WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT THE 40 DAYS FOR LIFE:
ABBY JOHNSON, FORMER PLANNED PARENTHOOD DIRECTOR — NOW A PROLIFE ADVOCATE
“I am in this movement today because of ordinary people who took on an extraordinary task.
My former abortion clinic is closed because of their sacrifice. Babies are alive because of them. Women are no longer being hurt by abortion in their community.
You can do this. You can save a life. I now stand alongside you in this 40 Days for Life movement.”
The Rockland 40 Days for Life takes place every day from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Perlman Drive in Spring Valley. It is peaceful and prayerful. We stand on public property on the outskirts of a mall where Planned Parenthood has an office. There is no confrontation or attempt to block access. We can’t even see the part of the mall where the office is. But we hope anyone going there — and all those passing by — see our message and are moved by our prayers.
During this cold spell, many participants are praying from inside their parked cars.
The 40 Days continues overnight from 6 p.m. to 9 a.m. in the Perpetual Adoration Chapel of St. Gregory Barbarigo Church in Garnerville.
