18,855 lives saved world-wide (and these are just the ones we know about) since 2007. Abortion centers closed 112. Abortion workers quit 221.
First Vancouver campaign in 2009 saw a couple change their plan to abort their baby when they saw our volunteers praying on the sidewalk. "My girlfriend and I have decided to give our baby up for adoption."
Hearts broken by abortion begin to hope and heal. In 2017 a lady told us about her abortion over 20 years ago. Our response: “We grieve for your loss.” She said: “No one has ever said that to me before.” We prayed with her asking our heavenly Father to forgive and heal us. Then she thanked us for praying for her baby (we had never mentioned her baby) and took our packet of literature with post-abortion healing information inside.
We rely heavily on the prayers and sacrifices offered by many at home, work and school. Our at-home prayer warriors may benefit from the prayer resources found at www.40daysforlife.com
