My Second Trip to an Abortion Mill

Jonathan Devore, February 8, 2012

I want to first and foremost start off by giving praise and glory to my Lord and savior Jesus Christ. Without Him, I would be lost and bound for hell. But I give thanks to the One who saves sinners like myself and to Him all the praise is due! 

“Not to us, LORD, not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness.” – Psalm 115:1 

On Saturday February 4th 2012 I went out to the “Family Reproductive Health” abortion mill at 700 East Hebron St. in Charlotte, NC. This was my first trip in any capacity to an abortion mill to share the Gospel, pray and talk to people about what they are about to do when they enter through those doors of the abortion mill and try to offer help. 

I was blown away by the amount of people out there on a cold and rainy Saturday morning. We showed up and people were out there on the microphone preaching the Gospel and talking to people as they entered the parking lot to get rid of their “problem”. Ministering at an abortion mill isn’t what I expected at all. I was blown away by the presence of God in and through me and others. When I was out there at the mill, all I wanted to do was be in a constant state of prayer and cry out to God that He would save a baby’s life that day and bring salvation to even one person!  

When I was at the mill and walking back in forth in the rain praying, I remembered something that took place in my life over 10 years ago. I was looking at the mill, looking back at South Boulevard and this place looked very familiar. Over 10 years ago, my girlfriend at the time had got pregnant and we were shocked. I told her that whatever decision she made I would support her. We went to that same abortion mill and got an abortion and literally killed our unborn baby. I couldn’t believe it, I was at the same abortion mill where I allowed my girlfriend to get an abortion, and now I was praying over the unborn babies and the mothers that were about to get an abortion! Unbelievable. 10 years ago, I would have viewed the people out there protesting as being “radical” Christians that are nuts. Now, because Jesus Christ has saved me, I was one of them on the other side of the fence! Praise be to God! I thank the Lord that he has saved my soul even after I allowed the murder of my unborn baby. Praise the Lord that He paid the price and the penalty for my sin on the cross! 

There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.” – Romans 8:1  

After going out to the mill and experiencing it first hand, I can’t wait to get more involved and go back out there. I am even planning on going out again this Saturday morning. Praise the Lord! I want to be a part of this ministry because first and foremost we are ambassadors of Jesus Christ and I want to proclaim the Gospel to others and in turn talk to them about the consequence and danger of abortion and offer help! 

“Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel,  for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.” – Ephesians 6:19-20 

I highly and strongly recommend other followers of Jesus Christ to come out to an abortion mill. It is something that you will never fully understand or see unless you come out and see it firsthand. The Gospel is preached. We offer help to others in need. We pray. We don’t condone what they are doing at an abortion mill, but we also don’t condemn people. We speak truth in love to people that need to hear it. I encourage others to go out and be bold for Christ and see what I experienced firsthand as well!
