KEPR-TV, the local CBS station, sent a crew to the Tri-Cities kickoff and noted the festive atmosphere included food, music and various speakers.

?This event was the start to 40 Days for Life ? a worldwide movement,? the station reported. ?The organizers say it's 40 days of prayer, vigil, fasting and community outreach to work towards ending abortion.?

?People will sign up for hour long slots and go and pray at Planned Parenthood as a peaceful and silent witness to end abortion,? said Karen Nyman, coordinator of the rally.

The report noted that 40 Days for Life has been going on in the Tri-Cities area since 2008 ? and observed that interest has picked up in the wake of Planned Parenthood?s recent spate of bad publicity.
