On April 7-8, 2009, the prayerful and educational event «Preserve the life of unborn children of Ukraine!» took place in the Lviv Region. With the blessing of Reverend Archbishop Ihor (Voznyak) of Lviv, the pro life movement organized prayers in the gynecology centers of the Lviv Region in which abortions are performed. The representatives of different communities and organizations prayed together for conceived but not yet born children. They prayed also for parents, doctors, and government representatives - on all of whom depends the preservation and defence of human life at the initial stage of its development.  The action was supported by the Institute of Marriage and Family Life of UCU and the Main Administration of Health Care of the Lviv Region. The representatives of the Mothers in Prayer movement, the Society of Ukrainian Catholic Students Obnova (Renewal), the Association of Catholic Doctors, the Christian Families movement, Christian Ukraine, Ukrainian Youth for Christ, Marian sodalities, monastic orders, parochial communities, together with priests and students of Holy Spirit Seminary in Lviv visited more than 20 medical institutions in the city of Lviv and the region. Medical workers also participated in the joint prayer. "On the day when the Church celebrates the Feast of the Annunciation, the Most Holy Mother of God unites people of good will to witness to the truth about the Gospel of her Son, who is the Gospel of Life not only for every Christian but also for the Ukrainian nation, for all humanity." So noted Mr. Petro Husak, director of the Institute of Marriage and Family Life of UCU.
