40 Days of Life Kickoff Rally

40 Days of Life Campaign

This spring, from February 25th – April 5, 2009, Toronto will be uniting with
dozens of other cities across North America – and around the world –
for the largest and longest coordinated pro-life mobilization in
history – the 40 Days for Life campaign. People of all Christian
denominations are praying that this effort will mark the beginning of
the end of abortion, 24 hours a day.

40 Days for Life is a non denominational focused pro-life campaign that has
generated measurable lifesaving results in more than 200 cities where it has been implemented. It has lead to a significant drop in abortions on almost
all locations, and in some places such as the State of North Dakota to
the closing of all abortion clinics.

The 40 Days for Life campaign is made up of three key components:

Prayer and Fasting: inviting people of faith throughout
our city to join together for 40 days of fervent prayer and fasting for
an end to abortion (This is a spiritual battle, and some demons can
only be driven out by prayer & fasting)

Peaceful Vigil: standing for life through a 40-day
peaceful public witness outside of an abortion facility *Toronto
Location is on the corner of Lawrence/
Dufferin (960 Lawrence)

Community Outreach: taking a positive, upbeat pro-life message to every
corner of our city through media efforts, church presentations, petition drives,
and public visibility

A kick off rally will be held at St. Michael's Cathedral, Toronto, on
Sunday 22 February, 4 pm.  Let's show Toronto that the abortion issue
is not settled and will never be until the preborn have the same right
to life as the postborn, and that abortion harms not only the preborn
child, but all involved, and the entire community.
