A woman outside the Planned Parenthood abortion center told 40 Days for Life participants in Cincinnati that she is pregnant ... and a Christian.

"She'd had an abortion before and said she would never do that again," a volunteer related, "but she didn't know what else to do. So she scheduled an abortion ... and paid the deposit."

But thankfully, she saw people praying at the vigil ... and went back to Planned Parenthood to get her deposit back. The volunteers then walked with her to the pregnancy help center about two blocks away, where she was greeted with open arms and life-affirming options.

Mary, the Cincinnati leader, said that although this woman was aware deep down that abortion was the wrong choice, without 40 Days for Life volunteers present, "she might not have known there was any place that could help her ... and may have rescheduled the abortion."
