There's no stronger or more beautiful bond than the relationship between a mother and her baby.

The abortion industry pits mothers against their own children, arguing that giving your baby life is an attack on their bodily autonomy.

Of course, abortion harms both babies and moms--a truth that becomes painfully clear every time an ambulance arrives at an abortion facility to transport a woman to the hospital for lifesaving care. It's an all-too-common situation...and one that reminds us that abortion is violence, not healthcare.

Beth in Manchester, New Hampshire reported that four ambulances appeared at the local Planned Parenthood facility, just in the last seven months.

Unfortunately, Manchester isn't an isolated case. 40 Days for Life leaders from around the world report disturbing scenes of injured women leaving abortion centers in emergency vehicles.

Manhattan, New York

A Catholic bishop was praying at the Manhattan 40 Days for Life vigil recently when an ambulance arrived to the former Margaret Sanger Planned Parenthood. He said the EMS crew was inside the facility for 10-15 minutes before bringing a woman out to the ambulance.

Bogotá, Colombia

Pamela Delgado, the director of 40 Days for Life campaigns in Colombia, reported an ambulance with its siren on taking a "very ill" woman in a wheelchair away from the abortion facility.

"That situation showed us that legal abortion is dangerous!" she said.

Spring Valley, New York

Eileen in Spring Valley exhorted her volunteers to pray for a "young girl" taken away from Planned Parenthood in an ambulance.

"Clearly upsetting," Eileen described the situation. "Emergency responders were was very sad to witness."

Concord, California

Marlene reported that an ambulance arrived to the Concord Planned Parenthood around 2:15 pm and rushed a woman (who appeared healthy when she entered Planned Parenthood) to the hospital.

I beseech you therefore brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.

— Romans 12:1

God Almighty, You alone are worthy of our praise and worship. Having accepted Your Son’s sacrifice on my behalf, I in turn present my body to you as a living sacrifice. I pray that you would use me as your vessel to rescue others who are perishing.
