There are two 40 Days for Life vigils in Philadelphia ? and each site got some encouraging news about abortion center clients who were redirected to life-affirming resources.

A prayer volunteer spoke with a young woman at one of the abortion facilities. She had gone there to set up a pregnancy test. But when she went inside to talk to the abortion center?s staff, she was told they only help people who would want an abortion if the test is positive.

?When I called the pregnancy help center,? the team member said, ?they were thrilled to contact her and set her up with an appointment!?

At the other Philadelphia vigil, one of the volunteers was able to speak to a young woman and direct her away from the abortion facility. She, too, ended up at the pregnancy help center. Both the help center?s staff and the young woman have confirmed that she has chosen life for her baby.
