West Virginians for Life (WVFL) has contracted to purchase the land across from the only abortion clinic in West Virginia. By purchasing the property, the intention is to honor and remember the thousands of little boys and girls that have been killed across the street.

The deadline to purchase the property across from the only abortion business in West Virginia, the Women’s Health Center, is December 31, 2021. The West Virginians for Life Kanawha-Putnam County Chapter took a leap of faith and entered into a three-month lease agreement that includes the first option to purchase the property by the end of the lease agreement at a cost of $199,000.

The property is being used to speak life to the abortion business’ patients, employees, and volunteers. It functioned as a safe gathering place and allowed for a pro-life presence during a nationally organized constant prayer vigil, which this year was held from September 18-October 31.

WVFL is asking West Virginians to pray about partnering with them in this urgent effort. According to Kanawha-Putnam County Chapter Leader Missy Ciccarello, “This is a spiritual battle.” God’s Battlefield is located at 600 Washington Street West. For more information, visit
