Perth, Australia

“A wonderful turnaround this morning!” said one of the 40 Days for Life team members in Perth.

A couple drove into the driveway … but stopped and opened their window to talk to one of the counselors. The young woman said she was there for an abortion. “She was really quiet and she looked really scared,” the volunteer said.

They took information about free community resources – and went inside the abortion center.

About five minutes later they came out, got in their car, drove off … and didn’t come back!

Another couple had been inside the facility for about an hour. As they were leaving, they walked up to the people praying. The young woman told them, “I’ve changed my mind. I’m keeping my baby. Can I please have a hug?”

“It is imperative that a physical, peaceful and prayerful presence be outside of the abortion clinic,” said one of the Perth campaign leaders. “Imagine if our people weren’t there? Praise God that He uses us to do His will. Peaceful, prayerful presence works!”
