Several mothers with their young children attend the 40 Days for Life prayer vigil each week.

?The manager of the abortion facility kept looking out the door to see if the women and their children had left,? said Ernie in Pensacola, ?but the number only grew.?

Several teenagers were there as well. While all the kids were there, volunteers were able to hand resource flyers to every one of the women who entered the abortion center.

?Mothers and their babies are a sign of hope ? a sign of hope on display in front of the American Family Planning abortion facility,? Ernie said. ?May their presence there be the cause of conversion of all, to the truth of the sacredness of life and the maternal bond.?
