-- From "For 40 days, protestors pray at Planned Parenthood" by Nathan Bergstedt, Grand Rapids, MN Herald Review 10/9/12

As part of the nationwide 40 Days for Life movement, local anti-choice activists have gathered outside Planned Parenthood in Grand Rapids. Throughout the 40 days, which last from September 26 to November 4, the prayer vigils are being conducted each Monday throughout October during business hours at the Planned Parenthood office.

According to local organizer Marlene Rowe, the main purpose of these demonstrations is to “pray to end abortion in our country.”

Around 1 p.m. on Monday, despite the dreary, drizzly weather, three protestors marched back and forth in front of the clinic’s office off of Hwy 2 on the west side of town. Holding signs that read “Abortion Kills Children” and “Jesus Forgives and Heals,” they quietly paced on the public space by the street so as to not trespass on the Planned Parenthood property. They did what they could to stay out of the way, and they are not allowed to talk to patients unless approached and asked questions.

Locally, for the second year in a row, members of numerous different churches in the greater Grand Rapids area have joined together to have a presence outside Planned Parenthood.

From "Campaign provides students opportunity for prayer" by Jackey Tamez, Staff Writer, Houston Baptist Collegian 10/25/12

Every Wednesday between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m., Students for Life members gather in front of a Planned Parenthood as part of the 40 Days for Life campaign offering advice and information on alternatives to abortion.

“Our goal is to encourage women to not get an abortion,” [sophomore Nicholas] Van Cleve said.

Their efforts are not futile. Van Cleve said that during the week, one woman decided to keep her baby after listening to the ultrasound.

However, Van Cleve said Planned Parenthood staff members do try to interfere with the counselor’s efforts. For example, if the sidewalk counselor has been talking to someone for over five minutes, a staff member will drive up behind the car and start to honk in order to get the car to move.

From "341 babies saved from abortion" by Shawn Carney, 40 Days for Life Campaign Director, 10/22/12

With two weeks to go in this 40 Days for Life campaign, we are so far aware of 341 babies saved from abortion!


There was a long line waiting to get into the abortion center. As one of the young women waited, she could hear the sung prayer of the 40 Days for Life vigil participants. She said that the song stuck in her head.

When she got inside and talked with the staff, she asked for an ultrasound. Once she saw the baby, she realized she simply couldn’t go through with the abortion.

After she walked out, she spoke to vigil participants. “She said she really never wanted to see the place again,” said Julie, one of the volunteers. “I don’t blame her! Thank you to all of you for your continued presence at Planned Parenthood. A life was saved today!”

From "Three abortion workers quit" by Shawn Carney, 40 Days for Life Campaign Director, 10/26/12

[As for the 40 Days conclude] abortion center staffers … ask themselves the question, “What good do I really do here?”

During this campaign, we’ve had reports of three abortion center employees who have left their jobs — and a few others are thinking about it. In the majority of these cases, the stories will remain confidential.

When former Planned Parenthood director Abby Johnson experienced a conversion, quit her job and walked into my office at the Coalition for Life next door, she lost not just an income but close personal friends. These workers will experience the same. So please keep them in your prayers as they transition out of the abortion business and find hope and healing.
