Yesterday, the United States Supreme Court dealt abortion-vulnerable moms and babies their biggest judicial defeat in nearly three decades by striking down common-sense abortion regulations in Louisiana. 

Chief Justice John Roberts cast the deciding vote. Roberts admitted that he disagrees with the ruling...but sided with it anyway in order to go along with the Court's historical precedent. On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we'll discuss Roberts' betrayal, what it means for the pro-life landscape going forward, and where pro-lifers go from here.

Last week, the United States Supreme Court issued a landmark ruling on sex discrimination...

...but what was it? And what does it mean for pro-life Christians?

On this week's episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, Shawn Carney, Matt Britton, and Steve Karlen break down the Court's Bostock v. Clayton County decision, which made LGBT individuals eligible for employment discrimination protection. We'll discuss:

  • What the Bostock decision did and didn't do
  • How the surprising decision relates to abortion
  • Whether pro-lifers should be concerned about Justice Gorsuch siding with the Court's so-called "liberal" bloc

People often ask, "How many 40 Days for Life campaigns does it take to close an abortion facility?"

There's no easy answer to that question. Prayer is an important factor in closing abortion centers--but it's usually not the one one. On this week's episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we look at why abortion facilities close after 40 Days for Life campaigns:

  1. Public vigils put pressure on property owners who lease to or give space to abortionists
  2. Prayer can help amplify the impact of pro-life legislation, making it difficult for abortion facilities to stay open
  3. By bumping the no-show rate for abortion appointments up to as high as 75 percent, 40 Days for Life vigils decrease abortion center clients
  4. Peaceful vigils magnify the impact of government defunding
  5. Abortion facilities in oversaturated markets are particularly vulnerable
  6. Public witness helps uncover abortion industry legal violations
  7. It's hard to find staffers to work at a facility where pro-lifers pray all day, every day.

It's been five years since David Daleiden released a series of shocking videos showing Planned Parenthood executives haggling with undercover investigators over prices of body parts harvested from aborted babies. 

Planned Parenthood and its friends in the mainstream media labeled those videos "fake" and said they've been debunked. But recently, Daleiden released videos showing Planned Parenthood executives making shocking admissions under oath. On this week's episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, Shawn Carney, Sue Thayer, and Steve Karlen discuss these important updates--and how you can use them to expose Planned Parenthood.
