Florida Abortion Clinic Closes After "40 Days"

PENSACOLA, Florida, NOV. 8, 2009 ( A Florida abortion clinic closed Oct. 30, just as the 40 Days for Life prayer vigils being held at the site were drawing to an end.

The clinic was facing a state fine for an expired license.

The facility had been the site for three "40 Days."

“There had been an abortion clinic in that location for 25 years,” said David Bereit, national director of 40 Days for Life. “People have prayed there that abortions would cease, and it was during the fall 40 Days for Life campaign -- the peaceful, prayerful presence of faithful Christians -- that it was finally announced that this facility, where untold numbers of unborn children perished, was closing.

"That is not just a coincidence. God works in mysterious ways, and this is indeed an answer to prayer!”

This is the fifth closure of an abortion facility that has been the site of a 40 Days for Life vigil.

The local coordinators of the vigil did not know that the facility closing was made official Friday, Oct. 30, the 38th day of the 40 days.

They arrived as planned for prayer on Saturday and Sunday; the closing notice appeared in Monday’s newspaper.

Sisters of Life

Here is an excellent website for any and all interested in the pro-life cause. The Sisters of Life are a religious order than began in New York City under the authority of Cardinal Jon O'Connor (RIP) in the 1980's. Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders. As a result, these wonderful women are moving beyond the boundaries of NYC and have opened a convent in Toronto. Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join
