?Yesterday I was at my kitchen window when the sirens went by,? said one of the 40 Days for Life volunteers in Mankato.

Along came an ambulance, fire trucks, rescue vehicles ? an entire emergency process.

?It occurred to me that this has always been a signal for me to pray for those in trouble,? she said. ?Mom and Dad taught me this from a young age.?

The volunteer then realized, there will never be any sirens going off for all the aborted babies ? thousands die every day in the name of ?choice,? yet so few people seem to care or notice because it is all legal.

?That's why 40 Days for Life campaigns of prayer are so important,? the Mankato volunteer said. ?We pray outside of abortion facilities. We pray outside of abortion referral centers. We pray so that people will remember the humanity of the unborn again and that maybe, just maybe another woman will feel empowered to choose life for herself and her little one.?
