100 babies saved so far during this 40 Days for Life campaign, leaders report
October 9, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – The latest 40 Days for Life campaign is well underway, and the pro-life organization is reporting remarkable progress so far as it launches a new ad detailing the latest extremes supported by the abortion lobby.
40 Days for Life organizes round-the-clock prayer vigils outside of abortion facilities around the world, persistent displays to raise awareness that abortion is not only happening in a community, but that there are community members willing to oppose it. The organization says that since 2007, it has led to the prevention of over 16,000 abortions, the closing of over 100 abortion centers, and the quitting of almost 200 abortion workers.
On Monday, 40 Days for Life tweeted word that the latest campaign, which has only been going on for two weeks, just saved its hundredth baby from abortion:
We've just gotten report of our 100th baby saved during this #40DaysforLife campaign! To God be the glory!— 40 Days for Life (@40daysforlife) October 8, 2019
Get involved! Your prayers and sacrifices save lives! https://t.co/8nRcnXoAlr pic.twitter.com/vjzaZYLsvP
The same day, 40 Days for Life unveiled a new ad it plans to air in select locations, framing Planned Parenthood as “out of touch” with women for backing abortion up until birth.
“Despite the scandal of selling body parts of aborted babies for profit, Planned Parenthood is now advocating for abortions beyond nine months, even as a woman is dilated and giving birth,” the ad says.
It goes on to reference the cheers that filled New York’s state Senate upon passing a law allowing virtually unlimited abortions, and plays a clip from an infamous 2013 hearing in which Planned Parenthood lobbyist Alisa Lapolt Snow admitted to Florida lawmakers that she “really [didn’t] know how to answer” how a baby delivered alive on a table following an abortion would be treated.
In the years since that testimony, the issue of infanticide has only intensified, with Virginia Democrat Gov. Ralph Northam’s infamous January comments about keeping babies with severe defects “comfortable” until the family decided whether to let them die, and national Democrats opposing legislation that would guarantee medical care to infants who survive abortions.
“Women deserve better choices,” the ad concludes. “Loving support and free resources are available to help bring your unplanned pregnancy to life.”
“Planned Parenthood's abortion extremism might be popular in Hollywood and with powerful lobbyists in Washington, D.C,” 40 Days president Shawn Carney said. “But they should have to answer for their barbaric support of abortion and infanticide in the neighborhoods where they operate.”
