(Pro) Life Before Buffer Zones

Guest post by Anne O'Dwyer. Anne is a Melbourne mother and grandmother who has been involved in many areas of pro-life work. In this article, she writes of her experiences at the Croydon abortion facility, where she witnessed faithfully for many years until "safe-access zones" were established in 2016: In 1998 David Grundmann brought his grisly late term abortion business to Croydon Victoria. At the time I was a volunteer with Right to life. Living close to the proposed facility, I was asked to form a small group to pray and offer help to the girls and women entering the facility. I had undertaken training in support of pregnant women and had worked on phone and face to face counselling on a volunteer basis since 1991. However, to actually see these girls and women at the coal face, sometimes accompanied by partners or family, on the point of actually taking this step to end the life they were carrying, had a deep affect.
