This fall, from September 24 – November 2 of 2008, the Rochester area community will be uniting with dozens of other cities across America – and around the world – for the largest and longest coordinated pro-life mobilization in history – the 40 Days for Life campaign. People of faith are praying that this effort will mark the beginning of the end of abortion.

40 Days for Life is a focused pro-life campaign that has generated measurable lifesaving results in more than 130 cities where it has been implemented. Some locations have reported as much as a 28% drop in local abortion numbers and hundreds of new people getting involved in local lifesaving ministry efforts.

The 40 Days for Life campaign is made up of three key components:

  • Prayer and Fasting: inviting people of faith throughout Rochester and Monroe County to join together for 40 days of fervent prayer and fasting for an end to abortion
  • Peaceful Vigil: standing for life through a 40-day peaceful public witness outside the localPlanned Parenthood at 114 University Ave.
  • Community Outreach: taking a positive, upbeat pro-life message to every corner of our Monroe County and through media efforts, church presentations, petition drives, and public visibility.
