40 Days for Life Peoria Vigil Information

National Health Care
7405 N. University St.
Peoria, IL 61614

Hours of operation:

The clinic is open one weekday per week
- one Wednesday per month-either the 1st, 2nd or 3rd,
- the rest of the weekdays are Thursdays, 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month
Women seeking abortions start arriving as early as 7:30 a.m.
Abortionist usually arrives around 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, 10 a.m. on Wednesday
and Thursday.
Women start to leave the facility about 1 1/2 hours after the abortionist arrives if they are having an abortion that day, unless we think they have come for a check-up, maybe a post-abortion check or an RU-486 appointment (the medical form of abortion). Then they will leave sooner, or the people leaving could be their family and friends who have come to be with them in the waiting room.

What to expect:
Sometimes there are signs showing aborted babies – harsh pictures but they make
people face the reality of what’s going on inside the abortion mill
Some people will honk, yell obscene things or make obscene gestures
Some people will honk or wave to show support
Sadly, most people do nothing
…and sometimes someone comes out and says “they didn’t do it” and a life has been saved because someone cared enough to be out there trying to help!

Where to park:
At the Chicago Grill (right next to the abortion mill) – The owner has given up permission, they are supportive of our efforts, please patronize them

1) No violent/abusive behavior (physical or verbal) – this is only a peaceful demonstration
2) No harassing people going in/out of the clinic– just reach out in love
3) Always have at least 2 people present at the abortion mill preferably at least 1 man present from 6:00 p.m. through 7:00 a.m.
4) Stay off of the property (you can only be on the sidewalk or on the grass between the sidewalk and the street)
