March 6 - April 14

Roanoke, VA United States

Take a stand for life

From March 6 to April 14, 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

Public right-of-way outside

Planned Parenthood
2207 Peters Creek Road
Roanoke, Virginia

Parking options for volunteers: You may park along Woodbridge Ave. NW, just south of Planned Parenthood off of Peters Creek Road. Also, you may park along the shoulder of Peters Creek Road across from Planned Parenthood. When parking there, please make sure you are not parked in the bike lane. Also, Westminster Presbyterian Church, located across from Planned Parenthood, has given permission for us to park along their driveway.

Rules according to our permit:
1. Use grass area between curb on Peters Creek Rd. and property line of Planned Parenthood for prayer vigil. (See map under Manage Resources)
2. Carry any signs in hands (I attach a small rope to the sign and wear it around my neck). No handles will be allowed or signs staked in the ground. (I bring my folding chair and attach an extra sign to the back of it with clips and that is allowed. But beware, if we try bringing lots of folding chairs and do this, I'm pretty sure this too will be taken away.)
3.Do Not enter Peters Creek Rd. or vehicular entrance/exit to Planned Parenthood to hand out flyers, etc.
4. Do Not park vehicles on vehicular travel lanes or bicycle lanes of Peters Creek Road.
