Pro-lifers everywhere know that the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision legalized abortion in all 50 states...

...but did you know the case was riddled with intrigue, alliances, wheeling, and dealing? In the upcoming film, Roe v. Wade, writer, director, and actor Nick Loeb shines a light on the decision that ushered in the worst human rights crisis in history. After the breakout box office success of Gosnell and Unplanned, Roe v. Wade is poised to become the latest Hollywood blockbuster to bring the truth about abortion to the big screen. 

We talk with Nick Loeb about how he made the film, why he made the film, and what he hopes the Roe v. Wade movie will accomplish.

"I want to pray for an end to abortion--but how do I pray for an hour (or more!) straight? Won't I run out of prayers?"

It's a common question...but in his Letter to the Thessalonians, Paul exhorts us to "Pray without ceasing." On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, Steve Karlen, Sue Thayer, and Dr. Haywood Robinson provide six ideas for prayer during your prayer shifts at the September 23 - November 1 40 Days for Life vigil:

  1. Formal prayers: The Lord taught us the Our Father, but there are many other rote prayers you can use--and parse--when you speak with God.
  2. Songs, Psalms, and hymns! It's been said that when you sing, you pray twice. 
  3. Scripture: God speaks to us through His Word. 
  4. Spontaneous prayers: Have a heart-to-heart with the Lord.
  5. Silence: Prayer isn't just talking with God. It's listening to Him too!
  6. Specific prayers for specific intentions: Pray for the woman who just walked into the abortion facility; for workers, volunteers and supporters of the abortion facility; or for a loved one who is post-abortive.

We also discuss how pro-lifers from different faith traditions can unite--without abandoning their own prayer style.

2020 has been a year of bad news...

..but don't get discouraged! There's a LOT of good news. On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, Shawn Carney, Dr. Haywood Robinson, and Steve Karlen discuss FIVE signs that prove the pro-life movement is winning:

  1. The pro-life position is more politically popular than ever before
  2. Abortion advocates' rhetoric is getting more desperate
  3. State-level policy is more pro-life
  4. Young people are increasingly pro-life
  5. Pro-life prayer is more popular than ever before

Don't let a hard year get you down. Listen in for some sorely needed good news!
