Carson City, Nevada – On Saturday, October 20, 2012, the “40 Days For Life” Fall 2012 campaign will hold a “Youth For Life” rally across from the Planned Parenthood facility at 1201 North Stewart Street from 12 noon until 2 PM. 40 Days For Life Reno-Tahoe co-coordinator Carol Marie says, “It is the youth who face the prospect of their friends coping with an unexpected pregnancy and the decisions that come with such a realization. Our young people need to be confirmed in their appreciation of the value of life before they find themselves in a conversation where they don't know the right words to say to help someone make a decision that will affect the rest of their life.” Young adults from several denominations are expected to attend.
While staffers at the Carson City Planned Parenthood do not perform surgical abortions, they do provide chemical abortifacients such as the “morning-after pill” RU-486, which can be administered as late as 9 weeks along. Planned Parenthood is the leading provider of abortion in the United States and works to promote the abortion agenda around the world. Members of 40 Days For Life are holding a prayerful and peaceful vigil across from the facility on Mondays from 11 AM to 7 PM, Wednesdays from 11 AM to 3 PM, and Thursdays from 9 AM to 5 PM (the times when it’s open) through Thursday, November 1. The Carson City campaign ends with a closing prayer rally at the same location on Saturday, November 3 at 10 AM.
About 40 Days for Life
40 Days for Life is an innovative pro-life project that includes 40 days of prayer and fasting, peaceful vigil at abortion facilities, and grassroots educational outreach. The 40-day time frame is drawn from examples throughout Biblical history where God brought about world-changing transformation in 40-day periods, as well as the Christian season of Lent. Since its inception in College Station, Texas in 2004, nearly six thousand babies have been spared abortion, 69 abortion workers have left their jobs, and 24 abortion sites have closed. 40 Days For Life now involves Carson City, Reno, and 315 other locations in 6 countries, and has taken place locally since 2007.
