Pro-life activists are challenging a German municipality’s decision to ban them from praying in front of a pre-abortion advisory center.
Members of the 40 Days for Life in Pforzheim, southwest Germany, are taking the challenge to a national court.
Pavica Vojnović, who has led prayer vigils outside the Pro Familia advice center, said: “I want to be there to pray, not for myself, but for the vulnerable women contemplating abortion, and for their unborn children.”
“This topic really touches my heart, as I know the pain of losing a child. Our society must offer better to mothers in difficult situations. Every life is valuable and deserves protection. Surely a simple prayer for the vulnerable cannot be banned?”
David Bereit founded 40 Days for Life in 2004 as a local pro-life advocacy group in Bryan-College Station, Texas. The group has grown into an international organization, holding Christian campaigns of prayer and activism to end abortion.
