Abortion is violent, bloody, and barbaric.

The abortion industry must deny science, reason, and God to market and sell its product. It does this by using fear to divorce vulnerable women from their own babies to make abortion seem like a compassionate option.

The victim of sexual assault. The pregnant mom experiencing severe health complications. The woman struggling to pay the rent.

Nobody's off limits.

But the abortion industry's attacks fall flat when you point out that abortion doesn't help women; it harms them--emotionally, spiritually...and physically.

That reality becomes all too apparent when emergency personnel arrive to take a woman away from the abortion facility.

"A big firetruck arrived at Planned Parenthood, and the firemen went inside," reported Wynette, a longtime 40 Days for Life leader in Sacramento, California.

"Soon, an ambulance and paramedics arrived. A young woman was placed on the transport stretcher and taken away...I could see a page of ultrasound images on a clipboard held by one of the paramedics."

Vigil participants don't know what happened or how the woman is faring, but the incident makes it abundantly clear that abortion is NOT healthcare.

Less than two full weeks into this 40 Days for Life campaign, vigil participants have reported NUMEROUS ambulances showing up at abortion facilities.

Please pray for all the moms and babies endangered by abortion.

Downey, California

Downstate from Sacramento, Craig reported multiple emergency vehicles arrived at the Downey abortion facility to retrieve a young woman.

The Downey team has helped spare numerous women from the potential for a botched abortion as they've saved 10 babies already this campaign!

Forest Park, Georgia

Vigil participants in Forest Park didn't even get through Day 1 of the vigil before they witnessed an ambulance leaving the local abortion facility.

Phoenix, Arizona

"Just as I was leaving Saturday, a firetruck and an ambulance arrived to take a young woman to the hospital," reported Rita in Phoenix. "Please pray for her!"

Atlanta, Georgia

"Ambulance just arrived at [the] abortion clinic," wrote the Atlanta 40 Days for Life team. "Please pray!"

Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial, for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life, which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.

— James 1:12

Lord, grant us the grace to be instruments of conversion of hearts to remove the spiritual blindness in the world and recognise all children as a beautiful gift of your Most Holy Divine Providence.

May we be converted ourselves and persevere each day and draw closer to your Most Merciful Heart, so that we can touch others and show them your Infinite Goodness.

We know that you will bring a greater good out of this evil of abortion. Did you not bring the greatest good ever, the Resurrection, from the greatest evil ever perpetrated by man, crucifying you on the "Tree of Life"? Amen.
