Were there to be no support in the whole history of ethical and moral thought, were there no acknowledged confirmation from medical science, were the history of legal opinion to the contrary, we would still have to conclude on the basis of God's Holy Word that the unborn child is a person in the sight of God. He is protected by the sanctity of life graciously given to each individual by the Creator, Who alone places His image upon man and grants them any right to life which they have.
The premise of a 40 Days for Life campaign is simple: 40 days of prayer and fasting for an end to abortion.
But as easy as that sounds, prayer and fasting can be easier said than done.
After all, how do you pray for an entire hour? And what's the point of fasting anyway? To
answer those questions, we've released two episodes of the 40 Days for
Life Podcast that will help draw you into prayer and deepen your
spiritual life on the sidewalk this campaign:
Listen...and then share these podcast episodes on social media...
...and speaking of social media, the
40 Days for Life campaign is a GREAT time to get breaking news about
saved babies, converted workers, and closed abortion facilities around
the world by following 40 Days for Life on social media:

joined an Interfaith Jericho March (modeled after the march around
Jericho described in Scripture) outside of Planned Parenthood. A
Catholic priest and a Lutheran pastor led the group in prayer.

dads, and abortion workers."
Ann Arbor campaign team has consistently achieved FULL vigil coverage,
which has helped dramatically decrease the number of abortions performed
in Washtenaw County since the city's first 40 Days for Life campaign in
The campaign in Columbia also held a Jericho March.
Abortion supporters from the "Guild of Silly Heathens" (yes--that's the name they chose) attempted to disrupt the event with a "parade of filth." It didn't go well.
15 prayer volunteers were just a fraction of those on hand--the rest
were marching. Eventually, a dozen or so "Silly Heathens" arrived, but
they cut short the stunt when neighbors "expressed their disapproval of
the entire spectacle."
King will answer and say to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as
you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.”
and merciful Father, we renew our dedication to defending the unborn
and all whose right to life is compromised by our godless society’s
selfish lack of concern. Free us from our own failures and sins so that
we will be truly pro-life in every area of our lives.

hoped that this would happen, but didn't think it would happen so soon."
What did happen?
Renée had the opportunity to speak with a staff member for the former abortion facility who told her that the
decision to stop performing abortions was made due to
"picketers"--specifically the 40 Days for Life presence there from
Renée summed up the victory perfectly: "Peaceful, public prayer and presence does work."
The Champaign campaign team has moved its vigil to Planned Parenthood--the city's last remaining abortion facility.

counselors, letting them know about abortion alternatives.
For a business that so frequently touts freedom of "choice," abortion providers aren't happy when vigil participants offer their customers a choice that isn't abortion. Whether it's unwanted leaflets or "unwanted" children, the abortion industry's response is the same: throw them away!
