I know you’re eager for some Monday morning good news, so I’ll get straight to it.
So far during this 40 Days for Life campaign … through God’s blessings … 135 babies have been saved from abortion – that we know of!
Here are the stories of three of those babies.
Paul watched as a mom and dad arrived at the abortion center with their teenage daughter. The father was a big guy, “and he looked like he was mad.”
One of the prayer volunteers they walked past held a poster with a picture of a tiny baby in the palm of a hand with the words, “choose life.”
The three went inside the building, but came out about half an hour later. The man walked in Paul’s direction – Paul again thought the man appeared angry, but he soon learned he was mistaken.
The first words out of the man’s mouth were, “We decided not to do it. I saw the sign and it made me change my mind.”
“It was an amazing relief!” Paul said. “Thank you Jesus! The Holy Spirit is working through our prayers! Please continue to pray to end abortion in Tuscaloosa.”
SAN LUIS OBISPO, CALIFORNIA
Wayne says one of the volunteers at the 40 Days for Life vigil in San Luis Obispo approached a woman headed towards Planned Parenthood. As they began to talk, the woman told her story. She had several children, but did not want another baby.
That’s when the volunteer mentioned ultrasound was available at a local pregnancy care center. That was all it took. The young woman called off plans for the abortion. “Are we blessed?” asked Wayne.
LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS
When a prayer volunteer first approached a young couple arriving for an abortion, the woman was quite hostile. But the volunteer didn’t give up. She kept talking – and it paid off.
The young woman said the man who’d driven her to the abortion center was the baby’s father. She didn’t want the abortion, but he was pressuring her. He gave her a handful of cash, then drove away.
“She was 14 weeks pregnant,” said Mary in Little Rock.
The young woman went inside . . . but came back out about 45 minutes later and smiled at the volunteer. She took the money, stuffed it in her pocket – and left.
