The largest spring 40 Days for Life campaign yet is having a HUGE impact. Yesterday, I mentioned the five abortion workers who’ve left their jobs. But while some employees are experiencing conversions, others are getting frustrated.
The abortion industry doesn’t want YOU on the sidewalk — you represent the only REAL choice.
Reports from local leaders make it clear that for those who run the abortion business, there is only one acceptable choice once a woman enters their building. Here’s one sad example.
—————————————————— ORANGE COUNTY, CALIFORNIA ——————————————————
A young man, who was waiting outside Planned Parenthood for his girlfriend, approached the 40 Days for Life prayer vigil. He said his girlfriend was four months pregnant but didn’t want the baby because the pregnancy was the result of rape.
“After talking with us he was very impressed and touched and wanted to get back to his girlfriend to convince her to keep the baby,” said Alejandra in Orange County. “Frustrated, he came out as Planned Parenthood didn’t allow him to have access to her.”
He said that he couldn’t even call her. When they arrived, the Planned Parenthood staff took her phone and gave it to him. “Clearly,” Alejandra said, “Planned Parenthood doesn’t want the women to have any contact with the outside while they are inside having an abortion.”
She said it was a very sad morning, as they later saw the “waste removal” truck entering the Planned Parenthood facility to take away the aborted babies.
—————————————————— RENO, NEVADA ——————————————————
As part of its community outreach, the 40 Days for Life team in Reno hosts a Life Chain to draw attention to both the seriousness of the abortion problem in the area and the local vigil outside the abortion center.
“We had approximately 60 people present, standing on both sides of South Virginia Street,” said Carol Marie in Reno. “We had passing cars and buses give thumbs-up and honks of support — as well as the occasional dissenting passerby. There were participants from at least seven different churches.”
—————————————————— CINCINNATI, OHIO ——————————————————
Theresa in Cincinnati wanted to thank a group of eighth grade students from St. Nicholas in Sunman, Indiana — about 45 miles away – who were able to join the 40 Days for Life vigil.
“Bless them for coming the distance and all who’ve show support from the Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky area during this 40 Days for Life campaign,” she said. “Let us continue to gather in prayer, fasting and community outreach to bring the love of Christ to those in need!”
