Karen Styer of Germantown, Md. sits with a pro-life sign after a morning ceremony of prayer vigils and rallies against late-term abortion near "late-term abortion provider" Dr. Leroy Carhart's clinic in Germantown, Md. on Tuesday, August 2, 2011. "Until Dr. Carhart came to town, I was on the edge. But when I heard about how late-term abortions are done, I became pro-life," said Styer. The prayers and rallies are a part of the nine-day pro-life protesting event, Summer of Mercy 2.0. (Pratik Shah/The Washington Times)
