SOURCE: A “pro-life” group in Arkansas is celebrating (they sent out a press release!) the closing of The Fayetteville Women’s Clinic, one of only two places in Arkansas that perform abortions. According o the press release, the group says…
“This will be the sixth abortion center at a location where 40 Days for Life’s peaceful prayer vigils have been conducted to go out of business,” said Shawn Carney, 40 Days for Life campaign director. “It is truly an answer to prayer that abortions will no longer be carried out at this facility. All the glory belongs to God.” [...]
“How humbling will it be,” asked Carney, “to see God use the simplicity of prayer, fasting, outreach, and vigil to bring an end to abortion in many more areas, just like Fayetteville?”
“We rejoice over the babies that will be saved and the parents who will be spared from a lifetime of regret,” said Juliet Cassell, Fayetteville coordinator for 40 Days for Life, upon learning of the facility’s closure.”
The real reason the clinic is closing is because the doctor has leukemia. He’s expected to make a full recovery and reopen the clinic as soon as he can.
Still, the “pro-life” group claims responsibility (like Al-Qaeda!!). According to the press release…
“We have no doubt that the hundreds of volunteers who faithfully prayed outside that facility, as well as the dozens of pro-life counselors who lovingly offered alternatives to potential abortion customers, had an impact on the business of the Fayetteville Women’s Clinic — and this facility’s announced closure is certainly an answer to prayers.
Dr. Harrison and I have communicated on many occasions by e-mail over the last several years, and he knows that the local Fayetteville 40 Days for Life volunteers regularly pray for him and wish him no harm.”
They pray for him. That’s nice. I wonder if they say nice things to God about him. Are they taking credit for his cancer, too? Or just the closing.
And I suppose by “no harm,” they mean we’re going to celebrate your unfortunate circumstances…
Yeah, that’s definitely “pro life.”
