DAY 34: 496 babies saved!

March 25th, 2012 by admin

Here we are — the final Monday of this 40 Days for Life campaign. And the stories of God’s miracles keep rolling in! In the first 33 days of prayer and fasting, there have been 496 babies saved from abortion — that we know of!

Here are just a few stories from the sidewalk.


You may remember a story last week about an abortion center employee advising a young woman not to have an abortion after her ultrasound showed pictures of twins.

Well — a campaign director in another location wrote me to say the SAME THING happened there!

It’s not the first time this employee has suggested that a client visit the local pro-life pregnancy center. “We’re trying to pray her out of the abortion business,” the director said.

That’s at least TWO SETS OF TWINS saved by ultrasound.

BUT WAIT! It gets better!

Keep in mind that abortion facilities usually have a policy: DO NOT let the client see the ultrasound. Once they see a baby rather than a “fetus” or “blob of tissue,” they’re much more likely to choose life. And it’s not just a baby they see — it’s THEIR baby.

We then heard another story of an employee who showed a young woman her ultrasound image. She took one look and headed for the door.

“Abortion?” she said. “NO WAY!” … because the ultrasound image showed … QUADRUPLETS!

Praise God — times four!


A volunteer at the 40 Days for Life vigil outside the abortion center in Modesto struck up a conversation with a man on the sidewalk, showing him a model of what the child in the womb looks like at 12 weeks.

Never, he said, had anyone in his family ever had anything to do with an abortion — until that day. He told her he had driven his son and his girlfriend to the abortion center to schedule the abortion of his grandson. The three left shortly afterward, and returned the next day.

This time, another volunteer approached the man and showed him an image from the brochure — the child in the womb at 16 weeks. That “really seemed to change his mind,” said the volunteer. “When he saw how developed his 17-week-old was, his eyes sort of bugged and he immediately rushed back into the abortion center to try and stop the abortion.”

Later on, the first volunteer saw the three of them driving out of the parking lot. They rolled down their window and told her they had changed their mind!


A young man pulled off the road to talk to vigil participants at 40 Days for Life in Southfield. “He was beaming as only a proud new father can,” said Mike.

This father of a newborn wanted to thank one of the prayer volunteers for talking him and his wife out of having an abortion during last fall’s 40 Days for Life.

“I’m struck with awe and humility to be part of this wonderful vigil for life,” Mike said.

Here’s the link to today’s devotional.

    Today is the Feast of the Annunciation when the angel Gabriel told Mary she was to be the Mother of Jesus. Pray to her to ask her Son to change hearts and minds of all the doctors and those who work with them to STOP killing our Babies. Praise God for hearing our prayers pray for the volunteers and to end abortion forever. Thank you all for your dedication. God Bless and keep you safe. Elizabeth

    Our Lady of the Annunciation, please pray for all unborn babies in their mothers’ wombs. Pray for the conversion of all who advocate, promote, perform and assist in abortions. May they all see the terrible evil they are doing and turn to Him, who is all merciful, and to His Mother for guidance.
    Thank you, God, for 496 saved babies. May they all remain faithful to You all t he days of their lives. Amen

    Deuteronomy 30:19
    I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live;
    Praise God for all those choosing life today! Hallelujah!

  9. Coral Rose Shipley Says:

    The thought I have today is : how the Spirit of God is vital in leading us to respect all life, knowing that it is God’s responsibility to sustain the life He has created. We have many challenges is caring for all life. It is God, Who gives us the strength and wisdom to care for our own lives and the lives that He gives us to care for, ie children, grandchildren, siblings, parents. PTL!

  10. Dave Mattozzi Says:

    Let us all pray for an end to abortion.

  11. Laura Says:

God Bless the people who have spoken to a pp prayer warrior around the world! Hoping my work has changed the views of many I meet to choose life. :)

  13. Lamar Hagan Says:

    Thank you all for being there, praying and being a witness to hope. “Be strong and courageous, for the Lord, your God is with you wherever you go.” Thanks to God for all the lives saved. God wants to end abortion. He has given us freedom of religion and freedom of speech. Let us defend life and freedom while we still have them. Remember to pray today for the Supreme Court as they consider Obamacare and its HHS mandate for contraception and abortion. Thanks again for all of your efforts. They are not in vain in the Lord. Our
    God is awesome!
