October 12, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Yesterday the 40 Days for Life campaign announced a significant milestone for the burgeoning pro-life initiative – its 3,000th baby saved from abortion since the first 40 Days campaign in the fall of 2007.
“To God be the glory for reaching this major milestone!” wrote Shawn Carney of 40 Days in yesterday’s update. “That's a LOT of children and mothers spared from abortion. And that's a lot of GREAT stories.”
Carney shared one such story from an abortion facility in Reno Nevada, where the abortionist has actually installed a sprinkler system aimed directly at the sidewalk where 40 Days participants stand and pray.
Carney relates that at the Reno site recently, “A woman driving out of the abortion center's parking lot stopped to ask one of the local volunteer for her phone number. Shortly after, the volunteer received a text message.”
The woman wrote in the text message that the previous week she had gone to the abortion facility to drop off the payment for an upcoming abortion, at which point she saw the pro-life protesters out front.
“As I was driving away I couldn’t help but think that maybe there was another way. All this week I thought and prayed about it and I realized in my heart what the right thing to do was,” she wrote.
“I can’t help but think, that had you guys not been there that day to remind me that I had another choice, that maybe one more baby would have died today.” Read more
