Would an apostrophe for possession be appropriate?
For instance would the following be proper use:
"which directly contributed to less suffering and lives’ saved"

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
I don't think any apostrophe is necessary. 'Saved' is acting as an adjective, qualifying the plural word 'lives'. Latin would parse 'lives' as the dative case of the noun, not the genetive (possessive).
