Pro Life rally planned in Salem March 8

Dr. Haywood Robinson

Dr. Haywood Robinson, former abortion provider and director of medical affairs and education of the 40 Days for Life project, will tell the story of the effort in Salem on March 8.

Robinson will speak at the Salem 40 Days for Life Grand Opening Rally, which is set for 3 to 4 p.m. at Planned Parenthood, 3825 Wolverine Street NE, Salem. 

40 Days for Life is an intensive campaign that focuses on 40 days of prayer and fasting for an end to abortion, peaceful vigil at abortion facilities, and grassroots educational outreach. Since 40 Days for Life began, 16,742 mothers have chosen life for their children; 196 abortion workers have quit their jobs; and 106 abortion centers where 40 Days for Life vigils have been held have gone out of business.

Salem is one of over 500 communities around the world conducting simultaneous 40 Days for Life campaigns from February 26 through April 5. 

Robinson is a former abortion provider who has participated in numerous campaigns throughout the world—including across the United States and Africa.
