There are 471 reasons to celebrate now that this 40 Days for Life campaign has drawn to a close! That’s how many babies have been saved from abortion – that we know of!
Here are more reasons to celebrate – 40 Days for Life locations where abortion centers have closed!
Today’s short video shows the celebration in Jacksonville, North Carolina after an abortion facility that had been in business for decades suddenly announced its closure. Plus … an abortion business in Indiana where numerous 40 Days for Life vigils were held over the years closed its doors just this past Friday!
Jacksonville, North Carolina
The 40 Days for Life volunteers in Jacksonville were ready for another 40 days of prayer and fasting – especially since the owner of the abortion center appeared on local TV to say he was there to stay.
But not long after that, he made a surprise announcement – his business woul
d shut down because of “unforeseen circumstances.”
So a rally that was planned for the sidewalk outside turned into a victory celebration!
South Bend, Indiana
This was the 16th 40 Days for Life vigil outside the Women’s Pavilion in South Bend – and it should be the last.
In the final days of the campaign, it was announced that the business would shut down on March 18 – Day 38 of this campaign. And it did!
This center had been open for more than 30 years … and had been accused of having “little regard for health standards and women’s safety.” Abortions had stopped at this location, but they were still referring women to other centers for abortions.
Three years ago, pro-life groups bought the building next to the abortion facility and housed a chapel and several other pro-life ministries. All of that prayer certainly had an impact.
“It’s a good day,” Shawn Sullivan, the 40 Days for Life director in South Bend told the media. “There won’t be anybody going next door to get abortions anymore.”
