Germantown, Maryland

Andrew, the local leader in Germantown, was reflecting on something one of the guest speakers said at a 40 Days for Life rally.

“George, one of our faithful prayer warriors, shared his story with us,” Andrew said. “He concluded by encouraging everyone to not grow weary of standing up for the lives of unborn babies.”

“We need to have as much zeal and determination as LeRoy Carhart,” George said. He was referring to the notorious abortionist who lives in Nebraska but travels to Maryland to perform late-term abortions.

“That struck me,” Andrew said. “Do we have as much zeal and determination as Carhart? He flies in every single week – rain or snow – to end the lives of these children. We need to remain steadfast in our prayer and fasting for an end to abortion.”
