Pro Life Campaign Comes to the Capital City

Jackson, MS – “We truly pray that this 40 Days for Life campaign will mark the beginning of the end of abortion in Jackson,” said Judy Batson, who coordinates the local effort. “We will start our campaign with a rally at Jackson Women’s Health Organization at 2903 N. State St. on February 10, 2016 at noon.”

 Jackson is one of (number) cities from coast to coast conducting simultaneous 40 Days for Life campaigns from February 10 through March 20. “We start this effort by drawing members of the community together to share the vision of 40 Days for Life and to pray for God’s blessings on this effort. It is time to focus attention on the harm abortion has done to our city,” said Judy Batson.

 Speakers at the 40 Days for Life kickoff event include: Opening prayer: Pastor Jay Barfield of Immanuel Presbyterian Church in Clinton, Keynote Speaker, Mavis Buckley of Freedom 517.

 “This will mark the start of 40 days of prayer and fasting, with special attention to prayer in the public right-of-way outside the abortion facility at Jackson Women’s Health Organization at 2903 N. State St., as well as various types of community outreach. We look forward to seeing what kind of transformation God will bring about in our city,” said Judy Batson.

 All prayer vigil participants are asked to sign a statement of peace, pledging to conduct themselves in a Christ-like manner at all times.

 40 Days for Life is a peaceful, intensive campaign that focuses on 40 days of prayer and fasting, 40 days of peaceful vigil at abortion facilities, and 40 days of grassroots educational outreach. The 40-day time frame is drawn from examples throughout Biblical history where God brought about world-changing transformation in 40-day periods.
