March 6 - April 14

Wilmington, NC 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
1925 Tradd Court
Wilmington, NC 28401

Please note: The permit does not allow us to stand in front of the Planned Parenthood (PP) facility, because it is private property, so we have to go up the driveway to where we enter the complex where 16th &17th Streets comes to a point at that juncture and Hospital Plaza Dr. All traffic to the PP clinic has to drive past us – there is no other way to get to the clinic.

Their hours of operation are:

Mon Closed
Tues 1:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Wed 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Thurs 1:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Fri 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Sat 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Sun Closed

Signs and drawstring bag:
If you need a sign, please stop at Ave Maria Family Practice, 1230 Medical Center Drive, very close to the vigil sight. When passing vigil sight on your right side, it's approximately 3 roads down, turn right at Walgreens and go down less than a 1/4 mile, Ave Maria on left. The signs are located in a large black portfolio behind the brown couch in the waiting room. Please be mindful that it is a business so try not to draw attention to yourself. Take a sign and the drawstring bag, which has literature to give a mom or literature on how to get out of this sort of work for a PP employee. Other items are inside; promo items, etc...
Check it out so you know what to offer if anyone approaches.

Ave Maria is usually closed on the weekends.

Whatever you borrow from the portfolio MUST be returned when you are done with your vigil hour(s). Please do not take home ~ others will need it. There will be a yard sign as well if you want to post while you stand or pace back and forth. The metal posts for yard signs are at the bottom of bag. Please return! If you leave sign there, someone will take and discard it.

Thank you so much for standing, praying, and being a huge part of putting an end to abortion!

Proverbs 31:8 says:
"Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, ensure justice for those being crushed."
God bless you for doing just that!
