COLUMBIA — The 40 Days for Life campaign is starting Tuesday with a rally and a candlelight vigil. This is the sixth year for the anti-abortion campaign in Columbia.
A group of mid-Missouri people who are against abortions will participate in an opening rally that will take place at 6 p.m. at the First Assembly of God Church, 1100 N. Seventh St.
Following the rally, participants will move to the sidewalk in front of Planned Parenthood, 711 N. Providence Road. Participants will be holding battery-operated candles.
The vigil will start at 7:30 p.m. and continue until 8:30 p.m. Campaign Director Kathy Forck said she expects about 75 to 100 people to participate.
The campaign will run from Wednesday to April 1.
