In Santa Rosa, a woman had just learned she was pregnant ... and had serious doubts about having another baby. So she scheduled an abortion at the local Planned Parenthood facility.

But when she arrived at Planned Parenthood, people were praying outside at the 40 Days for Life vigil. She was immediately reminded of the abortion she'd once had ... and knew at that moment that she couldn't go through it again.

One of the volunteers held a sign with the name and phone number of the pregnancy center. So she went there instead of Planned Parenthood ? and learned about the spiritual and practical support they are able to offer. She chose life!
