40 days for life

Have you ever heard of 40 days for life?  It's the best thing to happen to the pro-life movement in a long time.  In more than 200 cities across North America (including 7 Canadian cities) pro-lifers will be holding a non-stop peaceful vigil in front of abortion facilities, from September 23 to November 1.  That's 24/7 for 40 consecutive days.  

The true roots of the Culture of Death are spiritual.  Therefore, the only lasting solution will require a spiritual remedy.  That's why this period of 40 days of praying, fasting and peaceful witness in front of abortion facilities is so important.  

It has been extremely effective in the past in helping pregnant women change their minds about having abortions.  Several staff at abortion facilities have also quit.  Here in Ottawa, we know of 10 babies that have been saved by this initiative. 

Read more at this link.  Participate in the 40 days for life campaign in your city.  If your city doesn't have 40 days for life, then discuss it with your fellow pro-lifers so that you can organize your own vigil in time for our next 40 days, which will run during the winter of 2010.
