Twice a year, during Lent in the spring and again in the fall, international campaigns are held called 40 Days for Life. Prayer and fasting, community outreach, and prayer vigils outside abortion facilities have been held in 607 cities in 32 countries. The amazing results since 2007 include 11,165 babies saved, 127 abortion workers quit, 64 abortion clinics closed!
We PRAY FOR the women who are tempted…
… and give them a visible sign of hope as they approach the facility. We PRAY for the women who are already wounded by abortion…
… and give them a sign of mercy.
We PRAY for the workers at the clinic….
… and give them a sign of truth.
Our spring 2013 campaign resulted in the eviction of an abortionist from Sugar Land Medical Plaza, next to St. Luke's Hospital in Sugar Land. Dr. Yuri Nosaville had been conducting abortions at the facility in violation of his lease. He continues to do abortions at a different facility in Southwest Houston.
Christian Voices for Life participates in the campaign led by Houston Coalition for Life at the major Planned Parenthood facility at 4600 Gulf Freeway in Houston. Click on the address to see a map. See a more detailed map for clear instructions on how to proceed after exiting I-45 at Cullen. We actually stand on Gulfcrest, a quiet street where we can park right on the street.
