Thousands of pro-life advocates from around the country can start making preparations for the next 40 Days for Life campaign that will begin this Fall. The new campaign, which builds on successful previous ones that have saved lives from abortion and closed down abortion centers, begins in September.
From September 22 through October 31, pro-life advocates will pray at abortion facilities nationwide and offer help for women considering abortions.
The peaceful, prayerful event has become so popular in the Untied States, pro-life advocates in other nations have taken it up for their own efforts. test
Shawn Carney, the campaign director for 40 Days for Life, emailed previous participants and said the upcoming November elections make the latest campaign especially important.
"With everything that's at stake at this crucial moment in history, let's mobilize the Body of Christ and bring an end to the tragedy of abortion," he said.
He said the interest in the next campaign is very high.
"Hundreds of cities across North America -- and around the globe -- have expressed interest all summer and things are shaping up to be big this fall" Carney said. "Are you ready to see abortion end in your community?"
Carney said average Americans from all walks of life participate in the prayerful pro-life event.
"These are ordinary people with extraordinary faith and courage who were exactly where you are -- praying about what God wanted them to do," he said. "They are from Indiana, Florida, Alabama, New York, Connecticut, California, Louisiana and Canada. They took a leap of faith to lead local 40 Days for Life campaigns."
The Spring 40 Days for Life campaign saw a milestone reached as organizers said they now know of more than 2,500 babies saved from abortion during these campaigns.
"The exact total is currently 2,536. We're aware of numerous sets of twins -- and at least one set of triplets -- included in that count," organizer David Bereit said. "Not only have 2,536 babies been spared from abortion, but the impact was also felt on each of their mothers and fathers."
