One of the volunteers was praying outside the abortion center in mid-morning on the first day of the campaign when three cars parked near the building?s side entrance backed out ? and stopped near the vigil participants.

A young man got out of the car and came a few steps toward the people praying and said, ?We?ve decided not to go through with it. I?ve been waiting for my girlfriend to get here, and I just sent her a text message telling her not to come.?

The young woman responded and said she indeed would not be coming to the abortion facility. About 20 minutes later, he came back to tell the volunteers that he had been waiting up at the corner of the street, just in case his girlfriend changed her mind and decided to come anyway.

Thankfully, she never showed up.

?God bless you both,? said the volunteer he?d been talking to. ?You?ve made the right decision.?

He then thanked them ? and drove away. fall2015pensacola2
