I just visited the 40 Days for Life vigil outside the largest abortion facility in the Western Hemisphere--the 78,000 square foot facility in Houston.

These mega abortion centers are a recent trend for the abortion industry.

Built in secret, Planned Parenthood’s latest mega abortion facility opened last week in Southern Illinois.

Though daunting for pro-lifers, these facilities reveal cracks in Planned Parenthood's abortion empire.

On this week's episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we discuss how many of Planned Parenthood's mega centers exist because the abortion giant--no longer welcome in local neighborhoods--is being forced to consolidate.

Listen to the podcast by visiting:


You'll learn:

  • What abortion mega centers reveal about a crumbling abortion industry
  • Why massive Planned Parenthood buildings can be uniquely vulnerable to peaceful pro-life prayer and activism--in spite of their fortress-like appearance
  • How to respond if a mega facility opens in your community

Tune in and learn how Planned Parenthood's latest strategy can backfire--and actually hasten the end of abortion!

Lives are being saved and communities transformed--even in front of the most imposing abortion facilities.

Denver, Colorado

"This Planned Parenthood is like a fortress, so it's rare to have one-on-one interactions with the people coming and going," said Lee Ann in Denver.

But prayers are still being answered.

Recently, a woman stopped in front of the vigil site, rolled down her window, and told volunteers, "Because of you, I have my daughter."

She then rolled down the vehicle's back window, revealing a blonde girl with braces, a big smile, and a friendly wave!

Aurora, Illinois

Construction in the area has repeatedly forced the Aurora team to move its vigil site to avoid dust, dirt and noise. But the prayer warriors aren't complaining.

That's because, when the work is done, one of America's largest abortion facilities will have a new neighbor: a pro-life pregnancy help center.

"Wednesday is typically a busy day with lots of surgical appointments," said Catherine, who co-leads the campaign. "But it was extremely slow. Hoping our prayers are being answered!"

St. Paul, Minnesota

40 Days for Life Director of Medical Affairs & Education Dr. Haywood Robinson visited a campaign midpoint rally...IN THE SNOW!

The vigil participants' endurance in the cold paid dividends when a mom and daughter headed for Planned Parenthood stopped to talk with a sidewalk counselor.

Upon learning that the local pregnancy center provided free ultrasounds, they skipped their appointment at the 46,000 square foot Planned Parenthood facility!

God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him, male and female He created them. And God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves upon the earth."

Genesis 1:27-28

Father of mercy and grace, we thank you for the gift of our children. Grant that every fiber of our being may rejoice when a new baby, our own or any else’s, is born into the world. Help us to welcome them as we would welcome you, for whenever a new baby is conceived, another life to bear your image and another voice to praise and worship you, is beginning.
