Families at the 40 Days for Life vigil in El Paso vigil learned that a woman ? mother to four other children ? had scheduled an appointment and paid $450 for the abortion pill.

?Her husband wanted the baby,? said Mark, one of the local leaders, ?so she was planning on telling him that she miscarried.?

After volunteers talked to her, they led her to a pro-life pregnancy help center where she decided to keep her baby.

?This makes six confirmed lives saved in our community,? Mark said, ?all because people just like you showed up on the sidewalk to pray! I am so grateful to God for each one of you who make these local community prayer vigils possible.?
