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 stand on the corner of S. 16th Street and Hospital Plaza Dr. You will see a big sign for Kings Law Firm. They are closed, so park in that lot. Please stand on the grass between the sidewalk and the road, and do not block the sidewalk. 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 go to
Odibo Medical at 1099 Medical Center Dr, Suite 100-A. Medical Center Drive is the road directly across from the main entrance to the hospital. Walgreens on one corner and First Citizen on the other.

If nobody is standing and praying when you arrive for your prayer time, you will need to go pick up the signs to hold.
The signs are located in a large black portfolio behind the reception desk. Ask David at the front desk for them. Please be mindful that it is a business, so try not to draw attention to yourself. Take the black portfolio 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) to the site with you. I am praying there will be a steady flow of prayer warriors, covering every hour, so the signs will be there when each person shows up. If nobody comes when your vigil time is over, please return the portfolio and drawstring bag to the medical office mentioned above.
Make sure you look inside the bag so you know what to offer if anyone approaches.

Office hours are Mon-Fri, 9-5pm. They are closed on the weekends.

Whatever you borrow from the portfolio MUST be returned when you are done with your vigil hour(s), unless of course someone shows up to stand after you. 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!
