“We have some really great news!” said Tere, the 40 Days for Life coordinator in Iztapalapa, in the Mexico City area.
“A volunteer from our leadership team, Ines, talked with a girl that was planning to have an abortion,” she said. “Ines has the gift of being able to talk so sweetly, so she was able to approach the couple.”
After talking for a time, Ines asked them for their phone number. And a few days later, she called them to find out what they had decided. “The girl told her that — yes — they were going to have their baby!”
Ines and Sonia, another of the volunteers, also had a chance to talk to the man who worked as the chief security guard at the Marie Stopes abortion center.
That was also a fruitful conversation. He told the two women that he would be requesting a new location … and if his company ordered him to return to Marie Stopes, he could not accept the assignment.
“He had slowly realized that this place is a place of death,” Tere said. “He knew what they were carrying in the black plastic bags when the biological waste truck arrived. God has heard our prayers during this campaign!”
