Wednesday, February 13th 2013, marked the beginning of the 2013 40 Days for life Campaign. In case you haven’t heard of this tremendous event, I will give you a quick run down.  40 Days for Life began in 2004, in one town in Texas. It was a simple concept founded on a mission of compassion: Using the biblical number of 40, pro-lifers would gather for 40 days to pray outside of abortion clinics for lives to be saved and changed.

That was then. Now, 40 Days for Life is not only country-wide, but it is global! With a total of 261 locations, 40 Days for Life has massively expanded which is a visible example of the love pro-lifers have not only for babies but for their mothers as well.

Abby Johnson is currently a popular pro-life speaker and writer. But she wasn’t always a passionate pro-lifer. Johnson at one point was the Planned Parenthood Employee of the year. But after 5 years of witnessing the 40 Days Vigil outside the clinic she worked at, Johnson had a change of heart and crossed over to the other side, the side with hope and love.

I remember the last Planned Parenthood conference that I went to before I quit,” Johnson said.  “We were actually talking about the 40 Days for Life. Planned Parenthood was saying that their no-show rates go up as high as 75% when people are simply standing and praying outside of abortion clinics.

Johnson’s story is just one of many stories of the lives changed through this peaceful demonstration. 40 Days for Life has been responsible for the conversions of other abortion clinic workers and the closing of abortion clinics. It has also given hundreds of thousands of pro-lifers another effective way to reach out to lives that need saving from the tragedy of abortion.

Please, get involved. Lives are at stake and you can be the one standing in the gap for women and children in crisis. For the nearest 40 Days for Life location near you, check out
