I would like to share with you a little bit about my experience of participating in a 40 Days for Life campaign . . . This time last year I was the campaign coordinator for the first time 40 Days for Life Campaign at a Family Planning Associates in San Diego.
Over the 40 days many beautiful stories were shared and many people were touched by the campaign. Twelve confirmed lives were saved, and ten families spared from the devastation that an abortion brings. More than 1,000 people participated in our campaign, between praying and fasting from home or in front of the abortion clinic. While we know that twelve lives were spared there are many more we will never know about because they drove by the clinic instead of walking in, or they decided not to leave their home at all that morning for their scheduled abortion. Dot Harms, Executive Director of Culture of Life Family Services in San Diego shared with us that at least one crisis pregnancy came to their office every day during the 40 Days for Life campaign, and that was a significantly higher than normal number of women seeking pregnancy counseling.
San Diego came together in solidarity to pray and fast for an end to abortion; it made a difference and saved lives. If you have the opportunity to participate in the next 40 Days for Life campaign I strongly encourage you to do so. The innocent need your prayers and sacrifices.
