A campaign designed to encourage pro-life individuals to turn to prayer and peaceful activism in an effort to push back against abortion has reportedly helped save the lives of 362 unborn babies since the start of last month’s campaign.
The current 40 Days for Life Prayer Campaign started on March 1 and will run through April 9, with Life News reporting on the hundreds of babies’ who have reportedly been saved as a result of the effort.
The new numbers bring the total lives saved through all of 40 Days for Life’s 19 coordinated campaigns to more than 13,000, according to the outlet. The effort mixes prayer with peaceful community outreach and vigils outside abortion clinics nationwide.
Stories are emerging from the current campaign, including one involving a pregnant mother of four who was on her way to Planned Parenthood when she saw two pro-life individuals holding placards with Bible verses on them.
While interacting with these activists she reportedly expressed that she was conflicted about her pregnancy, and admitted she was fearful; the woman said she knew abortion was wrong, but was torn about how to proceed.
But after the pro-life advocates spoke with her about how a nearby pregnancy center would assist her before and after the birth, she reportedly “turned around and walked the other way.”
There are apparently scores of stories just like this one, as the prayer effort, which started in 2007, has reportedly impacted people in 675 cities and 40 countries, with 725,000 individuals and 19,000 churches collectively taking part.
And in addition to the now more than 13,000 babies’ lives saved over the past decade, at least 143 abortion workers are said to have quit their jobs, with 83 abortion facilities closing, though it is not clear what involvement the campaign had in those closures.
According to the 40 Days for Life Prayer Campaign, the last 40-day cycle, which ran from Sept. 28 through Nov. 6, led to 872 lives being saved from abortion and to eight abortion workers leaving their positions. Find out more here.
