Kay (not her real name) sat with her boyfriend in the car today during the "observation" time after taking the first half of RU486, sometimes called the "French abortion pill". It's a dangerous two-part abortion drug(s) that even many "pro-choice" folks think is inadvisable.
If RU486 were peanut butter, the FDA would have it off the shelves within a day.
Sullen. She wouldn't look or talk to those praying for her on the sidewalk ... neither would he. After an hour, Kay and the boyfriend went into the abortion center for only a few minutes and came back out. She was clearly upset. In the car she began to cry. Her shoulders shook.
The sidewalk counselor caught Kay's eye and mouthed: "Are you OK?" She shook her head as he was moving the car toward the exit. The boyfriend stopped the car and rolled down the window. A short but intense dialogue opened up.
She was having second thoughts about her decision. There is still time.
A doctor's name was given to her. "Call them... They will take you right away." The sidewalk counselor and Kay exchanged names. Kay repeatedly said, "thank you" before they drove away.
The sidewalk counselor called the doctor's office and gave them a heads-up.
Hopefully Kay will call.
Tonight and tomorrow, Kay will decide whether to take the second set of pills ... or not.
Babies have survived RU486 and were born healthy.
Pray for protection for Kay and her baby.
Time is ticking.

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in the day battle;
Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
And do thou, Prince of the heavenly host,
By the Power of God, cast into hell satan and all the evil spirits,
That prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.
