40 Days for Life Honolulu Mid-Point Rally March 9

During this Lenten season, Honolulu is one of 167 cities worldwide participating in 40 Days for Life. A pro-life Christian prayer movement that crosses denominational lines, 40 Days for Life emphasizes three key elements: prayer and fasting, peaceful vigil, and public outreach to the community with pro-life education about why abortion must end.

Just five days into the current spring campaign, 45 unborn children have already been saved, and their mothers have been spared a lifetime of the physical, emotional, and spiritual pain that abortion can bring.

The Honolulu campaign will host a Mid-Point Rally on day 20 of the 40-day-long prayer cycle, which is Tuesday, March 9, at 5:00pm (rain or shine). Pro-lifers are invited to gather at the site of the campaign's public prayer vigil location outside Planned Parenthood of Hawaii, 1350 S King St, Honolulu (mauka side of King, 1/2 block 'ewa of Ke'eaumoku).

The gathering will be held on the sidewalk, outside the Title Guaranty building, where the abortion clinic is located. Bring a folding chair, water, jacket, umbrella, or any other gear you will need to be comfortable for the 90-minute outdoor event. Street parking is generally available along side streets near King, or on nearby Young St.

You are welcome to bring pro-life signs or banners, and as we anticipate the presence of children, we ask that you keep all visual displays respectful. No political signs, please.
