Savanna’s Story

Savanna chose life for her unborn baby.Right to Life’s 40 Days for Life campaign has just concluded with huge success stories of lives saved and hearts changed. Volunteers from across the San Joaquin Valley reached thousands of people through this powerful 40 day prayer ministry in front of one of the valley’s busiest abortion facilities—Planned Parenthood Mar Monte of Fresno.

Through this kind and compassionate ministry, Right to Life led supporters in prayer and offered pro-life alternatives to unplanned pregnancy as well as post-abortive healing to young women for twelve hours each day from September 22nd through October 31st. And God answered our prayers!

Savanna* is five months pregnant today, and the mother of two born children both under eight years old. Three weeks ago, Wednesday, she visited the Planned Parenthood in Fresno for her scheduled abortion. She was done having children, and didn’t want to bring anymore into this rough world. But God had other plans…As she walked up the clinic sidewalk she was met by a prayer volunteer from Right to Life’s 40 Days for Life team who shared with her about life in the womb and pro-life alternatives to abortion. The conversation that followed included a prayer with and for Savanna and an offer to help her and her unborn child if should she chooses life.

Moved by the care and support of the volunteers, Savanna agreed to visit the local Pregnancy Care Center, where she not only saw her unborn son through a free ultrasound, but decided to cancel her abortion appointment and instead name the child in her womb—Isaiah!* Since choosing life for Isaiah, Savanna has entered parenting classes at the Pregnancy Care Center and has even started volunteering at Right to Life’s Fresno office. God has used 40 Days for Life to save at least six children like Isaiah this year alone, and countless precious children through your prayers and support of Right to Life’s ministry to the unborn and their mothers.
