“40 Days for Life has generated proven life-saving results since its beginning in 2004,” said Shawn Carney, national president. “During 26 previously coordinated campaigns, over 1,000 communities have participated in this effort. More than one million people — representing some 20,000 churches — have committed to pray and fast. And we know of over 17,000 unborn children whose lives were spared from abortion during 40 Days for Life campaigns.”
“We know 40 Days for Life has made a difference,” said Salem coordinator Bob Snyder. Our volunteers have made extraordinary sacrifices to expose the abortion industry and to protect children and their mothers from abortion.”
