Even with complete control of the federal government, 2021 was a massive failure for the abortion industry. From record numbers of lives saved by grassroots pro-life activists to effective state-level legislation, Planned Parenthood and its allies suffered loss after loss.
On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, Shawn Carney, Robert Colquhoun, and Steve Karlen break down 7 reasons this year was the abortion industry's worst ever--and 3 more signs that 2022 will be just as bad!
Earlier this year, we introduced you to 10 people you meet in both Christ’s passion—and at Planned Parenthood (podcast season 6, episode 13) as well as to 7 more Biblical scenes that play out on the sidewalk (podcast season 6, episode 43).
With Christmas upon us, this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast walks through 7 scenes from Christ's Nativity that you experience praying in front of an abortion facility.
The recently heard Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization case provides the best opportunity to overturn Roe v. Wade in decades...
...but it also provides an opportunity to reckon with the loss of 63 million lives to abortion since 1973. The intentional taking of human life on an industrial scale should cause us to recoil.
On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, Shawn Carney, Steve Karlen, and former abortion provider Dr. Haywood Robinson reflect on America's shameful legacy of dehumanizing the least of our brothers and sisters.
The Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Mississippi's challenge to Roe v. Wade Wednesday...and it couldn't have gone worse for the abortion industry. One CNN legal analyst described the hearing as "a wall-to-wall disaster" for abortion supporters.
On this week's episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, General Counsel Matt Britton joins us as we break down what went wrong for Planned Parenthood--and what went right for unborn babies and their moms.
This is NOT a drill!
On December 1, the Supreme Court hears oral arguments in the case that could overturn Roe v. Wade.
It's a hearing decades in the making. On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, 40 Days for Life General Counsel Matt Britton joins us to discuss:
It's the pro-life movement's biggest week in decades. Be part of history by praying for an end to abortion!
This Thanksgiving, there's a LOT for pro-lifers to be thankful for. Despite the most extreme administration in U.S. history, 2021 has seen record numbers of:
On this lighthearted episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we cover these--and many other reasons to give thanks!
When Suzanne Guy became pregnant after years of praying for a baby, she was ecstatic...
...until a doctor told her she needed to get an abortion to save her own life. But Suzanne refused to quit fighting for her daughter--even as numerous doctors refused to help her.
On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we talk with Suzanne about:
You won't want to miss this one!
The fall 2021 40 Days for Life campaign has come to a conclusion...

On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, Shawn Carney, Sue Thayer, and Steve Karlen share the BEST stories of the campaign, including:
Tune in for a big dose of encouragement!
The Hyde Amendment has blocked direct federal funding of most abortions for decades. Still, taxpayer dollars continue to subsidize abortion through numerous funding streams.
On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we examine how, exactly, taxes pay for abortion.
Over and over again, Scripture comes alive on the sidewalk. On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we’ll cover 7 scenes from Scripture that you’ll experience when you pray in front of your local abortion facility.
We’re on pace to celebrate the 20,000th confirmed life saved from abortion by the end of the 9/22 – 10/31 40 Days for Life campaign!
But that number is probably just a fraction of the number of babies that have been saved through your prayers. There’s a lot of evidence that suggests the number of saved babies is MUCH higher.
On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we look at the proof that your prayer and peaceful witness saves a lot of babies who are never added to the official tally!
Earlier this month, more than 600 cities across the United States hosted “Women’s Marches for Reproductive Rights.” These marches were prompted by the Texas Heartbeat Act, the Mississippi Supreme Court challenge to Roe v. Wade and other state abortion restrictions.
But while these marches claimed to speak for women, they were profoundly anti-woman.
Tune in to learn 5 reasons the Women's March for Reproductive Rights was misogynistic.
Is abortion ever necessary to save the life of the mother? Abortion supporters think so…and strangely, so do some pro-lifers. You even see pro-life legislation that carves out an exception for when the abortion is intended to save the life of a mother. On this episode, we discuss why the “life of the mother” exception is a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
Prayer, fasting and peaceful vigil in front of abortion facilities are the core of a 40 Days for Life effort.
But every 40 Days for Life campaign also involves community outreach to educate the public on the tragic reality of the abortion crisis.
On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we review 4 key indicators that prove why YOUR community outreach efforts are more critical than ever. Don't let community outreach become the forgotten component of a 40 Days for Life campaign.
We also share 3 reasons you should have CONFIDENCE in your community outreach.
Tune in...and then speak up!
When you pray at your local 40 Days for Life vigil, you might see a powerful response to your prayers. Or you might not...at least immediately.
But behind the scenes, your prayers ALWAYS take a massive toll on the abortion business. On this week's episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, Shawn Carney, Robert Colquhoun, and Steve Karlen discuss 4 ways your prayers impact the abortion facility.
In May, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed Texas Senate Bill 8, which prohibits abortion once a fetal heartbeat can be detected (usually around six weeks into pregnancy). The U.S. Supreme Court rejected the abortion industry's last-ditch appeal to keep the law from taking effect.
Abortion providers scrambled to do as many abortions as possible before August ended. Whole Woman’s Health infamously performed 67 in 17 hours. But now Texas babies are protected.
But what happens next?
On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, 40 Days for Life General Counsel Matt Britton joins Shawn Carney and Steve Karlen to discuss whether the Texas Heartbeat Act at long last provides a legal path to ending abortion.
It’s the oldest, most cliché pro-abortion slogan.
It’s the most popular chant at pro-abortion rallies.
It’s appeared on countless homemade pro-abortion signs...
...but it’s still as popular as ever among abortion supporters. On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we discuss why “My body, my choice” is a bad argument—and one that’s easy to overcome.
Dr. Leana Wen's firing after just eight months on the job as Planned Parenthood's president back in 2019 was a messy split from the beginning...
...but now Wen has a new book explaining:
Leana Wen's tenure at Planned Parenthood was an unmitigated disaster for the abortion industry...
...and it continues to pay dividends for pro-lifers praying to end abortion where YOU live. Find out what the continuing fallout means for your community on this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast.
You hear it from Planned Parenthood. You hear it from pro-abortion politicians. Miley Cyrus even had a cake frosted with the message, “Abortion is healthcare” and posted it to Instagram.
But is it true? Is abortion healthcare? Is abortion in the same category and of the same nature as performing a biopsy or setting a broken bone?
On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we give you three easy ways to respond when somebody tries to tell you abortion is healthcare.
Americans look at Europe as more liberal, more progressive, more post-Christian, and more abortion-friendly. Is that true? On today’s episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we’ll see how U.S. abortion laws compare to the rest of the world. You might be surprised!
You've heard of the Holocaust, the Rwandan Genocide, and the ISIS slaughter of Christians...
...but how familiar are you with the Armenian Genocide?
The Ottoman Empire's annihilation of the Armenian people is less known because it was successful. After the genocide, few Armenians remained to tell the story.
On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we examine four lessons from a successful genocide:
Hurdler Brianna McNeal was set to defend her Olympic gold medal in Tokyo...and then she and her husband conceived a baby.
McNeal had an abortion so she could continue to pursue her Olympic dreams. And she's not alone. The pressure of the world's highest athletic stage, college scholarship requirements, and lucrative endorsements has led pregnant athletes to have abortions.
On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we discuss the dark side of sports--a win-at-all-costs mentality that leads many athletes to choose a game over the life of their children.
How do pro-lifers respond to abortion advocates who claim that God commanded the ancient Israelites to commit genocide--including against children--in the Bible?
We tackle this question--and many other listener-submitted questions on this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, including:
Get your popcorn ready!
The dog days of summer are here. If you're looking to beat the heat (or a thunderstorm) with a movie night, why not watch a film with a compelling pro-life message?
On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, Shawn Carney, Matt Britton, and Steve Karlen share their picks for their favorite pro-life pics. These aren't explicitly pro-life films--but mainstream movies that nevertheless proclaim the dignity of human life.
Karl Marx's irreverent view of religion as "the opiate of the masses" has gone mainstream. Influenced by Marx, secularists increasingly seek to marginalize faith by pushing it out of the public square.
The drive to make religion an exclusively private matter is now in the air we breathe. Even many Christians accept the secular worldview, unwittingly forcing God to the sidelines of our culture.
On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, biblical scholar, theologian, and author of the new book It is Right and Just Dr. Scott Hahn discusses:
