I had the joy of speaking at the 40 Days for Life vigil in Louisville for the first time. Laura is leading a 24-hour-a-day campaign there with her husband Adam.

She says the family ? they have seven kids ? moved so many times during Adam?s military career that he can?t complain about all the energy she puts into 40 Days for Life!

I also met with the leader of the local post abortive healing ministry and a pastor who comes out regularly to pray from 1 to 3 am!

Laura sent a thank-you note after the event. ?Everyone said our 40 Days for Life kickoff was awesome!" she said. "It helped the crowd realize they can do more.?

She also shared the good news that two women had chosen life for their babies.

?One mom came with a man who tried talking her out of the abortion,? she said. ?She has four kids and didn't think she could handle another child since she was in her 40s.?

But this woman went to the pregnancy help center ... right next door to the abortion facility ... and made an appointment for an ultrasound.

It was an ultrasound image that made all the difference in the world to the second mom who rejected abortion. ?It changed her heart,? Laura said. ?She started crying and wanted to leave ... and confirmed that she would give her baby life.?
