BILLINGS -

Hundreds of people are expected to be part of a peaceful vigil in front Planned Parenthood in the heights over the next month.

40 Days for Life kicked off last week and runs until midnight November 3rd. The national and international event started in Texas several years ago to protest against abortion. This is the fourth year for the vigil here in Billings.

Mike Rapkoch, the Billings Campaign Director for 40 Days for Life says, "The purpose of 40 Days for Life is to be a peaceful, prayerful vigil in support of the life of everyone, of the children who are aborted at this clinic, to live freely in a nation of liberty and justice."

Mike says they're expecting between 300 and 400 people to take part in the vigil. He says they will have at least one person standing outside Planned Parenthood for the entire 40 days and 40 nights. If you would like to volunteer you can call 860-5553.
