Abortion is not legal in Tampico ... and the volunteers there are praying and working hard so it remains that way. ?We have had more people each day,? said Carla, the local leader. They are raising awareness, she said, ?and finally people in Tampico are starting to speak and are willing to defend life.?

They?ve heard about a local woman who was considering abortion (it?s legal only in Mexico City), but has now changed her mind. ?We have several people that have had abortions years ago and they told us they feel they have started to heal.?

On a personal level, Carla said, ?I can tell you my life can be divided before and after 40 Days for Life, I can't even describe what I'm feeling right know. I'm really, really thankful for the opportunity to be doing this.?
