A second woman walked up to vigil participants to thank them for their witness. She said that a few days earlier, she was driving to the facility to have an abortion. She prayed for a sign to convince her not to go through with it. When she saw the 40 Days for Life prayer team on the sidewalk, she recognized the sign she had prayed for.
With two weeks to go in this 40 Days for Life campaign, we are so far aware of 341 babies saved from abortion! Here are just a few of their stories.
There was a long line waiting to get into the abortion center. As one of the young women waited, she could hear the sung prayer of the 40 Days for Life vigil participants. She said that the song stuck in her head.

After she walked out, she spoke to vigil participants. "She said she really never wanted to see the place again," said Julie, one of the volunteers. "I don't blame her! Thank you to all of you for your continued presence at Planned Parenthood. A life was saved today!"

"We heard a short while later," Ken said, "that they are definitely keeping their baby!"
