The Passion, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ form a singular event in human history. There has never been anything like it. And there never will be again.

Nevertheless, God continues to speak to His people through Holy Week. The drama, the lessons, the message, and even the people of Holy Week are as relevant to the human condition as ever before.

On this week’s episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we look at the strange cast of characters who appeared during our Lord’s passion and death—and what pro-life prayer warriors can learn from them.

Does legal abortion reduce the crime rate?

That's the argument made by economist Steven Levitt and journalist Stephen J. Dubner in their bestselling book Freakonomics.

Levitt and Dubner argue that:

  1. The demographic most likely to have abortions--impoverished, inner-city minorities--is also the demographic most likely to commit crime.

  2. The crime rate dropped dramatically 20 years after Roe v. Wade legalized abortion in all 50 states.

The Freakonomics hypothesis asserts that the unwanted children who would have reached the prime of their criminal careers in the 1990s were instead aborted, resulting in a drop in crime.

It's an insane--and racist--theory, but one that has surprisingly been taken seriously by many abortion advocates. 

On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we sink our teeth into the Freakonomics abortion-crime hypothesis and answer the question: Does legal abortion reduce crime?

For the majority of the last decade, Kevin Duffy helped develop Marie Stopes International's aggressive program to export abortion to Africa and Asia. Kevin played a big role in pushing abortion on developing countries across the Eastern Hemisphere. 

But then he had a change of heart. On this week's episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, Kevin discusses:

  • How he justified working in the abortion industry--and his exodus from it
  • His advice for those still working in the abortion industry
  • The impact 40 Days for Life vigils make on abortion facilities and abortion workers

From Mr. Potato Head to Dr. Seuss, the world has politicized EVERYTHING!

On this week's episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we talk with award-winning journalist Kathryn Jean Lopez of the National Review about how prayer and contemplation keep politics in its proper place. Kathryn shares:

  • Why the self-described "political geek" whose favorite holiday was election day took a step back from the political realm to find peace in Christ

  • Where the abortion industry and the pro-life movement are headed in the post-Trump era

  • Why and where pro-lifers can find hope in the grassroots pro-life movement
