Anchor LogoCatholicAnchor.org
With the aim of ending abortion in America, 40 Days for Life is in the middle of a 40-day bus tour to bring its message to cities and towns across the United States that are united in prayer and fasting during this fall’s 40 Days for Life campaign, which runs through November 6. The tour will hold a rally in Anchorage at 7 p.m., October 24, on the public sidewalk outside of Planned Parenthood (4001 E. Lake Otis Parkway). The public is encouraged to attend. The event will include addresses from Steve Karlen, 40 Days For Life National Outreach Director and Georgette Forney from Silent No More.
“Poll after poll reveals that an overwhelming majority of Americans feel our nation is on the wrong track,” said 40 Days for Life CEO David Bereit, “and when pressed, many respondents cite growing disillusionment with politics and government, along with frustration over increasing attacks against faith, family, religious freedom and human life. It’s time for this to change.”

The bus tour is making stops in more than 125 cities to hold rallies and prayer vigils to encourage Christians to stand together for the sanctity of life across the nation. 40 Days for Life is joined by partner organizations for the tour: March for Life, Heartbeat International, Silent No More Awareness, Students for Life and Susan B. Anthony List, along with numerous city and state pro-life coalition groups.

”Since 40 Days for Life started in 2007,” said 40 Days for Life president Shawn Carney, “we have recognized that although abortion is a national problem, it does not happen in the White House, in Congress, or in the Supreme Court. Abortion takes place in hometowns across America – and it will end, and is ending, in hometowns across America, one by one.”

Each 40 Days for Life campaign consists of 40 days of prayer and fasting, community outreach, and constant, peaceful vigil in the public right-of-way outside abortion facilities. According to the 40 Days for Life website, volunteers who pray at these vigils have witnessed answers to their prayers, including: 11,796 babies saved from abortion, 133 workers who have left the abortion industry, and 75 abortion centers which closed their doors forever following 40 Days for Life vigils.
