The novena will run nine days, ending on Election Day, Nov. 7. The novena consists simply of saying a daily prayer prepared for this purpose.
“No act of violence claims more life than abortion, which kills some 3,500 children a day in America,” said national director Fr. Frank Pavone in a press release. “How can we build a society that feeds the poor if we can’t feed our own offspring; how can we welcome the immigrant if we can’t welcome our own children; how can we promote peace between nations if we cannot even maintain peace between a mother and her unborn child?”
Additional prayers have been composed for specific states that have important ballot measures related to abortion. The prayers are available at www.PrayerCampaign.org.
