From the national 40 Days for Life:
So far during this campaign, we are aware of 483 babies who have been saved from abortion. (And reports from local teams will still be coming in for the next week or so. So we hope and pray that number will continue to grow.)
Since 40 Days for Life started these coordinated campaigns in September of 2007, we now know of more than 4,000 babies saved from abortion! And yes, THAT is the milestone! The current total is 4,082!
4,082 people is a lot of folks! If you’ve ever heard of Centerville, Tennessee or Lathrop, Missouri — those are towns whose populations are around 4,082.
Through your prayers, God has spared enough human beings to fill a whole town.
From 40 Days for Life Milwaukee:
What we have accomplished in the 40DFL campaigns throughout the years is indescribable. The spring 2010 campaign had 10 saves. The fall 2010 campaign had 20 saves. This spring, we are at 28 saves. Combined, these precious souls would pack a school bus. The growth in saves can be directly attributed to your growth in faith and action.
