About 40 Days for Life

 

Join the next internationally coordinated campaign to save lives, this coming Fall from September 23 - November 1, 2015!

This Fall, there will be hundreds of communities in North America, including several Canadian cities, simultaneously hosting a 40 Days For Life campaign from September 23 -  November 1, 2015.

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 join a prayer vigil.

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"? Do you belong to a lay movement or ministry? Why not book a full day of prayer for your group?

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 and Halifax. Since then, CLC volunteers and other pro-life groups have organized 40 Days For Life campaigns in 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, 3,588 individual campaigns have taken place in 579 cities in 30 nations across the world and 650,000 volunteers 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 60 abortion facilities, and has documented saving at least 10,331 babies. In addition to the babies, 118 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.
