In Response To New Abortion Law, Brooklyn Diocese Joins ‘40 Days of Life’
To combat the culture of death and as a response to the Reproductive Health Act, which takes away legal protection from the unborn, Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio has announced that the Diocese of Brooklyn will join the international ‘40 Days of Life’ campaign this Lenten season.
“In response to the recent malicious Reproductive Health Act adopted in New York State, I have received dozens of letters and messages from Catholics, throughout Brooklyn and Queens, who are profoundly shocked by this extremist pro-abortion law,” Bishop DiMarzio said. “As such, I thought it critical that during this season of Lent, our faithful have a greater opportunity to be part of something that places great emphasis on the value of life.
“I have pledged the diocese’s support for the worldwide 40 Days For Life campaign, and am encouraging a period of prayer, fasting, peaceful vigil and education to take place in the name of the unborn,” the bishop said.
