To the Editor:
As Campaign Director and Outreach Coordinator for 40 Days for Life: Plattsburgh, we would like to thank the prayer volunteers who have prayed for the end of abortion during the Spring 40 Days for Life Campaign located at Planned Parenthood of the North Country, NY.
Your prayerful presence makes a difference! Many women reject abortion because of the sidewalk counselors who provide information about positive options. After talking with the counselors, many women no longer feel afraid or pressured to abort. We believe the prayers of everyone united help give these woman the courage they need to say yes to life. Just this spring, 728 babies have been spared from abortion and their mothers spared from a lifetime of regret and loss.
Women in crisis pregnancies have a right to bring their child into the world by accessing life saving resources in our area: Plattsburgh Pregnancy Center, Birthright, Gabriel Project, Catholic Charities and Care Net.
Abortion after care programs are also available in the area: Project Rachel, Rachel’s Vineyard and Silent No More Awareness. There is help available, you are not alone.
We look forward to leading the Fall 40 Days for Life Campaign. Please check back for more information: 40daysforlife.com/plattsburgh
