40 Days for life is a powerful, prayerful, positive pro-life presence in front of Planned Parenthood. This facility does chemical abortions and is near San Diego State University with their clients typically being young adults.
As for our prescence, statistics show that canceled appointments are likely with even 1 person outside praying (we will shoot to have at least 2 people per hour). We are not there to shame the people or the staff of planned parenthood; our presence is to be a reassurance that we are praying for them and will do our best to support their choosing life!
40 Days for Life takes place during the Fall, September 28 through November 6th. We are asking for volunteers to fast and stand vigil by praying, waving, and holding signs for 1 hour a week for 6 weeks. As for fasting, please do what you can, any sacrifice is helpful! Finding shelter at your place of worship before or after is recommended as there will be emotions that one experiences from being out praying. We will provide some materials, including some to hand outs to those who walk in.
Please contact Christian Cordon for materials and questions. Again, we reccomend at least 2 people for each time slot as a practical matter of safety and having someone always praying to support while speaking with the men and women. This is going to be a 12 hour vigil so the avaible hours will be from 6am to 6pm Monday through Saturday for 40 days. Although as a campaign, we will take Sunday off, but you are welcome to go out then as well if you feel called! It takes place in front of the Sarah Weddington Planned Parenthood abortion mill 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!)
