Stand up for Life
Apostolate started on: September 2004
We are called to defend human life from the moment of conception until natural death. To proclaim a Gospel of life.
Mission of the apostolate: To pray to end abortion, to pray for those contemplating having an abortion and the conversion of those working in the abortion clinic.
What do we do: We gather on the 3rd Saturday in front of an abortion clinic in Akron, OH in prayer and peaceful demonstration for respect for human life and end of abortion. We provide expectant mothers with information and telephone number of agencies that can be of assistance to them. We reach out to them in a respectful and unjudgemental manner. We provide also information on post-abortion counseling.
