Steve Weatherbe on 40 Days for Life: ‘We need more vigil keepers. Please come but sign up first on our website:\victoria … bring friends!

YOU can help save lives!

This fall, from September 28 – November 6, VICTORIA will be one of many cities joining together for the largest and longest coordinated pro-life mobilization in history — the 40 Days for Life campaign.

40 Days for Life is a focused pro-life effort that consists of:

  • 40 days of prayer and fasting
  • 40 days of peaceful vigil
  • 40 days of community outreach

We are praying that, with God’s help, this groundbreaking effort will mark the beginning of the end of abortion in VICTORIA — and throughout Canada.

Take a stand for life

While all aspects of 40 Days for Life are crucial in our effort to end abortion, the most visible component is the peaceful prayer vigil outside the local abortion facility.

You can help make a life-saving impact by joining our local vigil at:

Vancouver Island Women’s Clinic
#104-284 Helmcken rd.
Victoria B.C.

First day on The 40 Days for Life vigil:

some problems with View Royal

 We had a good day at the vigil, starting at 6 am with three people, swelling to four then a dozen by 8:45 when Father Dean Henderson led a prayer and blessed the group.
The excellent (and wonderfully cheap) 40 Days for Life banners arrvied from the US in the nick, and tomorrow we will have signs saying:
“Pregnant? Want Help?
Call 250-818-2164.”

With a discontinous roster of vigilists, we have been casting about for a place to cache the banners, signs and brochures during blank periods on the roster.

One of the early a.m. vigil keepers, Shirley Sloan, volunteered (or maybe agreed willingly when asked?) her house a half mile to the north.

Thank you Shirley.

I don’t even know if we will need Shirley’s home; we are looking for something closer.

If someone had a car they could leave parked near the clinic, where the material could be deposited during the day, and that person ferried to the car to drive it home?

We haven’t figured this out.

A bylaw enforecement officer with a chip on his shoulder tried to take our banner because we had tied it to a sign post.

This is definitely against the bylaws, but his action seemed arbitrary and was resisted by Peter S., Ann R. and Alex Berns.

It seemed to Alex the man had his back up from the outset because he blamed us for the graffiti, which was clearly pro-choice and not pro-life.

Joe of Joe’s Cafe is willing to cross the bubble zone and bring out orders of coffee and other stuff phoned in.

Meanwhile, pro-abortion types spray painted their graffiti and feminist symbols all over the sidewalks and some parking lot walls and Joe’s windows.

Police photographed these and interviewed us about them.

CIVI and the Goldstream Gazette interviewed me about the vigil.

A nurse from the clinic offered to place our brochures in the clinic if we would go away (please).

A woman walking near the clinic asked what was up, came over, confessed to an early abortion (and three subsequent healthy boys) and wished we had been around way back when to dissuade her.

She plans to join the vigil.

Lighthouse Christian Academy has agreed in principle to participate.

St. Andrews Catholic High School and Pacific Christian High School don’t even answer my phone calls.

The news from Columbia Missourri is that their abortion clinic shut down four days ago.


We need more vigil keepers.
