A Letter to Paul Hill from a Mom.
Dear Mr. Hill:
We have never met and I really didn't know whether or not to write to
you, but since your conviction, I felt that I had to say something to
you. The day you shot Dr. Britton, I had an appointment with him for an
abortion. It was a terrible day for me and it was all I could do to get
myself down to the clinic that fateful morning. When I finally got down
there the building was surrounded by crowds of people, police, emergency
vehicles, and there was no way to get in because the whole area was
behind yellow tape.
At first I thought there had been a fire or something but then I
overheard people talking that one of the clinic doctors had been shot.
Something inside me just snapped and I went completely numb, I almost
fainted, and for a time I just stood there staring blankly into space.
The next thing I knew I was running toward my car crying
uncontrollably. I just sat there behind the wheel of my car totally
broken not knowing what I was going to do.
I think that day was the most difficult day of my life. When I saw the
news that night on TV, again all I could do was cry, and I eventually
cried myself to sleep. I received a phone call from a clinic worker the
very next morning advising me that I was to report to the hospital in
Pensacola for reassessment and re-scheduling the following week. I was
still scared and confused so I just said yes to all her questions and
Mr. Hill, I want you to know that I never when through with the
abortion, later on that day I suddenly realized that I just could never
again bring myself to do it. My son was born 7 months later and he is
now 6 years old, his name is Paul. A lot of people have called you a
murderer and I don't know what to think about that, all I know is you
saved my sons life and I think you saved my life too, so I named him
Things have not been easy for us being a single working mom and I'm
reminded daily that I had actually planned to kill my beautiful son. I
feel that I will carry this regret for the rest of my life, but I'm
determined to be the best mom I can be and I pray everyday that God will
forgive me. I don't know if I will ever be able to talk to Paul about
all this, but if God gives me the courage someday I want to be able tell
him about you.
Thank you for my son. Thank you for everything.
Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed:
for in the image of God made he man.
Numbers 35:33 So ye shall not pollute the land wherein ye are:
for blood it defileth the land: and the land cannot be cleansed of the
blood that is shed therein, but by the blood of him that shed it.
