Worcester, Massachusetts

Lee in Worcester reports their first save of this campaign came on Day 2.

One of the faithful, year-round sidewalk counselors was at her post that morning while 40 Days for Life volunteers prayed nearby. She was able to talk with a young woman arriving at Planned Parenthood for an abortion … and convinced her to go to the pregnancy help center across the street first to talk about her options.

The help center’s experienced counselors took over, found out what factors in her life were leading her to think abortion was her only option, and offered advice about how she could address those factors.

Once they were able to find solutions to several problems, she realized it would be possible to have her baby … and she left smiling.

Lee added that there’s something you can do to help. “Please pray for her that everything goes smoothly from here on out!”
