Around the world and throughout history, pagans sacrifice their children to satiate their bloodthirsty gods. 

This isn’t true only in ancient, undeveloped societies. Our post-Christian culture sacrifices children to its own idols. 

Why do paganism and child sacrifice go hand-in-hand?

On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we address that question--as well as:

  • The irony of modern progressives clinging to the most backward of ancient superstitions
  • Why only God’s chosen people can put a stop to the bloodshed
  • The one sacrifice that can reconcile humanity with God

40 Days for Life isn’t complicated. All you need to do is show up and pray in front of an abortion facility for an hour. Former abortion workers report--according to the abortion industry’s own internal data--that when somebody is out praying in front of an abortion facility, the no-show rate can go to as high as 75%.

There’s one step you can take to help push the number of saved lives as high as possible: reaching out to the abortion clients on the way into their appointments. On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we discuss Sidewalk Outreach and how you, yes you, can confidently and painlessly have The Most Important Conversation in the World.

St. Patrick went to a pagan land to bring the Gospel to a hostile people. He faced both rejection and harsh persecution. But he trusted in God, who used him to convert an entire country.  Pro-lifers can look to St. Patrick as a powerful example and inspiration in our efforts to bring the Gospel of Life to the neo-pagans of our post-Christian society. Our Lord's call to make disciples of all nations hasn't expired. And as the Western world runs away from God, we need to evangelize through our pro-life prayer and witness. 

On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, Shawn Carney, Robert Colquhoun, and Steve Karlen discuss the life and mission of St. Patrick--and what it all means for pro-lifers 16 centuries later.

Abby Johnson was Planned Parenthood's employee of the year before she became the world's most impactful pro-lifer. 

Her journey is one of stunning transformation--one made possible ONLY through God's immeasurable mercy. That's the topic of Abby's latest book, Fierce Mercy. On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, Shawn Carney interviews Abby about her first book since Unplanned became a surprise Hollywood box office blockbuster. In this powerful conversation, Shawn and Abby discuss:

  • The Bible verse that weighed on Abby's conscience after she witnessed an ultrasound-guided abortion

  • Abby's response to people who don't believe she is sorry for her Planned Parenthood career

  • A hilarious story about a meet-and-greet celebration Shawn held for Abby after she left Planned Parenthood (and the awkward photo of the occasion)

Tune in for that and much more on a very special edition of The 40 Days for Life Podcast.
