Baby saved in spite of unjust injunction
A child was saved from abortion Tuesday in Bridgeport, Connecticut, in spite
of new police efforts to restrict pro-life ministry activities outside the
Summit Women's Center abortion mill. Bridgeport police began enforcing an
old injunction last week, even though it was
enacted years ago against a different individual. The injunction prevents
pro-lifers from going within 28 feet of the front door or within 5 feet of
anyone entering. There have never been any acts of violence outside this
abortion chamber, but many acts of violence have been committed against
children and women inside the abortion center.
On Tuesday, a 21 year old Spanish-speaking women was dropped off across
the street from the abortion mill, giving a pro-life counselor
the opportunity to talk to her. After the counselor gave her Spanish
literature and showed her pictures of her baby's development, the woman
decided not to abort her baby.
As the early apostles discovered, no law of man can stand against the spread
of the good news of Jesus Christ.

Abortion mill employee displays aborted baby to save a baby's life
A staff member at the "Orlando Women's Center" abortion chamber helped to save
a child from abortion last Saturday. As the employee provided pre-abortion
counseling to a woman, the employee sensed by the woman's tears that she had
very mixed emotions about aborting her baby. The employee felt compelled
to take unprecedented steps to help this woman.
She took the woman into a back room and showed her the body of an aborted
baby, saying "is this what you want to happen to your child?"
Missionary Patte Smith
stood outside, inviting women to see their
preborn babies by ultrasound.
The woman decided to accept Smith's offer.
She walked out the door, and told Smith "I want to leave this place; I want
to accept your help." Smith took the woman to a mobile pregnancy center in
a nearby van, where she was able to see her little baby: the child she almost
God provides wonderful opportunities to help women and their children
like this, as missionaries obey God by going to the places where children
are being killed. Are you obeying God's call?

Teenager's baby saved in spite of parents' pressure
A 16-year-old pregnant girl planned to abort her baby last Thursday in
Mission Hills, California, because her parents said they didn't want
her to have a baby. The girl brought three friends with her to her abortion
Rose Mary Leon, a pro-life missionary, tried to give the woman pro-life
information from the sidewalk, but her "friends" took it away from her.
She then entered the abortion mill's waiting room.
Later, she came out, asking Rose to help her find a place to stay. Rose
directed her to a local pregnancy counseling center, which contacted several
maternity homes. A pregnancy center volunteer also called the girl's mom
to discuss the situation. The mother agreed to allow her daughter to come
back home, and to help her through the pregnancy.

Florida mother celebrates Mother's Day with "miracle" baby
When 18-year-old Nicole Saia learned that she was pregnant, she gave in to
her boyfriend's demand, going to an abortionist in Gainesville, Florida.
She cried and told a counselor
that she didn't want to abort her baby, but the counselor told the
abortionist to go ahead.
Two days after being injected with an abortion drug,
Nicole hoped that there might
still be some way for her child to survive,
so she told her parents what she had done.
Nicole's mother said "we're going to pray and put you into Jesus'
hands, because this is definitely out of ours." When they called the
abortion mill, they were told that the "embryo" was already dead. However,
a pharmacist told them that the baby might be alive, but deformed.
Eventually, a doctor prescribed a drug to fight
against the abortion drug.
A pregnancy help center provided
emotional support for Nicole throughout her pregnancy.
Yesterday, Nicole celebrated her first Mother's Day with her healthy
newborn baby girl.
The St. Petersburg Times
featured the story of how this child's life was saved from abortion.

Prayer reaches through walls to save a life
A woman who lives in California's Mojave Desert asked a friend to drive
her to Bakersfield on Tuesday. The friend agreed, not realizing that she
was transporting the woman to have her baby aborted.
After the woman entered the abortion mill, her friend stood on the sidewalk
talking to pro-life missionaries. When she realized that the woman must be
aborting her baby, she ran to the waiting room, hoping that she could get her to
change her mind. However, the woman had already been taken in back for the
Although she was distressed that she had missed her opportunity, the friend
continued to pray with the missionaries, asking God to save the child's life.
After about an hour, the woman came out of the killing center, with her child
God had heard the prayers from the sidewalk, and reached inside the walls of
the abortion chamber to save the child's life, sparing the woman from
the pain of abortion.
Can you take the time to pray outside your local abortion chamber? God may
use your prayers to save lives.

Christians in the right place at the right time to save a baby's life
In Bridgeport, Connecticut, yesterday, a 22-year-old hispanic mother went
to the "Summit Women's Center," planning to abort her
her preborn baby. But the abortion mill turned her away when they realized
that she was five months pregnant.
Last September, a woman was permanently injured at the Summit abortion
chamber as they aborted her 20 week baby. Apparently as a result, Summit is
now refusing to abort these older babies.
After leaving the abortion center, the young woman discussed her situation
in Spanish with a pro-life missionary and a priest. The Christians
provided her with information about local agencies offering help to pregnant
women. As the woman cried, the priest and missionary prayed with her. Then
they gave her a pair of baby booties.
The woman gave her phone number to the missionary, and assured
her that she would not go anywhere else to have her baby killed.
This woman may never have entered a local church asking for help. But by
being there, at the place and time when she sought to kill her child, the
ministry of the Church touched this needy woman's life, and helped to save
the life of her precious, living, moving child.
Are you letting God put you in the right place at the right time in your
