Prolife prayer vigils are often dominated by the presence of dedicated and deeply committed women sharing hope and alternatives with mothers who feel trapped into no other option having their unborn babies killed at an abortion center.

With acts of violence, vandalism and intimidation on the rise against peaceful prolife advocates across the nation, the need for men to join in prayerful solidarity is critical.

Contrary to what pro-abortion activists claim, the pro-life struggle is not merely a women’s issue. It impacts the entire human family. We need fathers, sons, brothers, uncles and grandfathers standing in solidarity with the reliable army of generous and compassionate women.

In Anchorage, 40 Days for Life advocates are currently praying outside of the largest Planned Parenthood abortion mill in the state. It’s not enough to merely offer friendly honks or thumbs up. Being prolife does not consist in simply entertaining prolife thoughts or private, internal sentiments. It involves concrete actions.

To be clear, these vigils are entirely peaceful and legal. They entail prayers and holding signs that say, “Pray to end abortion.” Participants are literally offering a lifeline of hope right outside one of the darkest and most degrading corners of our state. Joining this cause is the least a self-professing pro-lifer can do.

40 days for life continues through Nov. 6. For all the details on how to participate, click here.
