Since 2007, Pro-Life prayer warriors have been taking part each spring and fall in the peaceful, prayerful vigil known as 40 Days for Life. You can take part in this worldwide mobilization to pray and fast for an end to abortion!
In our area, it all starts with Montgomery County Right to Life’s 40 Days for Life Kickoff Rally! On Saturday, September 21st, we will meet at 10:15 am on the grassy esplanade in front of the Planned Parenthood facility at 4747 Louetta Rd. We will pray and sing to a Big God and Expect Big Answers!
Our guest speakers, Kirk and Cameron Barker, have a compelling story that affirms the important work we are doing during 40 Days for Life and year round. In 2002, Kirk’s wife, Chassidy, became very ill during her pregnancy with Cameron. After losing 40 pounds in 4 weeks, with no remedy for her illness, her doctor told her that she would die if she did not terminate the pregnancy. Feeling as though she had no other option, she decided to follow her doctor’s advice.
As Kirk and Chassidy approached the abortion facility, they passed two peaceful prayer warriors, one holding a sign with a picture of a baby in the womb. Though physically and emotionally moved, they entered the building and were given paperwork to complete. However, as Chassidy began to fill out the intake forms, she was overcome by the weight of her decision. Unable to sign her child’s life away, she told Kirk, “I don’t care if I die, I can’t kill our baby.”
The prayerful presence of people who cared meant the difference in life and death for their son, Cameron, who was miraculously carried to term and born perfectly healthy! Though unable to thank the people there that day, the Barkers now pay that deed forward through their ministry, Cameron’s Chance Pro-Life Advocacy, which is dedicated to helping people contemplating an abortion or who have had an abortion. They created this video as a tribute to the loving stranger who prayed for them that day and to encourage others who pray outside abortion facilities around the world. Kirk Barker is also a speaker for Save the 1, a ministry dedicated to a 100% Pro-Life stance, even in the “hard cases” of rape, incest, special needs, or a difficult prenatal diagnosis. Cameron, who is now a 16 year old young man, has begun speaking with his dad and will share his thoughts at the Kickoff. Please bring your teens to meet and hear Cameron.
The moment that a mother walks into an abortion clinic is a critical one for both her and her child. You will not want to miss this story of God’s love and healing power as you prepare your heart to be there for them during this 40 Days for Life.
This fall’s campaign will run from September 25th through November 3rd. During this time, we trust God will add to the proven results we have seen in 24 coordinated campaigns:
- 16,004 babies saved from abortion
- 190 abortion workers converted
- 100 abortion centers closed
