“I need to do something!”

The pictures are an immediate call to action. Will you respond?

“Where’s the sign-up sheet?  I need to do something!”  He strode toward the GAP display at Georgia Southern U and asked to sign up for the new pro-life club we are starting.  He had watched abortion videos the night before.  “This is horrible.  I have to do something,” he said resolutely as he wrote down his contact information.  Almost as quickly as he came, he left with a firm determination to do more.

Initially, I was pleased, because I thought him to be a pro-lifer now moved to action.  I imagined that his pro-life commitment had been galvanized by the pictures, much as mine had been years ago.

But it was better than that.

I soon learned that just the day before, he had been a committed pro-abort!  But after seeing GAP and speaking with our staff, the photos weighed heavily on his pro-abortion mind.  He went home and watched an actual abortion online (probably a CBR video).  Now he wanted to join our movement!

The pictures work.  They can change a life forever.  Let us pray that God sustains the zeal in this young man.  Let us pray that God will do a mighty work in his life.
