CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A number of Christians in North Carolina were cited and/or arrested on Saturday as they stood spread apart from each other on the sidewalk outside of an abortion facility that remained open and operating during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. In the midst of the citations and arrests, at least two babies were spared from death and one couple reportedly gave their life to Christ.
“[I]f the [County] and the State are going to view the abortion clinics as essential, we have to be viewed as essential as well,” said Daniel Park with Cities4Life Charlotte in a post on social media. “Had we not been there, they would have gone into that abortion clinic, likely killed their child and carried that regret with them for the rest of their life.”
Cities4Life provides free resources to mothers contemplating abortion, including baby supplies and other goods, and volunteers with the organization assist with the HELP Crisis Pregnancy Center mobile ultrasound unit, which regularly parks outside of A Preferred Women’s Health Center to offer hope and help.
Parks says that four people with Cities4Life were at the abortion facility this morning when they were approached by a major with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.
“[O]ne of the police majors came over to us right away and … he showed up with a chip on his shoulder,” he recalled. “He was obviously ready to make some arrests and write some citations, and he told us, ‘I’m just telling you if there’s more than 10 people, we’re going to disperse you all, and we’re going to be writing citations and all of that.'”Read more here.
