Mondays are always good during 40 Days for Life. Monday is the day we update all the reports of babies spared from abortion during your 40 Days for Life vigils.
So let’s start the week with some good news! Thus far during this campaign, we have reports of … 41 babies saved … that we know of!
Lee in Worcester reports their first save of this campaign came on Day 2.
One of the faithful, year-round sidewalk counselors was at her post that morning while 40 Days for Life volunteers prayed nearby. She was able to talk with a young woman arriving at Planned Parenthood for an abortion … and convinced her to go to the pregnancy help center across the street first to talk about her options.
The help center’s experienced counselors took over, found out what factors in her life were leading her to think abortion was her only option, and offered advice about how she could address those factors.
Once they were able to find solutions to several problems, she realized it would be possible to have her baby … and she left smiling.
Lee added that there’s something you can do to help. “Please pray for her that everything goes smoothly from here on out!”
One of the volunteers was praying outside the abortion center in mid-morning on the first day of the campaign when three cars parked near the building’s side entrance backed out … and stopped near the vigil participants.

A young man got out of the car and came a few steps toward the people praying and said, “We’ve decided not to go through with it. I’ve been waiting for my girlfriend to get here, and I just sent her a text message telling her not to come.”
The young woman responded and said she indeed would not be coming to the abortion facility. About 20 minutes later, he came back to tell the volunteers that he had been waiting up at the corner of the street, just in case his girlfriend changed her mind and decided to come anyway.
Thankfully, she never showed up.
“God bless you both,” said the volunteer he’d been talking to. “You’ve made the right decision.”
He then thanked them … and drove away.
On the first day of the campaign, a man approached one of the volunteers in Windsor and said, “I just want to shake your hand!”
He went on to explain that “we were going to have an abortion and when we got here someone was outside with a sign and praying and because of that we decided not to have the abortion.”
He said they saw this vigil participant as a sign that they should not go through with the abortion. According to Laurie in Windsor, “Our volunteer reported that he was elated. Praise the Lord!”
