Aurora, Illinois

One of the 40 Days for Life volunteers met a young woman who’d scheduled an appointment at Planned Parenthood.

“I was able to speak with her a little bit,” the vigil participant said, “and give her pregnancy crisis information.”

When the woman went to her appointment, she saw a man outside the building with his head bowed in prayer. And that’s all it took.

“She chose life!” She is now considering adoption for her child.

“We are so excited,” said Catherine in Aurora. She said her team was feeling a bit weary, “but now we have been blessed with this. Praise God for how he always shows up! We are so blessed to be in the fight for life.”
