Reader's view: Hearts hardened toward abortion can change


Fr. Frank Pavone
National Director, Priests for Life

Duluth News Tribune


Sidewalk protesters who withstand verbal and sometimes physical abuse in an effort to stop women from entering abortion clinics have reason to be proud of their efforts. Leah Winandy risked her own life for her pro-life principles when a woman headed into the badly named Building for Women in Duluth and held a knife to her throat (“Woman accused of brandishing knife at protest,” Nov. 25). But the woman came to her senses, put away the knife and, finally, decided not to have the abortion (“Clinic assailant cancels abortion,” Feb. 17).

If this case doesn’t show that hearts hardened toward abortion can be changed, I don’t know what does. The woman changed her mind because of the love shown to her. Truly, with God, there are no lost causes. I can’t think of a greater encouragement to those who prayerfully stand for life in front of abortion clinics across the country.
