When a vigil participant in St. Paul approached a woman outside Planned Parenthood, she offered two brochures ? including one that's specifically about the abortion pill.

?I told her to be sure to read the information,? the volunteer said. She also encouraged the woman to visit a nearby pregnancy help center.

As the woman left Planned Parenthood an hour later, she asked how to get to ?that place? ? meaning the pro-life resource center.

She wasn't sure Planned Parenthood had been completely truthful with her about the side effects of the abortion pill. They apparently told her there were no side effects.

?She read the brochures while she was waiting and she knew they had lied to her,? the 40 Days for Life participant said. ?I told her that she had made the right decision and she would never regret it.?

The young woman nodded her head in agreement ? with tears streaming down her face.

?Once again, thank you God!? said the St. Paul volunteer.
