40 Days for Life starts TODAY in 377 cities around the globe...
...and today we are in uncharted waters as politicians calmly and coldly advocate for infanticide. It's unprecedented.
This is NOT the campaign to sit on the sidelines.
This radical onslaught against born and unborn children is a clear sign that Planned Parenthood and its allies are desperate. But it's also a reminder that our work is not done yet.
Matt Britton, Sue Thayer, and I recorded a new video to put the current state of the abortion crisis into historical perspective and to encourage YOU as you hit the streets these next 40 days. Watch the video in the player above or click here:?https://youtu.be/gIF7ruNEJz8
You CAN make a difference. Former abortion workers report that when someone prays in front of an abortion facility, the "no-show" rate for abortion appointments can go to as high as 75 percent!
Be that someone. Sign up TODAY to pray at the 40 Days for Life vigil closest to you:
40 Days for Life Updates
Las Vegas, Nevada
40 Days for Life Campaign Director Steve Karlen just visited the busiest late-term abortion facility in Las Vegas for the city's first-ever spring campaign.
It's a daunting location, and the facility built an eight-foot fence to inhibit sidewalk counselors. One of the center's abortionists has a disturbing record of complications--including a woman who died due to a "negligent performance of pregnancy termination."
"Las Vegas is known as 'Sin City'," Steve said. "But as Scripture reminds us, where sin abounds--grace abounds all the more."
Indeed, lives are being saved. A pregnancy center next door to the abortion facility recently celebrated its 30,000th baby saved from abortion, and the director told Steve that the campaign "definitely, DEFINITELY" makes a difference.
The opening kickoff event featured strong turnout spanning Christian denominations. About a third of the attendees said it was their first time getting involved in 40 Days for Life!
Campaign Strategist Chris Davis kicked off the campaign in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
The weather was cold, but spirits were high as Chris shared a personal testimony about his own pre-conversion crisis pregnancy. "I was 38, feeling that I should have known better," Chris said. "I show women on the sidewalk a picture of my son and encourage them that if I could choose life at age 38, they can do it at 28 or 18 or whatever age."
After speaking, Chris was approached by a now-elderly man whose crisis pregnancy came at 59 years old. He and his young-adult daughter attended the rally together.
Blow the trumpet in Zion! Proclaim a fast, call an assembly. Gather the people, notify the congregation. Assemble the elders; gather the children and the infants at the breast ? Let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep and say, "Spare, O Lord, your people." ?Joel 2:15-17
Lord, we ask for the strength, courage, wisdom, determination and stamina to carry out this mission according to Your will. Guide us, we pray, as we go forth and proclaim Your truth.
