Beginning today … Sept. 26th — the 40 Days for Life prayer vigil in Rockland is taking place on Perlman Drive in Spring Valley, outside the mall where the Planned Parenthood office is located. Supporters are invited to come & to pray each day beginning Sept. 26th through Nov. 4th, 2018.
The 40 Days for Life is an international, interfaith movement whose goal is to end abortion through prayer, fasting, and community outreach. Volunteers come to a designated prayer site to pray for the victims of abortion, those harmed by it, for those involved in the abortion industry, and for all who strive to defend life. The prayer goes on 24/7 for 40 days. 40 Days for Life has been done in 741 cities and 47 countries.
In Rockland, the prayer site is on Perlman Drive in Spring Valley from 9 am to 5 pm every day, and then prayer continues through the night at the Eucharistic Adoration Chapel at St. Gregory Barbarigo Church in Garnerville. The vigil will go on for 40 Days and end on Nov. 4th.
Volunteers are always needed. If you can commit to one hour a week, please call 845-492-6709 or email email@example.com. And, as they say, “walk-ins” are always welcome. If you have an hour to spare, come on down. You may pray in any manner you choose. Be assured this is a peaceful event, held on public property.
… not everyone is able to stand vigil … but hopefully, you can be a prayer warrior engaged in what is truly spiritual “prayerful … hand-to-hand combat” in this fight to defend life.
We hope you will join us on this very special Sunday afternoon on the corner of
Rte. 59 & Middletown Rd. in Nanuet to STAND & be a VOICE for the unborn
and help put an end to abortion.
You can help make this event the largest PRO-LIFE event in Rockland County History.
Bring the entire family!

We will be there on OCTOBER 7th … Standing Tall & Proud from 2 to 3:30 PM
Hope to see you there.
The New York State 2018 legislative session ended this morning at 1:49 am. No abortion expansion or assisted suicide legislation passed into law this year! Thank you to the New York State Right to Life Committee for keeping up the pressure in Albany and to everyone who contacted their legislators over the past few weeks.
April 23, 2018—Spring Valley, NY. On April 28, a pro-life rally will be held at the Planned Parenthood facility on Perlman Drive in Spring Valley, starting at 11 a.m. This rally is one of more than 100 taking place outside Planned Parenthood centers across the United States, marking the third annual National Day of Prayer and Protest Against Planned Parenthood.
This nationwide day of prayer and protest is being coordinated by #ProtestPP, a coalition of more than 75 national, state and local pro-life organizations, in response to Planned Parenthood’s aggressive new agenda. In February, Planned Parenthood executive vice president Dawn Laguens declared that the organization is “going on the offense,” pursuing abortion expansion plans in “all 50 states.” This month, Planned Parenthood announced their participation in the “Win Justice” project, devoting $30 million to advancing their agenda in the November elections.
“Planned Parenthood is on the warpath,” said Eileen Peterson, the local coordinator for the event, “but too few Rockland County residents know the truth about this controversial organization. Planned Parenthood claims American women rely on them for healthcare, but in reality, four out of five women will never set foot in one of their centers. Planned Parenthood provides less than 1% of annual pap tests and zero mammograms, but they’ve cornered 35% of the U.S. abortion market. They’ve also been caught shielding child predators, defrauding Medicaid, and harvesting fetal tissue for profit.”
The protests to be held April 28 will also call on federal authorities to stop Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer funding. The effort to fully defund the organization of all federal tax dollars—about $430 million annually—has stalled in Congress. But an effort is now underway to revise Title X family planning rules to block Planned Parenthood as a recipient, and deprive them of some $60-80 million annually.
Peterson emphasizes that every dollar taken from Planned Parenthood would be redirected to healthcare providers that are not involved in abortion. “The effort to defund Planned Parenthood has nothing to do with taking healthcare away from poor women and families. It’s about taking tax dollars away from the nation’s largest abortion chain,” she explained.
#ProtestPP is a coalition of more than 75 local, state and national pro-life groups, headed by three national pro-life activist organizations: Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, Created Equal, and the Pro-Life Action League.
