He described his grief this way "I wasn't in the room; I wasn't even in the clinic that day. But in my mind, I've been there a million times since. I've been there watching, mourning ... in my mind I need to be a hero not a killer, the man who didn't flee. But I'm not, I am the man I fear to be." Don't be afraid to speak out against abortion. Don't live with regrets. "'... Think About These 00hings " by Rev. Wilfred C.
