There have now been ten coordinated 40 Days for Life campaigns since 2007, mobilizing people of faith and conscience in 440 cities across the United States and Canada, plus cities in Argentina, Armenia, Australia, Belize, Denmark, England, Georgia, Germany, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Poland, Puerto Rico and Spain.During these unified efforts, participants witnessed countless blessings from God:

  • 1,894 individual campaigns have taken place in 440 cities
  • More than 525,000 have joined together in an historic display of unity to pray and fast for an end to abortion
  • More than 15,000 church congregations have participated in the 40 Days for Life campaigns
  • Reports document 5,928 lives that have been spared from abortion — and those are just the ones we know about
  • 69 abortion workers have quit their jobs and walked away from the abortion industry
  • 23 abortion facilities completely shut down following local 40 Days for Life campaigns
  • Hundreds of women and men have been spared from the tragic effects of abortion, including a lifetime of regrets
  • More than 2,100 news stories have been featured in newspapers, magazines, radio shows and TV programs from coast to coast ... and overseas
  • Many people with past abortion experiences have stepped forward to begin post-abortion healing and recovery

After so many years of legalized abortion, many people of faith are experiencing a renewed sense of HOPE! 23 abortion centers close following 40 Days for LifeOn March 1, the Planned Parenthood abortion center in Storm Lake, Iowa shut its doors. Just last fall, this location was the site of a 40 Days for Life vigil, coordinated by Sue Thayer – who once served as manager of that very facility ... until she was fired!With the closure of the Storm Lake Planned Parenthood center – and a second Planned Parenthood location in Knoxville, Iowa that closed the same day, plus an abortion facility in Allentown, Pennsylvania that closed right after the campaign – this now makes 23 abortion centers that have shut down during or following 40 Days for Life campaigns outside their doors.To God be the glory, and congratulations to all the pro-life groups and individuals in these cities whose years of fervent prayers and faithful efforts have been rewarded! Take the leap of faith and get involved with 40 Days for LifeHave you been to pray at a 40 Days for Life vigil yet? You may ask, “What do I do?” or “What sign should I bring?” The answer is simple; the only sign you really need to bring is yourself, for you represent God’s love.
