Leading a 40 Days for Life campaign is hard…but it is worth it. Prior to joining the 40 Days for Life headquarters team as campaign strategist, Theresa Endsley served as the longtime leader of the 40 Days for Life campaign in front of the Western Hemisphere’s largest abortion facility.

From saved twins to ambulances to hard days on the sidewalk, Theresa has seen it all. If she can lead a vigil at one of the country’s most infamous abortion facilities, you can do it where you live. Theresa joins us on this week’s episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast to share powerful stories of lives saved, hearts healed, and a community transformed.

Abortion supporters love to claim that science is on their side--but in reality, pro-abortion logic is riddled with contradictions. 

On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we ask:

  • How can pro-lifers be racist...for protecting minority babies?
  • Can abortion be health care...when it's too gruesome, barbaric, and violent to display?
  • Why would bodily autonomy extend to another person's body?
  • Eight more conundrums that make the pro-choice worldview utterly incoherent!

It’s Thanksgiving—and there’s never been more for pro-lifers to be thankful for! On this week’s episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we’ll give thanks for the countless blessings in the best year ever for life!

And it's not just the long-awaited reversal of Roe v. Wade. 2022 saw more pro-lifers trained and ready for spiritual battle than ever before; the biggest and best 40 Days for Life campaigns yet; more opportunities than ever to change hearts; and major legal victories. 

Tune in to celebrate a huge year!

Nov 15, 2022

Leading up to last week's midterm elections, pundits predicted a "Red Wave" that would sweep numerous pro-life candidates into office…but—outside of Florida—it didn’t materialize. Instead, Election Day provided another political disappointment for pro-lifers. What happened? Why? And is there hope for the future? We answer these questions and more on this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast.

Nov 8, 2022

Abortion supporters have long used tragic cases like rape and incest to justify abortion—and here in the post-Roe world, they’ve taken their exploitation to new levels.

But what do the victims themselves have to say? On this week's episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we talk with a sexual assault survivor named Rowan about how she found strength and triumph in choosing life after she conceived in rape.

This is NOT a graphic podcast. Rather, it's an uplifting story of a heroic woman who made her own choice in the face of pressure to abort.  

Nov 1, 2022

Planned Parenthood recently announced plans for an Illinois-based abortion-providing RV that will drive to the borders of neighboring pro-life states to kill unborn babies. It’s a troubling development—but the headline is scarier than the reality. On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we’ll cut through the hype and reveal why mobile abortion units are likely to be just one more failed attempt of the abortion industry to cope with the post-Roe world.

Oct 25, 2022

The midterm elections are right around the corner here in the United States. If you live anywhere near a competitive race, you’re already sick of the endless campaign ads. And in the first post-Roe election, those ads are more focused on abortion than ever before.

Abortion is the hottest of hot-button topics this year, polarizing the electorate and defining partisan identities like no other issue. But that wasn’t always the case. In fact, it’s a bit of a historical accident that the Democrats have a staunchly pro-abortion platform, and the GOP has a pro-life platform.

On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we trace the politicization of abortion in America.

Oct 18, 2022

We've prepared for Roe v. Wade to be overturned for years--which is why we hit the ground running this fall with the largest 40 Days for Life campaign in history.

But Planned Parenthood was decidedly NOT ready for the Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization decision, which sent abortion back to the states. The abortion giant's annual report just came out--very late--and it reveals an organization in disarray:

  • Planned Parenthood has no sense of purpose, meandering from race to abortion to COVID to various other forms of activism;
  • Even after nearly two years with control of the White House and both chambers of Congress, Planned Parenthood doesn't have any major public policy victories to show;
  • Abortions are up...but real healthcare provision is WAY down.

On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we discuss Planned Parenthood's struggles as well as what to watch out for going forward. (Spoiler alert: Planned Parenthood is coming for your kids.)

Oct 11, 2022

It’s another record-setting 40 Days for Life campaign, taking place in 622 cities worldwide—AND it’s election season here in the United States. That can only mean one thing: The abortion industry has gone into overdrive spouting ridiculous pro-abortion talking points.

Planned Parenthood and its allies say a lot of things that are dead wrong, and we’ve covered many of them on the podcast. But on this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we count down the silliest, most embarrassing, most cringeworthy defenses of abortion that abortion advocates are trying to present as serious arguments.

We discuss:

  • Stacey Abrams' outrageous claim that fetal heartbeats are "manufactured";
  • Whether pro-lifers oppose abortion because they want to "control women's bodies";
  • What feelings have to do with the science of when life begins;
  • And more!

 

Oct 4, 2022

Life is winning...and pro-abortion forces in governments around the world are responding by trying to bully pro-life Christians into silence. 

Scotland is looking to ban 40 Days for Life--even alleging that silent prayer could be "far more damaging" to women than abuse.

Meanwhile, the FBI raided the home of a 40 Days for Life vigil participant in Philadelphia--even though local prosecutors dropped charges months earlier. 

On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we take a look at these two examples of state-sponsored pro-abortion bullying and why it is safe to continue standing firm, peacefully praying and witnessing to the dignity of human life. 

Sep 27, 2022

Are you ready for the first post-Roe v. Wade 40 Days for Life campaign? While the Dobbs decision was a historic victory for abortion-vulnerable moms and babies, there’s still a lot of work to be done before abortion ends for good.

On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we discuss what’s different about 40 Days for Life in the new post-Roe world!

We also recap some highlights--and lowlights--of the March for Life UK.

Sep 20, 2022

Bad, selfish men benefit the most from abortion…but many good men have lost children to abortions they never wanted because our culture and our laws deny fathers a voice on the topic. On this podcast, we discuss the hidden victims of abortion--the men powerless to save their children from abortion.

We cover:

  • The legal schizophrenia that grants fathers no rights during pregnancy...but responsibility after delivery;
  • Why men's suffering--and road to healing--in the wake of an abortion is different from women's;
  • How abortion makes men worse;
  • What men can do to address abortion.
Sep 13, 2022

40 Days for Life participants aren't the only Americans launching their first post-Roe campaign. Planned Parenthood and its allies are attempting to scare the public into embracing abortion.

Attack ads across the country warn about "EXTREMISTS" who oppose abortion even in the first trimester and even in the case of rape or incest. But on this podcast, we look at what the abortion industry says about abortion so you can decide who the real extremists are.

Sep 6, 2022

Is contraception a "blessing" that prevents the "need" for abortion...or just another poisonous fruit of the sexual revolution?

On Season 5, Episode 18 of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, "Contraception: the Elephant in the Room," we provided a comprehensive explanation of why pro-lifers should say “no” to contraception.

That podcast inspired one listener and her fiancé to reconsider society's nearly universal acceptance of birth control and to embrace openness to life in their marriage. On this episode, Hannah Morales shares:

The blessings that being open to life brought to her marriage--and to her relationship with Christ;
How studying Scripture and church history cemented her conviction that contraception isn't part of God's plan for marriage and family;  
Her advice for other young engaged and married couples nervous about entrusting their fertility to the Lord.
Rejecting contraception is countercultural, but Hannah's courageous testimony shows why it's a pathway to joy and intimacy.

While individual states continue to sort out the immediate implications of the Supreme Court's reversal of Roe v. Wade, pro-lifers need to keep the long view in mind. In particular, how will the fall of Roe impact the future of medicine? How will the law change--nationally and in the states? And how will the political realm--which has been dominated by abortion for 50 years--be impacted?

On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we'll answer those questions as we address:

  • Does overturning Roe mean that Democrats can be pro-life? Will it lead to more Republicans supporting abortion?
  • What does the so-called life-of-the-mother exception mean--and how will it be handled by the law?
  • Can doctors give Texas moms abortion pills?
  • Will ending Roe will lead to civil war?
Aug 23, 2022

The overturning of Roe v. Wade is a gamechanger, allowing states to protect unborn children—and to send a message to the rest of the world that real progress means recognizing that human rights begin at conception.

But Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization didn’t take place in a vacuum. It’s just the latest in a series of major developments over the last 50 years that have established the pro-life movement as squarely on the right side of history. On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we’ll discuss this—and four more watershed victories on the road toward ending abortion once and for all.

Aug 16, 2022

The Supreme Court put the legal status of abortion back in the hands of the states…

...and in Kansas, voters overwhelmingly decided to keep abortion legal.

What happened? This wasn’t California or New York or Illinois. It was Kansas, the Heartland of America. What do we make of this? Did overturning Roe backfire? And where do we go from here? We’ll answer these questions and more on this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast.

Aug 9, 2022

The reversal of Roe v. Wade sent Sen. Elizabeth Warren into a fit of madness. In an unhinged rant, Sen. Warren demanded that pregnancy help centers in her state—and across the country—be shut down for “torturing” women.

Sen. Warren’s meltdown was bizarre, but it wasn’t unique. Across the country, pro-abortion activists have rallied against, lobbied against, vandalized, and burned pro-life pregnancy help centers. On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we expose these unhinged attacks on the local heroes who equip and empower moms to choose life.

Aug 2, 2022

You know Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood. But do you know the "Father of Planned Parenthood"? 

Dr. Alan Guttmacher was the second president of Planned Parenthood, taking over for Margaret Sanger in 1962.  Both Sanger and Guttmacher were eugenicists—but Guttmacher might have done even more to transform Planned Parenthood into America’s abortion empire. 

On this episode we’ll reveal Alan Guttmacher’s contributions to the greatest human rights assault in history—and why he still matters nearly five decades after his death.

Jul 26, 2022

Last week on The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we shared five arguments abortion supporters are using to attack pro-lifers and pro-life legislation in the wake of the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision. This week, we’re back to dispel five more pro-abortion arguments—specifically arguments claiming that abortions are medically necessary.

Jul 19, 2022

Pro-lifers aren’t the only ones trying to win hearts and minds. In the aftermath of the reversal of Roe v. Wade, abortion supporters are trying to move public opinion to oppose pro-life protections for unborn children and their mothers.

But without the truth on their side, abortion advocates are resorting to lies, falsehoods, and deception to push their agenda. On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we equip you to cut through the dishonesty.

Jul 12, 2022

After the “Leak Heard Around the World,” Planned Parenthood went largely silent. Even facing a monumental Supreme Court ruling that will decimate its core product, the abortion giant spent the month of June tweeting about immigration, "Pride month," gun violence, and everything other than abortion and the Dobbs case.

But the handing down of the official ruling now forces Planned Parenthood to respond. To help us sort through how Planned Parenthood will try to survive in the weeks and months ahead, we talk with 40 Days for Life outreach director and Planned Parenthood insider Ramona Trevino.

Jul 5, 2022

Pro-abortion activists are not handling the fall of Roe v. Wade well. 

From violence to outright racism to a "sex strike," responses to the Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization decision have been predictably (and unpredictably!) ridiculous.

On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we take a look at the 10 worst reactions from the abortion industry and its supporters.

Jun 28, 2022

Roe v. Wade is finished...but the REAL work of winning hearts, minds, and souls is just beginning. On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we reveal:

  • An easy-to-understand legal breakdown of what the Dobbs ruling means--and what it doesn't mean;
  • Why the abortion industry's response was much weaker than expected;
  • How to make sure this historic victory lasts!
Jun 21, 2022

Ramona Trevino didn't support abortion when she went to work at Planned Parenthood. She justified her job by telling herself that her specific location didn't provide abortions. 

But her Planned Parenthood did sell abortions, which forced Ramona to choose between the lives of unborn children and a good career. 

On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, Ramona describes "the moment I sold my soul to the devil." She also shares:

  • Why she welcomed 40 Days for Life participants to her clinic with open arms;
  • The dramatic moment Ramona realized she had sent numerous innocent children to their deaths;
  • How God used prayer warriors to help her leave the abortion industry--even before she lined up another job;
  • Why Ramona came to recognize the moral problems of contraception even before she recognized the evil of abortion.
