40 Days For Life - Do It For The Little Ones

317 babies have been saved since the beginning of the fall vigil. The total number of babies saved from abortion by the 40 Days for Life vigil has surpassed 3000. Here's the story of just one of them:
If you’ve followed these reports, you may remember reading about Erin, the “wrong number” woman from Indianapolis.

To quickly recap, Erin had scheduled an abortion last spring. She called to confirm her appointment — or so she thought. But she didn’t reach Planned Parenthood. The phone that rang belonged to a 40 Days for Life volunteer who was praying outside the abortion center!

To make a long story short, Erin canceled her abortion and her daughter was born just a few days before this campaign started.

But there’s more!

Prayer volunteers recently met Lori, who had driven four hours from Kentucky for a counseling session — the first step in the abortion process. The vigil participants quickly got in touch with Elizabeth, the pro-life counselor who had helped Erin.

Elizabeth learned that Lori had a small child … and was still suffering from a previous abortion. Lori appreciated the offers of help, but still had doubts about keeping her baby. So Elizabeth called Erin!

“Erin helped Lori to have the courage to trust God and choose life for her unborn baby,” said Eileen in Indianapolis. “Erin was pleased to be able to help someone else.”

Please pray for Erin, Lori and all those who are tempted to “choose” abortion.
In Birmingham, Alabama, twins were saved from abortion. Yes, the 40 Days for Life vigil works; no wonder the pro-abort group in Ottawa wants the city to revoke the vigil's permit and to prevent future vigils using tight "bubble zone" by-laws. They try to portray a peaceful vigil as a noisy protest, claiming that women who want to access the abortion facility on Bank street "have to run the gauntlet of anti-choice activists". But the reality is much simpler:
“These people are no-choice unless it’s their choice,” commented Mary Ellen Douglas, national organizer for Campaign Life Coalition. “They don’t believe in freedom of speech for anybody else, unless it’s their opinion. The people out there praying on the street for an end to abortion have every right to be there.”
The pro-aborts know that their myths about "choice" are powerless against the witness of truth and the wholehearted prayers. That's why they keep resorting to lies, harassment and gag laws.
