Progressive governors' plans to turn their states into abortion sanctuaries aren't turning out as the abortion industry had hoped.

Even with dramatically liberalized abortion laws designed to lure women from pro-life states, evidence is mounting that the push to establish these abortion utopias isn’t working.

The abortion industry is floundering...even in blue states!

On this week's episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we take a look at the surprising progressive communities that haven't embraced abortion:

Albuquerque, New Mexico

New Mexico's abortion laws are among the most brutal in the world, rivaling human rights wastelands like China and...North Korea.

The good news is that the "Land of Enchantment" is home to EIGHT 40 Days for Life campaigns this Lent--and they are saving babies!

When a woman being pressured to abort pulled into the parking lot of one of the Southwest's most notorious abortion facilities, Christina greeted her--and offered her a way out.

"Hey there! I love you and I am here for you!" she said.

That's all it took to save a life! The abortion-bound woman approached vigil participants and received a "mommy hope bag" as well as information about the local pregnancy center.

"I don't want to have the abortion," the mother told Christina. "I choose life!"

Rockford, Illinois

Rockford reported America's first saved baby of this spring's campaign, and God continues to answer the team's prayers.

More than 30 pro-lifers joined the vigil on Saturday, praying, singing, and asking forgiveness for the sin of abortion.

While Saturday is typically the abortion facility's busiest day, the parking lot remained empty all morning.

"Even though the abortion facility was open, not one mother went in," reported campaign leader Kevin.

They came bringing to him a paralytic carried by four men. Unable to get near Jesus because of the crowd, they opened up the roof above him. After they had broken through, they let down the mat on which the paralytic was lying. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, "Child, your sins are forgiven."

--Mark 2:3-5

Lord, your love is always the same and somehow always new. Your love is creative. Guide my steps, prompt my conversations, and help me to know how to reach expectant mothers contemplating an abortion. Help me to believe that you can and will work miracles through my faith.
