WRBL-TV, the area?s CBS affiliate, covered the 40 Days for Life kickoff event in Columbus.

?The campaign?s goal is to end abortion,? the station reported.? ?Pro-life supporters across the country will gather outside of abortion clinics for 40 days to pray for everyone involved in the abortion process.

The station interviewed Kelly, who became pregnant when she was a teen and visited three abortion centers.

?When I went to that abortion clinic I needed help and I needed somebody I could talk to.? I didn?t necessarily want an abortion.? I just needed help,? she said. She added that she was grateful for the decision she made to keep her son.

While many of the 307 vigils are held outside Planned Parenthood centers, Columbus is one of the cities where Planned Parenthood doesn?t operate. The vigil there is outside an abortion facility called Columbus Women?s Health Organization.
