There are many different aspects of pro-life ministry, with Sidewalk Counseling being one of the most effective. A trained Sidewalk Counselor is able to engage people entering a clinic, especially the women considering an abortion, and engage them in dialogue to insure that they fully understand the consequences of their actions. They are there to minister the love, hope, and healing of Jesus Christ in a very difficult and frightening situation. Often they not only are able to save the child, but minister salvation to the parent or parents as well.
Sidewalk Counseling is not activism or protest; it is being a peaceful, prayerful presence at an abortion facility for the purpose of offering the love and hope of Jesus to people in one of the most difficult of circumstances. It is an opportunity to reach out to them in an effort to provide them with alternatives to abortion, resources, and loving support without judgment.
