In 2019, Planned Parenthood opened a large, regional abortion facility on Salem Place in Fairview Heights, IL. Coalition Life began operations on the sidewalk from day one, and in 2020, Coalition Life’s Pro-Life Community Center opened just across the parking lot. Coalition Life now provides the peaceful and prayerful witness of trained sidewalk counselors in front of this abortion facility during all hours of operation and remains committed to providing women with options, information and loving support that allows them to choose life. We welcome pro-life groups and supporters to visit the Pro-Life Community Center for prayer, to volunteer or to host bible studies or meetings in our offices.
Coalition Life coordinates the fall and spring 40 Days for Life prayer vigil campaigns in Fairview Heights each year. This fall’s campaign will be held September 28 – November 6. Because Fairview Heights has become a regional hub for abortion following the Dobbs decision, this location is now on the frontline of the fight for life. The pro-life community is responding with a powerful show of God’s healing power and grace.
This is the opportunity for all prayer warriors to publicly show that Fairview Heights stands for life. The prayer vigil will be held from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day. Churches and groups can adopt-a-day and provide prayer volunteers for all 12 hours or they can adopt a partial day. Individuals can sign up for one or multiple hours to be a witness for life by visiting our Vigil Calendar page. Join us at this critical moment in the fight for life.
