The largest 40 Days for Life campaign so far has ended – and here’s a huge thank you for helping save so many lives!
Reports are still coming in … but local 40 Days for Life leaders tell us that as of now, they’re aware of 492 mothers in 375 locations around the world who have rejected abortion and chosen life for their babies!
In many cases, all it took was the simple act of showing up to pray on the sidewalk.
Greensboro, North Carolina
“One day we were praying, just praying – not counseling, but just praying,” said Salvador in Greensboro.
As they prayed, they saw a young woman drive into the abortion center’s parking lot. But a few minutes she parked right in front of the 40 Days for Life vigil participants and got out of her car.
“She told me she needed prayers,” Salvador said. “I asked if she was there for an abortion and she said ‘yes,’ so we stared praying with her.”
After they prayed, the volunteers talked with her about pregnancy resources in the Greensboro area. “I gave her a brochure,” Salvador said, “and she left!”

While Maria was praying at the 40 Days for Life vigil in Winnipeg, she was approached by a smiling woman.
“She said she was against abortion,” Maria said, “but her daughter was in the hospital for an abortion referral. Her daughter had gotten pregnant while in a relationship with an abusive, drug-addicted man.”
Maria asked the mother about adoption, and she replied that she was prepared to raise the child herself. “I assured her of our prayers and she went inside.”
A short time later, the woman came out to tell the volunteers she was bringing her daughter home. The younger woman was rethinking the situation. “The mom was smiling widely,” Maria said. “Praise the Lord!”
