QUOTE FROM ORGANIZER:
"Face the Truth Days work. Every year people stop to thank us for sharing the reality of abortion because it caused them to cancel an abortion appointment begin the healing process from a past abortion. Recently a woman told us she had an abortion twelve years before, believing at that time that she had no choice. She told us, 'I keep looking at your picture, and I can't believe I did that to my baby… nobody told me it was a baby.'" -- Eric Scheidler, Executive Director, Pro-Life Action League.
