The significance of 40 days comes from numerous examples of 40-day periods in the Bible. "Just think of the transformation God could accomplish when individuals and communities across America unite this fall for 40 days of prayer and fasting, pulling out all the stops to end the violence of abortion," said Carney. Carney claims the campaign proved successful in Texas, Washington, Wisconsin and North Carolina. "The first 40 Days for Life that was conducted in College Station, Texas, exceeded all of our expectations. In just 40 days, over 1,000 new pro-life volunteers were activated; more than 25,000 households were reached through a grassroots door-to-door effort; local, state, and national news was generated; and most importantly, the local abortion rate was slashed by 28 percent."

"On Wednesday, July 25, at 9:00 PM Eastern, the campaign's cutting edge strategies, track record of lifesaving results, and plans for this fall's aggressive nationwide rollout will be revealed to pro-life advocates across the country on a large teleconference and web simulcast," he said in a statement carried by Christian Newswire Monday. The campaign, which starts Sept. 26, focusses on 40 days of prayer and fasting, peaceful vigils at abortion facilities and aggressive community outreach.
