About 40 Days for Life


Join the next internationally coordinated campaign to save lives, this coming Fall from September 24 - Nov 2, 2014!

This fall there will be hundreds of communities in North America, including many Canadian cities, simultaneously hosting a 40 Days For Life campaign from September 24 -  November 2, 2014.

These campaigns produce tremendous fruits. In many Canadian cities, dozens of babies have been saved from abortion. If you wish to join the next 40 Days For Life in your community, please contact your local campaign coordinator (below) and find out how you can sign up as a vigil volunteer.

Please consider becoming a prayer volunteer by donating at least 1 hour of prayer and fasting in front of the local abortion facility. If you are part of a church community, perhaps your pastor would like to "Adopt a day"?

The fruits of 40 Days For Life and its history in Canada

After witnessing tremendous success by the 40 Days For Life program in the United States, Campaign Life Coalition brought it into Canada for the first time in 2007, holding our nation's first 40 day vigils in Ottawa, ON and Halifax, NS. Since then, CLC and other pro-life groups have organized 40 Days For Life campaigns more than 20 cities across Canada. Some cities run the campaign twice a year (Spring & Fall). Other cities run them only once annually.

Since 2007, 3039 individual campaigns have taken place in 539 cities across the world and 625,000 people have joined together in this historic display of unity, prayer and fasting for an end to abortion.

40 Days For Life has succeeded in shutting down 54 abortion facilities, and has documented saving at least 8,973 babies. In addition to the babies, 101 abortion workers have quit their jobs and walked away from the abortion industry and thousands of women have been spared the suffering and trauma that comes with the decision to abort one's own child.
