Jim Olson was the founding board chair for 40 Days for Life. He's also a retired CIA spy. And he's back for part two of our special interview with him on The 40 Days for Life Podcast. 

In this episode, Jim shares:

  • His memories of the day the Supreme Court handed down the Roe v. Wade decision--and the heartbreak of fighting evil in the Soviet Union as his own country sanctioned the evil of killing unborn children;
  • How his faith sustained him as he departed for missions he might not return from;
  • The thrill of stealing Russian secrets in the heart of the Soviet Union;
  • The importance of staying focused and not giving into cynicism amidst setbacks and challenges.
