Yes, that painted a pretty powerful picture. Do you know how old this person was?

No, I don't know anything about the person other than what is presented in the article.  A priest I am friendly with had some former students who work in the Capital at Austin and are Faithfully Catholic.  The scene that he described through them was very similar.

I am far too young in my faith to have borne this kind of evil.
I am so grateful for those of you who are strong enough in spirit to face evil.
Before I found grace and Our Lord, I had no faith in the existence of God, but I was always an ardent pro-lifer. My reasons for being so were based entirely upon science, which declares that new life has begun upon conception. Of that, there can be no doubt, neither in the context of religion or science. Science even agrees that this new life is truly human and truly unique.
So, it stands to reason that this new, unique human being is thus deserving of his/her human rights. At the very least, the right to their life.

One of the biggest draws of Catholicism for me was that at no point does the doctrine or beliefs move in contrast to natural law. Had it made some wild claim which would deny the reality of the world, as some denominations that allow for ABC and even abortion and still proclaim themselves to be of god, I would have bypassed Catholicism and most likely the possibility of God existing at all.

She's 22 or so, I'm pretty sure. I went to Hillsdale College with her, but I never asked her age.

Thanks. That tells me all I needed, I was trying to paint a picture in my head based on her description of the ordeal.  Every day from work I look out and see lone college aged gals standing on a busy corner where I work downtown handing out Pro Life material. People do not acknowledge their existence, unless it is to deride them. I go say a few words of encouragement, but not near often enough.
