Talking to Boyfriends Helps Save Two Unborn Babies From Abortion

God answers prayer. We might not always get to see His hand in action. But there is no doubt that when we pray, He listens. Always!

Here are just a couple of examples.


Viviane said some of the Schenectady prayer volunteers were asking if the vigil in front of Planned Parenthood was making a difference. It didn’t take long for them to get an answer.

A man visited early one morning to talk to vigil participants. The week before, he and his girlfriend had spoken to a woman who showed them fetal models, letting them know exactly what their baby looked like at that point in pregnancy.

After they left, they realized there was no way they could have the abortion. He had returned to thank that woman for helping them make the right decision.

Not long afterward, a woman arrived to tell the volunteers that they’d saved her baby – a child who is now 3 years old.

At the time, she was convinced abortion was the only option. She had two children and was facing jail time on a petty theft conviction. “But when she saw us praying there,” Viviane said, “she changed her mind about the abortion.”

She was allowed out of jail to have the baby, and her cousin took care of the child until she was free.

“We were emotionally overcome,” Viviane said. “God sent us not one, but two confirmations that our prayerful presence alone makes all the difference.”




Elaine, one of the prayer volunteers, spent quite a bit of time speaking with the boyfriend of a young woman who had already gone inside for an abortion. “While the conversation did not appear to be going well at the time,” said Patti, the local coordinator, “a short while later the young woman left the abortion center and they both drove away together. She was definitely NOT inside long enough for an abortion!”

Patti said on a busy Saturday, a volunteer noticed a couple who drove into the parking lot slowly. “They were looking at the signs on the sidewalk,” she said. They stayed in their car talking for about 20 minutes, then drove away.

“Thank You Lord God Almighty,” said Patti, “for your continuous answers to our prayers!” Note: Shawn Carney is the campaign director for the 40 Days for Life pro-life prayer campaign against abortion.
