As of March 22, 40 Days for Life International sent out a letter officially canceling the PUBLIC VIGIL aspect of the 40 Days for Life prayer campaigns around the world. You are still able to
pray from home.
It is a sad reality that Planned Parenthood is still open.
However, Gov. Greg Abbott issued an executive order that is calling for all elective procedures to stop or be postponed until after April 21st. Abortions are considered elective procedures.
So no elective procedures (including abortions) should be done in Texas through at least April 21st. Otherwise there is a fine and potentially jail time in place.
What is 40 Days for Life?
During this Spring 40 Days for Life, Houston Coalition for Life is uniting with the Office of Pro-Life Activities of the Archdiocese of Galveston Houston in leading this peaceful prayer campaign for an end to abortion. The prayer campaign lasts from Feb 26 - April 5, 2020!
To find out more information on this legal, peaceful, prayerful event, contact: Clare Houston Coalition for Life: 713-395-1330
Also you can sign up through the 40 Days for Life calendar!
If you to be counted among those praying from home, please contact Theresa@houstoncoalition.com
NOTE: Some people will still be coming out to pray individually, separate from 40 Days for Life. Since our city is not undergoing a "stay in place order," we ask you to please spread yourself and not pray in groups. And sign the Statement of Peace and email it to Clare@houstoncoalition.com
The most vulnerable among us are innocent, defenseless unborn human beings. These babies have no voice. Their pain, their anguish and their cries are silent. They depend on us to SPEAK UP! They depend on us to ACT in defense of their lives.
This is a unique opportunity to share the pro-life message up to the last possible moment with those entering the Planned Parenthood abortion facility. Get involved year round in 40 Churches for 40 Days and other prayer vigils by staying up to date with our calendar and Facebook.
