"Thanks for being there!"

Those were the words a woman leaving the American Family Planning abortion center offered the 40 Days for Life vigil participants who were standing in prayer outside.

"She stated that she had changed her mind about aborting her baby," said Ernie, the Pensacola coordinator. She took a pamphlet and the volunteers told her about the help she could find at numerous places in her area.

"It's a powerful reminder why we need to be there in love on the sidewalk over these 40 days and beyond," Ernie said.
