With a week to go in this 40 Days for Life campaign, more and more reports of blessings are coming in from 297 vigils in 11 countries.
So far … we are aware of 409 babies whose lives have been spared from abortion! Here’s some good news to start your week.
Coalition for Life - St. Louis update:
After an eventful weekend, we are excited to share with you the amazing news of 5 more turnarounds since Friday morning of last week! A very special story within one of these instances is that of a young woman who's pre-born child was recently diagnosed with a heart defect. The doctors who noted the defect told the woman that it could likely be an indication of Down Syndrome, and encouraged her to go through with an abortion. The woman did not want to have an abortion, however, being uninsured and not knowing where to turn, she asked a relative of hers for help.
God then led this woman and her relative to our LIFEChoice Intern, Brad, last Friday morning as he was sidewalk counseling in front of Planned Parenthood. After sharing their plight with Brad, he directed them to the Thrive Mobile Medical Unit across the street. Later on as they were leaving, Brad called out to them and asked if they had gotten the help they were looking for. They gave Brad a large smile and a "thumb's up" sign before driving away. Simply hearing this story moves my heart with gratitude. What a blessing that Brad was able to be there, to affirm the life of this woman and her child, even when others refused to.
