Vigil participants in Austin, Texas, empowered a woman to choose life.

There was just one problem: She'd left her phone inside the abortion facility and had to go back in and get it. Whole Woman's Health would have an opportunity to re-sell the woman the abortion.

Fortunately, our director of campaign advancement and 40 Days for Life 365, Heather Gardner, was on the sidewalk to prep the woman for the abortion industry's pressure sales tactics.

Fifteen minutes passed before the woman came back out--tearfully thanking vigil participants for their support in helping her choose life!

On this week's episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we shared the full story PLUS more of our FAVORITE personal memories of seeing God answer prayers right on the sidewalk:

Tune in for powerful and encouraging stories about:

  • The emotional moment in which Abby Johnson laid roses memorializing the two children she lost to abortion at her former workplace--the now-closed Planned Parenthood in Bryan, Texas;
  • A joyful reunion with a saintly woman who heroically chose life in the face of devastating circumstances;
  • What it felt like to learn that a late-term abortion facility was finished!

More than 24,000 women haven chosen life in response to your prayerful presence (that we know of)...

...which means that if you spend enough time praying in front of your local abortion facility, you'll have great stories to share as well!
