One thing you can say about 40 Days for Life prayer volunteers is that they never give up hope ? even when hope seems lost.

More and more women are being sold "medical" abortions ? the RU-486 pill. Actually ? it?s two pills. One is taken right away and the other is consumed later.

A mother in El Paso took that first pill ? then regretted her decision and wanted to change her mind.

If you haven?t heard about this, it IS possible ? there?s a website called that explains. This young woman contacted a local physician in El Paso who might be able to help.

Several days later ? she had not taken the second pill to complete the abortion ? she went for an ultrasound. This was a crucial time. Frankly, the reversal process is not always successful.

But in this case, she heard her baby's very strong heartbeat.

This is encouraging ? but the volunteers also say it's very important to keep this mom and her baby in prayer during this critical time.

"Praise God for his grace, for our volunteers, for our pregnancy help centers, and for the local doctors who specialize in this amazing reversal procedure!" said one of the local 40 Days for Life leaders.
