40 Days for Life officially began September 22 and runs through October 31.
In response to the joyful, hopeful message that 40 Days for Life brings, NARAL Pro-Choice Wisconsin has launched its own 40-day observance.
Taking a cue from Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin’s efforts to raise money off Pro-Life Wisconsin, NARAL is asking supporters to donate money in response to 40 Days for Life. Lisa Subeck, executive director of NARAL, sent the below email yesterday, September 27.
Where will this money go? To crisis pregnancy centers that help women by providing free ultrasounds, prenatal care, baby clothes, counseling, parenting classes and a supportive shoulder to lean on?
Nope. The money goes right into NARAL’s pocketbook. So Lisa Subeck can continue to write pro-abortion editorials like this one advocating for genocide in the womb.
NARAL’s desperate attempt to fundraise includes the “Forty 4 Forty” logo (above), which states “Pledging to end harassment… one picketer at a time”. What does this mean? What, exactly, is “one picketer at a time”? This is not “choice,” nor is it pro-woman nor pro-health. It is threatening.
During 40 Days for Life, the window shades at the Madison Planned Parenthood are shut, so the women waiting to see the abortionist cannot look outside. If Planned Parenthood cared about women and was confident in its message and mission, why the fear? Why make the abortion facility a dark, hopeless place? This simple change – closing the window shades so patients and workers cannot see the people outside praying for them – demonstrates the effect our prayers are having, more than we know.
Please – join 40 Days for Life today as we celebrate the joy of life and offer women love and hope outside Wisconsin’s abortion mills. If you can’t join us, keep us in your prayers.
40 Days for Life is observed in the Wisconsin area in Appleton, Green Bay, La Crosse, Madison, Milwaukee, Wausau and Rockford, Ill. For more information on locations and who to contact, go to the 40 Days for Life website.
