November 6, 2014: Ten years ago, the very first 40 Days for Life campaign was conducted outside the Planned Parenthood abortion center in Bryan/College Station, Texas. Last year, it became the 37th abortion facility to shut down following 40 Days for Life campaigns outside their doors (22 more have closed since then). Today, that building is about to become the NEW HEADQUARTERS of 40 Days for Life!
Short-term plans include a memorial service for the children lost to abortion inside the building, and tearing down the tall, black iron fence surrounding the property as part of renovations.
The new 40 Days for Life headquarters will be used to help many more communities end abortion. The building will also house Hope Pregnancy Center, an affiliate of CareNet, as they expand their local medical services to include free STD testing. “The partnership between the two organizations demonstrates the close relationship between 40 Days for Life and life-saving pregnancy resource centers,” Carney said.
40 Days for Life has more than 9,500 confirmed saves (babies whose mothers changed their minds because of the pray-ers outside the clinic they were going to enter). In addition, 59 abortion centers that had 40 Days for Life campaigns outside their doors are now closed.
