Lisa in Grand Rapids tells of a young woman who stopped to speak to a sidewalk counselor at the 40 Days for Life vigil.

?She had a young baby already, no job, an unreliable boyfriend who wanted her to abort ? and felt she had no support system,? Lisa said. It was good news when she skipped her abortion appointment and agreed to go to a nearby pregnancy help center for an ultrasound.

But later that day, she was on the phone with the counselor ? and said that she had rescheduled the abortion for the following day. She still thought abortion was her best option.

?But she clearly couldn't ignore God's voice speaking to her heart,? Lisa said, ?because she contacted the counselor again as she was preparing to leave home for the abortion appointment.?

They talked about the many forms of assistance available for her and her baby. After she was able to consider all of this, she announced, ?I have decided against it!?
