Can you spare an hour to pray in front of a Planned Parenthood or other abortion facility during the 40 Days for Life that starts tomorrow on Ash Wednesday?
I took it upon myself to look into this for our right to life group here in Gallia Co., Ohio. We had our monthly meeting last night, and I presented the information I had gathered and suggested Columbus for our destination (closest abortion clinic to us—2 hours away one way!).
My suggestion was enthusiastically received, and now I am going to check into coming up with a time frame that would be feasible for many of our group to travel up to Columbus during the 40 Days campaign. My daughter (almost 15) has volunteered to go with us. She recently went with me to Washington for the March for Life and has been inspired to do more.
For many of us, making this trip is not easy due to distance (I guess not having an abortion clinic nearby is a plus if you think about it), but I am considering it part of my Lenten journey towards pushing myself out of my comfort zone in a spiritual sense.
