Our mission is to pray for an end to abortion, for the clients going into the facility and for the workers there. We carry peaceful and helpful signs to educate the public and clients about the truth behind conception and life. We also reach out to clients and workers, offering assistance in exploring life affirming options, available resources (like free ultrasounds), and where they can access free services to help them choose life or seek other employment.
We currently have a presence every Thursday (pill abortion days) and one Wednesday a month when they do surgical abortions. Twice a year intensify efforts by expanding to six days a week. To go directly to the Mount Vernon page: 40daysforlife/mountvernon.com
