YOU can help save lives!
In the fall of 2012 from September 26 – November 4, our community [now participating in it’s 11th campaign] will be one of more than 316 cities across the United States (49 states plus Washington, DC), Canada (7 provinces), England, Spain, Australia and for the first time Uganda joining together for a coordinated international pro-life mobilization — the 40 Days for Life campaign. Many new cities (46) have joined in this campaign.
40 Days for Life is a groundbreaking pro-life initiative that burst onto the national scene just eight years ago, mobilizing more than 525,000 people and over 14,000 church organizations across 49 states — and 5 foreign countries — during ten coordinated campaigns, saving 5928 baby’s lives from abortion. The community-based 40 Days for Life campaign involves people of faith in 40 days of prayer and fasting for an end to abortion, round-the-clock peaceful vigils outside abortion facilities, and grassroots educational outreach.
40 Days for Life is a focused pro-life effort that consists of:
- 40 days of prayer and fasting
- 40 days of peaceful vigil
- 40 days of community outreach
We are praying that, with God’s help, this groundbreaking effort will mark the beginning of the end of abortion in West Chester — and throughoutAmerica.
