Birmingham is now conducting its ninth 40 Days for Life campaign. ?We had a record turnout for the kick-off,? said Isabel, the local coordinator, ?with 135 people. It was great to see lots of new faces.?

Isabel noted good support from evangelical Christians in the area as well as the continued support from the local Catholic seminary, with groups who pray for three hours each week at the vigil. Archbishop Bernard Longley, who has prayed outside the abortion center, again voiced his support.

?Considering the great support we are getting in Birmingham,? Isabel said, ?I fail to see how the abortion clinic can hold open its gates much longer to prevail against the continued prayers being faithfully offered on its doorstep.?
