DAY 33: When you show up, abortion patients don’t

Former abortion workers report that the no-show rate for abortion appointments can go as high as 75 percent…

…when there is somebody praying in front of an abortion facility.

That means that, while we have confirmed more than 15,000 babies saved from abortion during a 40 Days for Life campaign, the true number is much higher!

A lot of moms who choose life thanks to your presence don’t say anything–at least right away.

Casey brought his girlfriend to the abortion facility in San Fernando Valley, California for an abortion more than three years ago.

Last month, he returned–with his beautiful three-year-old daughter. Holding the little girl in his arms, he tearfully told her, “I would not have you in my arms right now if it weren’t for these people standing here!”

Stories like this happen all the time.

And they remind us why we make the sacrifice to sign up and pray in front of our local abortion businesses.

Lincoln, Nebraska

In Lincoln, a man stopped to show vigil participants a photo of his newborn granddaughter.

Last year, the man’s pregnant daughter went to Planned Parenthood for an abortion.

“That morning, her parents tried several times to reach her as she sat for three hours in the waiting room,” said Matt, the local leader.

Eventually, she decided to take the call and leave Planned Parenthood. “This gentleman credits his granddaughter’s life to our prayers,” Matt reported.

Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

Paul, who leads the campaign in Harrisburg, learned of a woman who came to Planned Parenthood for an abortion years ago.

But when she arrived, volunteers on the sidewalk showed her a fetal model. Instead of going through with her abortion, she went to the local pregnancy resource center. Her daughter is now two years old!

When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him? For You have made him a little lower than the angels, and You have crowned him with glory and honor. — Psalm 8:3-9

Lord, you are the creator of all things. Guide my thoughts to consider your creation in all of its majesty, beauty and holiness. Guide my heart especially to your creation of precious human life. Help me to comprehend how essential life is in your own heart. Teach me to appreciate, love and protect all human life.
