Fr. Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life, will help to kick off two opening rallies for the 40 Days for Life Campaign.
Both rallies will be held tomorrow. The first will be in Chicago in the morning and the second in Amarillo, Texas, in the evening. For the following 40 days, he and his pastoral team will travel to many other sites around the country where people will gather at local abortion centers to pray.
"Abortion will end when the people of God say so,” he said in a statement. “Now is the time for people of every religious and political background to join together to stop the killing. When we come out on the streets, we always win. Fewer babies die and more consciences are stirred to action, starting with our own."
The Silent No More Awareness Campaign will likewise be present at many of the sites. Silent No More gives women and men who regret their involvement with abortion an opportunity to share their testimonies at public gatherings.
