A woman walked up to a couple of the people praying outside the Planned Parenthood abortion center and told an amazing story.

?I just want to tell you that what you're doing is not in vain,? she said.

The 40 Days for Life vigil was in progress when she arrived for her abortion appointment. She?s married and has five children ? the youngest is a one-year-old. Her husband was totally against the abortion ? but she refused to consider calling it off. He eventually gave in ? and accompanied her to Planned Parenthood.

She went on to tell the volunteers that she was being prepped for the abortion ? and the staff had already started an IV. It was at that moment she decided she could not go through with it!

?When the couple was leaving, the husband was all smiles and waving,? said one of the vigil leaders. ?What an uplifting story! Praise the Lord!?
