Pro-lifers pray the Way of the Cross on Good Friday at Planned Parenthood, Aurora, IL [Photo by Matt Yonke]
For the last seven years, the Pro-Life Action League has called on pro-lifers to join in a “Way of the Cross for Victims of Abortion” on Good Friday at their local abortion facility.
This year, the event drew record participation with services held in 45 cities in 25 states!
We at the League have always found this service to be a great blessing and an anchor of our Holy Week reflections, so we’ve been thrilled to see others around the country sharing this experience.
The service offers prayers for everyone involved in the abortion industry, from clinic workers and doctors to abortion-bound women and their families, as well as for pro-life activists, sidewalk counselors, prayer partners and supporters, all tied together with the remembrance of Christ’s life saving passion and death.
Our service at Planned Parenthood’s megacenter in Aurora, Illinois drew over 150 people and others drew great crowds as well, including 2,700 in St. Paul, Minnesota, where the Good Friday vigil has been a longstanding event.
