Last Friday we wrote about twin unborn babies saved from abortion thanks to pro-life volunteers praying outside the surgical abortion facility in Little Rock.

Yesterday we received even more good news about a mom who is choosing adoption instead of abortion — once again thanks to the prayers and volunteer efforts of Arkansans.

Shawn Carney with 40 Days for Life writes,

Because the abortion facility in Little Rock only does surgical abortions three days per week, they schedule a LOT of appointments on abortion days–more than the parking lot can accommodate.

As an abortion client walked from the overflow parking area, a volunteer named Patricia offered her a free ultrasound at a pregnancy resource center. The mom was interested and asked whether they could help her with adoption.

“She left with an appointment at the pregnancy resource center,” Little Rock leader Toni said. “And SHE NEVER EVEN WENT INTO THE ABORTION FACILITY!”

This is what happens when people come together to pray against abortion and give women with unplanned pregnancies real options besides abortion.

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