Though prayer, fasting, and public presence, 40 Days for Life has been very successful in reducing abortions, closing down abortion clinics, and even saving the souls of women who intend abortion and abortion industry workers. Co-founder Shawn Carney joins the podcast to discuss their work and the current situation post-Roe.

Topics include:

  • A 40 Days for Life success story in Manassas, VA
  • Political propaganda against pregnancy centers
  • Government crackdowns on pro-lifers in the US and UK
  • Why there wasn’t rioting in the streets when Roe was overturned
  • Abortion as a crisis of the human heart
  • Why activism not rooted in contemplation fails
