What about those who are pro-life?“Maintain the loving peaceful approach and pray for everybody in those buildings: staff, women going in for procedures, family members. It goes hand in hand with being pro-life,” said Noemi. “Pro-life is love, period. It means loving the baby, the mother, the father, the person coercing the mother into abortion, the post abortive AND the abortion workers. We are no better than anyone else if we have not had to walk in such difficult shoes or even if we have had to and made better choices. In the pro-life movement, there is no place, room or time for anger towards those that are hurting. Love these mothers to the truth. Love these workers out. Get rid of the nasty signs. As Sidewalk Advocates For Life suggests, replace them with signs that point to resources, not your opinion. It is so much more productive,” said Tricia. Added Noemi, “It is important for anyone who is outside these facilities is to remember that even though they may not see the fruits of their labor, they are making a difference. They can't stop. It’s important to continue with the relentless petitions and prayers because that is chipping away at the wall that everyone inside has built around them. I know I wouldn’t be where I am today without the unconditional love, relentless prayers and acceptance that I have received from ATTWN and Sidewalk Advocates for Life. My cup runneth over at the thought of just how blessed I am to have the all in my life.” ATTWN has had 480 abortion workers quit thus far. 59 of them came via Sidewalk Advocates for Life.
