There has never been a more exciting time to be pro-life...

...but there's also never been a more dangerous time to be pro-life, as we have witnessed unprecedented persecution of pro-lifers by the U.S. federal government.

Recently, the FBI--with guns drawn--raided the home of 40 Days for Life participant Mark Houck and charged him with federal crimes.

On this very important video blog, I share whether it is still safe to participate in a 40 Days for Life vigil, what actually prompted the FBI to come after Mark, and what pro-lifers do now:

More than a million people have participated in a local 40 Days for Life campaign, and Mark is the only one to be arrested by the FBI.

This country doesn't belong to a politicized and weaponized FBI; it belongs to you and to me.

Don't let fear deter you from doing what's right. Sign up to peacefully pray at your local 40 Days for Life vigil:

Waterbury, Connecticut

This fall marks the first-ever 40 Days for Life vigil in Waterbury--and it's already saved a mom and baby from abortion!

An expectant mother broke down in tears at the sight of vigil participants praying for her.

"She is three weeks pregnant and had an appointment for abortion," reported Kathy, the local leader. "We told her how precious she and her baby are."

The woman explained that she lives a hard life and feels alone. But Kathy and her team shared God's love--and promised to be there for her. They made good on that promise by taking the young mother to the local pregnancy help center.

"She [said] she doesn't want the abortion, and seeing us outside the Planned Parenthood made her stop and be honest about that," Kathy added.

Bronx, New York

"Praise the Lord, we had our midway rally at the abortion facility today," said Thomas in the Bronx. "Two different women said they did not abort their babies when I approached to offer [help] as they left the facility."

The banner day left Thomas in a festive mood. "This is one of the best days I've ever seen at this site, thanks be to God!" he exclaimed.

Who among all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this, in His hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.

--Job 12:9-10

Thank you, Father God, for being the Creator of my life and every life. Please give me, and the society in which I live, an appreciation for Your gift of life. Please help us set aside our pride and acknowledge that we need You. Show me how I can honor You today in response to all the blessings You bestow freely.
