Abortion supporters are willing to kill defenseless babies, so we shouldn't be surprised that they're willing to lie.

With an Iowa law protecting unborn babies once a heartbeat can be detected tied up in the courts, a recent Associated Press article on the legislation cited supposed medical professionals who claim unborn children don't even have hearts at six weeks' gestation.

Abortion advocates will say whatever it takes to bring down pro-life laws...so pro-lifers need to be prepared to cut through the pro-abortion distortion.

On this week's episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we dismantle the argument that unborn babies don't have heartbeats PLUS seven more lies the abortion industry tells to keep abortion legal:

Paris, France

There has never been a 40 Days for Life campaign in France--until now!

For years, pro-lifers thought that holding a vigil in France was illegal.

But Parisian pro-lifers have been working with authorities and the police to organize a peaceful and law-abiding presence.

"The long-awaited, first-ever French 40 Days for Life [campaign] has finally started!" said Adrian. "On Ash Wednesday, the first brave volunteers started praying in front of the Hôpital Cochin, chosen for the number of abortions that are committed."

Adrian added that the hospital appears to be the largest in the country that performs abortions.

Columbia, South Carolina

A large crowd showed up in Columbia for a bilingual prayer vigil led by a local priest.

"Huge turnout today," said Maureen, the local leader. "There were a lot of first-time attendees, and it was an opportunity to recruit people to sign up for our campaign."

And he said to them, "Why were you looking for me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father’s house?" But they did not understand what he said to them. He went down with them and came to Nazareth, and was obedient to them; and his mother kept all these things in her heart.

--Luke 2:49-51

Lord, we trust that you are always with us even as we encounter the mysteries of life, both great and small. Please give us the grace to accept your will for our lives, especially in the moments when we cannot fully understand how your plan will work together for good.
