That Facebook thing is pretty cool. From it, we received the following message from our friends at the Richmond 40 Days for Life campaign and the Richmond Coalition for Life.

Dear Friends:

The prayers across the world are being felt.  There's something else BIG to report — the FIRST BABY SAVED from abortion during this brand-new campaign!

Two women were praying at a 40 Days for Life vigil in New Jersey — for one of them, it was the first time ever. As they were praying, they saw a woman who had just come out of the clinic and was standing near the door. When the women whowere praying asked if she would take a flyer, she had a simple response: "I didn't do it! I changed my mind." WOW! ...

Thank you for all that you are doing.

If you want to receive those emails (such as about the New Jersey woman) directly, just sign up on the 40 Days for Life website (click here) and Shawn, the national spring campaign director will send them to you.

The Richmond campaign started last night with a Prayer Kickoff Rally at St. Benedict's Catholic Church. 40 Days for Life is a national campaign, held throughout the country, where round-the-clock prayer vigils outside abortion centers are kept for 40 days. If you want to start one in your area, get the necessary information at the national organization's Web site linked above. Oh yeah, about that Facebook thing . . . go to it and learn more about 40 Days for Life (by signing in here) and our own Facebook page, here. Lots of great info at each, including General Assembly video at our site.
