40 Days for Life

During the season of Lent, cities around the U.S. are participating in the 40 Days for Life campaign against abortion. Here's a quip from their website

40 Days for Life is a community-based campaign that draws attention to the evil of abortion through the use of a three-point program:

* Prayer and fasting
* Constant vigil
* Community outreach

On Wednesday morning, I bundled up my kiddos and we joined many other Christians at a vigil outside of Planned Parenthood, and we prayed.

A lady by the name of Abby Johnson from Houston, TX, also joined us. She used to work in a Planned Parenthood clinic for almost a decade, until Christ changed her heart. She tried talking to the men and women who were going inside for an abortion, telling them that there are alternatives. I admired her boldness.

So I would encourage you to check out the 40 Days for Life website, and see if there is a group keeping constant vigil outside of your local Planned Parenthood. I bet there is! And GO JOIN THEM!
