We start off the final week of this 40 Days for Life campaign with HUGE news!
Since the first coordinated 40 Days for Life campaign in 2007, we have now received cumulative reports of 10,000 babies who are alive today because their mothers rejected abortion and chose life!
To God be the glory … great things He has done!
Watch this beautiful two-minute video to see many of the children who have been saved by the grace of God … and through your prayers and efforts.
A young couple had just left Planned Parenthood when a 40 Days for Life prayer volunteer caught their attention. As they talked, they explained that they didn’t think they could afford another child.
It turns out they couldn’t even afford the $75 Planned Parenthood wanted to charge them for an ultrasound.
That’s when the vigil participant said they could get a free ultrasound at a nearby pregnancy help center. When the center’s director heard this couple was on the way, she dropped everything and headed back to arrange the ultrasound.
All this time, the young man and woman smiled as they read a brochure about the development of the baby – and talked about what they were seeing.
As they left for the pregnancy center, the woman said, “We hope it’s a boy.”
The Houston team tells of a woman who was going to Planned Parenthood to schedule an abortion. But when she got there, the place was closed.
But even though Planned Parenthood was locked up for the day, there was a man praying on the sidewalk. She spoke to him, and he gave her a coupon for free services at the Big Blue Bus – the mobile pregnancy help center that spends many hours every week parked outside the abortion center.
A few days later, she returned and told the counselors on the bus she was there to redeem her coupon. She had changed her mind and chosen life for her unborn child!
“When she saw her baby on the ultrasound,” said one of the volunteers, “she called this man an angel sent from God. If we hadn’t been there with our Big Blue Bus, chances are she would have gone into Planned Parenthood.”

The 40 Days for Life vigil in Sharonville takes place outside a business that stopped doing surgical abortions … but still offers chemical abortions.
“From what we understand,” said Mary Jo in Sharonville, “the cost of this is close to what an early-term surgical abortion costs. The abortion clinic continues to make a lot of money even though it is not doing surgical abortions.”
So the volunteers keep praying … and learning that their prayers are being answered.
A young woman who was entering the abortion center accepted some information from volunteers, but went inside anyway. She left … and returned a few days later. But this time, when she came out, she told the volunteers she had changed her mind and was keeping her baby.
“The weather is getting better,” Mary Jo said. “Please consider coming to pray!”
