?This just in from one of our sidewalk counselors,? said one of the Manhattan volunteers. ?Another life saved!?

Vigil participants struck up a conversation with a man whose girlfriend was inside Planned Parenthood for an abortion. They soon learned she was more than five months into her pregnancy.

One of the volunteers started describing what a late-term abortion is like ? and told him that help is available. She then gave him information about the Sisters of Life ? and he spoke to one of the sisters over the phone.

After that phone call, he went inside Planned Parenthood and convinced his girlfriend to come out!

The two then went to see the sisters to find out about the assistance that they can count on for the remainder of her pregnancy and beyond.

Two people were praying across the street from Planned Parenthood this whole time.

?Please keep praying,? said the Manhattan volunteer. ?Wherever you are, your prayers are saving lives!?
