The Prayerful Warriors.
The San Antonio Coalition for Life was created after the National 40 Days for Life Campaign in 2007.
Faithful San Antonians dedicated 960 hours praying for 40 days straight in front of one of the local Planned Parenthood abortion facilities. The power of prayer, the positive impact on lives and most importantly the young lives that were saved made such a powerful impact that the San Antonio Coalition for Life was formed.
Every week, those faithful San Antonians are accompanied by a growing group who fight against the injustice of abortion in San Antonio. Through peaceful prayer, God continues to touch the lives of those who suffer.
Under God’s guidance we strive, with the help and support of the Greater San Antonio Christian community, to end abortion in San Antonio while connecting those who are post abortive to healing and reconciliation services and offering loving, truthful alternatives to abortion and are a resource for those who choose life. We stand peacefully and prayerfully in front of abortion clinics to provide sidewalk counselors to those in crisis pregnancies and witness the injustice of abortion to the public.
