.- The U.S.-based group 40 Days for Life announced at the end of their fall campaign that this year 541 babies were saved from abortion during the event.

The latest 40 Days for Life campaign was held from from Sept. 22 to Oct. 31, and included activities from participants such as prayer and fasting, peaceful vigils and community outreach throughout the U.S.

“It’s Day 40 – and I have great news to share!” campaign director Shawn Carney wrote on the group's website on Sunday. “As of right now, we know of 541 babies – and their mothers – that God has spared from abortion.”

“That’s at least 3,352 since the first coordinated 40 Days for Life campaign a mere three years ago,” he noted. “And who knows how many more that we’ll never hear about?”

Though certain groups around the U.S reported opposition from local clinics, as well as some run by Planned Parenthood, Carney reported that ultimately, the event was a national success.

The pro-life leader also said that there were “at least four abortion facility employees” who left their jobs during the just completed campaign. “And others may be thinking about it,” he noted.

40 Days for Life branched out across the Atlantic this year and began its first campaign in London, England on September 22, in conjunction with the launch of the U.S. fall campaign.
