"Back alley abortions. These three words commonly used by pro-abortion activists bring to mind a desperate woman secretively knocking on an unmarked door, whispering the name of a friend who referred her. The phrase conjures images of dirty instruments, brutal pain, infection and death.With abortion now widely available—legal, safe and rare, so we’re told—this gruesome image is supposed to be a horror of the past.
Except it isn’t.
An Internet search on the phrase botched abortion brings up 540,000 results in a split second. Here’s a sampling from just the first page:
911 Call Warned Woman Dying from Botched Abortion (March 2014)And of course, the horror of Kermit Gosnell’s legal back-alley-style butcher shop in inner-city Philadelphia made headlines around the world.

The truth is, while “legal” still plagues those who fight against abortion and “rare” has long since surrendered, even “safe” offers no guarantee at all. The back alley is now Main Street, with the blessing of the U.S. Supreme Court." From Brad Mattes: http://www.lifeissues.org/
So, what can you do about all this? Pray! PRAY and FAST. St. Peter Chrysologus (died about 450, long before the parting of ways) said, "Fasting is the soul of prayer, mercy is the lifeblood of fasting. So if you pray, fast; if you fast, show mercy...." Sounds like 40 Days for Life, doesn't it. Be PRAYERFULLY Pro-Life. be PEACEFULLY Pro-Life, showing mercy, never condemnation..
