?We are gathering so many stories from people coming over to talk to us outside of the hospital,? said Rose in Glasgow. ?It is very inspiring.?

This vigil takes place outside a brand new hospital that draws traffic from all parts of central Scotland.

?While it true to say that we have had the occasional aggressive comment,? she said, ?we realise that behind such experiences often there is deep pain and so we continue to pray.?

One doctor told Rose that there were many conversations going on inside the hospital about 40 Days for Life. Patients looking out the window often see the volunteers praying in the cold and the rain.

?It rained practically non-stop for a full week,? she said, and people have offered them coffee, food ? and even new umbrellas.

?Without exception, when we explain what the scale of the abortion crisis is in Scotland ? 900 children dying each month ? people are shocked and horrified,? Rose said. ?We ask them to reflect upon this information. It can truthfully be stated that 40 Days for Life in Scotland is helping to raise awareness about abortion.?
