John, the 40 Days for Life coordinator in Cleveland, says vigil participants have learned of two mothers who canceled their abortions.

One of them came on Day 1 of this campaign. A volunteer who had been praying at the vigil started a conversation with a young woman who was headed into the Preterm abortion facility.

They talked for a while ? and the woman realized that abortion was the wrong choice. She left with some of the baby gifts that are often provided for mothers who choose life.

A few days later, it was a similar scene, as a volunteer talked with an abortion-minded young couple who eventually chose life for their child. They were offered assistance at one of the area pregnancy centers ? along with encouragement for making the choice for life.
