It was almost like a scene from a movie.

Bob was quietly praying outside the abortion facility in Tallahassee. A young couple drove up ? got out of their car ? began walking towards the door ? but then stopped ? to watch Bob.

After a couple of moments, the couple went inside. But they didn?t stay long. After just a few minutes, the couple came out arguing ? and the man wandered off between two buildings.

Instead of following him, the young woman turned around, got back in her car and drove off ? leaving the guy behind! As she pulled away, she looked at Bob ? and smiled.

?Most of the time, we will not know when people change their mind and decide to keep their baby,? said Toni, the 40 Days for Life coordinator in Tallahassee. ?Don't doubt the power of our presence in prayer; we are interceding for life.?

For some abortion-minded women, all it takes is the sight of people praying quietly ? they?ll keep driving and never go inside the abortion center.
