Clark County Right to Life

supports the 40 Days for Life campaigns in east Vancouver

Protect Life Youth Crusaders (and their parents) from St. James Church join in prayer at the vigil site in 2019.

We pray, fast and offer life-affirming alternatives to abortion from the public right of way on NE 116th Ave. one block north of Mill Plain across from PP abortion center.

Fall 2020 Campaign starts Sept. 23 (Wed.) & ends Nov. 1 (Sun.)

During this time of Covid-19 pandemic we are taking added safety precautions at our prayer vigil site on NE 116th Ave. Wear a face-covering, social distance 6 feet and no more than 5 people at a time. (You can always pray from your car.) 

Do not come to the prayer vigil site if you are over 65 yo or live with someone who is over 65 yo, have a pre-existing health condition or feel ill. 

Due to the pandemic restrictions we are using online scheduling "SIGN UP FOR VIGIL HOURS" at www.40daysforlife.com/vancouver 

Volunteers should concentrate on these daylight hours at PP Abortion Center (RU 486 chemical abortion on site and referrals for surgical abortion): Mon & Thurs 9am-4:30pm; Tues and Wed 11am-6:00pm; Fri 9am-3:30pm.  

Contact the local coordinator to obtain free handheld signs, buttons and handouts. Email gerry1968@q.com or text/call 360-831-7542 to order. Arrange delivery which will occur at the public vigil site on NE 116th Ave. All items are "new" and "not used before" and will not be returned. 

Sign rule: we will no longer place signs on stakes into the ground of the public right of way. (City of Vancouver regulation). We will continue to stand in the public right of way and hold our signs. Public right of way extends 10 feet from either curb away from the street. 

"No partisan political signs/personal wear items" continues to be the rule for the 40 Days for Life public prayer vigil.

Feel free to stay in your car or return to your car if you feel unsafe at the public vigil site. Call 911 just as you would in any other situation. Also let the local coordinator know what happened. 360-831-7542.

17,226 lives saved world-wide (and these are just the ones we know about) since 2007. Abortion centers closed 107. Abortion workers quit 206.

First Vancouver campaign in 2009 saw a couple change their plan to abort their baby when they saw our volunteers praying on the sidewalk. "My girlfriend and I have decided to give our baby up for adoption."

Hearts broken by abortion begin to hope and heal. In 2017 a lady told us about her abortion over 20 years ago. Our response: “We grieve for your loss.” She said: “No one has ever said that to me before.” We prayed with her asking our heavenly Father to forgive and heal us. Then she thanked us for praying for her baby (we had never mentioned her baby) and took our packet of literature with post-abortion healing information inside.

We rely heavily on the prayers and sacrifices offered by many at home, work and school. Our at-home prayer warriors may benefit from the prayer resources found at www.40daysforlife.com

A special word for those unable to come to the public prayer vigil due to covid-19 restrictions: Schedule prayer time on your "usual vigil day". At home or at church (some churches are open during the day). Make it a special time and be confident the good Lord is hearing your prayers and answering them in His good time.



Everyone who participates in this campaign will be asked to sign the Statement of Peace . (Once is sufficient.) If this Statement does not reflect your approach, please refrain from joining our volunteers at the Prayer Vigil Site during the 40 Days for Life campaign hours. Thank you. 

We offer our Local Pregnancy Resource packet to customers and passersby at the Prayer Vigil site.

 

RIP Father Ron Wasowski, CSC, who passed away in December 2016. He taught environmental science at the University of Portland. He was a faithful supporter of 40 Days for Life speaking at many closing ceremonies. And he spoke up for life at the University of Portland. His obituary HERE. His student newspaper article HERE


 Due to Covid-19 restrictions there will be no prayer vigil signups after Sunday church services for this fall 2020 campaign.  
LET US PRAY THAT CHURCH SIGNUPS WILL ONCE AGAIN BE POSSIBLE FOR THE SPRING 2021 CAMPAIGN WHICH BEGINS FEB. 17 (WED.)
