40 Days for Life volunteers spoke to a 17-year-old and her mother as they arrived for the teen’s abortion appointment. The girl said she was the youngest of five children and she did not want to disappoint her father.
Tim in Bakersfield said both the girl and her mother seemed to have very hard hearts. Although they listened for several minutes, “they seemed to have no change in their attitude.” But when they were about to walk into the building, someone approached the girl and said, “Don’t be afraid — trust in God.”
When she heard this, tears began rolling down her cheeks. But her mother remained firm.

As the girl’s mother watched the perfectly formed body of her grandchild on the ultrasound screen, “she began to cry,” Tim said. “The baby’s tiny feet and hands were clearly visible on the screen, and the baby even waved at his mother and grandmother!”
