More than 700 unborn children were saved from abortion during pro-life group 40 Days for Life's fall campaign, according to Baptist Press. The semi-annual campaign, which focuses on peaceful prayer vigils outside abortion clinics, was held this fall at a record 301 sites in the United States and abroad, and 40 Days staff received reports of 732 unborn babies protected from abortion from Sept. 28 to Nov. 6. More than 5,000 unborn children have been saved since the 40 Days effort began in Texas in 2004; the effort went national in 2007.
