40 DAYS FOR LIFE PREVIEW: PHILADELPHIA WOMEN’S CENTER

We continue our 40 Days for Life preview series. The second vigil site is no stranger to every pro-lifer in the Greater Philadelphia area.

Philadelphia Women’s Center, which sits five floors above a daycare, accounts for 6500 murders a year. 90% of the victims are African-American.

In its 11th campaign, pro-lifers have stepped up their game. They overcame jeers from Heather, the security guard, one escort named Shawn resorted to violence last year against an elderly pro-lifer, but it got him into hot water and told to never return. They even overcame scare tactics from Lynne Molter, professor at Swarthmore University, who videotapes pro-lifers being peacefully present. In the end, pro-lifers have persevered from time to time.

The hour of operations are from Tuesdays to Saturday from 7 AM to 4PM. They are closed on Sundays and Mondays.

The campaign will run from Ash Wednesday (March 2nd) through Saturday April 9th. Bring a friend or two with you.
