You're right, it's an interesting site. Some of the pictures brought tears to my eyes.

Every ounce of my being is against abortion; however, I have to wonder if their intent is being obstructed by the message this site is sending, and if their efforts would be best served by utilizing some other method than this.

I've tried, as best I can, to put myself in the position of the people who were photographed. There were a few pictures of people, smiling, wearing signs that said "Planned Parenthood Escorts". Since in their opinion they're doing nothing wrong, they're not going to mind having their pictures plastered all over the internet. Then we have those who are there for abortions, or those who are considering abortion who just happened to find this site from the comfort of their own homes. What message are they getting from this? I wonder. It's as if the people behind the cameras are saying "We love you now, but if you don't see it our way and go ahead with your abortion we're going to put your picture on the internet." That might deter some, perhaps out of fear. Sure, a life saved is a life saved, but if fear is the motivating factor, fear is what they'll take with them, not the love of Jesus, not the Word of God. Fear is a reaction to something, so if their lives are based on actions that are reactions, then they've learned (basically) nothing and they very well could find themselves in that predicament in the future.

Just my few thoughts on the matter. As I said, and I think I've made it clear anyway, I'm adamantly opposed to abortion. I wonder about any real, lasting, impact that this site might have,though, other than to drive more people's a loaded situation, isn't it?

God bless,
