Guam – As part of the ongoing debate on abortion, pro-life advocates will open the lenten season with a prayer rally in front of a birthing center in Tamuning tomorrow.
The Lenten Prayer for Life, which will run throughout the entire 40 days of lent, will be staged in front of Sagua Managu on Chalan San Antonio Road.
Maria Mafnas, event organizer, explained how the movement all got started.
After taking the initiative to reach out to her parish members by passing out fliers in her congregation, her efforts were rewarded when word reached the Archbishop who authorized the islandwide distribution of the fliers.
Currently, there are no doctors on Guam who perform abortions. So why the prayers and why in front of Sagua Managu? According to Mafnas, their mission continues because abortion is still legal on Guam and the Tamuning birthing center allegedly advocates for abortions.
Those who would like to join the group in their prayers may reach Maria Mafnas at 797-9251 or the Catholic Pro-Life Committee at 477-4569.
