Forty Days for Life campaign to end abortion coming to Quincy starting Feb. 14


QUINCY — Forty Days for Life, a peaceful prayer outreach, is coming to Quincy beginning Wednesday, Febr. 14, and runs through March 24.

In a press release, Colleen Maalouf, coordinator of the local campaign, said, “We are eager to join together with people of faith and conscience from 600 cities from coast to coast, and beyond, to pray for an end to abortion. We want to prevent the abortion industry from coming to Quincy. Many people aren’t aware of what is going on in the abortion industry, with chemical abortions making up the majority of all abortions and Walgreens and CVS corporations actively pursuing to become the largest abortion providers in the country. We will share the facts with as many people as possible during the 40-day campaign.”

The campaign will feature a peaceful, 40-day prayer vigil in the public right-of-way outside of Walgreens on Broadway between 17th and 18th Streets. All prayer vigil participants are asked to sign a statement of peace, pledging to conduct themselves in a Christ-like manner at all times.

This non-denominational initiative focuses on 40 days of prayer and fasting and peaceful vigil at abortion facilities and now at pharmacies that have chosen to become abortion providers. The 40-day time frame is drawn from examples throughout Biblical history.

“40 Days for Life has consistently generated proven life-saving results,” said Shawn Carney, 40 Days for Life’s president. “During 60 internationally coordinated campaigns, more than 9,000 communities have taken part. The efforts of more than 1 million people of faith have made a tremendous difference. More than 24,000 mothers have chosen life for their children, more than 232 abortion workers have quit their jobs and 148 abortion centers where 40 Days for Life vigils have been held have gone out of business.”

“We’ve seen what 40 Days for Life has accomplished elsewhere,” Maalouf said. “It is our prayer that this campaign will help end abortions before they begin in our dear city of Quincy.”
