1 February 2002
On 1st February United Christian Action hosted a National Day of Repentance prayer meeting at Parliament in Cape Town. This was to repent from the national sin of abortion. Since the ANC legalized abortion on demand on 1st February 1997, over 200 000 babies have been killed by abortion in South Africa – legally.
Led by UCA Director, Dr. Peter Hammond (who had just returned from Sudan the day before) and UCA Communications Director, Robert McCafferty, the prayer meeting was also addressed by ACDP Member of Parliament, Cheryllyn Dudley.
