We’ve seen 121 abortion workers have a change of heart and quit their jobs during 40 Days for Life campaigns.
Many of those workers tell us they’d spent years being deceived by the abortion industry … and had deceived themselves about the reality of the work they were doing. They justified it every day. But eventually, your prayerful presence helped them find a way out.
Your presence can also speak to potential workers … and get them away from the abortion business before they ever start.
During a week in which a new Gallup poll showed that Planned Parenthood’s brand is at an all-time low, it seems appropriate to share a story about how a would-be employee turned around at the last moment.
Your prayerful presence represents the last hope for the babies; but it can also be a sign of hope for the workers as well.

In Nashville, Tennessee, as three vigil participants prayed outside Planned Parenthood in Nashville, they watched as a woman drove into the lot and parked. About a minute later, she backed out of her parking space and headed towards the driveway.
One of the volunteers offered her a pamphlet and asked if she was there seeking information about abortion. “No,” she said. “I was going to apply for a job.”
The woman said she was a health care professional. “But I saw the signs and you all praying … I changed my mind. I can’t work here!”
