Austin is taking part in 40 Days for Life for the 19th time ? pausing at the mid-point of the campaign for a candlelight vigil ?to give thanks for the blessings we've seen ? to be motivated ? and to pray for all of those affected by abortion.?

And those blessings include ?four moms (so far) that had scheduled an abortion but changed their minds and chose life,? said Heather in Austin.

There have been dozens more that have stopped to talk to counselors. Heather noted a common theme from the women they?ve spoken to.

"'It's so expensive here!' is what we keep hearing about the abortion facilities," she said. "Your presence matters!"
