DAY 12: Be a sign of mercy

Many moms turn around and choose life at an abortion facility … but many more do not.

The reality is that your prayerful presence is the last sign of hope for the baby before the abortion …

… and your presence is also the first sign of mercy to the woman after the abortion.

40 Days for Life is a campaign of love and mercy. In fact, typically 25% of all campaigns are led by women who have an abortion in their past.

While the baby’s life is in urgent need of saving, it can’t be forgotten that abortion has lifelong, negative effects on mothers, fathers and extended families.

In this short video Robert Colquhoun, our international campaign director, notes, “You could be the person leading somebody to the very first step of healing through your listening, through your support and through your encouragement.”
