It’s time to ring in the New Year. But first, Steve Karlen, Matt Britton, and Robert Colquhoun look back at the highlights—and lowlights—of a year that will go down in history:

  • Increased attacks on pro-lifers--who refused to back down in the face of persecution
  • The 100th abortion facility to go out of business following a 40 Days for Life campaign
  • How Unplanned continues to save lives--nine months after its theatrical release
  • Politicians callously advocating for late-term abortion and infanticide

It was a busy year, and 2020 will be even busier. With the spring campaign starting in just 8 weeks, a Presidential Election, and both pro-life momentum and pro-abortion noise increasing, the next 12 months will be a watershed year in the spiritual battle to end abortion. 

Finally, we offer predictions for 2020:

  • Who will win the 2020 Presidential Election?
  • Is this the year Roe v. Wade is overturned?
  • What abortion developments can we expect internationally in 2020?

Listen in for our bold predictions!

Our our Christmas Eve episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, Steve Karlen, Robert Colquhoun, and Sue Thayer discuss pro-life prayer and witness in light of the God who became man in the womb of a virgin. 

We take a look at the pro-life message from the perspective of:

  • Mary, an expectant, unwed mother
  • Joseph, who refused to turn his back on his bride during her unexpected pregnancy
  • Herod, whose slaughter of innocents prefigures the crisis of abortion
  • The Wise Men, whose search for the God of truth and light resembles the path taken by former abortion workers who become pro-life
  • The shepherds--who, in spite of their lowly societal standing, rejoiced in the redemption won by the Lord

Tune in--and have a Merry Christmas!

We have good news from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: the U.S. abortion rate has dropped—again! In the 47 states that report abortion data to the federal government, the abortion rate fell more than 2 percent. It’s part of a larger trend. Since 2007, the abortion rate is down about 25%.

On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast Steve Karlen talks with co-host Dr. Haywood Robinson and special guest Dr. Michael New about:

  • What's responsible for the continuing drop in the abortion rate?

  • Are lives really being saved? Or is a shift toward pill-induced abortions artificially decreasing the abortion rate?

  • When it comes to abortion, what direction is public opinion moving?  

Not only is Dr. New a leading political scientist and social researcher, but he also leads the 40 Days for Life vigil in Washington, D.C. In addition to offering his expertise breaking down the CDC abortion report, he'll share his lifesaving experiences on the sidewalk in front of the Planned Parenthood facility in the nation's capital.

Mark Cavaliere was a self-described introvert working in a credit union...

...but when he answered the call to lead a 40 Days for Life vigil in his community, God responded by ending abortion in his city--and transforming the Southwest United States. On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, Steve Karlen and Sue Thayer talk with Mark about:

  • The impact an ordinary person's "yes" can make

  • How the closure of an abortion facility in one of America's most abortion-friendly states proves the power of prayer

  • The key to keeping prayer warriors engaged--and on the streets--long-term

Mark and his team changed their community from the ground up. Listen in and find out how you can do the same!

When it comes to pro-life activism--or ANY type of service to God--prayer always comes before action...

...but prayer combined with action is an unstoppable force. On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, Shawn Carney and Matt Britton talk with Priests for Life National Director Frank Pavone about:

  • Why we don't just pray in our churches and homes, but also out on the sidewalks in front of abortion facilities

  • The role of politics in ending abortion--including an update on whether the Trump Administration is keeping its pro-life promises

  • Approaches for activating churches and supporting pastors who stand up for life
