Today, we are reminded that anyone can change their mind at the last moment before an abortion. And if we face any discomfort in going out to pray outside the abortion center, it’s worth it to give a mom or a dad a chance to choose life.
When they do, we are sometimes surprised. But we must trust that the voice of God will be heard and responded to in that moment. …
COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO
It wasn’t hard to see the excitement in Michele’s note from Colorado Springs: “Another baby saved!!!!” Yes, four exclamations! But that’s always great to hear.
“I have some more amazing news,” she added. “I learned that another baby was saved last Friday. So there were two on the same day!”
All of this is happening at a place where the weather has often been, as Michele put it, “yucky.”
When a group from Immaculate Conception Church was praying outside the abortion center, a couple pulled over near the stop sign and talked to a vigil participant for quite a while.
The conversation went on for a bit, and the couple said they were going in to have an abortion. “The volunteer gave them some information and told them the truth about their baby,” Michele said. The young man then turned to the woman and said, “We can’t do this” – and they left!
Michele noted that the sight of sincere, determined, steadfast Christians standing in prayer in uncomfortable weather often makes abortion-minded women stop and think – and choose life for their babies.
