Over 650 babies were saved as parents who were considering abortion stopped to talk with volunteers praying at our nation’s abortion clinics and Planned Parenthood offices during this autumn’s 40 Days for Life. Two of these babies were from Rockland.

The vigil of prayer, fasting, and raising awareness of the abortion issue ended on Nov. 1. Thirty-one participants gathered in Rockland for a closing ceremony.  Continue reading

This was the response of Eileen Peter, one of the coordinators of the Rockland 40 Days for Life campaign, to the tumultuous summer that saw outcry of horror against the gruesome Planned Parenthood abortion videos.

And she’s right.

If we’re beside ourselves, outraged and disgusted by the barbaric videos, our first reaction needs to be prayer. And the second reaction should be to find the closest 40 Days for Life Campaign and sign up to pray where Planned Parenthood is. They are able to sell baby body parts because they have the parts to sell in the first place.

You can stop that through prayer and peaceful presence. You can be that witness.  And you can be on the right side of history. It doesn’t require much – just overcoming a little initial fear.  Continue reading
