40 Days for Life volunteers outside Planned Parenthood in Sarasota spoke with a woman who said she had prayed that her daughter would not get an abortion ? but still, she accompanied the young woman inside.

When they came out a short time later, however, the daughter was holding an ultrasound image ? telling the vigil participants she had changed her mind about having an abortion.

One week later, another woman who was leaving Planned Parenthood stopped and talked to one of the volunteers, who asked her why she was there.

This woman told a very similar story. She was going to have an abortion ? but changed her mind when she saw the ultrasound image of her baby.
