The Dallas 40 Days for Life campaign has always had a high level of youth participation, often with entire schools coming out to the sidewalk to pray for an end to abortion.

The local leaders in Dallas offered ?a big shout out? to the Highlands School for going out for an hour of prayer at the abortion facility that?s the site of the 40 Days for Life vigil.

There?s more good news from Dallas. On the first day of the campaign, volunteers met a woman who thanked them for being there ? not only on that day, but on the day five years ago that she arrived for an abortion.

She saw people praying on the sidewalk ? but still went inside the abortion center. But it was in the waiting room that God touched her heart and she decided to leave.

Today, she says that choosing life for her son was the best decision she?s ever made.
