PLEASE ADOPT-A-DAY WITH YOUR FRIENDS OR FAMILY MEMBERS: We need courageous leaders who are willing to recruit a group to fill a 7am-7pm vigil day. This is critical in order for us to make this LIFE-SAVING MINISTRY as effective as possible! Please contact the vigil leaders with questions. We can answer questions, provide all necessary resources, and even come out to your parish or church to help recruit vigil volunteers. Please contact Joe Lazar (847)309-0360.
40 DAYS FOR LIFE IS OPEN TO PEOPLE OF ANY FAITH OR DENOMINATION WHO
WISH TO BEAR WITNESS TO THE SACREDNESS OF HUMAN LIFE!
I am the Faith Network Leader for Vision 2020 Cook County, a grassroots effort to combat the abortion epidemic in the Chicagoland area through church engagement. If you have prayerfully participated in a 40 Days for Life vigil in the past, then I want to wholeheartedly thank you for being a part of the growing movement, which is determined to put an end to the havoc, which the abortion profiteers have created, not only for defenseless children, but also for mothers, fathers, families, and communities.
If you haven't participated, then I'd like to leave you with two things to consider. If an abortion center was instead a gas chamber, such as those used by the Nazis to exterminate millions, would we feel differently about doing something? If our culture feels differently about these two things, then perhaps we need to ask why we feel differently. The abortion industry has terminated several times more innocent lives than the Nazis did.
Secondly, I'd like to point out that while our culture has portrayed abortion as a matter of a woman's choice, in reality, it is actually about how every person chooses to value every human life. As an Assyrian Christian, whose family immigrated from Iraq, I can speak to the cost of silence in the face of evil. Our ancestry has endured three documented genocides during the last century, due in part, to the world's unwillingness to take action. You may be the one person who is most needed in your church and in your community to bear witness to the sacredness of human life. Please join the ranks of thousands who have prayerfully stood as witnesses for truth through 40 Days for Life. WITH RESPECT FOR ALL HUMAN LIFE!
