There’s one thing you can say about praying and fasting for an end to abortion. It works! So far during this 40 Days for Life campaign, we are aware of 213 babies who have been saved from abortion!

Here’s a quick sampling of the 213 stories of mothers who’ve changed their minds.


Mike in Manassas says prayer volunteers watched as a delivery driver pulled over to talk to one of the vigil participants.

“Turns out the delivery man drives by the site numerous times every day,” Mike said. He told a woman who was praying that his girlfriend was pregnant and they had been thinking of aborting the baby.

“He confessed to her that after seeing so many people every day praying and witnessing for life, he knew abortion was no longer a possibility,” said Mike. “Praise God! Please keep him and his girlfriend in your prayers.”


Mary Anne watched as a young couple came out of the abortion center to talk. They kept talking, and the volunteers kept praying.

“They started to walk to the driveway so I said are you both okay and can we help you?” she said. The young woman said, “Yes. I am having some doubts.”

“We talked with them for a good while on the sidewalk,” Mary Anne said. “We cried with them and they are going to keep the baby. Praise Jesus for answering our prayers today!”




Helen tells of a young woman who was planning to have an abortion … who drove past the Leamington vigil and was surprised to see people praying and holding signs that read “pray to end abortion.” As she got closer, she recognized one of the prayer volunteers – a friend’s father.

“It was at that moment she decided against the abortion,” Helen said. “Seeing her dad’s face in the crowd changed her mind.”

“I can do this,” the woman said, after deciding to keep her baby.

“We are giving thanks to God for answering our prayers,” said Helen. “Now if someone says, ‘What if someone recognizes me standing out there?’ we say ‘Great!’”
