Abortion supporters insisted that overturning Roe v. Wade would result in countless women dying in the streets...but nine months later, nobody can find even one woman who has died as a result.

Abortion backers aren't ready to give up the charade. Instead, they're arguing that women who need medical treatment after suffering miscarriages are actually having abortions.

Recently, pro-life reality TV star Jessa Seewald revealed that she underwent a D&C procedure following a miscarriage to prevent further complications. Abortion backers called it a "lifesaving abortion."

On this week's episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we share how to respond to this false, pathetic, hurtful, and even dangerous lie:

Abortion advocates' attack on families who suffer miscarriage is ugly. For a pro-life, compassionate discussion of miscarriage, check out these episodes of the podcast:

Xola, Mexico

A woman arrived for her abortion appointment with her boyfriend...

...but a few moments later, she exited the facility and approached 40 Days for Life vigil participants to thank them for praying for babies--and to ask them to pray for hers.

"They decided to continue with the pregnancy," announced 40 Days for Life director of Latin American campaigns Lourdes Varela.

Glasgow, Scotland

Earlier in the campaign, a woman stopped to pray with 40 Days for Life participants on her way into the hospital to give birth.

The family vowed to return and pray for an end to abortion again, and last week they made good on that promise, as Mom, Dad, baby, and a big brother joined the vigil.

"We gathered around, thrilled to see this little girl," said Rose, the Glasgow leader.

Who is a God like You, pardoning iniquity and passing over the transgressions of the remnant of His heritage? He does not retain His anger forever, because He delights in mercy. He will again have compassion on us; and will subdue our iniquities.

--Micah 7:18-19

Hear our prayer of repentance, Lord, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. We praise you for your tender mercies and your compassion that never fails. Lord, it is only by Your grace that we can live lives that are just, and merciful.

May Your Holy Spirit enable us to walk humbly in Your presence and may You be pleased to restore our nation so that a generation not yet born may praise you.
