?Even though the sacrifice is great,? said Eileen, the local coordinator in Spring Valley, ?there is great joy in saying yes to God?s will.?

The first week of this 40 Days for Life campaign has been quite cold, but volunteers have gathered to pray each day ? generally standing in the snow ? across from the Planned Parenthood center. There is much at stake here.

Eileen said there has been a steady decline in the number of abortions in Rockland County, where Spring Valley is located. In 2006, the year before 40 Days for Life started, the county recorded 704 abortions. By 2012, that number had been cut in half ... to 351.

Of course, Eileen said, ?one abortion is too many and we have much more work to do. But we are witnessing the direct result of prayer power!?
