Sacramento, California

The volunteers at the 40 Days for Life vigil in Sacramento just learned about a blessing that they had no idea God had provided.

A woman pulled up to the vigil participants near the abortion center’s driveway and rolled down the window. One of the people praying offered her some information – but she said she’d been there before and seen the material.

Then she told her story.

Some time ago, she learned she was pregnant – and she was also diagnosed with cancer. When she arrived at the abortion business – the inaccurately-named Women’s Health Specialists – there were people praying outside who offered her information about a life-affirming health center that’s nearby.

Since she already had an appointment at Women’s Health Specialists, she went inside … where she was told she needed to have an abortion right away.

Afterward, she went to the medical practice recommended by the vigil participants. At this clinic, they helped look after her baby, and she was given a reference for cancer treatment.

And now, she told the volunteers, she has a little boy … and she is cancer free. She just stopped by to tell the rest of the story. And now the vigil participants know how God saved two lives!

Would she ever go back to Women’s Health Specialists?

“Oh never ever again!” she laughed. “I wanted to thank all of you for being here and sharing the information that saved my baby and made me well!”
