Great news as we head into the final weekend of the largest-ever 40 Days for Life campaign.

We have confirmed the 107th abortion facility has closed following a 40 Days for Life campaign!

Mark in El Paso, Texas received confirmation that the Hilltop abortion facility has relinquished its license...and he even witnessed the abortion center's sign being painted over in preparation for new tenants!

Mark and his team previously helped close two other abortion facilities in the area. Mark saved the sign he made to celebrate one of those previous closures in the hopes that he might one day need it again.

Those hopes have now been fulfilled!

"Prayer and fasting work," Mark said. "Let's keep the fight on. We've got three of the five abortion facilities [in the area] closed in three years. I say we go five-for-five!"

Madison, Wisconsin

St. Ambrose Academy in Madison scheduled a service day, sacrificing a day of academic instruction to serve fellow members of the community.

A group of students decided to spend their service day praying--in the rain--for abortion-vulnerable moms and babies at Planned Parenthood.

Madison is about to complete its 14th straight 24-hour vigil without ever missing a single hour!

Such an accomplishment requires a lot of sacrifice, especially during the frigid middle-of-the-night hours.

"We have honorable men, fathers, and grandfathers stepping up to the plate and praying at all hours of the day; it is incredible!" reported Joni. "My husband has been going almost every day and sometimes for three hours a shift."


40 Days for Life General Counsel Matt Britton recently returned from campaign visits in Montana, where a record October snowfall just blanketed the state.

"Driving away from the facility on the scheduled abortion day, a man and woman stopped their car and told the Billings 40 Days for Life team that they didn’t have to worry because they 'decided to keep the baby,'" Matt reported.

Matt wasn't the only guest to visit the Missoula rally.

"A young lady had chosen life a day or two before, and she stopped by the vigil with the father of her child to show us her ultrasound pictures of her unborn baby. She was extremely happy and joyful."

You have heard it was said, ‘you shall love your neighbor, and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you.

— Matthew 5: 43-44

Heavenly Father, may we reflect your character of grace and kindness to those who hate us and curse us. Guard our hearts and our tongues as we respond in love to words and actions meant to rile us or cause us harm. Let others see the Hope that is Christ in all we say and do.
