“40 Days for Life is really working,” said Fatimah, the leader of this campaign.

“People are coming to the vigil point for prayers on a daily basis to ensure the end of abortion.”

Abortion is illegal in Nigeria – but abortions are unfortunately available nonetheless. This is a critical concern when it comes to secondary school girls, who will turn to abortion because they do not want to withdraw from their studies.

“Many female students are calling our team leader,” said one of the volunteers, “thanking her because they didn’t know the effects of abortion” or fully understand that “life is precious and worth living.”

The campaign will continue its outreach, particularly to the youth. “God is by our side,” the team member said, adding that they would continue “to visit most vulnerable places where young girls are committing abortion.”
