We always like to start Monday mornings with good news … and on the first Monday of this campaign, there’s actually GREAT news!
So far since last Wednesday when the campaign started, we have reports of 51 babies saved … that we know of!
Here are just a few of the stories of God’s blessings.
A woman driving out of the abortion facility’s parking lot stopped at the sidewalk and rolled down her window and called out to the prayer volunteers. They were too far away to understand what she was saying, so one of the volunteers moved closer to see what message she wanted to share.
She said she’d been forced to come schedule an abortion — although she never explained exactly what she meant, or who was pressuring her. But when she arrived to make the arrangements, she saw 40 Days for Life volunteers in prayer – and that made her realize she could not go through with the abortion.
“She very proudly proclaimed that she was now going to have the baby,” the volunteer said, “and once again thanked me for being out there praying for her. What a beautiful start to our 40 Days for Life!”
Two volunteers were praying while Yassin handed out information outside the abortion center. One young woman took the information, but simply walked inside.
On her way out, however, Yassin had a second chance to talk to her. “This time I gave her a fetal model and I asked her what was going on.”
She said she has a job but no health insurance, and that having a baby would be expensive.
Yassin told her there were ways around financial hardship — there were pro-life clinics that could provide free medical care, and other social services that would help her and her baby.
“She said that she changed her mind,” Yassin said. “She went back inside and got her money back! Thank you, Jesus!”
Karen watched as a car stopped at the driveway as it was leaving the abortion facility. She noticed there were three women inside.
She went to see what was happening … knowing that they had not been inside long enough for an abortion to have taken place.
A woman in the front seat glanced at a companion in the back seat and said, “She did not have the abortion. She was afraid to go through with the procedure.”
A couple from out of town parked down the street from the abortion center and got out of their car. Their path to the facility’s door took them right past the prayer volunteers at the 40 Days for Life vigil.
The couple never made it inside.
After discussing their situation with the volunteers, the young man and woman decided that they would keep their baby … and that they would get married soon. They also set up an appointment the following day at a pro-life clinic.
Said Eileen in Beaumont, “Praise Jesus for this miracle!”
