Our co-director for 40 Days for Life emailed us the news last night that the county where we have been having a prayer campaign for the last two years has shown a 16.2% drop in abortions. In the whole state the total number of abortions has dropped 4.3% since 2007. And abortions by state residents (yes, we see lots of cars with out-of-state tags driving up) are down by 4.6%.
At our fall campaign site, one of the abortuary workers quit and has gone on to another job in a different field.
Deo gratias! Thank you, Our Lady of Guadalupe, patron of the pro-life movement! Prayer works, friends.
