This fall’s 40 Days for Life campaign has come to an end, and we have 475 confirmed reports of babies saved from abortion–with updates continuing to come in!

Despite challenges and obstacles we never could have imagined a year ago, the campaign was a dramatic success. Listen to last week’s episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast to learn of even more blessings!

Bridgeport, Connecticut

A pregnant young woman laid on the operating table of the Bridgeport, Connecticut Planned Parenthood facility.

In just 15 minutes, she would no longer be an expectant mother…but the wounded mother of an aborted baby.

Making his final preparations before killing the woman’s child, the abortionist performed an ultrasound, revealing that the woman was carrying twins.

The mother immediately thought of the 40 Days for Life vigil participants she saw praying for her as she arrived to Planned Parenthood, got off the table, and left the abortion facility!

She never said anything at the time (the spring 2020 campaign) but this fall, she returned to the vigil site to say “thank you” to the peaceful prayer warriors who saved her children’s lives.

“She gave birth two weeks ago to baby girl twins!” reported Lenore, the Bridgeport leader. “She proudly showed a picture of these adorable little girls to us and said she is sure she is not the only one who has changed her mind about abortion because of seeing the prayer vigil. We may never know how many other babies have been saved because of our prayerful witness!”

The Bridgeport Planned Parenthood is tucked away in a medical complex, so it’s hard to connect with abortion-bound women. But the twin baby girls prove that prayer and public witness work–even from a distance.

“What an amazing blessing,” Lenore continued. “And what a blessing that there were volunteers present at the prayer vigil to hear her story and to inspire hope in other women in the same way!”

Lisbon, Portugal

Vigil participants in Lisbon learned that their prayers had saved not one, but TWO sets of twins!

“When she realized on the ultrasound that they were twins, she didn’t have the courage [to go through with the abortion],” reported the Lisbon team, which saved 10 babies in all this campaign!

Schenectady, New York

A woman told Schenectady vigil participants that her friend had recently visited Planned Parenthood to abort twins.

“She revealed to us that…her friend did not go through with making the appointment because people were out there at the clinic praying,” reported Larry from the Schenectady team. “Of course, we were ecstatic!”

The passerby shared that mom and babies are “doing great.”

“Glory and praise to Jesus Christ!” Larry said.

Dallas, Texas

The Dallas 40 Days for Life campaign covered two vigil sites this fall, saving an amazing 33 babies from abortion–including a set of twins!

“We are amazed and blessed at what God is doing!” reported Susan, the Dallas leader.
