Taking a stand for their beliefs by simply sitting down. That's what pro-life advocates will do, for the next 40 days and nights, in front of Planned Parenthood's Sioux City office.
They call it the "largest and longest international pro-life mobilization".
The gathering kicks off the 40-day campaign from September 26th to November 4th.
Organizers hope rallies, like these, help spread their message.
Justin Frato of the Diocese of Sioux City said, "With the election coming up, and while "40 Days for Life" is certainly non-partisan, we do stand for life. We definitely have people that are interested in that. As Catholics, we are Catholic and Christian, and we do make up a large part of the voting block, so that will be an issue that we are interested in in this election."
