Who would have ever believed that the President of the
United States would copy a page out of the 40 Days for
Life playbook as a way to push abortion?

But it’s happening — TODAY.

Here’s the national press release that 40 Days for
Life just sent out about this:

FAITH-BASED 40-DAY GRASSROOTS PRO-LIFE OUTREACH GEARS
UP FOR SEPTEMBER 23 LAUNCH IN 209 CITIES; KNOCKOFF
PLAN IS PUSHING ABORTION AS HEALTH CARE

WASHINGTON, DC – “With abortion advocates trying to
exploit the current health care reform debate to
mandate taxpayer funding of abortion,” said David
Bereit, national director of 40 Days for Life, “we are
incredibly encouraged to see record numbers of people
in cities across America willing to take a stand by
participating in 40 Days for Life to speak up for
those who cannot speak for themselves and seek God’s
protection for innocent children in the womb — and
mothers — at risk of abortion.”

40 Days for Life is now gearing up for its largest
campaign to date with 209 cities in 45 American
states, five Canadian provinces and Denmark poised to
launch simultaneous 40 Days for Life campaigns from
September 23 – November 1.

40 Days for Life is a groundbreaking pro-life
initiative that burst onto the national scene just two
years ago, mobilizing more than 215,000 people in 240
cities across all 50 states — and beyond — during
four coordinated campaigns, saving 1,561 lives from
abortion. The community-based 40 Days for Life
campaign involves people of faith in 40 days of prayer
and fasting for an end to abortion, round-the-clock
peaceful vigils outside abortion facilities, and
grassroots educational outreach.

Bereit served as an organizer for the Stop the
Abortion Mandate coalition of more than 70
organizations which held a highly successful
nationwide webcast in July, drawing an audience of
more than 36,000 Americans to oppose the abortion
mandates in current health care reform proposals. Over
100,000 letters, e-mails, and calls to Congress were
generated in response to coalition efforts.

On the heels of these successful pro-life efforts, a
much smaller coalition recently announced its own
campaign called “40 Days for Health Reform” to push
abortion-laden health care reform. The group has
organized a series of events, including a conference
call today featuring President Obama.

“Some say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery,
but using the biblical 40-days concept in an attempt
to salvage floundering health care reform proposals
that would mandate taxpayer funding of abortion and
force Americans into health plans with mandatory
abortion coverage – we are anything but flattered,”
said Bereit. “I am confident that the prayers of
millions of people, imploring God to inspire people to
turn away from abortion, will be a much more powerful
force in shaping the future.”

Yours for Life,

David Bereit
National Director
40 Days for Life
