Facatativa, Colombia

The team in Facatativa shared good news about a woman they met who was 28 weeks pregnant.

She had been abortion-minded for some time, and had gone to Colombia’s capital, Bogota, for an abortion at 20 weeks. Money was the issue then … as later-term abortions are much more expensive.

Eventually, she was referred to the 40 Days for Life volunteers in Facatativa, which is closer to her home. After speaking with the vigil participants, she decided against abortion and chose life for her child.

This woman still has many issues in her life. She said she didn’t know where she was going to live after the baby was born … but the 40 Days for Life team is helping her plan for the future.
