North American campaign director Steve Karlen traveled to Nebraska to greet and encourage volunteers at three 40 Days for Life vigils.

The Bellevue vigil (above) is outside infamous late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart's business. Carhart had been flying to Maryland to do late-term abortions at a facility that is now closed. He's reportedly added another business day each week in Bellevue as a result.

In Lincoln, the state's capitol, more than 100 people, including a number of religious education students and teachers, showed up to pray "at the biggest kickoff event they?ve had in years." After an hour of fervent prayer and song, the group gathered at a nearby church for a 40 Days for Life presentation from Steve.

Steve's final stop was in Omaha, where the vigil takes place outside a Planned Parenthood center. Pro-life efforts have strong support in the area around this 40 Days for Life location, with a pregnancy help center on the next block and a nearby church sporting pro-life signage.


With 40 Days for Life, David wears many hats. Prior to joining the 40 Days for Life team, he was an award-winning radio and TV journalist. He has also served as a board member for a pregnancy help center and as publications director for a major national pro-life organization.
