Lisa and other 40 Days for Life prayer team members arrived at Planned Parenthood, expecting to see a full parking lot.

?Not today!? she said.

On a typical Thursday, Planned Parenthood is open from 8 to 2 and clients arrive through the day. On this day, one woman walked up to the door ? and it was locked.

She read a sign on the front door and began to make a phone call. A volunteer tried to speak to her, but she returned to her car. An employee opened the door and looked out, but the woman stayed in her can and then drove off.

?Definitely not a typical abortion day in Tempe,? Lisa said. There was a similar slowdown during the 40 Days for Life campaign two years ago, when Planned Parenthood started closing on Mondays. They no longer open at all on Mondays. ?Let us pray that this will be the case for Thursdays.?
