?Praise God that a young woman turned away from Planned Parenthood,? said Nikki, the local 40 Days for Life coordinator in Pittsburgh. ?A life may have been saved.?

One of the vigil participants was able to take this young woman from Planned Parenthood?s doorstep to two life-affirming resources centers.

?Please pray for her,? Nikki said. ?She is 9 weeks pregnant and homeless.? She had spent the night in the bus station, as she had nowhere to sleep.

?All afternoon, our sidewalk team scrambled to find a shelter for her, but they were unable,? Nikki said.

One of the volunteers offered a room at her home for the weekend, until a more permanent arrangement could be found ? just another example of the strong commitment of the pro-life community!
