40 Days for Life: Beaumont, Texas



A sign in the window of the abortion center in Beaumont announces the staff’s reaction to the 40 Days for Life vigil outside: "Pray against sidewalk bullies."

There are interesting sights on the sidewalk, said Eileen in Beaumont; but certainly no bullies. "A pastor praying with his flock, with hushed murmurs of prayers; a huge banner draped from chair to chair reading 40 Days for Life; heads bowed in reverent contemplation."

There's a cure for the darkness; and it's the light of Christ.
There were no abortions on Thursday, Friday or Saturday
afternoons. "Praise Jesus!" Eileen said. "We prayed for
the abortion facility to close down. It hasn't closed down yet, but no abortions being done is still a hopeful note for all of us to know."
