Escanaba has joined with many other cities from coast to coast holding simultaneous 40 Days for Life campaigns from Sept. 25 through Nov. 3 - the largest internationally coordinated pro-life mobilization in history.
"We truly hope that this fall's 40 Days for Life campaign will mark the beginning of the end of abortion in our community," said Sue Tackman, who has coordinated the local 40 Days for Life effort.
40 Days for Life is a peaceful, intensive pro-life campaign that focuses on 40 days of prayer and fasting, 40 days of peaceful vigil at abortion facilities, and 40 days of 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.
