The Birmingham campaign has seen several encouraging signs thus far ? starting on Day 1, when the abortion facility was closed.

Early the next day, vigil participants noticed a woman who was on her way in for an abortion appointment ? crying. They offered her information about other options, but she refused.

A short time later, she came out ? with a medical tag on her wrist.

?She chatted to the counsellor for a long time,? said Isabel in Birmingham, ?and eventually went home without having her scheduled abortion. She needs prayers, please, as she is struggling to look after her 10-month-old.?

Some days later, the team heard of another mother who?d chosen life for her baby. ?Yet again,? Isabel said, ?the couple had their abortion booked but changed their minds at the very last minute.?

With that good news as part of the invitation, she encouraged others to join the vigil. ?Break out of your comfort zone and get involved!?
