Friends don?t let friends go into abortion facilities ? for any reason!

That was the case when a young couple was dropped off along the sidewalk near the 40 Days for Life prayer volunteers in Hollywood.

One of the vigil participants handed the man a brochure from a life-affirming pregnancy help center. He started looking at the material ? but the woman just headed inside.

The man looked at the volunteers and said, ?She?s in there!?

One of the volunteers looked at him and said, ?Well ? go in there and take her out!?

And he did!

When she came out, she said the staff had already given her a stack of paperwork and she was being prepped for a pregnancy test.

The volunteers knew that if she was pregnant, the abortion facility?s employees would immediately begin pressuring her to have an abortion. They also knew she would be treated much more respectfully at the pregnancy help center that?s just a few blocks away ? and that was the next stop for this young couple.

In the end, her pregnancy test was negative.

But the volunteers? message to young women remained constant: If you want a pregnancy test, we have a much better option for you than ever setting foot in an abortion center!
