From England comes more evidence that a peaceful, prayerful vigil has a distinct impact on the consciences of those who favor and promote abortion.

BBC News is reporting on a pro-abortion group?s effort to ban a 40 Days for Life vigil from the public pavement outside Queen?s Medical Centre in Nottingham.

Nottingham Pro Choice alleges the peaceful prayer presence is ?intimidating? to women and approaches abortion from a ?patronizing standpoint.?

The local volunteers know that these assertions are fiction, and noted that if there was any misbehavior outside the hospital, it was brought by those who want to shut down the vigil.

John, the local 40 Days for Life coordinator, said the volunteers have had ?some great interactions from people who wanted to know more about us.?

?We believe this is a good place to raise awareness about the issue of abortion,? one 40 Days for Life participant told the BBC.


With 40 Days for Life, David wears many hats. Prior to joining the 40 Days for Life team, he was an award-winning radio and TV journalist. He has also served as a board member for a pregnancy help center and as publications director for a major national pro-life organization.
