Fort Collins is conducting its tenth 40 Days for Life campaign.

Linda, the local coordinator, tells of a mother of three young children who came from out of town to abort her fourth child.

Volunteers offered to help, so she came over to talk. ?One of the sidewalk counselors told her a story from the Bible that brought her to tears,? Linda said, ?and she decided to keep her child. But her needs are great. She is a single mother. Her other children are all under the age of four.?

This is where the community rallied around her. Though the woman lives several hundred miles away, volunteers were able to find someone in her home town to mentor her, and others will check on her weekly. She was also offered supplies and gift cards to help her take care of her family ? and more gift cards have been set aside to assist her in the future.

?This is what a pro-life community does,? Linda said. ?Even when someone comes from far away, the pro-life network can reach out to help her. This we will be happy to do for any mom who chooses life.?
