The sidewalk in front of an abortion center always sees a jumble of emotions ? and that?s evident in a pair of stories from Pittsburgh.

Vigil participants couldn?t help but notice the young man who stood in a doorway near the abortion center ? in tears.

He was trying to remain composed and be strong ? but it was just too difficult. He said his girlfriend was planning to abort his child, and he couldn?t stop her.

?He was tormented with guilt,? said one of the volunteers, ?thinking it was his fault because he recently lost his job. They have no food and will not be able to pay their bills.?

The prayer team tried to console him and offered to take him to an agency that could help him find work. One person even promised to assist with groceries and babysitting.

Volunteers asked him to keep in touch, but they haven?t heard back. They?re asking for continued prayer for this young man and his girlfriend.

This somber scene later brightened considerably when a couple left Planned Parenthood to show volunteers an ultrasound image.

The young woman seemed a bit surprised when the technician asked if she wanted to see the screen ? but understood when she saw the picture.

It was twins!

Seeing that ultrasound image was all it took ? they changed their minds about abortion!
