Yet another reason to get involved with
40 Days for Life
Friday, October 8th 7AM-7PM UWF Students for Life will be a hope-filled witness for life
Does 40 Days for Life work?
After four 40 Days for Life Pensacola Campaigns, the number of abortions has dropped:
- From about 2,700 in 2007 (the year 40 Days for Life began in Pensacola)
- To around 2,300 in 2008
- To about 1,800 in 2009
A 33% drop in just 2 years!!!

There are only three more days left of 40 Days for Life! Let’s finish well and try to come out one more time to pray! UWF Students for Life will be out there officially as a group this Friday at 7AM. If this doesn’t work for you, feel free to go out and pray at another time Friday, Saturday, or Sunday if you’d like… If you would prefer coming out in a group, bring some friends or check the 40daysforlifepensacola.com vigil schedule to see other times when other participants will be present.
Overall, two THOUSAND lives have been saved by the prayers and presence of all participants in 40 Days for Life! Not only that, but awareness about the reality of abortion has spread throughout the nation- transforming hearts and bringing people to healing. This is something to be celebrated! Come celebrate with us and many other pro-lifers this Sunday from 12-1. We will be having a “Jericho March” in front of the abortion clinic! Bring a home-made poster if you’d like- you can get ideas for signs online. Some I like are “All Human Life is Precious,” “Choose Life,” “Abortion hurts women,” “Adoption: the Loving Option”… The bigger the Jericho March- the better… come show your support for human life with us!
Lastly, we will have our second social this Wednesday at 6:30 PM in the Nautilus Chamber in the Commons. If you need help finding the Nautilus Chamber, the Help Desk downstairs can help. The theme for this social will be “Apologetics: Question and Answer.” Bring any and all questions you have every had about the pro-life movement. We will also watch a pro-life themed show episode from Law & Order to get our discussion going. Come, enjoy some snacks, fellowship, and interesting discussion!
Best regards and Happy Halloween!
UWF Students for Life members and many others will be coming out to pray for the unborn babies this Friday.
Friday at 5:30AM is when abortions are done at the 9th Avenue abortion clinic. This is the time when prayers and presence are most needed. Just imagine: you could save a life. You could touch the heart of a mother and help her to see how much love that we have for her and her child; that she doesn’t have to go through with the abortion (as parents or boyfriend or others have most likely pressured her to do).
Come and step outside of your comfort zone to help the voiceless unborn. At the least, you can say that you were there on their behalf the day they were rejected and killed; that you, you did not forget him or her. This is one of the most powerful experiences I have had in my life; to be a hero and stand in honor and love for the poor unborn children who will be killed and thrown in the trash.
If you are a Christian, just think: If you could have lived during the time of Christ’s passion, where would you want to be? At home, or at the foot of the cross? Every human being is made in the image of God, so when human beings are rejected and unjustly treated, it is the same as doing it to Jesus.
You do not have to be a Christian to bear witness to the precious unborn or to hold up a sign that has “ALPHA center (Pregnancy Resource Center) 479-3616 We Can Help!” and perhaps make a profound impact on that mother to save the life of her baby.
I prayerfully urge you to consider coming out to pray and be a presence for the children and the mothers. We had twins saved this past Friday and hope all the babies will be saved this Friday.
We are trying to get 30-40 people out there this Friday. Please RSVP at the Facebook event page or by email. All questions welcome!
