This 40 Days for Life campaign kicked off with a rally in front of Planned Parenthood ? a building featuring a big pink banner with the words, ?health care happens here.?

Gerald Yeung, the local leader, told the group that God is always doing something good ? and it often involves 40 Days for Life.

Fr. Thomas Kallumady, pastor of St. John the Evangelist / Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Parish, thanked the attendees for witnessing to their?faith and their "love for the unborn and the living." ?Maria Teresa Rueda prayed in Spanish for God's protection over the unborn and their parents.

Sister Shirley Ann of the Sisters of Life prayed that God's mercy, grace and strength would "overtake every woman that comes to this Planned Parenthood."
