Robert Colquhoun, our international campaign director, just took part in the midpoint rally for the first 40 Days for Life campaign in Bavaria.

?I was really impressed with the campaign that they have there,? he said. ?Boris, the local leader, has filled his vigil well.?

The vigil is outside a referral office where women are issued certificates.

?Women must get a certificate in order to have an abortion,? he said, ?and I believe counseling centres must provide this certificate. It makes pro-life counseling very difficult.?

Nonetheless, it seems the referral office would prefer not to have a 40 Days for Life prayer vigil outside.

?They had placed up paper in the window to block out the view of the vigil,? Robert observed, ?and had also written ?a woman?s right to choose? in the first floor windows.?
