From 40 Days For Life: DAY 2: Your Planned Parenthood stat


Of the 375+ locations where peaceful 40 Days for Life prayer vigils are under way ... more than 150 are outside Planned Parenthood offices.
But Planned Parenthood is closing facilities at a record pace … and at least in part, they have YOU to blame for that.
Former Planned Parenthood directors report that the "no-show" rate for abortion appointments goes as high as 75% when people are out in front praying!
That is detrimental to any business -- but it's important to know that when Planned Parenthood’s business goes down, it means that lives are saved from abortion.
It's that simple. Now is the time to show up ... and pray like never before.
Planned Parenthood is still America's abortion giant … and they're still responsible for more than 300,000 abortions every year.
But whether it’s a Planned Parenthood office in your community – or an independent abortion facility or a hospital – join the closest 40 Days for Life campaign!

White Plains, New York

White Plains is hosting its eleventh 40 Days for Life campaign … with volunteers praying outside a Planned Parenthood abortion center that is open six days a week.
This is one of the 150+ Planned Parenthood businesses where vigils are currently in progress.
At the White Plains kickoff event, a man told his story of how he came to understand what was going on at the abortion facility – that babies are dying inside that building … and they don 't have a "choice."
He added that making the sacrifice to simply show up and stand on the sidewalk outside Planned Parenthood, praying for the mothers and the babies, provides an important witness to all concerned.

Atlanta, Georgia

The 40 Days for Life team in Atlanta kicked off its campaign with several events … including a prayer service, a rally and a baby shower.
Katharine O'Brien, 40 Days for Life’s director of youth and Hispanic outreach (third from the left in the photo above), spoke to the group, giving an update on the campaign and the mission’s newest initiatives.
Margarita, the local coordinator, offered "a big thank you to First Alliance Church and Ready to Go Ministries and all who participated in tons of great food, gifts and prayer" at the baby shower.
"I sensed a nudge from the Lord," she said, "that He desires to use our public prayer vigil -- and the prayers and fasting of all who join us from home -- to pour out His mercy and grace" on all who are caught up in the abortion agenda.
In those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplying, there arose a complaint against the Hebrews by the Hellenists, because their widows were neglected in the daily distribution.
— Acts 6:1
Father, in the Church's desire to engage our communities with the gospel, let us gain wisdom from those who have gone before us and cherish their experiences and perspectives. Help us to appreciate every soul in the body of Christ and minister properly to everybody.
