40 Days for Life Campaign

Pro-Life Advocates Nationwide Excited About Next 40 Days for Life Campaign

Washington, DC ( -- Pro-life advocates across the country are excited about the upcoming 40 Days for Life prayer campaign. The event, which takes place in communities and at abortion centers nationwide, doesn't officially start until this Wednesday yet thousands of people have already begun to get involved.

David Bereit, the head of the campaign, tells that he went to Indiana to meet with hundreds of people getting started at a kick-off rally. "Yesterday afternoon, I was blessed to join more than 200 people at the 40 Days for Life kick-off in Indianapolis -- which concluded with a two-mile procession to the Planned Parenthood abortion center where the campaign will be focused," he said. "I then drove up to Fort Wayne where 300 people packed a Lutheran school gymnasium for an electrifying kick-off event," he added. "At the end of the rally, the attendees collectively committed to hundreds of hours of participation in their local 40 Days for Life vigil."

Bereit says he is getting similar reports from other cities across North America and many locations are still gearing up for their kick-off events which will be held over the next three days. Full story at

We're campaigning here in Ottawa, Canada also! There is one abortion site in our city, founded by one of the "pioneers" of pro-abortion legislation in Canada, Henry Morgentaler. He was recently awarded our country's highest honour for his work, the Order of Canada. Since then, many past recipients have returned their Orders of Canada and there is a strong campaign to have Morgentaler's Order repealed. We are united with you in prayer!

In Christ,
