In a year filled with tension, it seems that the judicial version of Mother Teresa has been nominated to the Supreme Court.

Judge Amy Coney Barrett is a universally respected jurist, accomplished legal scholar, committed Christian known for her kindness, and mother of seven children (two of whom she adopted from Haiti).

But the abortion industry doesn't celebrate feminism; it celebrates abortion. It is their sacrament, and, therefore, they're already waging war on Amy Barrett and her family.

On this week's episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, 40 Days for Life General Counsel Matt Britton joins us to discuss:

  • The outrageous attack abortion supporters have already leveled against Judge Barrett
  • The Harvard law professor who disagrees with Judge Barrett on everything--and still says she deserves to be confirmed
  • What her confirmation would mean for Roe v. Wade

Listen in by visiting:

Boulder, Colorado

The Boulder team holds vigil in front of one of the most notorious third-trimester abortion facilities in the country.

40 Days for Life participants there honored the memory of children lost to abortion by visiting the Memorial Wall for the Unborn--the final resting place for 5,500 babies who lost their lives to abortion.

Archbishop Samuel Aquila visited the vigil site and told prayer warriors that their presence brings him great hope. "We know that there are women who have previously worked in centers like this...who have had strong conversions,” he said.

Orange, California

Fr. Alan led a candlelight vigil in front of the massive Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Orange.

While praying for an end to abortion, he also shared his vision that every baby lost to abortion is "prayed for, loved, and not forgotten."

Local leader Kristina said Fr. Alan is an inspiration. "The love he has for the precious little ones touches the hearts of all who attend the Masses, prayers and vigils he leads."

Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he fell into the hands of robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. So, too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him.

—Luke 10:30-34

Father, we are moved by the lesson of the Good Samaritan, who allowed compassion to influence him more than fear. Give us the same heart. Grant that we may never count the cost of standing up and speaking out for the unborn.
