Orlando, Florida

While the 40 Days for Life team was praying and singing, a young couple outside the abortion center in Orlando agonized over whether or not to go through with a scheduled abortion.

As they did, a counselor reached out to them with offers of help. The young couple went into Planned Parenthood briefly, but when they came out, they were all smiles.

As they drove away from Planned Parenthood, they said they were keeping the baby. The counselor could see the relief and joy all over their faces.

Volunteers were pleased that students from the University of Central Florida joined them in prayer at the vigil. “They left before finding out about the saved baby,” said Irene, the local leader, “but no doubt their prayerful presence helped inspire the young couple to make the right choice! Please be a part of this peaceful vigil in defense of our most defenseless brothers and sisters.”
