At least 289 unborn babies have been saved from abortion over the past month due to a fervent, nationwide prayer effort.
The “40 Days for Life Prayer Campaign,” which started on Sept. 27 and will extend through Nov. 5, is part of an ongoing quest to try and encourage women not to end their pregnancies.
“Ready to start the week with extremely encouraging news?” 40 Days of Life president Shawn Carney wrote in a blog post on Monday. “Here it is! 40 Days for Life campaign leaders tell us that so far this campaign … 289 babies have been spared from abortion – that we know of!”
It really is go time! And on the eve of the start of the largest 40 Days for Life campaign yet … I want to share words of encouragement from two former Planned Parenthood managers in this brand-new video!

In an op-ed for Life News, Carney also shared some of the specific stories coming in from volunteers across the U.S.
In Yuba, California, for instance, two leaders involved with the prayer campaign saved two babies from mothers who had visited Planned Parenthood.
“They were being pressured … feeling distraught … and considering the abortion pill,” Carney wrote. “Thankfully, one of the volunteers was able to provide life-affirming encouragement – giving the women information about fetal development, directing them to a pro-life pregnancy help center and exchanging contact information so they could get back in touch.”
And in Austin, Texas, four moms canceled their scheduled abortions and decided to keep their babies, according to reports.
Two couples left Family Planning Associates, and indicated they were happy and not getting an abortion!
The new numbers bring the total lives saved through all of 40 Days for Life’s plethora of ongoing, coordinated campaigns to more than 13,500.
The effort, which started back in 2007, mixes prayer with peaceful community outreach and vigils outside abortion clinics nationwide.

These campaigns have reportedly impacted people in 715 cities and 44 countries, with 750,000 volunteers taking part.
And in addition to the now more than 13,500 babies’ lives saved over the past decade, at least 156 abortion workers are said to have quit their jobs, with 90 abortion facilities closing, though it is not clear what involvement the campaign had in those closures.
