Have you heard about this?


Near where I live, they've been conducting a 24 hour, 40 day vigil in front of an abortion clinic. It isn't confrontational; they mostly just pray the rosary. I don't even think they have signs. Our archbishop has even gotten involved.


It isn't my cup of tea, so I haven't been involved, but the great news is that it has made a difference. Women are actually changing their minds and deciding against abortion. One woman who was planning to have an abortion found out she was carrying twins, and then decided to keep them.

Yes, the children and I dedicated an hour vigil outside Louisiana's "most productive" baby slaughter house in New Orleans before we left for South Dakota.

Yes, we pray the rosary peacefully with police escort in front of the abortion mills.


There is a sweet little old lady that prays it EVERYDAY on the sidewalk every day except wed and sunday as they are closed sunday and no murders are done on wed.


Our bishops join us as well as the priests and other demoninations.
