"We finished our third campaign in Mexico," said Lourdes, the local 40 Days for Life leader in the Roma campaign in the Mexico City area, "and we feel blessed."

"We found out about another life saved from abortion," she said.

A guard, who always seemed mad at the vigil participants, walked up to Lourdes and wanted to talk. "He said that a girl entered the abortion facility while her boyfriend stayed outside walking in circles."

Eventually, the young man decided he wanted to go inside and get her out. But the guard would not allow him to enter. "So he called her and the girl got out," Lourdes said, "and they both decideed to not have the abortion. Praise God!"

She said that not only was another life saved ... but the guard's attitude has changed as well. "He is now nice with us!"
