Support 40 Days for Life in the UK

Here is some information adapted from 40 Days for Life about its campaign in the UK, 22 September to 31 October:

40 Days for Life is a pro-life initiative that began in the USA. 40 Days for Life consists of:
  • 40 days of prayer and fasting
  • 40 days of peaceful vigil
  • 40 days of community outreach
To date:
  • More than 350,000 have joined together in an historic display of unity to pray and fast for an end to abortion
  • More than 11,500 church congregations have participated in the 40 Days for Life campaigns
  • Reports document 2,811 lives that have been spared from abortion — and those are just the ones we know about
  • 35 abortion workers have quit their jobs and walked away from the abortion industry
  • Six abortion facilities completely shut down following local 40 Days for Life campaigns
  • Hundreds of women and men have been spared from the tragic effects of abortion, including a lifetime of regrets
  • More than 850 news stories have been featured in newspapers, magazines, radio shows and TV programmes
  • Many people with past abortion experiences have stepped forward to begin post-abortion healing and recovery.
As they saying goes, "actions speak louder than words". I think these actions speak very loudly indeed.

40 Days for Life is now coming to London from 22 September to 31 October. A constant vigil will be keep outside the Marie Stopes abortion clinic in central London, 24 hours a day, for 40 days.

The bottom line is this: if you
  • are prolife
  • care about the plight of unborn children
  • care about the countless women left scarred by abortion
  • want to reach out to the many men who should have been fathers
  • want to do something that will save lives and change the culture of death into a culture of life
then please, commit yourself to supporting 40 Days for Life London. Sign-up, and make a weekly commitment to prayer with fellow pro-lifers at the vigil outside Marie Stopes in central London.

This isn’t just an invitation or an awareness campaign aimed at churches and pro-life organisations; it’s a personal invitation to each and every person, to prayer, fast, and act.

More information and ways to commit can be found on the 40 Days for Life London website.
