It's time again: 40 Days For Life

From Pro-Life Wisconsin:

40 Days for Life begins this Wednesday

This past fall, 589 babies were saved nationwide as a result of 40 Days for Life. Eight of those 589 saved babies are from the Milwaukee area. At least one baby was saved at the Madison Planned Parenthood vigil site. 

Since the fall of 2007, nationally coordinated 40 Days for Life campaigns have mobilized people of faith and conscience in 282 cities across all 50 states.

During these unified efforts, participants witnessed countless blessings from God:

- More than 200,000 have joined together in a display of unity to pray and fast for an end to abortion.

- Reports from around the country document more than 2,168 lives spared from abortion (and those are just the ones we know about!)

- Twenty-six abortion workers have quit their jobs and walked away from the abortion industry.

- Five abortion facilities completely shut down following local 40 Days for Life campaigns.

40 Days for Life will be observed in the Wisconsin area in Milwaukee, Wausau, Green Bay, Madison and Rockford, Ill. To get involved in this spring’s 40 Days for Life, visit

And as I wrote in a previous blog, "Kudos to Milwaukee Journal/Sentinel columnist Patrick McIlheran who wrote a lengthy column (during 2007) about the vigil.To my knowledge, this is the first reference the paper gave to this vigil. Can you imagine if a sit-down protest was held outside the office of Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker. You think the press would be on top of that baby?"
