Forty Days for Life: Banned by the Archbishop in Adelaide Australia!

40daysNO

The Adelaide Archdiocese under Archbishop Philip Wilson, former President of the Australian Bishops Conference, is a strange, ultra-liberal place.

A place, apparently, where parishes are not even allowed to publicise pro-life activities such as the upcoming 40 Days for Life campaign, lest anyone be offended at being told that abortion is murder.

It’s once again time for 40 Days for Life

40 Days for Life

What is 40 Days for Life?     

40 Days for Life Prayer Vigil is a wonderful ‘ life saving’ opportunity to join with our community and hundreds of cities around the world in prayer, fasting and keeping a peaceful vigil in front of a place where children are killed by abortion. Through God, and your prayers and fasting, 40 Days for Life has saved more than 7,536 lives from abortion.  It has led to the conversion of clinic workers and has seen many abortion facilities close forever.

“We often forget the incredible power of prayer and loving witness, but 40 Days for Life reminds us of the fruits of dialogue with the Lord.”

How Can I Help?

Please sign up to pray for an hour or more at Access Health Center at 1700 75th Street in Downers Grove by visiting www.40daysforlife.com/downersgrove and clicking on “Vigil Schedule”.  The Fall 40 Days for Life campaign runs from Wednesday, September 25th through Sunday, November 3rd, from 7am-7pm each day.  Reserve your spot today!

If you can’t come out to the vigil site, private prayer and fasting are also ways in which you can be a part of 40 Days for Life.

Thank you for choosing to protect the most vulnerable of God’s creation!

Planned Parenthood “tumbling down”

A photo of the sign at the Planned Parenthood abortion business Abby Johnson used to manage is making the round of the Internet.

The abortion giant closed the Bryan-College Station, Texas abortion clinic and no one is more happy about the news than Abby herself — who tweeted and Facebooked the picture.

Johnson said: “The Planned Parenthood sign at my former clinic has come down!! It is really closed. I don’t think it has become real for me yet. No more women will walk into that facility to be harmed again. No more children will die inside those walls.”

Before the Rally even started, God gave an incredible blessing. A couple stopped on their way out of the Planned Parenthood and told our sidewalk counselors that they had decided not to go through with the abortion. Though the 40 Days Campaign hadn’t even started yet, God was already doing wondrous things!

40 Days for Life sidewalk counselor arrested on orders from Chicago’s Planned Parenthood

As a group of us were assembled to pray during the 40 Days for Life vigil taking place outside the Albany Medical Surgical Center abortion facility in Chicago, we were taken by surprise when Albany manager Diana Maracick angrily walked right through the middle of our prayer group on her way into the clinic.

Shortly afterward, four police cars arrived. Apparently, Diana had called the police because one of our sidewalk counselors, 64-year old Anna Marie Mesia, had been standing in the public alley adjacent to the Albany facility, talking to a client in the parking lot.

By this time the police arrived, Anna Marie had left the alley, walked past the prayer group, and was standing near the other entrance to Albany’s parking lot along Elston Avenue.

The police approached her, told her she was under arrest, ordered her to place her hands behind her back, and handcuffed her. In obvious discomfort, she was then placed in a squad car.

Her crime? Supposedly, Anna Marie had violated Chicago’s “bubble zone” ordinance.
