“Wow, what a snowy and cold start to our 40 Days for Life,” said Ken, one of the local leaders. “Thanks to all who braved the extreme conditions. Your sacrifice and witness for life was amazing and I am glad to tell you it bore fruit. Three babies were saved from abortion right here in Manassas!”
While snow and ice closed many abortion businesses, that wasn’t the case in Manassas. The facility there stayed open – as did another Northern Virginia center where the same abortionist also works. “They are not letting up,” Ken said, “so neither can we!”
He shared the story of one young woman who drove down the road and saw vigil participants praying with their 40 Days for Life signs. She made a U-turn and pulled up in front of the pregnancy help center that’s in the same complex as the abortion business.
“She went in looking for someone to talk to about having an abortion,” Ken said. “According to the counselor who greeted her, she appeared gloomy and sad when she first came in, but after an hour and a half of counseling she walked out very happy and determined to keep her baby. Praise the Lord!”
Ken also tells of two young girls who stopped to talk to one of the prayer volunteers. One of the girls said she’d had an abortion recently. The volunteers gave her information about post-abortion healing resources.
“Let’s keep fighting for these precious babies and their mothers in the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ,” he said.
