"Four saves so far," said Isabel, the local 40 Days for Life leader in Birmingham.

"One mother in particular said she was so happy she had decided to do the right thing."

In another instance, a Birmingham volunteer wrote that while she was praying outside the abortion center, a teenage girl who was about to enter stopped to talk. Following their discussion, the girl agreed to visit a pregnancy care center instead.

"No one else knows I'm pregnant and I didn't know what to do,? she said. "All day yesterday I was walking around town by myself praying that God would give me a sign if He wanted me to keep my baby, but there was no sign."

Without the sign she was seeking, she decided to keep her abortion appointment. "But as I came to the entrance ? I saw that lady holding a cross and I knew that was my sign to keep my baby."

This story is even more miraculous when you consider that this young woman -- who was inspired by the Cross -- was not a Christian.
