The 40 Days for Life vigil in Vancouver takes place outside a Planned Parenthood center in a small shopping center. This facility is becoming more and more isolated; it is practically surrounded by empty storefronts with ?for lease? signs in their windows.

One morning recently ? the Planned Parenthood office was vacant as well. ?I arrived about 7:30,? said Ed, the local leader in Vancouver. ?Usually, the Planned Parenthood staff arrives about the same time.?

But on this day, a small sign was posted on the door: ?Sorry for the inconvenience, but our health center is closed.? The sign listed shortened office hours later in the day

?We are hoping and praying hard that this is an indication that they might be considering closing this facility permanently,? Ed said.
