40 DAYS FOR LIFE - Sept.23 - Nov.1 2020
For too many years, The Falls Church Women’s Healthcare Center, 900 S. Washington Street, Falls Church (Rt. 29), has existed in our neighborhood. It’s a benign sounding business until you look behind the curtain. Even though they advertise gynecological services, their main revenue producer is abortion, surgical and the abortion pill. This clinic, five minutes from The Falls Church Anglican, kills over 1,700 babies a year.
On July 1, 2020, new Virginia laws took effect which eliminate all basic health and safety standards in abortion facilities, allow nurse practitioners and nurse midwives to perform abortions, eliminate informed consent prior to an abortion, including an ultrasound before performing an abortion, and remove the 24-hour wait period between the ultrasound and the abortion. Tragically, these bills will ultimately increase the number of abortions performed in Virginia and subject women to even greater harm.
TFCA Anglicans for Life will participate in 40 DAYS FOR LIFE from Sept. 23-Nov. 1. Our teams will be on the sidewalk outside the clinic praying and encouraging clients to consider other options to abortion. Please consider joining us (at least once) to lend your prayers to close this clinic. Parking is available on Marshall Street, 1 ½ blocks from the clinic.
Tuesdays: 9:30-10:30am, Wednesdays: 10:00-11:00am, Saturdays: 8:30-9:30am
If you do not wish to be a sidewalk witness, consider “adopting” one of the witnesses to pray for him/her. We covet such faithful praying, as it plays a necessary part in saving babies and preventing the moms and dads from future grief.
Please contact Becky Cooke at firstname.lastname@example.org or 703-403-8424 if you would like to join us on the sidewalk or to pray from home. We have pro-life signs and literature available. You can also use www.prayforlife.org to create a profile (affiliation is The Falls Church Anglican) and schedule when you wish to participate in 40 DAYS FOR LIFE.
COME and be a part of what God is doing in Falls Church – either on the sidewalk or at home petitioning the Lord on others’ behalf.
