John, the local leader in Forest Park, is a real go-getter. When an abortion center opened there, he decided had to lead a campaign.

Pastor Ed, who has been out praying for decades in front of abortion centers, has also been part of the effort.

They had three apparent turnarounds?not confirmed saves, but they are hopeful. Some of the most active volunteers are post-abortive women.

While I was there, a woman who works with a business located a floor above the abortion center kept coming out to get information and fetal models. Even some city officials in Forest Park have expressed an interest in joining the campaign.

There was even more good news coming in after I got home. One of the Forest Park volunteers got in touch to say another mother had definitely chosen life for her baby!
