The head of the 40 Days for Life pro-life prayer campaign informs LifeNews.com today that 89 abortion clinics have closed after pro-life advocates have spent weeks praying outside of them.
But that’s not the only good news.
As Shawn Carney and tells LifeNews.com, the largest-ever 40 Days for Life prayer campaign is starting and just a matter of weeks. Already the campaign plans to reach over 375 cities around the world with a prayerful peaceful pro-life presence outside of local abortion facilities.
“Last week, we announced great news about three more Planned Parenthood abortion centers closing their doors. This makes a total of 89 abortion facilities that have shut down permanently following a 40 Days for Life campaign,” he said. “Praise God for these victories! These closures represent the growing trend that the abortion industry is struggling at the local level like never before.”
Carney says the kickoff to the next 40 Days for Life campaign is weeks away and he says the prayer campaign is an excellent way for frustrated pro-life people to take concrete action.

“Just three weeks from tomorrow, we will kick off the largest 40 Days for Life campaign ever in 375 cities,” he said. “There is frustration right now as the struggle to defund Planned Parenthood of their $500 million in taxpayer money continues. That is a fight we will continue to help with. But you can defund Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers — immediately — where you live.”
“When we witness the love and joy of Christ and a mom turns away, we defund the abortion industry. And more than that … we offer hope to a woman and life to her baby who came so close to losing it,” Carney continued. “May God bless you and your family as we prepare for a record-sized campaign from September 27 to November 5.”
