The Battle

...Ground view. Thankfully, I've not had to experience prosecution. But I've had my picture taken many times, the security people have tried to intimidate me by "getting in my face" literally. There's a risk each time we go and pray at an abortuary. Holding a rosary and standing on public access is provocation enough for people whose consciences are seared, yet who try to silence it in their own minds.
Plea deal in abortion scuffle

One of two women accused of scrapping with an anti-abortion protester in front of Flagstaff City Hall has decided to accept six months of unsupervised probation to make the charges go away...

...Witnesses told police that the two women approached Wallace and began to try to take and destroy the sign he was holding. Wallace had to physically restrain the women. Minor injuries were reported.
If you're considering going to pray at an abortuary, my advice is to have gone to Confession, to have prayed and fasted beforehand. Satan will accuse you and try to intimidate you. He'll lie to you that nothing you do will work. Abortion is too entrenched. Don't listen. Don't give up. Remember that the prayer of a righteous man availeth much. Invoke the saints. Ask people to pray with you who can't go. Our prison ministry director has the inmates praying concurrent to our time at the abortuary. Do you know how powerful that is? The world may see us as quixotic, but keep in mind Gideon and his three hundred men against tens of thousands...with trumpet and candle in clay jar. God triumphs. Remember that. Our travails on earth are temporal. The Eternal God is.
