In the first week of this 40 Days for Life campaign, Brian in St. Louis reports four women turned away from Planned Parenthood and were referred to a life-affirming pregnancy resource center.

It wasn?t easy. Planned Parenthood wasn?t about to give up any customers.

A counselor was trying to talk to one of the moms, but a Planned Parenthood employee came rushing up to yell, ?Don?t listen to anything she says!?

That frightened the young woman ? but the counselor stayed calm and explained the free resources that were available at the pregnancy center right across the street.

In the end, she didn?t let the Planned Parenthood worker rattle her. She took up the offer of a free pregnancy test and ultrasound ? and changed her mind about having an abortion.
