Top 10 International Victories

During the summer of 2010, I felt called to lead a 40 Days for Life campaign in England. I was nervous, apprehensive and sceptical. Several years later, thanks to stepping out in faith, many hundreds of babies have been saved from abortion. 40 Days for Life has now been tried and tested in 30 countries around the world with a clear and proven track record of saving lives from abortion. The inspiring testimonies of 40 Days for Life and its rapid growth around the world should make you ask yourself a question: what would happen in your community if someone started a campaign there? If lives can be saved in all these communities, it can happen where YOU live. Here are 10 top victories around the world: 10. London – Abortion centre closes The Bedford Square BPAS closed its doors for good in 2014, following 3,000 hours of prayer and five 40 Days for Life campaigns. Many women who were scheduled for an abortion chose life for their babies over three years of campaigns in central London. One abortion worker remarked, “Your prayers are obviously working, because the girls aren’t keeping the appointments.” Each campaign, between 6-10 women who were scheduled for an abortion would choose life for their child. 9.

National 40-Day For Life Campaign Makes Progress Against Abortion

The national campaign by pro-life groups across the country to pray at abortion centers for 40 days is making inroads into stopping abortions. As they have done on the local level before, the national campaign has helped numerous women change their minds about abortion, and has helped better organize pro-life groups in various cities. David Bereit, national campaign director for 40 Days for Life, told LifeNews.com about the progress in a statement. “One of the many positive impacts we’re hearing about 40 Days for Life is that the nationwide collection of pro-life vigils is both invigorating veteran pro-lifers and bringing many new participants into pro-life efforts,” he explained. The campaign includes prayer and fasting, and a constant vigil and community outreach that is being conducted simultaneously in more than 80 communities in 33 states. Many of the efforts involve round-the-clock prayer vigils at abortion facilities that will continue through November 4. “People have been waiting for a new, effective way to express their pro-life point of view,” said Bereit. “We’re finding that thousands across the country are embracing this campaign as something that is both new and exciting, but also strong and effective in getting the message out that abortion is an evil that we will not tolerate in our communities, in our nation, in our society,” he said. Bereit told LifeNews.com about some of the specific successes. In Hamilton, New Jersey, 40 Days for Life has moved hundreds of pro-lifers from the sidelines into the field of play. The peaceful prayer vigils are bringing people out to pray who had not come out during protests in Niagara Falls,...
