If you need proof that politicians won't lead the way when it comes to defending life, look no farther than New England, where governors of BOTH major parties tend to support abortion.

New Hampshire has a pro-abortion Republican governor--but that's not stopping grassroots 40 Days for Life participants from cutting into the abortion industry's bottom line.

Beth from the Concord campaign recently tuned in to a pro-abortion webinar where the facility director groveled for donations, even continuing to blame the pandemic for the business's flagging finances.

That director also acknowledged that the number of abortions at her facility is decreasing.

"Fewer abortions means less income," Beth said. "It's a devastating admission."

But it's an admission that simply confirms something pro-lifers have known for years: The abortion industry is in decline even in the Northeast.

The Planned Parenthood Northern New England affiliate closed half a dozen locations in 2022 alone.

That has made the affiliate CEO's position a revolving door unlike anything we've seen since, well, the Planned Parenthood headquarters CEO role!

Ithaca, New York

Ivy League universities have a well-deserved reputation for hostility toward pro-lifers. However, Ithaca, New York, 40 Days for Life leader Becky recently had the opportunity to address a group of college students at Cornell University.

"I had been preparing for a few weeks, re-reading What to Say When, and asked the Holy Spirit to guide what I said," she reported. "He did!!!"

Attendees shared that they had not thought much about abortion. Coming from affluent families, they assumed it would not touch their lives.

One student even reported that she had never heard the pro-life side of the abortion debate before and was grateful to learn about it.

"Hope to see much fruit from this and maybe some volunteers to pray with us!" Becky added.

Cherry Hill, New Jersey

Peg and Terry saw a young woman "practically skipping" as she exited the abortion facility.

Pulling out of the driveway, she rolled down her window to make an announcement to the 40 Days for Life volunteers: "I'm keeping my baby! I'm so happy!"

The beaming mom thanked the vigil participants and assured them that she knows Jesus loves her.

When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple there whom he loved, he said to his mother, "Woman, behold, your son."

--John 19:26

Most loving God, please help the victims of abuse, trafficking, and broken relationships. Provide them with immediate and permanent safety from danger. In your loving arms, heal them from injuries--physical, psychological, and spiritual. Lead them to the best sources of support and healing. Bring comfort to all victims of abuse, and help children conceived in abusive situations to know they are loved by you. Amen.
