Soon the David vs. Goliath story will  play out again in Rockland on a little strip of public land in Spring Valley as faithful volunteers take their stand against the giant abortion establishment and Planned Parenthood in the 40 Days For Life.

After so many years of legalized abortion, it may seem that Planned Parenthood and the pro-abortion forces — like Goliath, the giant Phillistine warrior in the Bible — are  unstoppable.

But you know you have to do something. Otherwise, even more little ones will be lost to the culture of death. So, this year, take a leap of faith and join with the “Davids” on Perlman Drive, by the Spring Valley Marketplace, near the strip mall where the Planned Parenthood office is.

All you need to do is give one hour a week to stand with other prolifers and pray. It’s a vigil of peace. In this battle, your only “weapons” are your prayers and your love.

God will provide the rest.

I’m sure you know how the David and Goliath story turned out. So you may not be surprised to learn what the 40 Days for Life campaign has accomplished since it began in 2007.

  • 1,633 campaigns have taken place in 422 cities. More than half a million volunteers have joined together in a historic display of unity to fast and pray for an end to abortion.
  • Reports document 5,045 lives that have been spared from abortion — and those are just the ones we know about.
  • 61 abortion workers have quite their jobs and walked away from the abortion industry.
  • 21 abortion facilities completely shut down following local 40 Days for  Life campaigns.

Lives have been saved here in Rockland because some people — like you — were there. Give God a chance to work through you. Come to the 40 Days for Life.
