"God is so good to allow us to take part in helping moms choose life for their babies!" said Marilyn, the 40 Days for Life coordinator in Nashville.

Vigil participants saw a woman headed towards Planned Parenthood and offered to help her. As they talked, the volunteers showed her a fetal model and explained that's what her baby looks like at this stage of her pregnancy.

"After she held the model in her hands," Marilyn said, "she started crying."

The volunteers made plans to accompany her to a pregnancy help center for a free ultrasound. "She is happy that she has changed her mind about the abortion."
