On Saturday, Oct. 29 — Day 32 of the 40 Days for Life — a historic nor’easter brought wind and over 8 inches of wet snow to Rockland County, a destructive combo that brought down tree limbs and knocked out electrical power for 27,000 households and businesses for days.
The storm swept in in the early afternoon as the Saturday volunteers of the project to end abortion through prayer and fasting were at their posts outside the Planned Parenthood clinic in Spring Valley.
Despite the swirling snow they kept their vigil and continued to pray that “the personhood of every human being would be proclaimed and protected by law, respected by all, and honored as a unique and sacred gift from God.”
The final day of 40 Days for Life is Sunday, Nov. 6. Everyone is invited to the closing ceremony at 3 pm.
