Things looked bleak for the pro-life movement in December of 2008. The most pro-abortion president in history was about to take office after running on a promise to wipe out all federal, state, and local abortion restrictions.

The University of Wisconsin decided to exploit the situation by secretly plotting to open up a late-term abortion center on the UW campus. But God had other plans. 

On this week's episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, Shawn Carney interviews Steve Karlen about his new book, This is When We Begin to Fight, which describes:

  • How God used a grassroots band of pro-lifers to battle the most powerful institution in the State of Wisconsin
  • Why miscarriage matters in the battle to protect children from abortion
  • Steve's baffling discussion with a pro-abortion shock jock at 5 o'clock in the morning

Tune in, and then order Steve's book at or on Amazon
