Hyannis Candlelight Vigil to Feature 40 Days for Life National Leader and Former Abortion Provider
World’s Largest Grassroots Movement to End Abortion
Hyannis, MA – Dr. Haywood Robinson, former abortion provider who is now the director of medical affairs & education of the international peaceful, prayerful, effective 40 Days for Life project, will tell the story of this groundbreaking effort in Hyannis on Saturday, Oct. 14. Robinson will speak at the Candlelight remembrance of aborted children, at 6 p.m. on the sidewalk at 1019 Iyannough Rd., Hyannis, Massachusetts.
Dr. Robinson has traveled the world sharing his testimony to expose the facts of the abortion industry and to be a voice for the unborn. “People in Hyannis have made extraordinary sacrifices to expose the abortion industry and to protect pre-born children and their mothers from abortion,” Dr. Robinson said. “I’m honored to be able to join these folks in prayer. Their efforts illustrate why we’re seeing historic changes – more mothers choosing life, more abortion workers experiencing conversions and leaving the abortion industry, and more abortion centers closing their doors for good.” Sheila Quinn, spokesperson for the local 40 Days for Life campaign in Hyannis, said, “We are tremendously pleased that Dr. Robinson will be here on Cape Cod to support our 40 Days for Life effort. He’s an energetic, enthusiastic speaker, and we know he will be an inspiration for all.” In addition to Dr. Robinson’s powerful story, the candlelight vigil will also include opening prayers by Father Michael Fitzpatrick, the singing of hymns, and a candlelight procession in remembrance of our brothers and sisters lost to abortion. Hyannis is one of hundreds of communities around the world conducting simultaneous 40 Days for Life campaigns from Sept. 27 to Nov. 5.
40 Days for Life is an intensive campaign that focuses on 40 days of prayer and fasting for an end to abortion, peaceful vigil at abortion facilities, and grassroots educational outreach. Since the first 40 Days for Life campaign took place in 2007, the staggering results include:
• over 23,600 mothers have chosen life for their children;
• more than 250 abortion workers have quit their jobs;
• over 140 abortion centers where 40 Days for Life vigils were held have gone out of business; and
• 1 million prayer volunteers, 20,000 churches and 9,207 local communities in 64 countries have held 40 Days for Life prayer campaigns.
