There’s nothing like starting the week with good news, so here we go! So far during this 40 Days for Life campaign, our local leaders report …
… 87 babies have been spared from abortion – that we know of!
Now that is a wonderful answer to prayer!
Many 40 Days for Life prayer volunteers work closely with nearby pregnancy help centers, where young women can find free medical care and material assistance – a true blessing for so many moms who choose life.
Here’s how God has saved lives through this wonderful partnership!
St. Louis, Missouri
Brian in St. Louis reports three turnarounds on one day.
“And that included one in which a Planned Parenthood security guard was attempting to interfere with sidewalk counseling and another which saw a young, abortion-minded college student cancel her appointment at Planned Parenthood to receive pregnancy help across the street at the Thrive Mobile Medical Unit,” he said.

The operations coordinator there shared her gratitude to all of the 40 Days for Life prayer volunteers who “make turnarounds possible through their powerful presence and encouragement.”
“God continues to shower us daily with new mercies and new victories,” Brian said.
Santa Rosa, California
In Santa Rosa, a woman had just learned she was pregnant … and had serious doubts about having another baby. So she scheduled an abortion at the local Planned Parenthood facility.
But when she arrived at Planned Parenthood, people were praying outside at the 40 Days for Life vigil. She was immediately reminded of the abortion she’d once had … and knew at that moment that she couldn’t go through it again.
One of the volunteers held a sign with the name and phone number of the pregnancy center. So she went there instead of Planned Parenthood … and learned about the spiritual and practical support they are able to offer.
She chose life!
While the 40 Days for Life team was praying and singing, a young couple outside the abortion center in Orlando agonized over whether or not to go through with a scheduled abortion.
As they did, a counselor reached out to them with offers of help. The young couple went into Planned Parenthood briefly, but when they came out, they were all smiles.
As they drove away from Planned Parenthood, they said they were keeping the baby. The counselor could see the relief and joy all over their faces.
Volunteers were pleased that students from the University of Central Florida joined them in prayer at the vigil. “They left before finding out about the saved baby,” said Irene, the local leader, “but no doubt their prayerful presence helped inspire the young couple to make the right choice! Please be a part of this peaceful vigil in defense of our most defenseless brothers and sisters.”
