May 5th is a day of prayer & fasting

Our friends at the 20/20 Project are asking people to pray and fast this coming Friday, May 5, 2017 for the success of the 20/20 Project. 

The 20/20 Project is an ecumenical movement embracing members representing many religious denominations.  It is actively supported by a number of organizations including the Respect Life Office of the Archdiocese of Metuchen, the Respect Life Office of the Archdiocese of Newark, Project LEARN, the New Jersey Family Policy Council, New Jersey Right to Life, the Center for Garden State Families, Corazon Puro, LifeNet, the League of American Families, among others. 

The goal of the 20/20 Project is to pass legislation to address the scientific fact that unborn babies are pain-sensitive at 20 weeks.  Every other country on earth recognizes this fact except North Korea, China, Vietnam, Singapore, Canada, and the Netherlands.  Senator Steve Oroho is the prime sponsor of the "Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act" legislation(S-2026) in the State Senate, while Assemblyman Parker Space and Assemblywoman Gail Phoebus have co-sponsored companion legislation (A-3452) in the State Assembly.  Similar legislation has been passed in 16 states and 2017 has been designated as the year of the big push to bring our laws into line with the rest of the civilized world. 

The 20/20 Project's goal is to get 165 people who care deeply about the babies in the womb who are in such peril to pray and fast this coming Friday. 

On April 10, 164 people prayed and fasted for the 20/20 project and right after that SOMETHING BIG HAPPENEDA NJ State Senator became the first bill sponsor from the majority (Democrat) party. 

This is critical, because we must have bi-partisan support in order to be successful.  And this is a bill that everyone can support!

This month 20/20 will be praying specifically for the members of the Assembly and Senate Health Committees.  The bill must be released from committee before it can come to a full vote.  If a committee does not act on a bill, it is equivalent to killing the bill.  So getting the majority of these Health Committee members (in both the Assembly and the Senate) on board to protect these 20-week babies is essential.

Please email Christine Flaherty at and let her know if you are willing to pray and fast for the success of the 20/20 Project.

Remember... prayer works!
