The 40 Days for Life kickoff at Glad Tidings Church drew a crowd of several dozen people, united in faith and conscience, to see an end to abortion in Lansing. The kickoff and candlelight vigil were held just blocks away from the WomanCare abortion facility.

They heard the story of a couple who remained silent about their own abortion for 22 years, but found healing through Christ's love at a Rachel's Vineyard retreat. Fr. John Byers helped conclude the evening by leading the group in prayer outside the abortion center.
