1) Ground Zero Report:
- Midpoint Announcement Rally: Sun. Oct.14, 7:00PM – 8:00 PM @ Ground Zero 65 Bank Street – Candlelight Vigil – Archbishop Prendergast to give a reflection, John Pacheco (Pro-Life Activist & Blogger), Doris G. (Helpers of God Precious Infants), Deacon Charles and Marcel Dion on Vocals! Come out for an awe inspiring event as we mark the Year of the Faith in the Pro Life Movement!
- 40 Days for Life Ottawa is in need of a proper sound system for this campaign and the remainder of the campaign. Since we are in this for the long haul, we need a decent sound system for our rallies and Scripture proclamation. We can also use it to lend to local pro-life groups and their events like the March For life and de-funding abortion rallies (like the one happening this Sat. Oct 13th at McGuinty’s office). Please donate if you can!
Be sure to follow the 40 Days Blog Reports from Headquarters here. Every day, there is a report of happenings all around the world!
Please be sure to send us your observations, reflections, and any other pertinent information you would like to share with the other 40 Days for Life Participants. Your identity will be kept anonymous.
Pictures: please also share any pictures of your experiences at Ground Zero with us, but PLEASE, when taking pictures, please be very discreet and expeditious. Take pictures of the vigilers only (with their permission). Never take pictures of our opponents (unless they are violent) or women going in for abortion.
2) Pro-Life News & Events:
- Rally at Dalton’s Place! Did you know that Ontario tax-payers currently pay $30-50 million every year towards the funding of abortions in our province through OHIP? Rallies are taking place across the province to protest against this misuse of our tax money on elective surgery that intentionally ends the life of an unborn child. Plan to attend the rally in your area. Campaign Life Coalition is organizing a rally at the office of Dalton McGuinty (poster attached), but a rally is also taking place at the Carleton-Mississippi-Mills office of Jack MacLaren. For more information call Campaign Life Coalition 613-729-0379 Defund Abortion Rally, Sat.
