The Tears of a Nun

Ever since hearing this news about the New York Planned Parenthood clinics splitting away from its mother ship on account of increase-abortion-to-increase-revenue mandates that are part of the bloodstream at Planned Parenthood, I’ve been thinking of the book Unplanned by Abby Johnson. Specifically, I’ve been seeing the image of the Catholic religious sister Johnson and colleagues watched weep outside their Texas abortion clinic Johnson writes about in her book about her own exit from Planned Parenthood. I’ve seen some of the women who sit outside of Planned Parenthood clinics in the northeast, praying so fervently and gracefully … they feel the same pain. Some of them, feel a deep, unbearable wound. The kind of wound only the true love that is the cross of Christ can heal.

Abby wrote about the sister outside the windows and how they all watched from inside.
