Letter to the Editor: No abortions in Downey

Dear Editor:

I've recently decided to help 40 Days For Life put the Family Planning Associates on Firestone Boulevard out of business.

From Sept. 27 through Nov. 5, the pro-life community will take part in 40 days of prayer and vigil each day from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. I hope that some of you will join me in volunteering hours in prayer, on public property, just outside of this evil organization located at 8635 Firestone Blvd.

40 Days for Life has proudly saved a minimum of 13,305 lives and converted 154 abortion workers to quit their jobs. Since 2007 this wonderful organization has shut down 86 abortion clinics. Let's make Family Planning Associates in Downey the 87th.

Downey's conservative history cannot possibly allow baby-killing factories to operate here any longer. This factory happens to be located less than a quarter mile from Downey High School, where my daughter attends. 

Signing up for vigil hours is very simple: go to 40daysforlife.com/local-campaigns/downey/.
