A volunteer in Hackensack posted a note on the 40 Days for Life blog (October 2012).
She had a profoundly sad realization:
"Every woman was brought in by a man.
The parking lot was full of men pacing, smoking
or sitting in their cars.
For every abortion, there is a man — a father
— presiding over the death of his child."
She recalled the TV shows of years ago, where nervous
fathers paced in hospital waiting rooms, reacting with
joy when the nurse came in to say, "It's a girl!" or
"It's a boy!"
"What a contrast to that scene," she said, "where all
these men were waiting to hear one thing: 'It's over,'
which is followed by taking a weeping woman home."
But it's NOT over.
Abortion is Forever.
