From March 1 to April 9, our community will take part in 40 Days for Life … a groundbreaking, coordinated international mobilization. We pray that, with God’s help, this will mark the beginning of the end of abortion in our city — and beyond.
Vigil location is:
Public right-of-way in front of
Charleston Women's Medical Center/abortion facility
1312 Ashley River Road
Charleston, South Carolina 29407
(Corner of Ashley River Road and Fuseler Road).
Please park in the grass along the side of Fuseler Road, as close as possible in front of the pink, white, and blue 40 Days for Life truck.
Parking is allowed in the One Carriage Lane parking lot at night (6 PM to 6 AM) but NOT during working hours on the weekdays (Monday to Friday 6 AM to 6 PM). At night and on the weekends, you may park in the One Carriage Lane lot on the side closest to Ashley River Road, but not in the spaces directly in front of the buildings. If you park directly in front of the Carriage Lane buildings (any time day or night), you will be towed.
The abortion facility:
There are two sets of yellow lines on the driveways of the facility. You may not cross the second yellow line or you will be trespassing. Please also do not obstruct anyone’s passage on the street or in the driveway. And be careful! Stay to the side of the driveway as cars often whip in and out of there quickly. Make sure that any signs you carry do not obstruct the view of anyone leaving the parking lot, and do not leave chairs or signs unattended in front of the building.
Feel free to hand out literature to vehicles entering or leaving the parking lot. Just follow the common sense rules of (1) not stopping vehicles in the roadway, and (2) not blocking traffic.
Thanks for cooperating with these guidelines!
