During the past 40 days, many babies were so close to becoming mere statistics in the eyes of the world. But because of your faith … and willingness to stand vigil as a witness to God’s love for those babies and their mothers … many of those children are alive this Monday morning.
We are still compiling reports … but so far, we know of … 543 babies who have been spared from abortion during this campaign! That makes a total of 10,874 lives saved during 40 Days for Life campaigns … from 2007 until now.
Here are a few of their stories:
We had two babies saved at Planned Parenthood in Richmond,” said Ann, the local coordinator.
“A lady gave me a thumbs-up as she pulled into the Planned Parenthood parking lot,” said one of the volunteers.
“She turned around in their lot and came to me with her window down,” he said. “She said our prayers saved her grandchild – her daughter decided to not abort. She was very emotional with happy tears. Glory be to God!”

Ann said the vigil is continuing to attract more people. One morning, four men showed up to pray – men the “regulars” didn’t recognize. “At least two of them were pastors,” they said. “They prayed without stopping for the whole hour – powerful prayer.”
One prayed, “I had no idea it was like this. I’m sorry Lord, forgive me – I didn’t know.”
“It was such a blessing,” Ann said. “I am so grateful to God. I’m happy to see us finishing strong!”
Las Vegas, Nevada
We definitely had one saved baby last week,” said one of the 40 Days for Life volunteers in Las Vegas.
A couple left the abortion facility parking lot and stopped to talk to vigil participants … who told them about the nearby pregnancy help center where they’d be offered life-affirming options. They spent two hours talking to the counselors there – and never went back to the abortion business.
“One life saved,” the volunteer added, “is certainly worth all the effort!”
A young woman, arriving by bus, stopped to talk to one of the 40 Days for Life prayer volunteers.
She had seen someone outside the abortion center with a sign advertising free pregnancy tests and ultrasounds.
The vigil participant told her those services were available at the pregnancy help center nearby – and he even offered to drive her there! The counselors at the center gave her the information she really needed.
“It was a beautiful thing,” one of the volunteers said. “I cried all the way home. One just never knows what can happen if you stand on the sidewalk and pray!”
