You’ve been breaking all kinds of records over the last 24 hours!
An exciting 40 Days for Life report, and then an update about tonight’s URGENT webcast…
40 DAYS FOR LIFE
Applications for this fall’s 40 Days for Life campaign are officially underway… and things are shaping up better than we EVER expected!
108 cities have already applied to participate in the September 23 – November 1 campaign — and there are still eight more days for people to apply to lead campaigns in their communities.
This fall promises to be exciting!
If you feel led to help end abortion in your community by conducting a 40 Days for Life campaign this fall, take the first step by applying at:
I apologize for sending so many e-mails to you this week, however this is one of the biggest challenges the pro-life movement has seen in decades!
In just a few hours — at 9 PM Eastern (8 PM Central,
7 PM Mountain, 6 PM Pacific) — more than 25,000 people of faith and conscience will join together to shape history on the “Stop the Abortion Mandate”
webcast that 40 Days for Life is helping to organize.
If you haven’t already registered, do it now at:
The stakes have never been higher. The current health care reform proposals — if enacted in their existing form — would represent the largest expansion of abortion since Roe v. Wade.
The proposals would mandate taxpayer-funding of abortion and would force virtually all Americans into health plans with mandatory abortion coverage.
This abortion mandate simply MUST be stopped.
And on tonight’s webcast, we’ll take the first steps to do just that.
In an unprecedented display of collaboration and unity, more than 70 pro-life and pro-family organizations have joined together for this nationwide webcast event.
The line-up of presenters is a “who’s who” of respected leaders:
* DR. JAMES DOBSON, Focus on the Family
* DR. CHARMAINE YOEST, Americans United for Life
* FR. FRANK PAVONE, Priests for Life
* TONY PERKINS, Family Research Council
* MARJORIE DANNENFELSER, Susan B. Anthony List
* DOUGLAS JOHNSON, National Right to Life Committee
* WENDY WRIGHT, Concerned Women for America
* TOM MINNERY, Focus on the Family
* KRISTEN DAY, Democrats for Life
* CONGRESSMAN CHRIS SMITH, New Jersey
* DR. RICHARD LAND, Southern Baptist Convention ERLC
* KRISTAN HAWKINS, Students for Life of America
* CONGRESSMAN JOE PITTS, Pennsylvania
* PEGGY HARTSHORN, Heartbeat International
* MELINDA DELAHOYDE, Care Net
* JIM SEDLAK, American Life League/STOPP
* DAY GARDNER, National Black Pro-Life Union
* BISHOP HARRY JACKSON, High Impact Leadership
* CARMEN PATE, Point of View Radio Show
* And me, David Bereit, 40 Days for Life
The number of registrations for tonight’s webcast just shot past 25,000 and is climbing rapidly. This has become the largest pro-life web event in history!
The abortion industry is howling about how the pro-life movement is getting organized and focused, the bureaucrats are playing defense, the media has been reporting on the build up to tonight’s webcast, and friends in Congress tell us that Capitol Hill is buzzing about this event.
