In my last blog post, I talked about the dripping irony that I witnessed as I walked up to the late-term abortion clinic, Family Planning Associates, to interview volunteers of the 40 Days for Life Movement. I was personally moved by the stories of Vanessa Tedesco and Nancy Brady. But, there was someone else who stuck out of the crowd like a sore thumb – that was Mike Stafford.

Mike wasn’t sure if he wanted to interview with me initially. But, as I began to walk away, he stopped me and asked to share his story. He said he had only shared the story once before in his life. Yet ultimately he decided it might help people understand how abortion also impacts men through lost fatherhood.

Here is Mike’s story:

Center for Arizona Policy has long advocated that marriage between one man and one woman is an essential building block of our society.  For more on why marriage should not be redefined, check out my recent interview with Tom Brown on KPXQ here:

Everyone has a story that should be shared.

I went down to the 40 Days for Life rally at Family Planning Associates in Phoenix earlier this week. My hope was to share the stories of those who have been volunteering for the effort. One of the aspects that impacted me most was that, as I walked up to the facility … time seemed to freeze.

I couldn’t help but notice that on one side of the street there was the abortion clinic and directly on the other was a Tutor Time (about 50 feet away) with little toddlers running around on the playground. The toddlers to me were seemingly no different than the ones that the abortion clinic prevents from being born each and every day. That is a moment in time that I’ll never forget.

I will also never forget speaking with the women volunteering outside the clinic for 40 Days for Life. One of those women was Vanessa Tedesco.
