Abortion clinics across the nation have increasingly been offering discounts for their services on Sundays, partly to counter afternoon church protests by pro-life Christians, the Christian Post reports. Examples of such offers include the Orlando Women's Center in Florida, which advertises discounted abortions with the offer: "LIMITED TIME SPECIAL! PRINT THIS PAGE AND BRING IT IN FOR $50 SAVINGS. ONLY ON SUNDAYS!" Michael Martelli, executive director of Maryland Coalition for Life, says it is not uncommon for abortion clinics to offer discounted abortions or for pro-abortion groups to collect money to fund abortions. He said special Sunday discounts were not coincidental. "I don't think there is any coincidence," he said. "Abortion facilities are facing increasing presence from Christians praying during business hours, and are having to change up their business hours to avoid the attention."
