The following photographs were taken on Sunday, October 23 in Kalamazoo Michigan. Pro-life Christians came together as one voice to pray for the unborn and for mothers and families and to awaken the church to vote against Proposal 3. The event was advertised as "Prayer in the Park." Several Protestant and Catholic churches participated. It is estimated that 3200 people attended the event.
