40 Days for Life Launches Spring Campaign in Austin!!!
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;
Before you were born I sanctified you;
I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”
This evening, the 40 Days for Life campaign held kickoff events in hundreds of cities around the planet; here in Austin, they met outside the Planned Parenthood facility on Ben White.
40 Days for Life is a global event that holds semi-annual prayer vigils outside abortion facilities. The goal is to peacefully and prayerfully put the facilities out of business. Globally, 40 days for life has saved over 11,000 babies from abortion and rescued 127 clinic workers from the abortion industry since it's inception in 2007.
Here in Austin, this is the fifteenth campaign. To our knowledge, at least 222 women have changed their minds during that time, saving at least 225 babies from abortion. Nine clinic workers have left the abortion industry during that time, including three in the past four months!
"This is mission work in our own backyard!"
