The idea behind 40 Days for life is to provide a prayerful, peaceful, positive pro-life presence in front of the Planned Parenthood. When my peers, college students at SDSU, get pregnant and decide to have an abortion, this is where they will go. Statistics show that several women cancel their abortion appointments if they see even 1 person outside praying (we will shoot to have at least 2 people per hour).
40 Days for Life takes place during the Spring, September 22th - October 31st. We are asking for volunteers to stand vigil by praying the rosary, other prayers, waving, and holding signs for 1 hour a week for 6 weeks. We will provide some materials, including some to hand outs to those who walk in. We reccomend at least 2 people for each time slot as a practical matter of safety and having support while speaking with the men and women seeking services. This is going to be a 12 hour vigil so the avaible hours will be from 7am to 7pm eveyday for 40 days. It takes place in front of the Sarah Weddington Planned Parenthood located at 4575 College Ave near the San Diego State University Campus.
We ask that you sign the Statement of Peace either electronically or in person with one of us. In conjunction with 40 Days for Life, this is a MUST for all volunteers. (Please see it under resources!)
