Bella’s Eduardo Verastegui joins 40 Days for Life
From CNA: Eduardo Verastegui, the Mexican actor who starred in the movie “Bella,” joined pro-life sidewalk counselors and prayerful demonstrators at a Los Angeles abortion clinic on Saturday as he counseled women to turn away from aborting their unborn children.
Many of the demonstrators were present at the Family Planning Associates abortion clinic as part of the 40 Days for Life campaign.
Acording to John Anthony, Coordinator of 40 Days for Life in L.A.:
Verastegui spent time in prayer and counseled and encouraged women to keep their babies, acting with “love, tenderness, humility and compassion.”
“Five babies were saved that morning!” “Prayer and love in action were key and beautifully exemplified by all present.”
From LifeSite News: He (Eduardo) said, “You wanna hear something really, really funny? Here’s what happened at the end. All the nurses from the clinic – some were African Americans, some were Latinas – came outside.”
The next thing Eduardo Verastegui knew, eight nurses wanted someone to take pictures of them with him. Instead, he gave each nurse a Miraculous Medal and his DVD. They didn’t want to watch his DVD, but promised to do so simply because he requested it.
He told them, “I’m going to be here next Saturday and we’ll take a picture next Saturday.” Then the security guard confronted him, asking, “What are you doing here?” Verastegui countered, “What are you doing here, my friend?”
