40 Day For Life: DAY 34: Call the doctor! I'm keeping my baby!

We now know of 388 babies spared from abortion since September 23--with news from local campaigns continuing to flow in.

After nearly a decade of 40 Days for Life campaigns, College Station, Texas has been abortion-free since 2013.

That hasn't stopped pro-lifers from continuing to host vigils, praying for women in the community tempted to leave town for an abortion.

Even without an abortion facility, the vigil is still saving lives!

As a taxi driver drove a college-aged woman and her parents past the vigil site, the young woman asked, "What's going on? Is this a protest?"

"No, it's prayer to end abortion," the driver responded.

The young woman's parents looked at each other and then at their daughter, who admitted she was scheduled to drive to Houston for an abortion consultation just two days later.

The young mother felt she had her entire life ahead of her and did not want the pressure of being a young parent.

Fortunately, the cab driver was a 40 Days for Life participant. He reframed the conversation, explaining that the life ahead of her would have more joy with the blessing of a baby.

The expectant mother's parents broke down crying, offering to welcome their first grandchild with open arms. By the end of the trip, everybody in the car was in tears as the new mom shouted, "Call the doctor! I'm keeping my baby!"

After dropping off his passengers, the driver returned to the vigil and spent some time in prayer.

Attleboro, Massachusetts

"We have little opportunity to interact with the women," said longtime Attleboro leader Ron. "The clinic is situated in a medical complex [and we've confirmed] a precious few saved babies over the years."

But this fall, Ron and his team learned of three saved babies--in a single day!

"One of the three told Angela, our new co-director, that she saw all the people praying and she knew she couldn’t go through with the abortion," Ron reported. "We will keep praying with continued resolve for an end to abortion at this location."

Chula Vista, California

Steve was praying at the Chula Vista vigil when a woman approached him to ask what he thought about abortion and why.

After conversing and praying together, the woman admitted that she was about to take her daughter to Planned Parenthood for an abortion--but changed her mind!

"Since the Planned Parenthood storefront is in a shopping center, we can never approach it," said Michael, the Chula Vista campaign leader. "It is 60-70 yards from the public sidewalk. We rarely have the opportunity to speak with PP clients, so this is big for us."

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.

—John 1:1-3

O God, may we always be quick to call You Father. And when we call You Father, let Your Spirit remind us that we, and all people, from their beginning to their last day, are Your children. We praise you, Father, that you sent Your Son to reveal to the world that all people are His brothers and sisters, that all people are Your children.

Once a life begins, it should be
protected, cherished, and nurtured
By Maria V. Gallagher, Legislative Director

In his new book Renewing Our Hope, popular preacher Bishop Robert Barron makes note of the “outrageous statement” made in the 1992 U.S. Supreme Court ruling Planned Parenthood v. Casey. That statement, which will live in infamy, says, “At the heart of liberty is the right to define one’s own concept of existence, of meaning, of the universe, of the mystery of human life.”
This nonsensical sentence has governed abortion law in the U.S. for decades. It mis-defines liberty as limitless. For, while we are a nation founded on liberty, we are also bound by laws which are supposed to be handed down for the common good. In addition, the liberty described does not apply to the defenseless human being in her mother’s womb. She is not free to live, but rather can easily succumb to an abortionist’s deadly instruments. READ MORE
