September 28 - November 6

Charleston, SC United States

Take a stand for life

From September 28 to November 6, 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

Vigil location is:
Public right-of-way in front of
Charleston Women's Medical Center/Abortion Mill
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!

Rosary with Fr. Shenan J. Boquet

Recognizing prayer is the most efficacious action we can perform, Fr. Shenan J. Boquet will lead vigil participants Saturday morning in a Rosary to close this and all abortion facilities. Please join us, "For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them..." (Matt 18:20) because, "...[Jesus] said to them, “This kind can only come out through prayer." (Mk 9:29)

40 Days for Life UNITED - 50 States in 40 Days

This brief visit by David Bereit and/or Steve Karlen, our leaders, is the last leg of a 40 day whirlwind tour of 50 States in 40 days. When we meet & greet our sojourners they will have already visited 47 States and visited 121 cities out of 128 in 37 days.

They may be exhausted so we must bolster their stamina by welcoming them with a great crowd.

This event occurs on the last Friday of the Fall 40 day campaign. Please plan to attend this highly unusual event. You won't be disappointed.

Location: Corner of Ashley River Rd. & Fuseler Rd. For more information call Alex at 843-810-7517.
