Recently we wrote how 40 Days for Life in Little Rock has helped save the lives of unborn children this year.
On Monday our friends at 40 Days for Life told the story about one of the children that was saved.

Little Rock, Arkansas
Two local pregnancy centers joined forces to place a mobile ultrasound in front of Little Rock’s Planned Parenthood facility.
That came in handy when 40 Days for Life volunteers persuaded a young, abortion-bound mom to have a free ultrasound.
“Sure,” she said. “I’m usually running late, but today, I’m early.”
When a vigil participant asked the mom whether she was excited, the frightened mother began to cry because she was terrified to break the news of her pregnancy to her mother.
“The ultrasound showed an amazing eight-week baby,” said campaign co-leader Toni. “She didn’t even bother keeping her appointment at Planned Parenthood.” The expectant mother went home thankful for the support and encouragement and said she felt that the presence of vigil participants was a sign to keep her baby.
40 Days for Life is one of the most powerful pro-life movements in the country.
It isn’t a rally or protest. It’s a peaceful assembly for prayer and reflection — and it really works.
Every year we hear testimonies of lives saved in the wake of a 40 Days for Life prayer campaign.
Praying outside an abortion clinic may not sound like much, but for an unborn child it can literally mean the difference between life and death.
Two mothers have chosen not to have abortions since 40 Days for Life began its spring prayer vigil in Little Rock.

Great news! We’ve had two moms choose life for their babies so far! . . . .
One of the moms from this past Fall who chose life for her baby is due later this Spring. We are planning a baby shower for her. She’s having a girl. As soon as a date and time are put together, we will send that info to all.
40 Days for Life is not a rally or protest. It’s a peaceful assembly for prayer and reflection — and it works.
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. We want Arkansas to be next.
In the past, 40 Days for Life has said that the “no-show” rate for abortion appointments can go to as high as 75% when someone prays in front of an abortion facility.
Something as simple as praying outside an abortion facility can make a huge difference.
