40-Days for Life During Lent

Abortion Opponents Ready to Launch Focused International 40-Day Campaign During Lent

WASHINGTON, Jan. 12, 2009 ( – From February 25 until April 5, people across North America will join together for 40 days of prayer and fasting for an end to abortion. The upcoming campaign is merely the latest effort of the growing and startlingly effective 40 Days for Life movement.

"As America approaches the 36th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade U.S. Supreme Court ruling that imposed abortion on our nation, pro- life advocates are launching the next wave of a unique pro-life campaign," said David Bereit, national director of 40 Days for Life.

Cities interested in hosting campaigns are invited to apply online at "In addition to U.S. cities from coast to coast, we've also received inquiries from Canada and Australia," said Bereity. Applications will be accepted through Wednesday, January 14.

About Me

My photo
Catholic and politically conservative, I graduated with a BA in History (concentration in American) and Political Science. I'm between two parishes; one in Wisconsin that is fairly traditional, and one in Illinois that is fairly liberal. I teach CCD. I work in the food service industry, which basically means I'm working in fast food until I find a better job. I'd like to work for the church somehow. Right now I'm working on getting my teaching certification, although I'm unsure thats the correct path for me. This blog is as random as I am. I hope you enjoy.
