Abortion is often accepted blindly ... masked by vague terms such as "a woman's choice" or "safe and legal."

Today, we are reminded of the truth that is hidden behind the slogans. Abortion ends the life of an innocent human being who has no choice in the matter ... and it can therefore never be described as "safe."

But abortion is also not safe for the mother.

During a 40 Days for Life campaign, prayer volunteers outside abortion centers around the world sometimes witness this grim reality. We need to be there -- to pray ... and to offer life-affirming alternatives to women who are told that abortion is ?health care.?

The volunteers praying at the 40 Days for Life vigil in Pensacola were suddenly presented with a reason to pray even harder. An ambulance arrived at the abortion facility, and emergency teams were called to treat a woman there.

Vigil participants say it was an unusually busy day at the abortion business and the parking lot was quite full.

"Abortion hurts women," reads a statement from the Emerald Coast Coalition for Life in Pensacola. "Abortion is not safe. Local pregnancy resource centers provide the best care for mothers in need."

We join the Pensacola team in asking for your prayers for the woman who was taken away in the ambulance.
