The campaign in Mexico City?s Roma area began with a group of more than 50 ? and strong encouragement from a local pastor that they work as missionaries of the Gospel of Life.

Lourdes, the Mexico City leader, said that in spite of cooler-than-usual weather, they continue to stand in front of the Marie Stopes abortion center, ?praying and showing the mercy of God.?

The volunteers have seen a number of couples arrive ? stop for a time right in front of the abortion business ? and leave. ?We hope those will be lives saved from abortion,? she said.

Media reports are accusing the vigil participants of harassment ? which of course is simply not true. Lourdes said it is obvious that the pro-abortion side does not want them outside Marie Stopes. ?They know prayer is powerful.?
