Getting a high-five from a self-proclaimed "pro-choice" guy is not something I expected to happen. I literally wear my position about abortion on my chest. Here I will tell you about the time I got a high-five from a pro-choice guy in the middle of our discussion about abortion. And it happened right in front of a Planned Parenthood abortion facility. I was outside of Planned Parenthood in Harrisburg, standing 20-feet from the entrance. This is what I do every Thursday, telli
As I write this, my friends and I are celebrating that Hillcrest Women’s Medical Center has been closed for more than a week. Who would celebrate that?!

Some from as far away as Delaware. The parking lot was so full that people began to park in the driveway, blocking traffic. [They had to come out and move their cars later.] The weather was freezing. Although it was warmer compared to last week, the wind was coming up off of the river and piercing r
