The 40 Days for Life campaign is in full swing not only across the United States, but around the world. And already, main organizer Shawn Carney says the pro-life people who are praying outside abortion clinics are reporting back to him with incredible tales of babies saved from abortion.

In Birmingham, England, pro-life advocates outside abortion clinics there report three babies saved from abortions and one fascinating story of a boyfriend who rushed inside an abortion center to save his unborn child from abortion.

As 40 Days for Life staffer David Brando relates:

Very good news from England … as already the Birmingham team reports three saves so far!

One couple told prayer volunteers they had a one-year-old and were worried they couldn’t cope with another child so soon. “They were going to have an abortion,” Isabel, the local leader said, “but now they had changed their minds.”

Another young couple agreed to go to the pregnancy help center … and they decided to keep their baby.



In the third instance, a young woman was inside the facility while her boyfriend waited outside. The prayer volunteers talked to him, Isabel said, “and he decided to go back inside and get his girlfriend out … and they went off all smiles and waves. God is blessing the hard work and prayers of so many people here!”

As the campaign started, Archbishop Bernard Longley led volunteers in prayer. “He ended with a beautiful blessing which extended to all those who would come and pray there during the 40 days,” Isabel said. “God is blessing the hard work and prayers of so many people here.”

Babies are also being saved in Calgary, Canada:


Steve Karlen, our North American outreach director, helped the team in Calgary kick off their campaign.

“As is the case with many Canadian campaigns,” Steve said, “the situation in Calgary is challenging. Because of a court injunction, the vigil participants are required to stand across the street from the abortion center.”

The volunteers “were delighted to hear how the no-show rate for abortion appointment skyrockets when there are people praying in front of the building.”

This abortion facility is not clearly marked … so it isn’t always clear why there are people praying out on the sidewalks. “Nevertheless,” he said, “the campaign in Calgary knows of at least one baby saved through their efforts, which makes is all worth it for them.
