On July 28, 2017, a group consisting of 150+ Bible believing Christians gathered outside an abortion clinic on the East side of Indianapolis pleading for the lives of unborn children being taken to the slaughter. It was beautiful to see the body of Christ, joined in unison, battling against the wickedness of child sacrifice in our nation. The group was composed of individuals from anti-abortion organizations Hoosiers for Life and Operation Save America. The event was called, “Stand for Life”.
In all, 28 children were still aborted that day despite our efforts to shut the clinic down early. In the past, the clinic has closed their doors early due to the large amount of “protesters” outside, but not on this day. We did confirm, through one of the security guards, that more woman were scheduled for an abortion than 28. Thankfully, some decided to cancel their appointments due to the large presence of Christian witnesses.
Towards the end of the day, 9-year-old Brianna walked up to me and asked if she could use my voice amplification device to speak with the woman through the window of the lobby waiting area inside the abortion clinic. She had asked me two other times before this, but it wasn’t the right timing.
I helped her put on the amplification headphones and speaker and got her set up. Now, this was the second time Brianna and her mother joined us at the clinic. When I first met Brianna back in April, at the first “Stand for Life” rally, I was impressed with her passion and knowledge of what abortion was and what was actually happening in the clinic. And this is what she ended up saying from the abundance of her heart for the next three minutes and 18 seconds:
“I’m a 9-year-old and the voice of your baby right now. Don’t kill me. Save me. Let me live. Let me see the world…Let me grow up so I can worship Jesus and God. That’s what your baby is saying.”
“We can help you. We’re here to help you, today. Don’t abort your baby, please. I’m a 9-year-old and the voice of your baby right now. Don’t kill me.”
“Let me see the world. Let me see what it can bring. Let me grow up so I can worship Jesus. That’s what your baby is saying.”
“There are so many things you can do, like first things … You can have first birthdays, first Christmases, first everything, first day to hug your baby.”
Watch Brianna and her mother’s interview with CBN News below:
“Because it’s little children that are being murdered and killed and they’re alive, they have a heartbeat so they’re humans just like us. It’s just like the only difference is they can’t say now,” she told CBN.
The video was recorded by family friend Amy Schlichter of Hoosiers for Life.
“Briana’s always had a bold personality for her age,” said Schlichter. “I thought it was a bold move for her to pick up that headset, it’s something that I haven’t even done. And so when Briana grabbed it, I knew that she was going to say something. I was very curious to see what she was going to say in her heart and she surprised all of us.”
I am honored to have been just a small part of this amazing event and to have witnessed Brianna’s courage. Her story has since gone viral, with coverage on LifeNews, The Daily Caller, The Activist Mommy, Christian News Network, and Louder With Crowder, among others.
This is the most beautiful pleading I’ve ever witnessed outside an abortion clinic. This video of 9-year-old Brianna pleading with a woman sitting in the lobby area, before her abortion, has reached millions on Facebook and has received over 1.9 million views! I believe that God has and will continue to use this video to change the hearts and minds of abortion minded men and woman, and will use Brianna’s example to draw more Christians to the front lines of the abortion battle, at the clinics!
“If you get an abortion, you can come out and repent. Jesus will forgive you. Just repent,” said Briana. “And don’t do it again.”
And do what you can to stop others from making the same mistake.
