During these unified efforts, participants witnessed countless blessings from God:

- More than 13,000 church congregations have participated in the 40 Days for Life campaigns
- Reports document 3,599 lives that have been spared from abortion — and those are just the ones we know about
- 43 abortion workers have quit their jobs and walked away from the abortion industry
- Nine abortion facilities completely shut down following local 40 Days for Life campaigns
- Hundreds of women and men have been spared from the tragic effects of abortion, including a lifetime of regrets
- More than 1,250 news stories have been featured in newspapers, magazines, radio shows and TV programs from coast to coast ... and overseas

After so many years of legalized abortion, many people of faith are experiencing a renewed sense of HOPE!
At our Chapel Hill location:
February 13, 2011:
"Yesterday we were blessed with great news. A young mother looking for a sign of hope saw us praying and decided to keep her baby. She had been inside the abortion facility and was now sitting on the curb in front of their doors with her head bent down. Unsure of her status, whether she was sick from the procedure or something else, we we prayed for her. We had just finished two Rosaries and began praying the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. Then a car stopped in front of her and a relative stepped out and walked toward us. The relative said that we were the 'sign' the young mother was looking for. The young woman's mother had 'kicked' her out when she realized she was pregnant, but our prayers had changed the hearts of both mothers. She said that the family had been through many difficulties lately with the loss of a grandmother and other troubles. We told her that we would keep them and the new child in our prayers. We also gave them our small packet of materials to help them with the pregnancy."
