There are only two remaining abortion facilities left in Austin, Texas.

One is the Planned Parenthood center where local 40 Days for Life leader Heather Gardner gathered more than 125 people outside for our Austin rally.

One highlight of this rally was meeting a couple who got involved in Austin?s 40 Days for Life campaign to honor their daughter, who lost her life last year. They said she inspired them to follow her example and pray for an end to abortion.

Dr. Haywood Robinson, who serves on the 40 Days for Life board, spoke to the crowd. He talked about redemption ? he once performed abortions, but now offers women life-affirming care at a new medical center housed in the former Planned Parenthood building in College Station, Texas.

In San Antonio, they remember the Alamo ? and they also remember the unborn!

Thanks to God?s answer to your prayers, more than 12,000 babies have been saved from abortion during 40 Days for Life campaigns ? and it sure helps that our local leaders can depend on life-affirming pregnancy resource centers to show mothers they have real options.

Peggy Hartshorn of Heartbeat International told the crowd that you always know when a 40 Days for Life vigil is going on ? because there?s an increase in the number of mothers who visit pregnancy care centers. Your presence is really making a difference!

Houston is home to the largest abortion facility in the western hemisphere -- the 78,000 square-foot Planned Parenthood buidling.

A great crowd came out for a candlelight vigil and was moved by the testimony of a post-abortive woman who shared about how she and her husband went through an abortion -- 42 years ago. They later had three other children. The oldest was at the UNITED rally -- the priest who offered the opening prayer!
