The 40 Days for Life team in Medellin tells of a couple arriving at the Profamilia abortion center (yes, that means ?pro-family?).

But before they walked in, they stopped at the vigil site to look at the posters and read information about the reality of abortion ? and what goes on at Profamilia. They looked a bit anxious, but still they went inside.

About an hour and a half later, they came out with tears in their eyes ? and thanked the vigil participants for being there.

The woman explained that she had called a service that was supposed to be a women?s help line because she was pregnant and didn?t know what to do.

This service referred her to Profamilia ? even though she wasn?t necessarily looking for an abortion.

When the couple got inside, they met with a counselor who began to pressure them ? saying that abortion is a woman?s right and there was no reason to feel bad about terminating the pregnancy.

But she had just seen the 40 Days for Life posters and literature, and she knew in her heart that this simply wasn?t true.

She chose life ? and thanked the 40 Days for Life participants for their powerful witness.
