Memphis, Tennessee

“We just saved a baby!” exclaimed Kathy, the 40 Days for Life leader in Memphis.

A woman approaching the abortion center actually asked the volunteers to pray that her abortion would go well! Obviously, Kathy and the vigil participants prayed that she would not have the abortion at all … but still, the young woman went inside.

An hour later, she came out. “I could not do it!” she told Kathy. “I did not have the abortion.”

“We hugged, we prayed, we exchanged phone numbers,” Kathy said. “I told her I would find help for her.”

The Memphis campaign got off to a huge start with the best-attended kickoff event they’ve ever had — and Memphis has been part of 40 Days for Life since 2008.
