Wow! Gut wrenching! An effective rebuttal to Calvinist redefining of sovereignty as well. 


When describing the women sitting in the waiting room of an abortion clinic, “Their pinched faces are full of determination and terror. Big-eyed, bird-like, pale, hawk-handed in fright, they seem like lost souls before the final judgment.”  I am reminded of most of the women I have counseled in Post Abortion Bible studies.  Many of them retelling their stories of sitting in the waiting rooms and screaming on the inside.  Many saying if only one person had said something to them, they would have walked out.  That is why prolife people talk to women going into clinics, why pregnancy centers exist, we must continue the fight.  This is so hard to read, yet we must.  I pray for every single one of them.  May they find the freedom that Christ paid for at the cross.
