State regulations might stem the flow of innocent preborn blood temporarily, but the wicked have the power and means to bring their death pits up to code. Folks, we need to establish “Personhood” and the basic civil right of life for the preborn and abolish this bloodthirsty practice of abortion. – Angela Wittman, ed.
North Alabama’s lone abortion clinic re-opens on Sparkman Drive in Huntsville after long absence
By Steve Doyle – Posted at AL.com:
HUNTSVILLE, Alabama – After a nearly four-month gap, North Alabama once again has a licensed abortion provider.
Alabama Women’s Center for Reproductive Alternatives, which closed its downtown Huntsville clinic in late June, re-opened Monday at 4831 Sparkman Drive after getting the OK from state Department of Public Health officials.

Clinic owner Dalton Johnson said he is “extremely relieved” to be back in business after having to vacate the former clinic on Madison Street, which could not be retrofitted to comply with the Alabama Women’s Health and Safety Act of 2013. The act placed tougher building standards on abortion clinics, including overhead sprinkler systems and doors and hallways wide enough to accommodate ambulance gurneys.
“A lot of obstacles were coming in front of us, but we just kept moving forward,” Johnson told AL.com Wednesday.

When I first encountered the following quote on a popular pro-life blog, I had to do a double take and reread it in full context.
Remember that these abortionists are misguided. They are sinners, just like you and me. And they are also REDEEMABLE. They are not our enemy. Our enemy is the sin of abortion.
These misguided souls are our brothers and sisters in Christ, whether you like it or not. Let this be a reminder to pray for their conversion with increased fervor.
If you don’t believe that these abortionists featured in “After Tiller” can experience a conversion, then you don’t know the same God I do. The God I serve is in the business of miracles.
On one hand Abby Johnson says abortionists are “our brothers and sisters in Christ.” Then she asks us to “pray for their conversion.” Although tempered with some truth, this is a serious error.
First, people who are unrepentant and murder children for a living are not our “brothers and sisters in Christ.” No Christian disagrees that an abortionist can repent and experience the love and grace of Jesus Christ. No one disagrees that our enemy is sin and the devil. But are abortionists already our “brothers and sisters in Christ” because they may be redeemable? Of course not!

The Supreme Court on Tuesday blocked key parts of a 2013 law in Texas that had closed all but eight facilities providing abortions in America’s second most-populous state.
In an unsigned order, the justices sided with abortion rights advocates and health care providers in suspending an Oct. 2 ruling by a panel of the New Orleans-based U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals that Texas could immediately apply a rule making abortion clinics statewide spend millions of dollars on hospital-level upgrades.
The court also put on hold a provision of the law only as it applies to clinics in McAllen and El Paso that requires doctors at the facilities to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals. The admitting privileges rule remains in effect elsewhere in Texas.

These misguided souls [abortion industry workers] are our brothers and sisters in Christ, whether you like it or not.
You can call someone a “baby killer” all day long.
Not one of them left because people yelled at them and told them that they were going to hell. – Abby Johnson
Does confrontational preaching at abortion centers work? Does urgent pleading to repent produce true converts to Jesus Christ?
The evidence shows that when we go and stand at abortion mills and preach the Gospel, it is effective. Not only do women turn away from abortion, but some are convicted of their sin and repent. When we picket abortionists’ neighborhoods and places of business, we see quite a number quit the trade of child killing. Reducing the number of abortionists in any region is an effective tactic in turning the tide of child murder. When boldly go into the “highways and byways” with the Good News of salvation, we confront the culture with the reality of sin, death and hell.
