At the last 40 Days for Life kickoff rally, I spoke about the need for pastors to rise up and bring their churches to the abortion mills. Most everyone at the rally agreed with me that the pastors had to lead out in the fight against abortion: all but one person. He was a local pastor that had come to justify what he and his church were doing. After a number of talks, he asked if he could say something. That was all right by me, but I knew what he was going to say.
His church was pro-life and prayed for the pro-life movement. Then he added that they were active in drug prevention, visiting the prison and helping the poor. He believed that abortion was just one of the evils in
As I pondered what he had said, the Lord brought this thought to mind. His church visited those in prison, they fed the poor, they helped people get off drugs and they PRAYED FOR PRO-LIFE.

ABORTION KILLS ANOTHER HUMAN BEING. THE CHILD IN THE WOMB IS EVERY BIT ALIVE AS SOMER THOMPSON AND ALL THE OTHER POOR CHILDREN THAT ARE KIDNAPPED, MOLESTED AND MURDERED EACH YEAR.
When a pastor tells me that his church prays for abortion, gives to a pregnancy center or a home for unwed mothers, I tell them that what they are doing is wonderful but IT IS NOT ENOUGH, PRAYER IS JUST NOT ENOUGH!

C. T. Studd once said, “Some may wish to live within the sound of church and chapel bell. I want to run a rescue shop within a yard of hell”..
A good place to start- on the sidewalk next to the gates of hell, an abortion clinic. The work is to convince the girls and women to not ruin their lives nor kill their baby. Sometimes there is the opportunity to witness and see people accept the Lord Jesus as Savior.
There are three abortion clinics in
