you had ten pro-lifers in the room, that meant you had ten different ideas of the “best” way to combat abortion. I wish there were a conspiracy!
Because of that experience, I try to be supportive of all pro-life activity, whether it be activism, prayer, counseling, or political action. Anything that brings us closer to a society that recognizes the humanity of the unborn child in law and daily life is a good thing. But I admit that I have a soft spot for praying at abortion clinics. To me, nothing is more important than praying the Rosary in front of a place that kills innocent children in the womb. It is like going into the heart of the Enemy’s camp and detonating our most powerful weapon. I can just imagine how the demons who encircle a clinic cringe when they see a Rosary being pulled out.
Summer is a great time to engage in this activity. With children out of school and the weather quite nice, a whole family can take time each week to pray a Rosary in front of an abortion clinic. My own wife takes our children to do this, and it only takes about 20 minutes, but I believe it does a world of good. Consider making this a practice in your own family (or by yourself) this summer.
Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us!
