Orange, California

Two couples said “yes” to life at the 40 Days for Life vigil in Orange!

A man and woman who’d parked in front of Planned Parenthood agreed to talk to a volunteer … who immediately asked a priest who was praying at the vigil to join her.

The mother wanted the abortion, but the father did not. The priest said he had just attended a Rachel’s Vineyard retreat for women hurt by abortion. He told of the pain they had experienced.

He prayed with the couple, offered them a blessing … and begged them to keep the baby. At the end of their discussion, they chose life!

While this was going on, another couple spoke to the volunteers … and they also changed their minds. They, too, were going to keep their baby!
