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.

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.
