The organizer of this year’s 40 Days for Life prayer campaign in Anchorage has issued a challenge to fellow pro-life advocates to join the midpoint rally of the ongoing campaign. The Oct. 10th rally takes place at the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic at 4002 E. Lake Otis Parkway in Anchorage and will coincide with the National Protest Planned Parenthood day. The rally runs from 9-11 a.m.
In a notice sent to supporters organizer Phillip De Land called on Alaskans to peacefully “protest the abortion giant’s barbaric practice of aborting babies and selling their body parts.”
“In the wake of the horrific videos exposing this practice, now is the time for Christians to stand up and demand an end to this evil taking place in our midst,” he wrote.
The rally is just part of the larger 40 Days for Life campaign which continues through Nov. 1. In 40 Days for Life, each fall and spring, pro-life advocates gather outside abortion facilities around the world to peacefully stand vigil, pray for unborn babies and help mothers choose life for their children.
Vigils are now taking place in more than 300 cities.
Since 40 Days for Life began in 2007 the organization reports that there have been 10,331 unborn babies saved from abortion during the prayer campaigns.
To sign-up for vigil hours in Anchorage, visit 40daysforlife.com/local-campaigns/anchorage or contact local organizer Phillip De Land at email@example.com
Those unable to attend the vigil in person are invited to pray and fast for an end to abortion from home.
