Right to Life of Southwest Indiana Promotes 40 Days for Life


SOUTHWEST, IND. (September 27, 2022) – Right to Life of Southwest Indiana (RTLSWIN) is sponsoring the 40 Days for Life Prayer Vigil, an internationally coordinated 40-day campaign that aims to end abortion locally through prayer and fasting, community outreach, and a peaceful all-day vigil in front of abortion businesses. A celebratory kickoff will be held at 6:00 pm on September 27, 2022, at Memorial High School.  The Fall Campaign will commence on September 28 through November 6, 2022, with prayer partners standing and/or walking in front of Planned Parenthood on Weinbach Avenue in Evansville.

“We have been blessed in Southwest Indiana that many of our residents support life,” said Mary Ellen Van Dyke, Executive Director of Right to Life of Southwest Indiana.  “Those who support life and participate in these peaceful prayer vigils give voice to those who are voiceless – the preborn.”

The prayer campaigns to end abortion occur twice a year with Southwest Indiana’s Fall Campaign last year being the largest gathering ever with approximately 350 people participating.  To sign up to be a prayer partner for the 40 Days for Life go to the RTLSWIN web site athttps://www.40daysforlife.com/en/evansville or call 812-474-3195.
