“I can’t say that this is the first time that we’ve had a save on opening day,” said Dan in Milwaukee, “but I can’t recall when we ever did.”
During 40 Days for Life, we actually look forward to Mondays! That’s the day we share the great news of lives saved from abortion.
So far, our hard-working local campaign coordinators tell us they know of 26 babies whose moms decided at the last minute to reject abortion and choose life! God has answered your prayers!
And that’s because the abortion center in Milwaukee doesn’t serve clients on Wednesdays – and 40 Days for Life always starts on a Wednesday.
If potential clients show up, the staff will simply schedule an appointment … and send them on their way.
Dan says a woman went to the pregnancy resource center across the street from the abortion facility – and stayed there quite a while. She then walked to the abortion business to compare services.
“Of course,” he said, “there is no comparison. One supports life; the other takes it.”
Before she went into the abortion facility, she kept referring to her baby as “it.” After she came out, she spoke in humanizing terms — “my baby” — and future tense: “this will be my eighth child.”
This especially touched one volunteer, who is the eighth child in her family.
“She had never interacted with anyone before during a campaign,” Dan said, “but she definitely had a LOT to say about the joys of being the eighth child — the baby in the family! It was so touching. I wish I were better at describing the joy that we experienced!”

Sometimes 40 Days for Life can make an impact – and save lives – before the vigil even formally begins. Such was the case at the kickoff rally in York.
Tom, the leader in York, said it was an awesome event.
“Bishop Ronald Gainer of the Catholic Diocese of Harrisburg led us in prayer and passed on words of encouragement,” he said. “We heard powerful testimonies from two post-abortive women and a wonderful family provided moving music.”
After a while, some of the volunteers noticed a young woman sitting by the side of the street – crying. She told them she had been thinking about having an abortion … but after hearing a song about an unborn child, she was overcome by emotion.
It was then, Tom said, that “she decided to change her mind and let her baby be born.”
Keep praying … and join your local vigil today!
