Lisbon, Portugal

One of the volunteers at the 40 Days for Life vigil in Lisbon said a young woman left the abortion center and wanted to talk.

She said she was pregnant with her first child … and scheduled for an abortion. She said she knows it isn’t right, but her boyfriend is the one pushing the abortion. The volunteer asked her, “Do you have a doctor?”

“No,” she said. The vigil participant made a quick phone call and set up an appointment with a physician.

After a consultation with the doctor, the young woman had joyful news to share: “The baby is going to be born!”
