Yesterday Shawn Carney with 40 Days for Life shared some heartwarming news about twin unborn babies who were saved from abortion thanks to the prayers and work of volunteers outside Little Rock’s surgical abortion facility.

Shawn writes,

Toni in Little Rock sent a desperate email pleading for prayer.

“A lady that is 17 weeks pregnant with twins came today for her ultrasound appointment [at the abortion facility],” Toni wrote. “She DOES NOT want the abortion, but she feels that she has no support. Please pray for her.”

Those prayers were answered as the mother chose life.

“She will be moving back in with her mom soon, and we are going to follow her to see that she has the things she needs,” Toni said. “We will also throw her a baby shower when her time for delivery draws near.”

This is what we mean when we say 40 Days for Life is a great way to help end abortion.

Every year we hear stories from other states of abortion clinics shut down and abortion workers coming to Christ in the wake of a 40 Days for Life prayer campaign. This is another one of those amazing stories, and it happened right here in Arkansas!
