?What an encouraging day!? said a 40 Days for Life team member in Virginia Beach.

The abortionist didn?t show up at Planned Parenthood ? and a young woman who came for an initial appointment chose life for her baby instead.

A volunteer who usually comes to pray on Fridays was at the vigil on Wednesday, where she met a woman who was on her way to Planned Parenthood for a pre-abortion appointment.

However, she was half an hour late for her appointment, so Planned Parenthood sent her away. The young woman was instead invited to visit the mobile pregnancy resource center ? and she did!

This mother was moved by the fetal model set ? and began to understand that abortion is wrong.

?She's coming back for an ultrasound,? the 40 Days for Life team member said. ?She said she can't wait to see her baby's heart beating. Who is showing up to pray tomorrow? Will you??
