A young woman who was getting ready to abort her baby with her husband's support had an emotional change of heart and walked away from the operating table with her baby intact after Pastor Jeff Durbin and his team from Apologia Church in Tempe, Arizona, convinced the couple to choose life.

Pastor Durbin made the revelation during a 44-minute presentation as the keynote speaker at the 2014 Ignite Conference which was posted to YouTube.

Durbin begins to recount the story shortly after the 34-minute mark in the video where he challenged arguments against witnessing to women at abortion clinics.

"We're told this: 'Don't go to abortion mills. It's too in your face, it's too abrasive. It's too risky, don't do it. It's not the way you reach those women,' " he said.

"And I said, 'But there are babies being dismembered and disemboweled behind those walls. I have to go.' It's not just about going to rescue those babies. It's not about protesting. It's about the Gospel. It's about rescuing their souls and the babies," he noted.

Durbin explained that over the last year, his ministry has saved the lives of more than 30 children who would have been aborted at clinics, such as Planned Parenthood, had it not been for vigilant and steadfast witnessing.

"So we go and over the last year more than 30 babies have been saved from death at abortion mills," he said.

He then invited Tina, the young woman who walked away from the operating table after hearing the Gospel, to join him on stage as a testament to the fruits of witnessing at abortion clinics.

"This is the baby," he said as the audience applauded.

Tina then expressed thanks to the church for helping her save her baby's life.

"We're very, very grateful for them saving our baby's life and opening our eyes; and they've really helped us so much and changed our point of view. If it wasn't for them I wouldn't have my baby," she said tearing up.

"So if you guys can do this and help people, I think it would be great. I mean, they've helped me so much, and opened my eyes and opened my husband's eyes and we are forever grateful," said Tina.

"Without them I would not have my baby. They opened my eyes and gave me this beautiful gift. God is just so wonderful and you guys are all so wonderful for doing this," she added.

Durbin pointed to Tina as she left the stage with her baby and said, "I have an irrefutable argument about bringing the Gospel to hard places despite all the conflict. That's my argument."
