40 Days for Life/Chandler Kick-Off Rally


Our 40 Days for Life Kickoff Event for Fall 2012 will be held on Sunday, September 23rd from 3:00 to 4:00 pm, at Harmony Hallows Park, located behind the Planned Parenthood Offices on Alma School Road.

Harmony Hallows Park
1082 W Galveston Street
Chandler, AZ 85224

Opening Prayer Vigil

We are pleased to announce that we will have a guest speaker from Silent No-More, and a guest speaker from the Hope Mobile at our Kick-off Event. They will share with us the work they are doing to help repair the lives of individuals wounded by abortion, as well as in saving the lives of the unborn through counseling and technology. Please set this time aside to join us. Everyone is invited to picnic with their families in the park and spend time with fellow participants. We will provide water and snacks.

We are praying in thanksgiving that, by God's grace, abortions will no longer be performed at the Planned Parenthood facility in Chandler. Please join us, not only for the kick-off, but in prayer during our 40 day vigil. We have much to be thankful for this year, but there is still much more we need to pray for.

Today, we received this report from the Center for Arizona Policy:

Abortions Drop 8% in Arizona Year to Year   

1,173 fewer abortions performed August 2011-July 2012, compared to August 2010-July 2011

The latest statistics from the Arizona Department of Health Services show an 8 percent decrease in abortions performed in Arizona year to year. Thanks in part to the growing pro-life movement in the state, there were 1,173 fewer women harmed by abortion, and fewer pre-born lives lost in August 2011-July 2012 (13,538) compared to August 2010-July 2011 (14,711).


Our Fall 2012 Campaign begins Wednesday, September 26, 2012 and ends Sunday, November 4, 2012. Our prayer vigil will take place at the following location:

Planned Parenthood
Chandler Health Center
610 N. Alma School Road
Chandler, AZ 85224

We are asking churches throughout the area to participate in Adopt-A-Day. Adopt-A-Day is simply one church taking ownership for keeping the twelve hour vigil with their congregants for one day with two or more people praying together for each hour. Pastors and church leaders are invited to come with the members of their congregation to lead them in prayer for the unborn. Those interested in Adopt-A-Day can contact Jose Calzadilla at our website address.

Individuals, families, church groups, bible studies, men’s and women’s groups and other church related groups can take hours of prayer. Help us to continue praying not only for the unborn, but for those who staff the facility and those who continue to use the services of Planned Parenthood in Chandler. We must pray until the doors are closed and every mother and child is safe.

We have every morning of our 40 day vigil covered and some of our afternoons; we are still looking for other groups or individuals to join us in prayer.  To locate your church time, please go to our web site and check out the "local news" page.  If you would like to become a church liaison, please contact me directly.  We continue to pray for God to bless us with 40 Churches for 40 Days!

Those needing additional information on pregnancy support or abortion support or counseling, should also check out our links page, which is listed at the top of our web site.

Thank you and God bless!!
