The Harvest is Great

By Angela Wittman

Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few:pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.(Luke 10:2 KJV)

Today was my first day witnessing at Planned Parenthood in St. Louis on a Wednesday afternoon with Mike Kaul. Mike had approximately a half dozen large signs displayed along the sidewalk in front of PP; most were aborted baby signs.

We began witnessing around 1:20 (as pp does not open until 1:30 p.m. on Wednesdays.) I handed out brochures while Mike wrote down license numbers (this is to keep track of how long a woman stays, and we can then kind of know if she was there long enough to abort, or was getting contraception.) At 1:20 p.m. a beautiful young black girl (14 or 15 yrs. old) walked up to the building. She had her Social Studies book with her. I asked her if she was going inside for birth control or a pregnancy test? She said, "A pregnancy test. I think I am pregnant." I then told her about the pregnancy resource center on Lindell Blvd. and that they give free pregnancy tests, and baby items. Her face lit up. She said she wanted to go there, but did not know where it was. So, I asked Mike to drive her there while I stayed and watched the signs. He drove her there, and praise God, they were open. She also told Mike that her friend (15 years old) had already had an abortion, and is pregnant again. She is going to tell her friend to go to the Pregnancy Resource Center, instead of Planned Parenthood.

Then a short time later, two young black women were walking toward the building. I asked them if they were going inside? One woman said, "No, we just want to see your signs." So, I asked them to take some literature for their friends, and they agreed. Mike then began telling them the history of Planned Parenthood and how Margaret Sanger was the founder. He explained that Margaret Sanger formed PP to kill off the black population and poor whites. He then gave them literature on PP's history. One of the women opened the literature and saw an aborted baby. She showed her friend. Her friend then said she wasn't going to kill her baby. She was going to the Pregnancy Resource Center!

I had to leave at 2:25, so I packed up and came home. At 4:00, Mike called to tell me that 2 more women changed their minds after I left. They had both gone into pp while I was there, but one woman reported that after reading the brochures gave her, she changed her mind and walked out of PP. The other woman said she had tried to cover her eyes while driving into the parking lot, but still saw the signs of the aborted babies, and she could not get the images out of her mind and could not go through with the abortion. She is in need of help with finding a safe place to live.

Please contact me if you can help these women.

Four (possibly 5) lives were saved in 3 hours time at Planned Parenthood on the corner of Forest Park & Boyle Ave. this afternoon. Praise God.

Please pray for these women, and for the LORD to make a way for us to find the resources they need... Including Christian homes they can stay in, if homeless. Some of these women have been raped, beaten, and abused all their lives. They need Christian love.
