"We just had a save!" was the good news from one of the 40 Days for Life volunteers in Austin.

While vigil participants were praying in front of the abortion center, a woman arrived and went inside. After she'd been there for about an hour, she came back out and left in a taxi.

But as they reached the end of the driveway, the taxi stopped and the woman rolled down the window.

The volunteers were about to ask her which brochure she needed, but she stopped them short. "Just give them all to me," she said. "I've decided I'm not going to go through the abortion!"

What made the difference? Well, she had seen the people praying ? and one in person in particular had caught her eye.

The young woman told them, "Your prayers are working!"
