‘40 Days for Life' campaign to close Sunday

The 2013 “40 Days for Life” anti-abortion campaign ends Sunday.

One group involved with the global, community-based campaign will end it with a candlelight prayer vigil at 7 p.m. Sunday at Holy Innocents Chapel, 6114 NW 63.

The Rev. Stephen Hamilton, pastor of St. Monica Catholic Church in Edmond, will be keynote speaker.

Anti-abortion advocate Debby Krisch, 62, said Holy Innocents Chapel provides a year-round place of prayer for anti-abortion advocates.

However, the “40 Days for Life” anti-abortion initiative brought together metro-area churchgoers of different denominations for prayer vigils each day for 40 days outside clinics such as Outpatient Services for Women, 6112 NW 63, and Abortion Surgery Center, 2453 Wilcox St. in Norman.

The “40 Days for Life” campaign also had participation in Edmond, with vigils held near Planned Parenthood, 3431 S Boulevard, and in Tulsa, across from Reproductive Services, 6136 E 32nd Place.
