The 40 Days for Life campaign will be launched Feb. 17 and run through March 28 in more than 160 cities in Canada, Australia and the United States.
Canadian locations will include Montreal, Toronto, Guelph, Edmonton, Red Deer and Kelowna. There will also be regular pro-life witnessing outside the Morgentaler abortion mill in Ottawa and Cabbagetown abortuary in downtown Toronto, although these are not 40 Days events per se.
Nicole Campbell, Campaign Life Coalition’s 40 Days for Life director, says that “our community will be uniting with dozens of other cities across North America for the largest and longest coordinated pro-life mobilization in history.”
The campaign, which has three key components – prayer and fasting, a peaceful vigil, and community outreach – has resulted in at least 2,168 saved babies, 26 abortion workers leaving their profession, and the closing of five abortion sites – and reduced hours in many more.
