He knows of at least seven children saved by their efforts (and helped, if they wish, with free living accommodations, doctor’s care, food, diapers---whatever they need).

John said, “It’s a wonderful way to get people involved in the pro-life movement. It harnesses the power of prayer for the saving of babies from abortion.”

John adds, “The great thing about it is that it brings people right to the very site where babies are killed. That brings home the gravity and reality of the daily activity taking place in these clinics.”

To John’s wife, Tewannah Aman, this issue is personal. She had an abortion when she was 18. She said, “I was pressured into having an abortion. No one ever explained the development of the unborn baby and that there could be risks and complications---that is, the reality of abortion.”

Tewannah notes, “When I stand out there, I talk about the fact that I’ve suffered emotionally and physically as a result of my abortion. I stand in front of the clinic because no one was standing there for me.”

She talks of one woman touched through their efforts just the other week: “I counseled a woman who went into the clinic. She went in there for a pregnancy test. She came out and said, ‘I’m pregnant, but I’m not going to have the procedure.’ Then she drove off.”

In closing, John Aman observes, “We’ve seen women choose life for their unborn children. That is the most important and gratifying thing by far with 40 Days for Life.” In light of at least 8,000 babies saved through this peaceful means, it sounds like a lot of prayers are being answered.
