Are you ready for another serving of Monday morning good news? Here it is! So far during this 40 Days for Life campaign, we now know of 371 babies whose mothers decided to reject abortion! Here are the stories of two of those babies … their parents … and grandparents.


On a typical Saturday morning, there are around two dozen people praying outside the abortion center in Little Rock. But the volunteers have a new obstacle now.

“Water sprinklers were installed on top of the privacy fence and constantly spray the sidewalk and driveway,” said Mary in Little Rock. That makes it much harder to talk to women entering the building. “We have suggested the sidewalk counselors wear rain gear now,” she said.

The sprinklers can’t stop the prayers. A woman walked through the curtain of water to tell Mary that her 16-year-old daughter would not be getting an abortion. “She hugged the three of us praying and I directed her to the pregnancy care center across the street for help,” Mary said. “Praise God!”

Mary asked the abortion center’s security guard “if he really thought a little water would keep us away. He did not respond.”


A young lady arrived at Planned Parenthood along with her boyfriend and sister. “Although her boyfriend and sister did not support her decision to have the abortion,” said Wendy in Newburgh, “her mother was pressuring her.”



The boyfriend was upset over this decision, but felt he had no say in the matter. “He said that she was nine weeks pregnant and she even had an ultrasound picture of the baby,” she said. “He couldn’t bring himself to look at that picture knowing the fate of his baby.”

The prayer volunteers encouraged him to go inside Planned Parenthood and get his girlfriend out. They told him to not give up on that baby because they certainly refused to do so. As he went inside, they prayed fervently.

Finally, they all came out. “This young man looked like he had the weight of the world lifted off his shoulders,” Wendy said. As he drove off, he smiled and gave a thumbs-up.

“Don’t ever doubt that your prayers and presence make a difference,” said Wendy.
