40 Days for Life Prayer Vigil
Wednesday, February 14 through Sunday, March 24th | 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Location: Walgreens | 1723 Broadway | Quincy, IL 62301
Good day to all volunteers for this second annual 40 Days For Life prayer vigil!! Our goal is to:
- pray in front of Walgreens to pro-actively pevent chemical abortions from coming to Quincy.
- pray to end abortion in our state, country and world!
Over half of abortions are chemical/medical abortions. We have to act immediatley in praying for our local Walgreens and CVS that are on the path to becoming the largest abortion providers in the USA. The abortion pill regimen is used to kill a child in the womb of their mother up to 11-12 weeks gestation. Walgreens and CVS corporations are waiting for their certification. Walmart, HyVee and Niemann Foods (County Market) corportions have not yet applied for this certification.
THIS IS A PRAYER VIGIL.
Local rules to follow:
Do not park in the Walgreens parking lot. Do not obstruct the sidewalk. Must pace/walk on sidewalk or sit/stand on grass area (Bring a chair). We are not allowed in the parking lot. Do not obstruct driveways. Do not approach anyone, but do say "Good Morning, afternoon" etc with pleasant voices. If a person wants to speak with us, only one volunteer should communicate. All else continue to pray. If harrassed, stay peaceful and do not engage. If necessary, call the police department.
