They held the third annual kickoff candlelight vigil near the Miramar Family Planning Associates office tonight. There was a turnout of around 50 to 60 people. Speakers included Trippy Seelig, coordinator for San Diego/Miramar, and Roger Lopez, husband of Sue. 40 Days for Life of San Diego County now includes three areas, San Marcos, Miramar, and now the El Cajon clinic where we've had vigils on Fridays and Saturdays. There were a couple of prayers to end abortion and for the closing of that abortion mill, and a rosary procession. I was able to get a couple of sponsors for the upcoming Lifewalk October 29 at Mission Bay. The next pro-life event will be the Life Chain.
