The 40 Days for Life vigil site in Coyoacan is quite an active place. Diana, the local leader, described a schedule that included praise and worship one night ? prayer with a group of seminarians another day ? and plans for a youth vigil with between 200 and 300 teens.

The volunteers already know of lives spared from abortion. They spoke to a young woman in her 20s who walked out of the building, stressed out because she had missed her appointment. Diana asked her if she was OK. She answered, ?I?m alone.?

Diana responded, "Look at all these people here praying for you! The last thing you are, right this moment, is alone. We're here for you."

Diana said that 40 Days for Life helps awaken consciences ? ?and Mexico's conscience needs to be awakened!"
