October 12, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Yesterday the 40 Days for Life campaign announced a significant milestone for the burgeoning pro-life initiative – its 3,000th baby saved from abortion since the first 40 Days campaign in the fall of 2007.Jill Stanek reports that the pro-aborts have started a Halloween campaign "don't get tricked, get treated". Obviously, there's always a question about the kind of "treatment" they promote - what it means for the babies - and for the women. But also, the more stories like that we hear, the more it becomes obvious, who is the one that tricks women into making a choice they wouldn't make if they knew the whole truth; whether its the pro-life movement or the pro-aborts.
“To God be the glory for reaching this major milestone!” wrote Shawn Carney of 40 Days in yesterday’s update. “That's a LOT of children and mothers spared from abortion. And that's a lot of GREAT stories.”
Carney shared one such story from an abortion facility in Reno Nevada, where the abortionist has actually installed a sprinkler system aimed directly at the sidewalk where 40 Days participants stand and pray.
Carney relates that at the Reno site recently, “A woman driving out of the abortion center's parking lot stopped to ask one of the local volunteer for her phone number. Shortly after, the volunteer received a text message.”
The woman wrote in the text message that the previous week she had gone to the abortion facility to drop off the payment for an upcoming abortion, at which point she saw the pro-life protesters out front.
“As I was driving away I couldn’t help but think that maybe there was another way. All this week I thought and prayed about it and I realized in my heart what the right thing to do was,” she wrote.
“I can’t help but think, that had you guys not been there that day to remind me that I had another choice, that maybe one more baby would have died today.”
She concluded, “Don’t stop what you’re doing. It matters. It did to me. From the blonde lady in the white SUV who picked up her money instead of aborting her baby today.”
