"I loved being there in the evening," said one of the 40 Days for Life volunteers in West Covina.

"There was a type of peace," the vigil participant said. "Maybe because the clinic was closed!"

That evening, emergency vehicles were seen heading to the nearby hospital. It felt good knowing the medical teams were doing their best to save lives "while we were doing the same on the sidewalk."

"The abortion place looks desolate at night," said one of the campaign coordinators, who also offered another great reason to go pray when the abortion center is closed:

"To be out there praying, it gives you the sensation of how it will feel when that place closes for good!"
