When a vigil participant in St. Paul approached a woman outside Planned Parenthood, she offered two brochures – including one that’s specifically about the abortion pill.
“I told her to be sure to read the information,” the volunteer said. She also encouraged the woman to visit a nearby pregnancy help center.

As the woman left Planned Parenthood an hour later, she asked how to get to “that place” – meaning the pro-life resource center.
She wasn’t sure Planned Parenthood had been completely truthful with her about the side effects of the abortion pill. They apparently told her there were no side effects.
“She read the brochures while she was waiting and she knew they had lied to her,” the 40 Days for Life participant said. “I told her that she had made the right decision and she would never regret it.”
The young woman nodded her head in agreement … with tears streaming down her face.
“Once again, thank you God!” said the St. Paul volunteer.
San Luis Obispo, California
While several people stood in prayer outside Planned Parenthood in San uis Obispo, a pickup truck parked nearby.
Stickers on the vehicle identified the driver as a Korean War veteran – which proved to be true when a man got out wearing a vest covered with military patches.
“I need to tell you this,” he said. “My mother was 16, unmarried and pregnant. It was really tough; nobody was there for her. She decided to keep the baby, like you’re praying for, right? Well … it was me.”
Driving by the vigil made him think of his mother. “I’m grateful every time I think of her. She kept me. Thanks for what you’re doing!”
With that, he smiled … jumped back into his truck … and drove off.
“We don’t know much about him,” said one of the San Luis Obispo team members. “Of course, we know he fought for his country – for us. He risked his life … and we are grateful. We are grateful, too, that his mother chose life.”
