Pro-lifer counseled, prayed for abortionist to the very end

21-week babyPro-life activists are often accused of being hateful and judgmental by the other side but a story from Indiana shows their real heart for people, even the abortionist.

For years Ulrich Klopfer operated Women's Pavillion, an abortion clinic in South Bend, where he performed over 30,000 abortions during his career.

Jackie Appleman, who heads Right to Life of Saint Joseph County, says Klopfer was no saint. He eventually lost his medical license due to health code violations and for failing to alert authorities about underage girls who came into the clinic seeking an abortion, which is state law.

According to Appleman, pro-life activist Cindy Robertson often walked the sidewalk outside the clinic even after she befriended the abortionist inside.

“She became friends with him,” Appleman says of Robertson, “and up until the week he passed away, she met with him every single Friday and prayed with him.”

In addition to light-hearted conversations, such as the weather, they also discussed the issue of life. The abortionist insisted life began with a baby’s first breath, but time spent with Robertson changed his mind – some -- to retreat some and suggest life begins when the fetus is viable.

Is that the view of pro-life activists? No, but the abortionist was coming around when he drew his last breath last week thanks to a patient, praying pro-lifer.
