Last week I showed you pictures of the 40 Days for Life vigil in Reno, Nevada — where the abortionist uses a sprinkler system to soak the people praying outside his fence. Despite this aggressive hostility, we just received an incredible report from that location.
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.
This text sums up what 40 Days for Life is about — and the impact a local vigil can have. Here is the exact text message:
I just wanted to send you guys a text to let you know that what you do out there does make a difference.
When I went to that abortion clinic last week to drop off my money to terminate my pregnancy, I saw people standing out there with signs. I didn’t expect to see that and part of me felt ashamed.
I drove through the gates anyway and went inside, gave them my money and made an appointment for 2:30pm today.
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.
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.
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.
Wow, indeed! 40 Days for Life has saved more than 3,000 babies since they started back in 2007.
That's three thousand women who courageously choose life, and three thousand people who would be dead today if they had not.
It's an amazing thing to think about, and to realize. May God be praised for these women, for the volunteers and prayerful people who helped them choose life, and for all who help promote a culture of life.
And let's pray today for women who are planning to kill their unborn children. Let's pray for them to choose life for their babies, too.
