October 31, 2011 ( – Are you ready for another serving of Monday morning good news? Here it is!

So far during this 40 Days for Life campaign, we now know of …

… 417 babies whose mothers decided to reject abortion!


Here are some of the stories we’ve received from local 40 Days for Life teams.


A woman left smiling as she spoke to those praying in front of the abortion facility. She told them, “I can’t go through with this!” The prayer volunteers all rejoiced in her decision to choose life.

The very next day, said Ernie in Pensacola, three more women changed their minds about abortion. “That’s four witnessed turnarounds! Praise be to God!”

Ernie also reports that a former worker at the abortion facility has now found a new job as a medical assistant. ”Thank you for all your prayers for her,” he said.

“We were with her last evening and she expressed how seeing our peaceful, prayerful presence made all the difference in her life. It is truly beautiful how God uses this simple act to draw hearts and minds to him.”


Maureen in Poughkeepsie tells the story of two women who changed their minds.

In one instance, a woman walked into Planned Parenthood, followed a few minutes later by a man. The man had accepted some pro-life information from prayer volunteers. A short time later, he left the building and got in his car.

A few minutes later, the woman also left the building and got into the car with him. They hugged, then drove away with relieved looks on their faces.

Later, two women drove past Planned Parenthood twice — slowly. The younger woman in the passenger’s seat was crying.

They pulled over and talked briefly, then left. Ten minutes later, they came back. This time, they stopped and went inside. As they walked towards the building, the volunteers offered information and help.

They were inside for only ten minutes before they came back out. They waved to the volunteers, got into their car and left — for good.


A young couple walked out of the abortion center with a handful of paperwork. “They had just found out she was farther than they thought — 17 weeks,” said a 40 Days for Life volunteer. “And after paying $150 for the ultrasound, they didn’t have the $775 to complete the abortion.”

The volunteers mentioned a pro-life center that would do another ultrasound – free – to see if they were told the truth. The couple accepted the offer.

“There’s NO WAY we’re having the abortion now,” the father said, after seeing the ultrasound. “I thought the baby was the size of a quarter from the picture they gave us.”

“We are so joyful to see God’s blessings for our prayerful presence on the sidewalk in front of the abortion facility,” said Mike in Southfield. “This is such a simple plan. We show up and pray in public. God changes hearts, mothers and babies are saved from abortion. What could be easier?”
