40  Days -- Knit in mother's wombThis autumn’s 40 Days for Life — a time of prayer and fasting to end abortion — began yesterday in Spring Valley. This is the eleventh time the 40 Days have been held on Perlman Drive where Planned Parenthood is located.

About 15 people gathered for the opening ceremony at 3 p.m., and prayer will continue for 40 days around the clock, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Perlman Drive site and overnight at the Eucharistic Adoration Chapel of St. Gregory Barbarigo Church in Garnerville, until Nov. 3.

Before the prayer service began, Rabbi Noson Leiter from Torah Jews for Decency spoke about the importance of keeping our community safe from immorality and the destruction of children by abortion.
