40 Days for Life
Another abortion facility has closed its doors ...
... and the location may surprise you.
We’ve just learned that an abortion facility in Great Britain – where the overwhelming majority of all abortions are paid for by the government – has gone out of business!
The BPAS location in Leamington Spa had been the site of seven 40 Days for Life vigils …
… including the campaign that just ended last month.
This is the 71st abortion center to close its doors following a 40 Days for Life vigil in the public right-of-way outside – praise God!
But it wasn't easy. In many 40 Days for Life locations, including England, such victories are preceded by prayer – and often persecution.
Just ask our international campaign director, Robert Colquhoun, who has seen (and heard) almost everything you can imagine – from things being thrown at vigil participants ... to an onslaught from "kamikaze cyclists."
Robert and I discuss that .. and how 40 Days for Life thrives in locations where the power of prayer overcomes the cynicism of the culture ... in this new episode of the 40 Days for Life podcast (click on image below to listen)
Robert – and Heather Gardner, the courageous leader of 40 Days for Life in Austin, Texas – share how they have overcome adversity, saved lives and seen abortion facilities close their doors ... even in pro-abortion cities.
In this podcast, Heather also addresses the need for more men in the pro-life movement ... and the important role they play.
Applications to lead the next 40 Days for Life campaign open in June ... so think about your role! And be inspired by these victories in unexpected places.
40 Days for Life is a community-based campaign that takes a determined, peaceful approach to showing local communities the consequences of abortion in their own neighborhoods, for their own friends and families. It puts into action a desire to cooperate with God in the carrying out of His plan for the end of abortion. It draws attention to the evil of abortion through the use of a three-point program:
- Prayer and fasting
- Constant vigil
- Community outreach
