Monica Seifker is in charge of the 40 Days for Life Organization which prays and councils young monthers as they come to the abortion clinic in Bloomington. Monica, Dale and her Family have worked at this for many years as she saves one baby at a time from abortion. In the presentation of the award Kavanaugh spoke of Monica and her Family’s untiring efforts in good and bad weather as they pray and do their best to save these young victims from abortion. Kavanaugh also spoke of the abuse they take from this college town but it has not altered their desire to keep trying to save the little ones. In accepting the award Monica spoke of the joy of being able to save lives but that day she lost one she had hoped to save and it was very hard on her and she almost did not come to the banquet because of it. The Award was a total surprise to the Seifker family as several members from the area were in attendance that go to the abortion clinic to help Monica in this special endeavor. Monica & Dale Siefker have six children and she also home schools all the children. The oldest son of the family will soon study to be a priest and the oldest daughter will take her final vows as a nun this December.
